Best Of MP3.com 2011: Vol. 4

Dec 15, 2011 12:00 PM by Michael Verity

These days, country music can mean a whole lot of things. It can mean the traditional croon and swoon style of Patsy Cline and Hank Williams (both of whom seem to pop up on everyone's influence list, even the rock and rollers). "Country" can mean the thumping bass and frantic banjo of bluegrass, the gritty grimy guitar of Neil Young or a classic four chord homage to the working class hero. For this Best of MP3.com 2011 list, we offer 10 Kinds Of Country.

Best Of MP3.com 2011: Vol. 3

Dec 15, 2011 6:00 AM by Staff

These picks come from Owen Stretch, the director of content at one of our sister sites, MetroLyrics.com. To give you an idea of where I was coming from when I put together this MP3.com Best Of 2011 list, I should tell you that right now I'm sitting in an office in Vancouver, Canada. It's cold in Canada in December (if you haven't heard), so you might notice my desire for a warm summery beach coming through a bit in my picks. There are a couple of could-be pool party anthems, a couple ideal road trip songs, and a bunch of overall feel-good music, all of which might be described in one word as "sunny."

Prime Cuts Playlist: Drop The Needle, Hear A Song

Prime Cuts Playlist: Drop The Needle, Hear A Song

Dec 14, 2011 6:00 AM by Michael Verity

Like a Christmas stocking full of things that don't actually go together -- chap stick, hedge clippers and a half-dozen mini vodkas from a hotel honor bar -- today's Prime Cuts Playlist consists of three cuts just tossed into a sack at random. But it just so happened we like them all: a bedroom studio maven from the UK, an Irelander who plays 10 instruments and an encore from band we dig in spite of our confusion.
