I’m going to start posting my end-of-year lists in a few days and then I’m taking a short break from blogging (don’t worry, I’ll be back in 2014). Before all that though, I wanted to write a quick note to thank you for continuing to read and support this blog and make what I think is a pretty reasonable, easy request.
Since I started this blog in 2005 the music blogging landscape has changed dramatically, and while blog readership has dwindled overall, there’s more online channels then ever to listen, share, discuss music (and everything else). So if you enjoy what I do here, I’d love it if you would connect with MFA on some of these channels and use them to help spread the word about this blog and good music in general. In return, I promise to continue posting great new songs, mixes, lists, etc for you guys.
Here’s some places you can like/follow/connect and what you can expect there:
Facebook Page (mixes / lists / notable posts)
Twitter (links / discussion / random musings)
Spotify or Rdio (playlists / mixtapes)
Instagram (concerts / vinyl / photos of my kid)
Flickr (all my concert / festival photos)
Hype Machine (streamable audio posts)
Seen Your Video (music video tumblelog)
Thanks again and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Destroyer's new EP, Five Spanish Songs, his first new material since the wonderful Kaputt is now streaming at Hype Machine. Dan Bejar created this EP, containing his versions of songs by Antonio Luque of Sr. Chinarro, after apparently becoming disillusioned with the English language. Whatever the reasoning, it’s a gorgeous, breezy collection and makes me excited for whatever he plans to do next.
Five Spanish Songs is out 12/3 on Dead Oceans.
