Thumbs up Music Blog definitive directory - post up when you find 'em!

Starting up a sticky thread here to hopefully make a cool and reasonably definitive list of great music blogs from around the web. There are so many different themed blogs looking at all aspects of new music and classic rarities which are rich information and musical reference resources.

Here's a starter...
Dollar Bill Jams
A great resource for discovering lost and rare vinyl classics. We like this blog cos they encourage the listener to seek out and invest in the artist should they like the tracks.. and openly ask artists/labels to request track removal should they require it...

So when you come across a music blog that floats your boat,
Post It Here!

PS: If you missed the 'Hype Machine' post recently, check that HERE

Default good idea!

Here's a couple I read on a regular or semi-regular basis:

analog_industries | analogindustries.com - Chris Randall's blog. Hilarious, well-written, biting, everything a good blog should be. The guy makes good plug-ins as well, although I'm not as big a fan of his music as others.

ProToolerBlog - pretty Pro Tools centric (who'dathought?) - but a useful resource nonetheless. Occasionally errs on the side of too many outright press releases, not enough commentary, but it keeps me up to date with what's new in RTAS land.

Create Digital Music - I used to like this one more, it's pretty much found its' niche in electronic music now which isn't my thing but still has the odd good post about something more general.

Music Thing - Music Thing - been around for a while, arguably not updated enough, because what is posted there tends to be very good. Covers a lot of ground!

I have to admit to being biased about Imogen Heap, 'cos she's gorgeous, talented and wonderfully bonkers (as only us British are!), some might go as far as to day she's as mad as cheese. She has been producing a great video blog charting the build of her own studio and the writing and recording on her next album.

Have a look, but prepare to get hooked!

Didn't think I'd find anything quirky, but I like what this blog offers:

Trash Audio

I might get involved in the 'Digital Drugs' post.

Tom Ellard's blog. Hilarious. Scroll down for some brilliant musings on Pro Tools 8 and "Speculsonics Tragisphere."
