Derek Weiler writes from Toronto - he's recently started up an MP3 blog called Bury Me Not, and it already has some fascinating songs.
Any blog that has a song by the Weather Prophets or the (recently reformed!!) Loft does the trick for me. "Up the Hill and Down the Slope" is about as good as pop music gets. Bill Prince from the Loft, of course, went on to form the Wishing Stones, featuring our very own John Niven, author of Music from Big Pink.
