    the coolest musicians you better be following on tumblr.

    by · March 12, 2014
    I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m not really up on my music game. Every new band or artist I learn about is because I work with the coolest people with the best insight into the music industry (I’ll even admit that before working at NYLON I was basically the Portlandia character who only talked about Pet Sounds. Sorry, everyone!). But recently I’ve pressed the “Follow” button on some musicians’ Tumblrs, and it’s really changed my situation for the better. While Instagram gives you insight into musicians’ personal world of cell phone snaps, their Twitters allow for 140 character thoughts, and their Facebook pages are great ways to find out about tour dates, no platform can really deliver like Tumblr. It has the ability to combine songs, text, images, videos, and Q&As into one feed, which makes following Grimes or Lorde way cool since you not only get to hear their music, but you also find out about what they’re loving and inspired by. (And if you follow either of these awesome ladies, you know their inspirations are far-reaching and 100-percent worth a reblog.)So in the spirit of online sharing, check out the bands I’m following in the slideshow, and tell me yours on Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr (duh!).
