The (not so) new generation of music blogs or mp3 blogs or whatever you may call it are indeed a great idea.
With the right setup you can spend part of your (working) day listening to new music with just a few clicks of the mouse.
The concept is very simple: mp3 tracks which are presented as samples of a band’s work or album and which are available for a limited time-span so as not to irate the RIAA gods (or is it demons?).
I’ve had a leg up from Fred on catching up on the interesting blogs and even though I’ve only started “tuning in” a couple of days ago I’ve already discovered quite a few good songs and bands that show great promise.
