Belle and Sebastian and Eric

As I posted before, this blog has become a mini-aggregation site. With Twitter and Facebook's popularity, most bands and labels are releasing information in real-time. There was a time when just passing along a new release, a newly signed band or a free mp3 gave a blog some merit. Just by signing-up for "newsletters" provided a wealth of information. Perhaps readers of the blog don't have the time to sign-up or do not want their in-box clogged-up. It does take time to sort through all the newsletters,blog postings, myspace bulletins, etc. Posting the odd newsletter blurb from an act that may not release material often was really the goal of my blog. I am not sure this qualifies me as a blogger, as I don't offer much in wordy reviews or opinions. A reader can assume I "like" it by fact that I posted about it in the first place.
So, I will continue to "blog" by passing along info that electronic pop / synthpop / indie pop listeners may have read elsewhere. I hope I can continue to share the new music I find, because I believe that we are still a community of sorts.

Here's a new song from Belle and Sebastian. Video was shot live by a fan. A cheerful song, don't you agree?!
