Radio Free Gunslinger
is a music podcast by the blog If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats (previously)
A guided tour through the chthonic regions of 20th century Western culture and the society it reflected.
At least that's what it says on the wrapper.

Fifty+ Music Blogs. If you on occasion like wfmu's Beware of the Blog
, you'll like these on occasion as well. Mostly strange, exotica, hip hop, noise, electronic, experimental, punk, industrial. No single-artist blogs. Updated seldom to constantly, all field tested at time of this post. Arranged alphabetically. All have free downloads. Some include videos, some contain images and sounds not appropriate to all ages or workplaces. Some have appeared at metafilter before, others have not, this list generated specifically for this post. You’ll find something new to listen to here, I assure you. [more inside]

Button du Jour.
A charming semi-daily imaginary vignette featuring food, fashion, music, and an exotic location -- all inspired by a beautiful button.

No Condition is Permanent.
World music, and African music in particular, often falls into two categories: pleasant and inoccuous, or the fetishized other. Even speaking of "African" music is misleading. Senegalese mbalax doesn't sound that much like Camaroonian makossa.
And I don't say this as some great authority; I'm still just at the beginning of the learning curve.
So come along with me. There's the broad Benne Loxo du Taccu
, the sidebar of Mudd Up!
, the great (and self-explanitory) African Hiphop
, Stern's Music
(this link going to a more accessible Thione Seck), Aduna
(for Francophones— my middle-school French gets me by, but I'm really there for the music), Du Bruit
(more Francophones, with an emphasis on vinyl sharities), and Worldly Disorientation
(which covers all sorts of world music, but has some excellent African stuff).
Have I missed anything great? Recommend it in the thread. I tend to prefer the psychedelic and dubby stuff more than straight folk styles, but that's me.

is out, it's been under development for a while now by the good people at Downhill Battle
. It's a really simplified way of uploading files for the bittorrent network with an integrated client/server solution. Right now the client side is windows only, but the core functionality works with any client of course. Pretty neat.

Music crticism in weblogs:
Chat rooms and vanity sites seem so mid-’90s in internet terms, but the future of music criticism is lurking deep in the blogosphere. An article from Toronto-based free magazine, Exclaim!

The idea: A place for posting songs where they might actually get heard -- preferably someone who can help get it published. We've teamed with SuperfastNetworks to create the first song blog**.
Will the the Metafilter Music Channel
be next? **Actually it works with any digital content.

are out; blog names
are in. All of us musical inepts who spent more time thinking up band names than actually learning to play an instrument now have a purpose for our great list of names that rock your world, dude! Here's a really brief list of blog names grabbed from Linkwatcher
, any one of which could have been a band name:
Virulent Memes, Grouse, The Dome of the Sky, Underduck, Sixth Dev, Ten Reasons Why, Industrial Technology and Witchcraft, Phester, Hopeless Romantics, Next Generation Degeneration, Being Terran, Hit or Miss, Entropy, Wee David, Kitty Kitty, Inexplicable Fancy Trash
, etc etc.
On the flip side, you could use random band name generators
to come up with blog names, too.
Some people compile lists
of band names. Of course, some sites take band names seriously
What's your best band/blog name ever?
