  1. The Snark is one of the few places I can get into music by actually hearing it!

    Still, most of the time, I have to rely on written articles and reviews to steer me towards new things (and older things I haven't heard yet).

    The latest documented (cuz I'm documenting it here) case of the flaw of this system is hearing this Lykke Li, whose reviews I've read made it seem not that great (even though some of the reviews were raves), so I never checked it out. But "I Follow Rivers" is great, and will lead me towards hearing more.

    Thanks, again, for the public service, Snark!

  2. ....and great to be followed up by Algernon Blackwood Sabbath, whose "Anubis" touches on the basis for Nugent's "Stranglehold", but takes it to a much better place.
