Most blogged artists: slowcore legends Low release new LP
Thursday 14 April 2011
British rockers Arctic Monkeys are the most blogged artists in the music blogosphere according to The Hype Machine on April 14. Famed hip hop squad Beastie Boys drops to second place, while US rock band My Morning Jacket holds third.
Debuting in the day's top ten, US slowcore rock pioneers Low just released a new album, C'mon, the band's ninth, as well as a video featuring actor John Stamos for the single "Try to Sleep." "After almost 20 years together, their rhythm section has still never crept past a snail's pace, the music minimal to the point of being maddening, but never sounding formulaic," reviews blogger Rrcdlbl (rcrdlbl.com).
Another band new to the top ten is electro pop outfit Purity Ring, which gained some blogger momentum earlier this year with the track "Ungirthed." The band just released another single titled "Lofticries," "featuring the same shadowy vocals and synth-driven production that made 'Ungirthed' one of our most loved tracks of the year," writes blogger Live for the Funk (www.liveforthefunk.com).
