I must have missed that Apple have started to approve Podcast apps for the iPhone, I am really happy that I don’t have to use my Android phone for podcasting anymore (Google Listen is decent, but horribly buggy). Podcaster is probably my new favorite iOS app. Now I can listen to Dr. Kiki without having to remember to sync with iTunes or go through the pain of manually downloading the files to my Android because Listen crashes. Go check it out: http://podcaster.fm/

Yesterday I meet up with Kristoffer (@isallmaroon) and we talked about our next iOS app. I am not going to announce it yet, but I can tell you it involves Music, streaming and metadata madness 🙂 I will post more about it in the coming weeks I hope. But since I am a family man these days a release schedule will be pretty hard to nail down 🙂
I like to listen to new music. I am constantly looking for new music to listen to, obsessively so according to some. At times people have asked me to recommend the new music I find. I am going to try to do that monthly from now. So let’s start with May 2010, which turned out to be a pretty good month for new music!Edge of Dawn – Anything That Gets You Through the Night (futurepop)This is not only the best album this month, but it is also so far the best album this year! It’s brilliant futurepop/synthpop, with Frank’s trademark weird lyrics (Bend over, I want to taste sweat, I want to ride, I want it wild!) and big beats. My favorite tracks are: Beyond the Gate, which features Reagan Jones from Iris, Denial which is a very moody nice track, Save my Soul and Siren’s Call. If you are into electronic music you should get this one directly!
Pain of Salvation – Road Salt pt. One (rock, jazz, 70’s??)So this is a hard one to say a few words about. It’s a very experimental album (but what else to expect from Pain of Salvation), that have some brilliant heights, and unfortunately some pretty boring low points. I really enjoy tracks like Sisters, Road Salt, Where it Hurts and Linoleum, the rest? Nah, far from PoS best record (which probably is Remedy Lane).
Front Line Assembly – Shifting Through the Lens (EBM)FLA is back! Great single. Can’t wait for the whole album! Title track is a great stomper and Endless Void is a nice ambient piece, Angriff is a bit to much Rammstein for me though!
