This is a great piece on somewhat of an over-played topic. Personally, I think we’re living in the Golden Age of music blogging. Sean has a lot of great points in this piece, and I don’t think he’s as negative as the title of the piece implies. But what’s so exciting about this is that we ARE seeing a whole new paradigm emerge, and that we’re all invited to play around in the space. Most innovative ideas win. It’s fun!
I agree with the points that both Sean and Mark make. We are in a golden age… but at the same time music has such a high turnover rate that it often feels like an album gets only about a week of attention (a week is probably being a bit generous… a day or two might be more accurate). I think the tweet that Sean mentions in his interview sums things up quite aptly:
“Firsties Is Killing Music.”
I’m super slammed with the last week of school and I was feeling a bit guilty about not having time to do a post, but then I saw this sweet mix tape.
Dog bless all the other sweet tumblr pages out there and Dog bless the reblog button.
Secret Meats - a yvynyl mixtape
Once in a while, a batch of songs just simply falls into place. This group did. I hardly had to even change the order in which I had lumped them all into the ‘save for later’ playlist. Each of these tracks is a stunner, and I was too excited about them all to wait to share ‘em. I hope you enjoy this playlist as much as I do.
Please click through to listen to more music by these bands. Most of them are putting out music completely independently and would love the support. Many offer free music, so if you dig a track a lot, why not check out some of their other work. Best yet, buy their records, artwork, merch and tickets to their shows. Support indie artists.

Tender Times - a yvynyl mixtape
This has been a busy summer. As I’ve built this mix over the past month, reconsidering it, pondering it, I’ve swapped songs in and out, never quite finding ‘the moment’ when it all came together. I think it was the new Deerhunter song that did it for me. A kind of anchor. We all need anchors in our lives, don’t we? A kind of benchmark to see how far we’ve come. I hope you’re all finding anchors of your own this summer.
