This week I stumbled upon two really nice music-related blogs.
The first is Your Band, and it was a finalist for the 2011 Bloggies, getting beat out in the music category by the indie music-reviewing Goliath Pitchfork.com. I especially like the features section of the site, where they cover such topics as “Your Next Recording Session: How To” and “Bands Worst Gigs: Gigs Suck Sometimes.” The writing style is clear and conversational, and the information they lay down is really good.
The second is Feminist Music Geek. This blog is more personal in nature, mixing personal stories with feminist critique. With posts like “Why I didn’t Like [the movie] Palindromes” and “Why I wish I was at Our Concert Could Be Your Life,” it’s a fun read with a lot of poignant cultural criticism. Think a smaller scale, more indie-focused Bitch Magazine.
