Mixtapes, blogs and all that

Post by Toniponi » Wed Nov 13, 2013 20:22

Hi there! I've been inactive on the forum for a while, true, but I'm back and I come with a topic: What blogs or mixtape webs could you recommend to me? Recently (today) I opened my own mixtape blog but I guess that my mix tapes are not big deal compared to some very interesting things like a e-radio show called "Everything Alright!" that I've been checking recently.

http://mixtapesarefun.tumblr.com -> My own mix site (it's called "Mixtapes are fun!"). If any artist or anything wants me to remove their songs : no problem, but it's not promotional, just for sharing music and fun.

https://soundcloud.com/everything-alright ->That's the Everything Alright thing I told you.

http://tweeranosaurus.blogspot.com.es -> Something like a classic.At least for Spanish pop kids.

http://sotoughsocute.blogspot.com -> A site my flatmate told me, good mixes! Andreas from Alpaca Sports made one recently.

On Facebook there are some groups like "Twee Lovers Club" or "Indiepop" that help promoting new indiepop scene.

So, my question would be : what other sources do you know? Many thanks!

heh, it's a shame my blog is at the top there alphabetically because it's so rarely updated, I might change the name to 'zog of ideas', I'm super tardy when it comes to posting stuff on there...

I just posted the first (and short) real new post in over a year on mine, so yours is a whirlwind of activity in comparison.
