can someone hook me up with links to decent internet radio stations? that'd be awesome.

also, review sites with good current reviews? pitchfork doesnt do it for me, and this site is mostly older releases.

That's my local radio station. Go Seattle!
They have many different shows you can listen to.

The Young and the Restless (all local bands)
Gabba Gabba Hey (Punk Rock Show)
Resurection Flashback Sunday (A bunch of 80s music is played)
New Music show (I don't need to explain what this is)

Here's some live performances you can listen to.
There's also radio takeovers and interviews.

I just use last.fm because I can tailor it to my tastes, and the stream quality is high, I can skip tracks and block artists etc.. Itunes has some decent radio stations, but they don't offer the benefit of being able to skip tracks.

As for reviews I haven't really found a good one yet, http://www.allmusic.com has some good mainstream review but they're usually short and focus on the general gist of the album, no nitty gritty. Check out our very own http://www.sputnikmusic.com. The reviews are written by amateurs (us) but there are quite a few good writers there. And most rock new releases are covered, though there are no guarantees.

http://www.tinymixtapes.com for more *ehem* obscure releases. Reviews are very brief and oftentimes half-assed but it's a good resource site nonetheless. Go to http://www.markprindle.com if you want quality (not a lot of current review but meh).

The best radio station ever, as far as I'm concerned, is KEXP (http://www.kexp.org). They have great music, fantastic DJs, and archived programming to keep you busy for months. When I was interning this summer, I kept them on pretty much all day long.


















If you're looking for a review site. (http://tinyurl.com/8ovas)
Shhhh..... I'm plugging my own site. Don't tell.

KEXP is great, as is KCRW.

I've only just found this site and it's been a great success so far but soon it will want me to register.

Check out some college stations. Plenty of variety at WCSB (http://www.wcsb.org).
WFMU (http://www.wfmu.org) always has good stuff.

I use Launchcast radio

You can rate the albums, songs and artists and they play the stuff you rate highest more frequently and offer similar artists. There's the occasional commercial with the free version though.

I've found Launch's streaming quality to be unbearable, unless they've improved recently.

All their stations are amazing, particularly Indie Pop Rocks!

I've been using Musicmatch Jukebox lately. The genre catagory selection is pretty extensive. As for quality compared to others, I don't really know. I'm on 56k dial up internet, so I'm basicly limited to the low quality setting. Although it does have a CD quality option.

If your looking to pay you can also select the artists you want to listen to.

I like to whore Metacritic (www.metacritic.com) for reviews. I use it so I don't have to bother sifting through a bunch of sites if I want to read up on a specific artist. Only bad thing is that they don't cover enough rap. And they require a specific amount of reviews per album, which skips over the more obscure stuff sometimes. But on the plus, they cover other media and they've got a somewhat decent release calendar.
