Elsewhere: Hole, Elspeth, The Stone Foxes, Abby

It’s been a while since I had time to read other music blogs, let alone post about them. But it’s a lazy Friday and I’ve been browsing elsewhere, and found some great posts to share with you…

First up is Muruch‘s occasional Chicago gig reviewer Chelle‘s heartfelt, eloquent essay on her Northern Downpour Tumblr regarding her history with and deep love for Hole’s Live Through This album (still one of my all-time faves) and all things Courtney Love.

Next Rawk Blog shares a fantastic mp3 of “Song for Goodbyes” by Irish rock band Elspeth, which Dave accurately compares to The Bends-era Radiohead (the best Radiohead era, in my opinion).

My girl Tart at Love Shack, Baby has the great, retro-influenced blues-rock mp3 “I Killed Robert Johnson” by The Stone Foxes.

And finally, my favorite blog post series continues to be Abby’s Road. Her most recent ramble is about nostalgia and music.
