BUZZED: During the warm summer months…

posted on May.22, 2013

Music doesn’t stop, so why should I?

In case you didn’t know (and let’s be honest, you probably didn’t), Buzzed is a weekly radio show on WTSR that I started this past semester. My semi-official motto is to showcase “the alternative to the alternative.” There’s a lot of bullshit in the ever-expanding ~indie blogosphere~ and it was my goal to sift through that and highlight the best of the rest.  Though summer has started and I’m no longer able to do the radio show weekly, I didn’t want to/couldn’t stop posting about music. So I figured posting intermittently about the new music I’ve been wandering across would satisfy my need to incessantly bug people about up-and-coming artists.

No one will probably read this and I’m okay with that. The blogosphere is filled with so many voices, so why should one more matter? But I don’t mind hearing myself talk so I figured I would push on ahead.

Stay on the look out here and on my newly created Tumblr for new music that’s being buzzed about!
