  • hey! where's my blog? :P

    http://dastardlyslife.blogspot.com/
    I usually post my setlists but due to extended time away from SL, rebuilding my club -- worship, extended illnesses, etc, I haven't posted jackshit lately, of any nature. But, I will be resuming set list posts and info regarding worship, other clubs, and events in the near future *crosses finger*
    Also, a great source for finding new music is the Triangle Music blog -- http://trianglemusic.blogspot.com/
    Also, Rance Alva has a great blog: http://rancifer.blogspot.com/

    I'm sure there are many more I forgot but those are great ones.

    www.freeindie.com I love this site. I don't believe it has been functioning for some time but they have a lot of really great artists that have moved on to major record labels and others that you will only find on the net because their unsigned or have disbanded.

  • I covered a lot of bands that found exposure at freeinide. It used ot be a pretty good hot spot for finding new talent but its stopped running for I don't know how long. Blalock is a great resource for finding some excellent indie tunes. There are a few other Blalock-like sites out there that I've used in the past but for the life of me I cannot recall. I think one was titled Navigators Playlists if that helps.

  • Everyone hear about Altered Zones, the new Pitchfork sponsored/founded blog collective pulling together basically every good music blog on the Internet who they already pull from to find new music?

    Read the full story on Pfork.

  • Oh yes and you can also read the Velvet's blog with daily music picks from club DJs, random music news, items of interest, baby seals...

  • So, Altered Zones is similar to a blog aggregator but just limited to the best ot the best of music blogs that feature music to which you'd actually want to listen?

  • The Merge Records Blog has all kinds of great music news/info, mainly from Merge artists, of course, but not entirely, iirc. Plus, if you look at the roster of past & present Merge artists, that leaves room for a shit ton of great musics. At The Merge Records website, you can listen to full-length, unreleased albums online, get free tracks, find out about upcoming releases, perv the tour page, watch vids you can't find elsewhere, & download a shit ton of great music using Merge's own downloader tool. For instance, atm, you can listen to The Love Language's sophomore album & Merge debut, Libraries, in full, for free, streaming. Check it out here. Also of note on the Merge Records' Listen page, Superchunk, Teenage Fanclub, Lou Barlow, Arcade Fire, Caribou, Destroyer, Let's Wrestle, Spoon, more. Yeah, okay, I'm a North Carolinian, so I have a bit of a Merge obsession, but, srsly, this is an incredible site as far as label sites go, imho.

    Davey Swindlehurst has a blog called House Party Inc. where he posts his set lists, info about his sl gigs, info about the sl club he owns with Aislinn Grizlot, the occasional "musical thought of the day," & occasionally other random music info or random music isl info.

    Other good (or at least halfway decent) music blogs/sites:
    Paste Magazine Blog
    The KEXP Blog (Seattle indie radio station) - you can also listen to their stream via this blog
    Indie Rock Cafe
    Hear Ya Live w/ live recordings & daily downloads
    NPR Music - OMG! DROOL!
    EarFarm
    WKNC 88.1 Raleigh, NC - NCSU station blog - you can also listen to their mostly AMAZING station here
    largehearted blog, which is, in their own words, "is a music blog featuring daily free and legal music downloads as well as news from the worlds of music, literature, and pop culture."
    laundromatinee.com - amazing live session vids & free mp3 dls
    Magnet Magazine - one of my fave features is when they have a guest artist/band make them a mixtape

    Just fyi, that may seem excessive, but I do have about 10-20x that many music blogs/sites in my music blog/site bookmark folder, so, really, you got off easy.

    And, last but most certainly not least, Mzdeedee Dagger has a blog for her sl club, The Laundromat, which features music info, vids, mp3s, set lists, event info, etc. Both dd & other Laundromat djs contribute. Check it out
    here.
