From major labels to local DIY imprints, this index features all the labels in the collection.

Music, being the universal language it is, can be used to express almost anything from personal experiences to mythological storytelling, political discourse to existential philosophies. This index is intended to group albums according to themes or lyrical content

You feeling energetic or melancholy? Looking for something hypnotic, cosmic, earthy, or groovy? Browse this index to find the soundtrack to whatever you’re in the mood for.

You wanna search out music from a technical standpoint? This index and glossary categorizes music based on various theoretical tools and instrumentation. If you’re looking for examples of polyrhythms, dissonance, sampling, vibraphone, or bass clarinet, I hope this can be a helpful tool for you.
