Drink Up And Be Somebody

I don't spend a hell of a lot of time perusing the vast number of music and music related resources on the web. There are only soo many hours in the day and so many online videos of adorable animals being adorable. I do however, have a couple favorites that I find myself going back to time and time again.



At the top of the list is the LA-based Aquarium Drunkard. Blogs that blend past and present as well as AD seem few and far between. One day it's a heads-up on a new Harlem track or an interview with Antlers, the next it's a retrospective of Tex Mex Godfather Doug Sahm or a look back at French pop gem "Comment Te Dire Adieu".

Dwelling in the past isn't good, but neither is ignoring it.
