Just found the thesixtyone, a social music website with some great new bands. Run as a growing ecosystem, artists can sell directly to their fans therefore circumventing traditional record label ethics. Site’s well designed and hooks you straight into the music. Love it!

Connected: Moon, Maths, Jon Hopkins


  • Moon – Duncan Jone’s homage to classic sci-fi starring Sam Rockwell is out in June. Watching the trailer there’s distinct parallels to Kubrick’s ‘2001‘ and the Clooney version of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris especially with the overall-look of the film. Also worth checking out is Gavin Rothery’s concept art for the film.
  • iPhone Math Apps – Round-up of math apps for the iPhone via Wired.
  • Caught Jon Hopkins supporting Plaid at the recent Ether Festival. Got to say that his latest album ‘Insides‘ is my favourite album so far this year. Top notch electronica!
