I’m one of those girls, Bits and Bramblers. One of those girls that has waaaay too many CDs, along with an iPod that holds a ridiculous number of songs. I’m one of those girls who burns CDs for special occasions, and says things like, “What do you mean you’ve never heard of Vampire Weekend? Never mind, I’ll burn you a mix CD.” That’s right…I’m an all-out music junkie.
Which is why allmusic is maybe one of the best websites ever. It’s got everything. On the front page? Music news. New Releases. An album of the day! But you’ll find the best stuff when you search for your favorite singer and/or band. Then you’ll get a biography, a discography (every album, and they year it was released,) along with a list of all their songs (complete with sound clips!)
Best of all, the site also gives you recommendations. For example…now that I’ve got you interested in Vampire Weekend? Allmusic says you might want to check out Ra Ra Riot (and they’re right…you totally should, that band is made of awesome.) What’s that? You’ve never heard of them? Never mind…now you can look them up on allmusic. And being an all-out music junkie, I’ll leave you with one of their music videos. Enjoy…and rock on, Bits and Bramblers!
