goldfish need music too. this one's taste is ultra-refined. only the best for the fattest fish around. read the blog. we'll drag you through concerts, websites, new music reviews and the same stuff you read everywhere else. except here, we're ruled by a creature whose memory is three seconds long. it's a tough swim.

technical report - we've made progress okay guys, so i know that things on the technical spectrum of NfT haven't quite been in top shape as of late. apparently the page doesn't load properly in FireFox, which i have only recently installed on my own laptop in an attempt to fix the problem over this upcoming vacation. and sometimes the Hype Machine doesn't like the mp3s we post for some reason or another. but we'd like to blame all of this (only half of it is really plausible) on the culprit behind your music sharing and enjoying woes -
those bastards went and changed their system over, claiming it was for the benefit of their users, that the interface was more friendly and efficient and that everything else would be better to use. well you know what? they basically just instituted measures to make the sharing of music with you guys nearly impossible. their uploader strips the artist and track names (ID3 tags) from the files, and reencodes them so that they're crappy quality. nobody wants that, right?
well, we here at NfT won't stand for nonsense of this sort, and so upon kind recommendation, we've obtained an account over at FileDen. so now all of you amazingly faithful readers can obtain your mp3s in proper form and documentation, at 192kbps or higher, the way it was intended.
we'll be considering going back to update the recent posts with updated mp3s, but for now, everything since november 20th has been fixed and uploaded to FileDen, so for those of you who had been posting that certain tracks weren't working, i would recommend that you go back and obtain them all now while they're hot. also, if there is anything older that we haven't gotten to yet that you're dying for, now is the perfect time to put in your requests. think of it as our holiday gift to you. and speaking of holiday gifts, let me just remind you of our ongoing feature, Toaster Does Santa. since all the tracks are up and functioning, here's a reminder of what you've gotten so far:
::::Day 30 - The Polyphonic Spree
The Polyphonic Spree - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
::::Day 29 - matt pond PA
matt pond PA - Holiday Road
matt pond PA - Snow Day
and there it is. the layout of the page will be in testing and redesign shortly, but for now, happy first day of december. take some time to relax with a mug of tea or hot cocoa and enjoy the music.

Happy Xmas War is Over got me thinking about the utter monstrosity of a Sean Lennon/Lenny Kravitz version of "Give Peace A Chance" which was about the suckiest thing ever.Post a Comment
They stupidly wrote new lyrics about PARTICULAR current political concerns somehow missing that the whole point of the song was to PUT ASIDE "this ism, that ism, ism, ism, ism, ism" and just seek peace.
Anybody got this piece of crap?
