Biology of the Blog

DJ Jess

Welcome to Biology of the Blog! This week we catch up with Sean Michaels, founder of the Canadian based music blog Said The Gramophone. Sean’s blog features fantastic new and old music from around the globe, but the real draw to his site is his prose that accompanies the MP3’s. Each one is crafted to capture the emotive effects of listening to the song, rather than the technicalities of it, offering a truly unique interpretation of sound. Tune in for more from Sean!
