The Week in Music…Blogs – May ?? to May 12, 2012

I thought I was having slight technical difficulties with the blog this weekend but now it is more like problems with my internet connection.  Going to try and get the list out anyway.

Dave Reffett from Guitar World interviewed Walter Trout in an awesome monster article that covers the new release, Blues for the Modern Daze, gear, other blues players and much more.

Autopsy IV from Ninebullets.net reviewed There’s A Bomb In Gilead by Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires.

Over on L.A Weekly Blogs, Rebecca Haithcoat interviewed one of my favorite new bands, The Record Company.

Arkansas blues guitarist Michael Burks passed away earlier this week. ( by Matt Marshall from American Blues Scene)

Leanne Sherman from Cat on the Wall profiled The Carpels and shared some of the tracks from the upcoming The Neon Sessions release.

Those couple of weeks I was unable to put the music blog list up I missed several Unsung Heroes of the Blues Guitar articles by musician Peter Parcek. This weeks article is on Jimmy Nolan but if you have a few minutes check out some of the others as well.

Linda Leinen (shoreacres) from The Task at Hand was in Iowa, Louisiana at the spring Rabbit Festival for food, fun and Zydeco music.

Okay, I have tempted fate and my connection long enough and the thought of roasted rabbit is making me hungry. If I missed your post and you would like me link to it please drop a comment on the post or send me an email at guitarkit at gmail dot com

Off to make (sadly non-rabbity) chili!


The Week in Music…Blogs March 24 to March 30, 2012

Pour yourselves a very big cup of coffee ’cause the links this week are going to take a while to work through.

Bluesman Peter Parcek took a little time out of his playing schedule to pen another in his Unsung Heroes series and profiled blues guitarist Leroy Foster.

Moving away from blues, Metal Insider tossed out their Top Five Live Metal Albums of ever and Spin shared several photos from Too Tough to Die,  the soon-to-be published Johnny Ramone memoir.

Jordan Richardson over at Blinded by Sound reviewed the new Cannibal Corpse release, Torture.

Mike Ostrov from Ninebullets.net reviewed Giant Orange from Cheap Girls.

Over on Adobe and Teardrops, Rachel reviewed electronic pop band Xylos.

Sandy Auden from London Calling interviewed Steve Carlson about his music and his “mini” European tour.

Finally, Mark Memmott from NPR reminded us just how cool Earl Scruggs really was while Steve Martin nearly made me cry.



Okay, this is a slightly larger fraction of all the music blogs and posts this week. If I missed yours please shoot me an email or leave your post addy in the comment section below.


The Week in Music…Blogs – Feb 12 to Feb 18, 2012

Rachel from Adobe and Teardrops reviewed the new Ani Defranco album, Which Side Are You On.

Michael Barwise interviewed 17 yr old singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt on Michael’s Music Madness.

Damian interviewed Frank Turner on the Mostless Harmless podcast show:

Frank was kind enough to sit down with me and talk about his early music years and the roads that brought him to becoming a singer song writer. We talk about his upcoming plans for world domination and the daunting task of filling London’s Wembley Stadium…”

Casey Ragan over on American Blues News took on the monumental task of reviewing Omar and the Howlers Essential Collection.

Musician Peter Parcek profiles Hollywood Fats in Unsung Heroes of the Blues Guitar.

Sheryl Bryant at the Raleigh Music Industry Association gets her Piedmont blues on with an article and concert review of  blues musician ‘Boo’ Hanks:

His brand of acoustic guitar playing, sometimes known as “frailing” is indicative of an older technique of guitar and banjo “pickin” whereby Boo’s thumb picks the bass sound while his forefinger picks out the melody on the treble strings. The unique and rhythmic sound creates the illusion that two guitars are being played when in reality it is just one lone acoustic guitar and his master at work…”

More Piedmont blues as Autopsy IV from ninebullets.net reviewed the new Charlie Parr album, Keep Your Hands on the Plow.

Walter Trout discussed his upcoming new release, Blues for the Modern Daze, in a youtube video.

As usual, only a fraction of the cool music blogs out there. If I missed you, send me an email or drop a comment below with the addy to your blog post and I’ll toss it up with the others. Have a great weekend!
