I think it's time to give you an overview of all the great other blogs and websites out there about PowerPop.
TooPoppy is the most important blog for news and musical discovery for me. I'm following TooPoppy for many many years now. And that's mainly because of the well written and straight to the point articles and the fine selection of artists.
Starting from news of everything related to The Beatles, onwards to IndiePop (Nada Surf, Del Amitri, Guster) and a whole lot of PowerPop (Mike Viola, Jellyfish, Bleu).
Well, that's exactly my taste of good music! Way to go!
PopFair is THE number one source for live recordings and compilations of rare or unreleased stuff from the best PowerPop artists out there (e.g. Jim Boggia, Adam Levy, Mike Viola, David Myhr, Pugwash).
And then there is also a damn fine year-end top 25 list every year.
Hooks and Harmony
Another favorite of mine is Hooks and Harmony - the site is filled with fascinating album and concert reviews, various interviews and plenty of news.
Another entertaining part of the site are articles about the status quo of the music industry - funny and sad at once.
Aaron Kupferberg fills the superb blog frequently with news, interviews, reviews. It's always a good place to discover some new tunes and bands!
Lojinx is not a blog, but the best IndiePop label (from London) since NotLame, I might say it's probably even better! I'd guess that at least a half of the artists I write about can be found at Lojinx!
PowerPop Overdose is always another good source for news and music discoveries. Good stuff!
Steve Ferra - the writer of Absolute PowerPop - fills the blog constantly with well-written reviews and news!
If you're looking for the best independent or pop music store on the web - look out for CD Baby.
It's not only the shop with the widest choice of artists - CD Baby can be credited to be the shop with the most enthusiastic shipping confirmation E-Mail EVER!
Well... and that's only a small part of the E-Mail...
