MML: The 2006 Relapse

Not just one artist today, but ten of them... and they just so happen to be responsible for some of the best releases of the past year. You only need to click and enjoy each song. The entire purpose for this blog and the the MySpace group is to highlight music we love and that deserves to be heard. During the past year we've featured almost 300 musical acts from 27 different countries. All of these artists are worthy of the list presented today. It would have been nearly impossible to choose one over another, and in many cases, that made our decisions very difficult. We are posting these musicians again as a highlight of the year 2006. In order to present a "best of" list that fit well as a single voice or feeling from the past year, it was necessary to start from a simple demo to a top few that were overwhelming and epic in nature. It makes no difference whether it was a single, EP or LP...It just needed to have been released or made available in some form during 2006. For the full effect, please start at number 10 and listen forward without skipping around to get an idea of what the hell we were thinking. Enjoy the music and expect us back at the beginning of 2007 to kick things off once again. xoxo
