Where to get music news?

Wondering where (on the intertoobs) you's are getting your music news.

I miss rock and roll. Unfortunately, when it comes to music news I have to wade through a flood of twee and other shallow genres to find the nuggets of info that pertain to what I would call "real rock n roll" music. That's why I hate pitchfork... too much of too much.

I don't care what Kanye did last friday night. I don't give a rats arse about Zoe Dechanel's latest single. Or whatever the next vapid band is from new york that uses a tape track for a rhythm section.

I remember when rock was so big I ignored most of it and only cared about the "alternative."

Where to go for Rock news? Where do you, the last of the true believers, go?

Well it USED to be here!

Now I've given up music news.

Ditto. But I empathize, Sugarcubes. I miss GloNo and have found no worthy substitute yet.

Not to intentionally lead you guys away, but http://www.twentyfourbit.com/ covers a lot of stuff I'm interested in. Not a ton of editorial, but they do a good job of filtering the music news to the good stuff.

Same here. I go with friends' recommendations as usual, but as for news, I occasionally look at Exclaim. One of my former authors is an editor there, too. I also listen to
BBC 6.
