if you haven't checked out Sigur Ròs, absolutely give them a try. They're an Icelandic band--many of their songs are purely instrumental though. I'd recommend their songs: Fjögur Píanó, Valtari, Untitled #3, and their album "með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust".

really atmospheric stuff.

This is great news! as a small time developer and a new member (by the way, I love the site so far!) I would love to see these additions.

I very recently escaped the reddit drama factory and took refuge here! I was looking for a place with intelligent conversation and good people--something that reddit once had--and found it here.

So far I generally like the layout and mechanics of it all (especially the lack of a downvote button, it keeps everything more civil while still allowing good material to be pushed to the top) and am looking forward to getting to know everyone more, y'all see like a good crew!

Just discovered this guy recently! Great music and seemingly a great personality. If you haven't heard his song 'Late July' you should definitely give it a try, its a great story.

For those of you into electronic music, check out ExMag's new album, Proportions.. solid gold, here's a link: https://soundcloud.com/exm4g/sets/proportions

Other than that I've just been making my way (slowly) through my jazz collection: Miles, Brubeck, Metheny, others. Here's a favorite from that list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loHQdupqcFY

I would think that smartphones would be easier to get away with than not! Many people modify their laptop/pc internals as well as dig deeper into the OS and source code, giving them a greater opportunity to see something they're not supposed to. Think of how many times someone--even a tech savvy person--has cracked open their smartphone?
