The Myspace Dragon Hoard (2008-2010)

Discussion in 'Music Forum' started by Jacob Tender, Apr 3, 2019.

  1. After MySpace lost all of its music files, it seemed that a massive swath of ap.net-era gold was lost to time. Then an anonymous group of academics surfaced a 1.3TB cache of MySpace-uploaded tracks they gathered between 2008 and 2010. They've made the hoard searchable online for those that don't have the means to store a local copy of the full thing.

    Let's use this thread as a means of surfacing goodies from this glorious dump.

    I recall ripping the Butch Walker Atlanta demo from MySpace because there was just no other way to have it to listen to. It’s still my favorite version.

    Oh man, I loved that Holiday Parade EP with Crimson Red! I’ve been checking their Spotify page every so often hoping to add it to my throwbacks playlist.

    Doesn’t work great on mobile, it seems. I can’t get anything to load up.
     
  7. Their servers are under incredible load, apparently. It'll speed up after the initial wave settles down.
