The Daily Swarm – Heavy on music industry news. Good starting point before hitting sites like Pitchfork. Gives you a broad overview of the whole spectrum. – The gold standard for Chicago Cubs analysis. Andy Dolan (a longtime Cubs fan) regularly posts his criticism of the team and usually to hilarious results.

The Hype Machine – An EXCELLENT music aggregator. This website pulls music from several blogs for streaming or downloading pleasure. A great place to hear rare and unreleased tracks. – Probably the blog closest to my personal tastes. Pretty broad in terms of music they cover.

Oh No They Didn’t! – I’m so sorry.
