Beats Per Minute
My new favorite music blog is a joint that’s based in New York and L.A. called Beats Per Minute (aka “130 Beats Per Minute.”)
Their About Page says the site was “founded in late 2008 as a five-man operation, Beats Per Minute has since expanded to a staff of over 50 contributors based in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, and Germany.”
They’ve been called out by a number of name publications (including Forbes and Rolling Stone) but, more important, they know music.
Portland‘s getting a lot of love right now on their home page with a review of the new Unknown Mortal Coil album as well as a fun look at the personal music tastes of indie rockers Rare Monk.
