There's dozens upon dozens of (vaguely) categorised mp3 blogs, which should keep you and your high-speed internet connection merrily ticking over for weeks... Happy listening.

gah, redundant apostrophe in the post title there, sorry.

(note to self: do not trust spell check to catch my own stupid grammatical errors.)

m_b, I like to use Webjay to preview the tracks available at mp3 blogs. Saves me from wasting time downloading where 90% of the stuff I'd rather not keep.

Thanks for the pointers, although I'm pretty familiar with most of that info. I use The Hype Machine, which aggregates posts from several mp3blogs I enjoy.

In a very cursory scan of the blogs, I've already been introduced to a delightful genre - Yu-Mex! Thanks.

If anyone is interested, I co-edit Said the Gramophone (under "Eclectic").

We've been running since the winter of 2003, posting tracks every weekday by bands like The Arcade Fire, Okkervil River, Wolf Parade, Sam Cooke, Arvo Pärt, Avril Lavigne, Bulldog, etc etc etc. This week: Smog, Ray Charles, Kate Maki, Weezer, Petr Nikl & Lakome Barky, and more. Please do visit!

Thank you so much, noizyboy! I've lost a couple of hours already. Say can anyone point me to an electronic music blog?

Thanks Marquis. I've had Gramophone's feed in my RSS Reader for a while now... good stuff. And it works with the Greasemonkey stream mp3 script, which I consider essential for browsing mp3 blogs... if you actually want to listen the music before downloading it...

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

via a mate's blog actually. But I see it's now turned up on boingboing as well, so it's well on the way to being old news.

Music (for Robots) covers a lot of electronic music, and dabbles in other genres as well.

I'd like to point out Teaching The Indie Kids To Dance Again, because "feet are for dancing, not for staring at".

For thekorruptor, regarding electronic music blogs:
I've been checking Gutterbreakz, 20 Jazz Funk Greats, and Radio Free Polygon.

We live in a golden age, people. I've got like fifty of the things bookmarked, and my relationship is suffering as a result.

I'd add a few more to the list everyone's compiled; The Real Thing, Headphone Sex, Bubblegum Machine, Aurgasm, Scissorkick and Fluxblog.
