I have always tried to stay current in my musical wanderings. Sure I still love my roots – the stuff I grew up on, but I do make an attempt to discover new music, no matter what the genre. However, It is really difficult these days, or easy may be a better way to go – because with the Internet we have instant access to almost any band in the world. It can be, and often is overwhelming.
The genesis of 50thirdand3rd.com began at the music-streaming site BlipFM. A number of us found each other on Blip through an appreciation of music and many of us kept in touch after BlipFM ran its course. Heck, we even call each other friends now. Instead of an anonymous Internet presence, we have shared other parts of our lives with each other – some of us have even met in person.
I discovered so much new and old music on Blip and obviously made several great connections to some fantastic people. Yet it all comes back to music. We wanted 50thirdand3rd.com to continue what we started at BlipFM. In the spirit of this I thought I throw down some music that I would be blipping on BlipFM right now, just few things I’ve been listening to over the last little while.
Meg Myers – Go
Solids – Traces
Temples – Shelter Song
