Chris and Arianna from the much-loved Indiepages have decided to bring their website to an end after 9 years. I’ve spent countless hours over the years poring through reviews, sampling the IP Demo of The Week submissions and culling vast amounts of knowledge from the message boards. The few conversations I’ve managed to have with Chris led me to believe there are few people genuinely in love with music as much as he is. The front page cites personal matters as the main thrust behind the hiatus. Hopefully the pop community has not lost one of its most respected spokespersons for the long haul. We thank you for everything you’ve given us and good luck with future endeavors!
As we mourn the loss of one haunt, we gain the presence of another promising music blog in the form of Weekly Tape Deck. I can’t remember how I found this site but I’m kinda glad I did. I sampled a few of their weekly mixes and discovered great sounds from some names I’ve never heard before. Some of these sounds you will most assuredly hear on BTID’s upcoming August mix (shaping up to be a 2-discer, folks!).
