Like most people, I like to keep my Fridays as chill as possible. Unfortunately, this does NOT appear to be one of those Fridays for me, with a bunch of stuff to get to by the end of the day. On the bright side, I’ll be jamming to some amazing tunes all day, so it could be a lot worse. One of my all time favorite websites, which also happens to be an amazing resource for finding new artists and songs, is The Hype Machine.
“To put it simply, The Hype Machine keeps track of what music bloggers write about. We handpick a set of kickass music blogs and then present what they discuss for easy analysis, consumption and discovery. This way, your odds of stumbling into awesome music or awesome blogs are high” – The Hype Machine
