When it comes to local music blogs, we're sorta partial to our own, Up On The Sun. However, if your computer won't pull up our page for some reason, or when you want to read even more indie-rock news, you should definitely check out Electric Mustache. We love the brother-in-law team — primary writer Mike Escoto and primary photographer Shawn Anderson — so much that we've hired them to contribute to our blog with the express directive that they cannot — they must not — stop doing their own blog. Electricmustache.com
has a great feel, with witty, quick-hit posts and tons of embedded music and videos. Oh, and there are rants, too, like the time Shawn (a west-sider) let a reportedly douche-y Scottsdale crowd have it with both barrels. The 'Stache tends to focus primarily on indie rock, which is nice for anyone who can't stand, say, to read even one more effing word about that talentless strumpet Miley Cyrus. Personally, we just love all the new music we've been able to hear on the site.
