An introduction to Ear Buds, the new CL music page

Posted by Leilani Polk on Mon, Jan 6, 2014 at 6:00 AM

Creative Loafing is ushering in a whole new era of online news and how we deliver it to you with the launch of five blogs, each with its own specific focus — food (Potlikker), arts and entertainment (Art Breaker), politics (Political Animal), sex and love (Bed Post), and music (Ear Buds — where you're currently parked). Loaf Life, which will debut shortly, will be home to everything in between.

I'm Leilani, your Ear Buds host and friendly local music editor; for those who don't know me, you can read stuff I've written over the past several years right here. For those already familiar with my work, thanks for coming back, and I'd like to welcome you to CL's music-only blog, where you can find news and views, reviews (of concerts and albums, the odd book and perhaps the occasional music DVD), ongoing columns both old (like site staple New Music Tuesday and the ever-popular Well-Played List) and new (Infinite Skillz will be introducing an ABCs of hip hop series), the odd out-of-town pieces, festival wrap-ups, lots of live concert photography (some with reviews, some standing on their own), videos, MP3 downloads, stories and interviews with nationally touring artists along with coverage of our amazing local scene... In sum, if it's music related, we just might have something to say about it.

All the writers you remember remain intact, and you'll be seeing their names here a whole lot more often, as we'll be posting fresh content several times a day, on a daily basis. So bookmark this page, share it with your friends (do they know about the launch of Ear Buds?), and keep coming back. We'll keep putting up stuff you'll want to look at, I promise...
