App Sales: Black Friday

There are a lot of music apps. For those of us that have been in the community for a while they've all just kind of slowly added up over time. But when you look at the vast sales lists, it is staggering. Here is another lengthy list. In fact it is so damn lengthy I'm not going to try to combine it with all of the other sales going on this week. You can find them here on their own posts: Black Monday, Black Tuesday, Black Wednesday, Black Thursday.

In addition to all of these app sales, there are a couple of deals on Amazon. The Roland TR-8 is down to $300 and there are some nice sales on ROLI gear, including the new Lightpad Block M!

Indie Spotlight

For the week of Black Friday I like to highlight some of my favorite musical discoveries from the past year. This is mostly just to flex my hipster cred, I do run a music blog after-all, but it's also nice to showcase music that isn't getting the attention it deserves.

My favorite new music find this year is an easy pick. K.Flay's subversive take on Pop is probably keeping her from mass appeal, but it is just as catchy as it is punchy. I'm not surprised to learn that she was a double major at Stanford, because she seems way too smart for Pop too. Her vocal style includes a faux childishness that makes the lyrics themselves feel like a horror show. They're well written, evocative, and dripping with profanity. This is exemplified on Blood In The Cut off Every Where Is Some Where.

Forget staggering... what is SHOCKING is how many of these I have bought since the app store opened. Curse you Doug Woods! :-)

Glad you found something you wanted!
Hey Tim, I think your Black Thursday link at the top of this post is broken, just a heads up -- I found the post by scrolling back some, so the original works fine. Thanks again for making these lists! :)

Better be quick. Here in Australia it is Saturday and the app is already back to full price.
