The gaping void being caused by the fact that I've been slacking on the consumption of my mainstay music blogs (Fluxblog, and CYSTSFTS), Fluxblog because I've instead been reading Matthew Perpetua's personal Tumblr, which has great content and 1000% more Pavement, and CYSTSFTS because I've only been going there to check if the new It Came From The 90's volume is out yet.
I can't believe I haven't heard more about The Tape, I discovered it while randomly clicking from blogroll to blogroll which is how I find most of the music blogs I like.
The best thing about The Tape is that it is simply well written. With 6 writers, all with varying tastes, The Tape covers the bases of musical genres, and often you can find great remixes and mashups. Having so many writers means that it is not uncommon for there to be 4 or more posts in a single day, huzzah!
The multiple personalities manning The Tape means that the writing never gets boring or dull, and there are plenty of series' that will keep you coming back; my personal favorite is Guilty Music Monday.
Do me a favor and give The Tape some love, and for god's sake if you like them and have a blog put them in your blogroll, I went through like 20 blogs before I found them.
Questions? Comments? Have a blog you'd like me to take a look at? Shoot me an Email.
