From the Music Blog

A few posts at the music blog:

Acoustic jams from Sinforiano Diaz.

Awesome emocore from Algernon Cadwallader.

Italo Disco with Wish Key.

The Storm at the Gates Riff Rawk cassette.

Baltimore's Swimmers Ear, rocking that shit.

UK electronic Boxcutter, on their new awesome record.

And yes, Adele with her great new single.

An American City, Still Alive

Grand Rapids, Michigan was named one of America's "dying cities" by some rag, and the people responded with this video. Roger Ebert says it is the best music video ever made, and he may be right.

p.s. This is my 1,000th post. Seems fitting.
