Musical Linkgasm

Here are some of my current favorite music blogs – just in case you, like me, don’t have enough music to listen to. (Kidding!)

Silence is a Rhythm Too has been around for a decade! It’s interesting because it reflects the taste of a single blogger.

Mashuptown focuses on, you guessed it, Mashups! I am consistently amused and impressed by how seemingly disparate songs can be, with editing skill, seamlessly blended into something that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Cover Me grew out of a cover songs radio show; posts focus on cover songs (of course), tribute albums, etc., including links to free downloads. Covers often give a new take on songs, similar to mashups, in a way.

I also continue to love Cover Lay Down, which focuses on folk/Americana covers of all sorts of musical genres. You can find more Americana at A Fifty Cent Lighter & a Whiskey Buzz.

Keytars and Violins gives weird art along with techno and house tracks.

Lend Me Your Ears “appreciates less obvious music.”

Finally, Aurgasm, “your favorite music you’ve never heard,” doesn’t actually focus – the blog has presented everything from scandinavian to brazilian to bluegrass to electronica.
