  • Other Music's 30 Best of 2012

    Because 2012 may go down in music history for producing such a great crop of new albums, Other Music had to run a top 30 instead of our usual 25. Or maybe the year will be remembered for something else, but we couldn't narrow our list down any further, so 30 it is -- plus the first two awesome albums on our new Other imprint, and 30 stellar reissues. There is no science to our picks, it's just a bunch of record nerds sitting around, talking about all the great new music we heard this year that has stuck with...

  • Klaus Dinger Photo Book Party: December 15th

    There are few artists of any era who are as central to the spirit of Other Music as Klaus Dinger; an early member of Kraftwerk and founder of NEU! and La Düsseldorf, Dinger's life was dedicated to making beautiful, ground-breaking music that has touched too many lives to count and has deeply affected the course of modern music. Dinger died in 2008, and his estate has recently published an amazing book of photos, flyers, artwork and essays about Dinger and the fertile Düsseldorf electronic music scene of the 1970s which he was central to. Other Music is thrilled to be...

  • When Beer & Music Collide

    In case you missed last night's Google+ hangout with Dogfish Head Brewery founder and president Sam Calagione, author and social media guru Chris Brogan, and Other Music's Amanda, Duane and Josh, it's streaming on YouTube. It was a great exchange with all involved having explored Dogfish Head's music-inspired series of beers beforehand -- Bitches Brew (Miles Davis), Hellhound on My Ale (Robert Johnson), Olde School (the Mekons), and Postive Contact (Deltron 3030) -- while listening to the respective artist that the brew had been paired with. Afterwards, everyone got together for a fun, and often hilarious hour-long video chat, talking (and drinking) beer...
