The Best of 2011- So Far


We can’t believe the year is half over, and what a year it has been for us. After 3 incredible years of following other people’s blogs on electronic and synthpop music, we decided to create our own. We weren’t sure if it would succeed, honestly. Our core music interests lie in synthpop and 80s music, and the genre had begun to fade from public flavor. We weren’t sure if there would still be music to write about, which is why we didn’t directly reference the genre in our name. We were wrong, very wrong, judging from the amount of incredible music that has come out this year and from the amount of readers we have won over. We would like to give special thanks to Daybehavior who included our quote to promote their single and Fil Ok, who has contacted us about using our quote for his press release. We would also like to thank Marsheaux and Kid Kasio who have tweeted about us. We would also like to thank the bands who have posted or commented about us on Facebook or posted our review on their website like Shindu, The Scientists of Modern Music, Miracle, Northern Kind, Starlings and Queen of Hearts (we are sure we are leaving stuff out, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate your support). We also like to thank NewNextNow for picking up our concert review of OMD and publishing it on their website. Ultimately, we like to thank you, our readers. We have grown expotientally, since our first post in March. To give you a sense of this, here is a chart that shows the number of page totals for the 4 months we have been live.

We are so happy you are finding interest in what we are writing about and promise to continue the hard work we have begun for your enjoyment. Feel free to write to us about how we are doing and what you would like to have covered. We promise it will inflate our egos and give us continual motivation. You can email us or visit us on Facebook. We would like to give a summary of the year so far, so without further babbling…
