The Duke and his Duchess seem to be clones of my hubby and me, at least when it comes to their taste in music. The Late Greats is the only blog that I read daily, because I always love everything posted there. Artists we love in common include Eleni Mandell, Sylvie Lewis, The Avett Brothers, Jeremy Fisher, and The Felice Brothers. If nothing else, check out The Late Greats’ One Song Lost Recap series.
Kat’s blog is an old favorite of mine. There was a time when it seemed she was the only one posting old country and folk tunes. Her format is unique, posting songs with little or no description with personal writing that seems ripped from an antique journal.
Craig’s taste in music is so similar to mine that I’ve received emails from record labels addressed to him. I almost always like the artists featured on the blog, and he is obsessively dedicated to posting music that hasn’t been covered elsewhere. Not only has Songs: Illinois led me to great music, but also to other blogs I enjoy.
Boyhowdy and I found each other through Songs: Illinois…as I recall, posting about our love for the now defunct No Depression magazine. I was surprised to find that Cover Lay Down is a relatively new blog, because the content seems so much more eloquent and sincere than what most of the newer breed of bloggers produce.
Another old favorite. It can sometimes be daunting to decipher Sean’s eccentric prose, but also entertaining and refreshing to see so much thought put into it. And often the music there speaks for itself.
