Best Music Blog (That Isn’t Stereogum)
The top spot in this category went to everyone’s favorite meat-and-dairy-free New Yorker, Brooklyn Vegan, best known for his excellent live coverage, photography, and that guy “anonymous” who makes a lot of comments. Chris at Gorilla Vs. Bear has a great ear for new sounds and the blogosphere’s best collection of concert Polaroids, and you kindly rewarded him with the #2 spot. An interesting coup is AOL’s Spinner at #10 — otherwise, it was mostly one or two person operations. Blogs landing just beyond the top 10 were Tiny Mix Tapes, Daytrotter, Largeheartedboy, and altbro handbook Hipster Runoff. People certainly love La Blogotheque’s Take-Away shows, but maybe folks see it as more of a video channel than a blog, because they only made it to 22.
