Testing... testing... are we reading...?

Welcome, everyone, to the new home of BeeDub's Spacerock Continuum! By popular demand - and because of the limitations of my previous home as a weekly netcast - I've decided to go podcast! First off, the motto around is here is still NOT ALL SPACEROCK, AND NOT ALL THE TIME. That's because I focus on a wide variety of music that may or may not fall under the wide blanket of the term spacerock. But the vast majority of the music will fit just fine within that categorization, be it PSYCHEDELIC, PROG ROCK, POST ROCK, KRAUTROCK, NOISE ROCK, SHOEGAZE, NO WAVE, EXPERIMENTAL, AVANT GARDE, etc.

I hope to do this monthly. Or semi-monthly. Or whenever I can. The difference is, here you won't get to hear my charming voice periodically describing the music you've just heard. That's okay - I'm no DJ, and I think the music will speak for itself.

The first installment is a little different in that it includes a wider variety (less "spacey", if you will) of musical styles than usual. For January we take a look back at the very best music of last year. One song each from the very best albums to hit my ears in 2007. So hold onto yer hats and glasses ladies and gentlemen - it's gonna be a wild ride, here on... THE SPACEROCK CONTINUUM-UM-UM-UM-UM...!
