Two new sites I’ve become mildly obsessed with : Videogum and Stereogum.
I had recently lamented about the state of the playlist on my Creative Zen. I was lost! Depending on top 40 stations (two of which now bless the Halifax soundscape, aren’t we fortunate) for new music is good for maybe 3-4 songs a season, but that’s it. And those songs have very short shelf-life on the “songs that don’t annoy the snot out of me” list.
. I’ve only been perusing this site for the past couple of days but it’s already expanded my Indie music vocbulary significantly. So to help you, dear reader, here’s a list that will like, totally blow your mind, or not… whatever… (clicking the names will send you to the youtube videos… do it…)
Not to be outdone is Videogum
, which has significantly expanded my “viral video” vocabulary, and I couldn’t be happier. So go here to see
the virals that captured the inattention of the masses in 2008.
