Leor Galil, a blogger/music journalist who’s of the vein of writer that I totally love and respect (I like to think of it as the post-hardcore/post-PUNK PLANET style of journalism), has a new project going called Cheapo Bin.
I used to read Leor’s columns at Truth/Slant a lot, as well as his blog Perfect Lines, so when this popped up on Tumblr, I was excited. It’s basically spotlights on random winners that Leor’s found in bargain CD bins, a hunt that I used to do A LOT back when I had more disposable income and space wasn’t too much of an issue for me. It’s a really cool little thing that definitely strikes a personal chord with me, being part of that CD generation.
You should definitely check it out, even if you’re not on Tumblr. If you’ve ever just gone to blow $10 on CD’s at the record store one lazy weekend and felt like listening to Blackstreet or The Twilight Sad, Marcy’s Playground or Nine Days, then this is something you’ll definitely appreciate.
