so apart from DiS and pitchfork (and nme) what other sites do you guys browse for music news and reviews etc?
Mainly for news. I rarely, if ever, read reviews.
and Dime a dozen
generally just repeats news from elsewhere, but the interviews etc. are sometimes good.
tinymixtapes.com is awesome. i went through a phase of submitting like ten requests a day - none got made and i was racked with grief.
but only if you're a fan of instrumental music. Still, only site that actually covers that, and it does it very, very well.
I also browse The Wire and loads of electro blogs from time to time.
www.paperthinwalls.com is also tops.
Jockrock-To laugh at the ott comments from many various musicians in Scotland attack each other via message board Funny stuff!
The Pop Cop- A well wrote blog that keep’s up-to-date with all that’s happening in the Scot’s music scene. Thou can be too GLASGAE centric it’s
Good to see band’s getting a good write up
Vinyl Villain- Another good blog! This one focus more on various 45’s released over the years. With a personal write up from the vinyl villain explaining what the song means to him.
That is all
pretty good for music vids & interviews
www.dustedmagazine.com, although one of their writers wrote one of the maddest reviews for the last animal collective effort.
thelineofbestfit.com with an S
lots of free mp3s and mixes too.
its not amazing but it does have loads of free music on it
general entertainment and some good writers on there as well.
That the NME is cool, then i suggest www.realitycheck.com
but they no longer update it. It's pretty much here, Pitchfork and last.fm for me.
loads of guestlists on the go, especially in london.
for best and most trustworthy reviews on the internet. Especially good if you like things off the beaten track / weird metal and noise.
i use these quite a bit...
and of course DiS' very own minimal techno thread, as unofficially curated by me and jimitheexploder!!
arguably the third curator
