Nonstop Pop

FT + New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 217 views

Nonstop Pop: good and friendly indie-oriented site – i.e. the “pop” is of the Go-Betweens and Interpol variety.

Mochi Manifesto

Mochi Manifesto: embarassingly I was sure this was already on my sidebar and it turns out it’s not. Alex Honda talks about good modern music.

nightclub jitters: another very nice looking website (does anyone want to redesign NYLPM??) covering Beck, jazz, Flaming Lips – this week, at least.

The Mix Project

The Mix Project: now this is the business. Interesting choices, interesting words. You’ll want to hear all these songs, which is still sometimes the point.

NEW ARTILLERY

NEW ARTILLERY is another indie-oriented thing, from Sebastian Stirling who used to publish Signal Drench, which – and I apologise if my memory of interweb rockcrit is rusty here – went under when it mentalistically decided to try and emulate Pitchfork’s four-reviews-a-day schedule. I like this more – it’s more relaxed and intimate (and very nicely designed too).

The Rub

The Rub: it isn’t (ha ha). I think we’ve linked this before. Indie-oriented music weblog, to-the-point and well-written. Also very tasty-looking: I had no idea pitas sites could look so nice!

A Face in the Crowd

A Face in the Crowd: and another new blog (yes, I’m going down an ilxor.com plug-yr-blog thread). This is by o.nate, a well-regarded ILM regular, talking about Astrobotnia, Carter Family, Sonic Youth (everyone’s talking about Sonic Youth at the moment).

Smote Thy Brother

Smote Thy Brother: new(ish) music weblog. Don’t be put off by the (current) top post though (music weblogger bored of music! Will wonders never cease?).
