A Stacked Deck
There’s a lot of fun to be had in the gloriously splintered world of indie music blogs—but it helps if you’ve got a native guide. And since trusting an editorial organization with your musical education would be painfully old-fashioned, it’s probably best to turn to machines.
Shuffler.fm is our favorite flock, particularly after this week’s redesign. With the help of an iTunes-style toolbar, Shuffler will guide you through a curated list of thousands of under-the-radar music blogs—kind of like listening to the internet on shuffle. You’ll choose a genre, but after that you’re pretty much at the mercy of the blogs.
In other words, click “hardcore” at your own risk.
