Yesterday's Papers

In case you missed it in Sunday's paper, our own Chris Richards had a very nice read about the half-life that bands experience in the accelerated world of the blogosphere. It focused on Nathan Williams of lo-fi rockers Wavves, who Richards caught up with prior to his show there two weeks ago.

So is the blogosphere too disposable? Does it foster rivalry and conflict? Or do bands ultimately receive the fate they deserve?

Bands receive the fate they deserve. But how about running some guest pieces here on neo-soul, rap, reggae, country, metal, afropop, and more instead of just musing about insider details in the indie-rock world.
