The first? A veritable avalanche of Metalocalypse-related goodness. The video game and the longer episodes are intriguing but puzzling – can they sustain the brutal goodness over more time and different media? The new season and album are solid guarantees, though. And the tour promises an intriguing combination with an as-yet-unnamed partner. Bryan Beller (live bassist) promises they will crush.
Second, Propellerheads’ Record software is in open beta, and it sounds great so far. I’ll write more on my experience later, but I’ve come up with some interesting tracks with it, and it’s quite easy to work with. Combine it with Reason, and I dig it much.
Finally, there’s this Ropeadope sampler. I enjoyed a lot of their early releases from DJ Logic and the like, but the new crop sounds pretty good, too. Give it a shot – it’s free.
