Indie music blog. Their music, our words, in perfect harmony.
Today’s blog love post is dedicated to bloggers who spread the word about awesome music.
I’m starting this tradition to acknowledge and link people who love music so much, they blog about it. These are the people who help us discover great bands. I hope it’ll help to feature great music blogs from all over the world and artists all across genres.
Once accepted, the award process has five steps:
Q1: What does music mean to you?
I can’t live without music. I mean, physically of course it’s possible but my fragile mind quickly descends to darkness without music.
Q2: What is your first music-related memory?
I must’ve been 5. Living in a small village, I was allowed to come home alone from pre-school in the last year. It was exciting and I was so ecstatic, I sang along all the way, all the whole 5 minutes it took me to cover that distance lol. And when I got home my mum was singing the same song because she secretly followed me… Mums, eh? They never stop worrying about you.
Not much later but totally unrelated to me, the musical genius that is Freddie Mercury, sang that same song in Budapest.
Q3: What was the first album you’ve purchased yourself?
I grew up in Hungary and it was a local artist. Even if you don’t understand the words, you’ll love her voice – it’s so clear and so polished.
She was my mum’s age and I was very proud of my decision not to get some bland music my classmates liked. It didn’t make me popular but I listened the shit out of that cassette! (Oh yeah, I had an actual Walkman!)
Q4: What was the latest music you purchased? (No online streaming or free downloads, I’m talking about cash here!)
I mentioned before that I’m barely surviving on my mobile data which is way too expensive in Spain for my liking. So I haven’t bought a lot of music recently but for many reasons I couldn’t pass by the EP that accompanies a book series about a teenage band. (It’s an awesome concept, read more about it here, on my other blog.)
Q5: Which song did you listen to last? (No cheating, come out with the dirty pleasures!)
I have dirty pleasures from Britney Spears to Lady Gaga but I actually listened to Walking On Cars the last, simply because it’s one of the few bands that were allowed to stay on my phone. (Storage issues… sigh…)
I’m still just discovering all the great bloggers out there but I can assure you, you won’t regret checking out the 5 below.
First, I’d like to share Rebecca’s blog. I’ve discovered her on twitter where she supports great indie bands with a lovely enthusiasm. And as myself being partial to Irish music, I enjoyed her interview with Eoin Glackin a lot. Follow her on twitter, too, she’s a hoot.
Mary’s Jingle Jangle Jungle is full of great stories of bands and songs, if you’re interested in music from the 60’s and 70’s, she’s loads if info about it! I especially enjoy her Battle of the Bands where she’s bringing great versions of already good songs.
And if we’re at the Battle of the Bands, which is Stephen’s brainchild, you’d better check him, too. Stephen has a great style and it’s a pleasure to read his posts.
Katya is an equally good read, and we have very similar taste which is always a plus 🙂 I especially enjoyed her SafetySuit concert review, had a great personal touch and an engaging style.
I simply love EQ music blog. They bring a lot of new music, like X&Y to my attention with classic journalistic review.
That’s my five for this week, but I’d like to give a special shoutout to the Love Is In Da Blog challenge by Bee whose idea inspired me to connect to the blogosphere better and who introduced me to many lovely bloggers in a number of topics. Thank you Bee for this month’s challenge, your visits and all your hard work!
Hope you’ll enjoy these bloggers as much as I did and watch out for the next #MWA instalment next Friday.
