I never claimed to be a know-it-all in regards to music; but it has become overwhelmingly apparent that there are well over 50 (and counting) music blogs that are finding artists that I never heard of....Which is beautiful.
I guess some time in the near future I will plug what I humbly think is the cream of the crop...
For now (for those who are interested in potentially hearing stuff they haven't), what I've been listening to lately is Liz Phair's reissue of 'Exile On Guy Street', Fleet Foxes self-titled LP, and Bon Iver's 'For Emma, Forever Ago'.
Granted, it's more likely that you HAVE heard these albums - but if you're between the ages of 12 to 16 then you probably haven't heard these albums and you desperately need to.
