Most blogged artists: Kanye West, Chromeo, Pavement
Friday 24 September 2010
Rapper Kanye West continues to lead as most blogged artist according to The Hype Machine on September 24. Indie act Twin Sister moves into third position behind Warpaint, while veteran rock group Pavement enters the blogosphere.
For weeks, bloggers have been sharing tracks from electronic funk duo Chromeo's new album, Business Casual, officially released on September 14. "The album's catchy beats, sensual vocals, and retro synths all added up into something I couldn't deny," reviews The Needle Drop (http://www.theneedledrop.com). "At its core, the LP is a pop record, but it's well-traveled and seeks to pay homage to its forefathers: George Clinton, Huey Lewis, and the Bee Gees."
Deep into their 2010 worldwide reunion tour, indie rockers Pavement have entered the blogosphere after playing four shows in New York's Central Park this week. On September 20, the band also performed "Gold Soundz" on the American cable television show The Colbert Report on Comedy Central. No Genre Music (http://www.nogenremusic.com) blogs about one of the performances on the tour: "The band tore into [the track 'Silence Kid'] with a ferocious passion that settled any fear that the band was going to glide through their set like disinterested veterans."
