Under The Radar
Under The Radar is magazine, but its also a blog! Such versatility. Coming soon: Under The Radar: The Cookbook.
The Daytrotter Sessions
The Daytrotter Sessions is a music blog dedicated to live performances of bands in their Illinois studio. The bands range from the Mountain Goats and Chuck Ragan to Mates of State and Yoni Wolf. Each performer also gets a fun, colorful illustration. Check this one out.
Wild Honey Pie
This Brooklyn based blog is pretty film intensive – they write about, film, and throw concerts for the bands they love. So yes, the songs and articles posted on The Wild Honey Pie are incredible, but what really sets this blog apart from the crowd are the Buzzsessions (episodes of music videos made by The Wild Honey Pie authors specifically for the website.)
