Here’s the monthly installment of standout tracks posted on 1000x/minute, this time for July. Electronic music has persisted as a major trend for me this year (with some heavy hitters on this month’s lineup), but when it comes down to it, there’s nothing quite like cranking up the distortion levels on a guitar/amp and belting out a melody. This month features a fair mix of the two, plus some acoustic gold thrown in for good measure.
