The Weekly Reaping (18.April.2010)

Posted: April 24th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Articles About Music | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , | 1 Comment »

It’s been another great week for music.  Plenty of new releases worth checking.

This week I’m adding  a new aspect to the reaping.  While I would love to be able to give you a rating for each album listed, that just wouldn’t be possible, because I rarely have time to listen to all of the albums I will post.  But what I am going to do instead is highlight one of the albums in red to signify my most loved release of the week.

Lead singer Ryan O’Neil and bassist Dan Perdue of Sleeping At Last have started a new blog that I think is worth checking out.  So far it has just been some ramblings on their time on tour and random bits of whatever that they find interesting.

Paste Magazine has teamed up with the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival to bring us a free music sampler with songs from several artists that will be performing at this year’s festival, including She & Him, Dr. Dog, Blitzen Trapper and many more.  Click here to download your free sampler: 2010 Paste Magazine Bonnaroo Sampler.
