PowerPop - Blogs and Websites

I think it's time to give you an overview of all the great other blogs and websites out there about PowerPop.


TooPoppy is the most important blog for news and musical discovery for me. I'm following TooPoppy for many many years now. And that's mainly because of the well written and straight to the point articles and the fine selection of artists. 

Starting from news of everything related to The Beatles, onwards to IndiePop (Nada Surf, Del Amitri, Guster) and a whole lot of PowerPop (Mike Viola, Jellyfish, Bleu).

Well, that's exactly my taste of good music! Way to go!


PopFair is THE number one source for live recordings and compilations of rare or unreleased stuff from the best PowerPop artists out there (e.g. Jim Boggia, Adam Levy, Mike Viola, David Myhr, Pugwash). 
And then there is also a damn fine year-end top 25 list every year.

Hooks and Harmony

Another favorite of mine is Hooks and Harmony - the site is filled with fascinating album and concert reviews, various interviews and plenty of news.
Another entertaining part of the site are articles about the status quo of the music industry - funny and sad at once.


Aaron Kupferberg fills the superb blog frequently with news, interviews, reviews. It's always a good place to discover some new tunes and bands!


Lojinx is not a blog, but the best IndiePop label (from London) since NotLame, I might say it's probably even better! I'd guess that at least a half of the artists I write about can be found at Lojinx!

PowerPop Overdose

PowerPop Overdose is always another good source for news and music discoveries. Good stuff!

Absolute PowerPop

Steve Ferra - the writer of Absolute PowerPop - fills the blog constantly with well-written reviews and news!

CD Baby

If you're looking for the best independent or pop music store on the web - look out for CD Baby
It's not only the shop with the widest choice of artists - CD Baby can be credited to be the shop with the most enthusiastic shipping confirmation E-Mail EVER!

An excerpt:
(...) our world-renowned packing specialist lit a local artisan candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy. We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved "Bon Voyage!" (...)

Well... and that's only a small part of the E-Mail...
