If you’re looking for fresh new music, music news and poignant information surrounding today’s music, as curated by some of the finest youthful connoisseurs the world has to offer, you can forget about tuning in to Pandora, Rolling Stone or MTV right this very second.
In today’s post I will share with you not just one, two or three of my favorite music/entertainment blogs/sites/portals, but a total of seven. Yes, seven.
Why seven? Because a) it is an odd number, b) one, three and five just weren’t enough and c) because 7 8 9. Get it? Seven ate nine!
Enough with my lame preschool jokes… let’s discover some really awesome resources for learning about new music on the web!
no particular somewhat-alphabetical order, here are 7 Undeniably Awesome Music Blogs:
Covering the worldwide spectrum of all things falling under the guise of electronic dance music, Gotta Dance Dirty remains one of the tried and true sources to keep your finger on the pulse of whatever is getting the dance floors jumping. Oh, and I almost forgot…they cover events in several major US cities and provide 10-packs of free downloads every week titled, The Dirt. Well worth checking out if you’re not already familiar.
I’ve only recently discovered the musings of EDM Insider, but was immediately smitten with the level of professionalism which oozes from every pixel of their online presence. Based in NYC, this site offers the whole enchilada when it comes to dance music, and with interviews, reviews, event coverage and more from their collective of worldwide contributors there’s few stones left unturned in their EDM-related content stream. It might be a lot to wrap your head around at first, but even picking one out of every ten posts should keep you dancing.
Whether you’re looking for new music from extremely popular artists, up-and-comers or the guys in the garage down the block, Pigeons and Planes does an extremely great job at covering a wide variety of music styles in varying levels of popularity. Combining these polar opposites is much like the name Pigeons and Planes, where they both perform similar tasks, albeit in extremely different ways. We are confident you’ll enjoy what you find in their corner of the web.
Focusing more on indie/underground music of all types, most notably though hip-hop, Potholes In My Blog does a fantastic job at covering all the things a music blog should be covering: new music, breaking artists and album reviews. Add in a plethora of free MP3s and podcasts, along with semi-opinionated “rant” type content, their site always makes for an interesting visit. Oh, and did I mention they run their own label? True story.
I’ve been personally following The 405 out of
Los Angeles the UK for about four years now…ever since they took a leap of faith and decided to write about my music. Sure, I might be a bit biased here, but that doesn’t mean that their site isn’t super clean. Nor does it mean that they don’t have sections of their site dedicated to music festivals, videos and all of the other things that make music/entertainment sites what they are, like album reviews, interviews, free MP3s and more. Oh, and one need not live in LA the UK to appreciate their coverage, although it certainly wouldn’t hurt to fully understand how they got their name. Hint: It’s a freeway. Hint: It’s a rooftop jacuzzi. lol
Another site that I’ve been following for just about four years now is The Music Ninja. …and they too also felt my music was worth writing about! Don’t get me wrong, I love receiving feedback on my music, and Blas at The Music Ninja had some fantastic things to say in his write-up, but that IS NOT why I’ve chosen to include this entry in today’s list. This site has their finger on the pulse of virtually all things musical that are worth listening to. In short, there are very few posts that don’t merit a music enthusiast’s attention. What are you waiting for? Click over to their site NOW!
There has been quite the dispute over what exactly getting “crunk” means, and to this day I’m still not completely sure myself. What I can assure you is, that in terms of remix/mashup music culture, there is no other blog/site/entertainment portal that does as good of a job at maintaining lavish coverage of dance floor heat-seekers that have been previously made popular somewhere else. Still dig that 80′s jam that everyone else forgot about? More than likely there’s an updated remix/mashup of it featured somewhere within the bytes of data found at White Folks Get Crunk. Oh, and just because “white folks” are mentioned in the site name, doesn’t mean that they’re racist. It’s really just a play on words. Really.
