Mapcast :: January

January 28th 2014


For those new to MAP (Music Alliance Pact), it’s essentially a compact version of Eurovision – without the spandex, violence and soviet subtitles. MAP is a global initiative involving major bloggers from over 30 countries. Each music blog picks their favourite new track of the month resulting in a motherload of a music post which ends up looking like this.

If you’re the #aintnobodygottimeforthat type you’ll be pleased to know the lovely Robbie from legendary Australian music blog Who The Hell? produces a 30 minute podcast with his top picks of the month – which you can listen to right here.


January Mapcast:

Mexico goes chamber-pop, Japan & France have a who-can-sound-more-like-Flume contest. The Gold Coast’s Head Clouds bring the brass section back to Australian indie with‘s own local pick of the month. Colombia & England deliver the goods too but pay special attention at Canada’s Teledrome delivering something which could easily have made Its way into the a dance montage scene of any coming-of-age 80’s high school movie by John Hughes…scarily so even.

MAPCAST is the cheapest world flight ticket you’ll get in a 30 minute audio bite. Merci`.
