The Best Thing About MP3 Blogging

The two best things about creating a blog are finding old music you haven’t listened to but stands the test of time and sharing it with other people and finding new music (actively looking for…) on the web. Blogging forces someone who already spends too much time listening to music to do it even more. So I was happy to find some mp3′s on the web that fit into my criteria. Jesse Sykes and The Sweet Hereafter are on Barsuk Records (home of Rilo Kiley and John Vanderslice) and from these song selections they play weepy alt-country, Jesse Sykes has a great smoky/smooth voice and she has collababorated on her new record with Whiskeytown founding member Phil Wandscher. It’s amazing that from Whiskeytown you got Ryan Adams, The Damnwells and now this. Here’s a song from her new record oh, my girl and one from a previous record Reckless Burning:

    I’m trying to launch a music blog focusing on the NC Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, and she’s on my “coming soon” list.
