Following the death of Ian Curtis, the remaining members of Joy Division decided to embark on an entirely new project, although it would take some time for the group to find its own voice. Formed in 1980, New Order augmented the trio of Sumner (guitar, vocals), Hook (bass), and Morris with keyboardist Gillian Gilbert (Morris’ then-girlfriend and now-wife). The band went on to have a fairly prolific career, although the stream of releases slowed significantly by the mid- 1990s, partially […]
Happy Shrove Tuesday / Mardi Gras to you all! I am not a New Orleans native, but like millions of others, I’ve fallen in love with the allure of the Crescent City’s rich history and culture. I’ve never been to Mardi Gras, but from what I gather it’s much more of a tourist affair than a local one (at least in the French Quarter). Even so, Mardi Gras gives us an opportunity to openly and proudly celebrate one of America’s […]
Congrats folks – we’ve collectively made it through another week! As you decompress and recharge, take a listen to what the Popblerd staff have been digging this week. This edition of The Carlton Shuffle is a little more rock heavy than usual, though I’m not complaining. No, instead I’ll complain about the fact that there are no Black Sabbath records on Spotify. Alas! What have you been grooving to this week? Let us know in the comments!
Here it is folks – this week’s serving of what’s been moving the molecules around in the Blerdosphere. Although there’s not a strict theme this week, many selections reflect current events – I’m sure you’ll catch the pattern soon enough. What have you been listening to this week?
Here we are – the first week of 2013 behind us! And we’re back to business as usual over here at Popblerd. So no fancy themes this week, just the Popblerd staff picks of what’s been swimmin’ in our earholes this week. Enjoy!
Hello again! For this week’s Carlton Shuffle, we decided to put together a playlist featuring some of our favorites from 2012.

We’re tickled that you’re here, and look forward to providing you with more music and […]
Ho ho ho, loyal readers! For this week’s Carlton Shuffle, we decided to get into the spirit by compiling a holiday-themed playlist. And true to form, there are very few ‘obvious’ cuts on here, so don’t pass this one over just because you’ve been spending too much time at the mall. It’s a solid hour’s worth of yuletide tunes perfect for giftwrapping, cookie baking, nog drinking, misteltoeing, etc. Enjoy, and happy holidays to all!
It’s with great sadness that we at Popblerd announce that, as foretold by the Mayan, Roland Emmerich, John Cusack, and at least one episode of the Montell Williams Show, the world will be ending tomorrow. We hope you didn’t make big plans this weekend! While we don’t know what timezone the ancient Mayans used in their predictions, we’re going to assume it’s Eastern Standard, also known as God’s timezone. That gives you a little less than a day to get ready. […]
