Breaking down the elbo.ws Top 10

Every day Elbo.ws keeps track of which bands are being discussed the most and displays the results as the elbo.ws Top 10 Artists. If an artist is being blogged about enough to be in the Top 10 then they must be worthy of merit, so every Sunday I'll try to pick one song from each of the Top 10 artists and post them here for you to check out.

*If an artist remains in the Top 10 for consecutive weeks I will insert an alternate artist or song that deserves a listen, to insure that things don't get too repetitive. Ratatat and Jed and Lucia came in at #8 and #10, respectively.

elbo.ws Top 10 for August 27, 2006:




Snowden - Anti Anti (from Snowden on Myspace)




The Mountain Goats - Raid On Entebbe

Pretty cool feature but I'm not sure tjat I agree with this necessarily: "If an artist is being blogged about enough to be in the Top 10 then they must be worthy of merit" Maybe they just have good promo teams.
