This Week In Music Blogs - Week 18/2012

I mentioned on Facebook that I'm trying to simplify things so that I can offer more consistent updates (my Achilles Heel, if you will).  With that, I bring you "This Week in Music Blogs"!  Basically at the end of each week I will round up some blogs offering free music (either full albums or one-track samples) or reviews in handy list form.  Simple, and it helps me empty out Google Reader.  The only thing here is that I'm not telling you what genre each link is - it's a musical discovery.

So, here is my list of recommendations for Week 18/2012!

That's all for this week.  I'll have more next Friday!

#48 - Larisa & The Raindoggs, Sean T. Wright, and Streets of Hastings

Time for another podcast!  It feels like it's been a long time since I've released anything, and in a way, it has.  While I was pretty pleased with the interview with Streets of Hastings, I haven't been very impressed with the quality of the podcasts I've released since then.  I've got a more positive outlook now, so upwards and onwards as they say.  Great music selection today, featuring new releases from plus an awesome cover track to cap things off.  Download and enjoy!
