(La) luna Manifesto

(La) luna is a blog dedicated to the discovery and re-discovery of great music.  As such, it is my goal to make and maintain this blog as a space conducive to experimentation; in other words, it is my hope that (La) luna inspires you to try a few artists you might not have tried otherwise. In terms of content, post-punk, psych-rock and early-goth/dream-pop have been the focus during our first 6 months, but other genres and styles will be explored in the coming months and hopefully years. To distinguish this blog from the countless others out there, I decided at the beginning to provide original content in the form of reviews written for each and every album post. The point of these reviews is to provide some context for, and information about, the music that I post. I believe this approach leads to more musical discovery. The reviews are only meant to express my opinion and are intended to inspire further investigation because the best way to decide the relative value of a piece of art is to experience it for yourself. However, since I provide original content, I cannot post as frequently as other blogs that simply post links and tracklists. In terms of how I decide to post what I post, it comes down to whether I have an album in FLAC and whether I feel like writing a review about it. I do not take into account, nor do I particularly care about, what is or has been posted on other blogs. In addition, a lot of thought and time has gone into the appearance of the blog, which I hope is as alluring and vibrant as the music. Finally, another aspect of this blog that I pay a lot of attention to is communication. I try very hard to respond to each and every comment. The readers are the best thing about creating and maintaining a blog like this and it is my intention to honor this by being an accessible and respectful blogger.  ~voixautre


"Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh. It was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now. As I slooshied, I knew such lovely pictures!"

  2. Anon., while I have no plans to stop doing this anytime soon, a blog like (La)luna is constantly at risk of being pulled down. If such a thing were to happen, I would simply start a new blog. If the day comes when it is too risky to post downloads, I will convert the blog to a review-only site. In other words, I will still do this in some way, shape or form, so you'll be able to find me :)
