The Tripwire Blog Chart | Week Of May 15

We're just putting the finishing touches on our "Charts" page (it will be ready next week), but in the meantime, we figured we'd whet everyone's appetite for hot new music with our first ever Tripwire Blog Chart. Each week, our panel of music bloggers will give us their picks on the new hot shit in their world and we will turn their collective music knowledge into a chart. Why blogs you ask? Why are these guys so special? Well, because these music bloggers are WAY ahead of the curve when it comes to discovering new music and well, that's what it's all about, isn't it.

Once we get things rolling, there will be a lot more features, but for now, we're just giving you links to each bands' website. Scroll all the way down to have a look at which blogs reported to this week's chart. That number will surely grow in the weeks to come, so stay tuned!
