One Chord To Another is a pop site (Ok, nowadays it’s maybe more folk and country site). The main focus is on Finnish pop music, but being a romantic fool who gets easily excited about anything that touches or moves him to tears, there will always be a lot of pointless talk about pop and country records in general. Most of the music in this blog will fit into genres such as guitar pop, power pop, indie pop, sunshine pop, country, alt-country, americana, folk… because that’s the kind of music that I love.
The blog has nothing to do with music critique. The blog has everything to do with loving music passionately.
If you want to know what kind of taste I have, here is a pointless list that contains some bands and artists that I love:
The Posies, Jon Auer, Ken Stringfellow, Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Gene Clark, Emitt Rhodes, Chris Bathgate, Margo Guryan, Lee Hazlewood, Teenage Fanclub, The Lemonheads, Evan Dando, Matthew Sweet, The Raspberries, Big Star, Badfinger, The Zombies, Blaze Foley, Jason Falkner, Left Banke, Stiv Bators, Brendan Benson, Ilona V, Sparklehorse, Ryan Adams, Whiskeytown, The Jayhawks, Wilco, Sloan, Paul Williams, Mark Eric, Bergen White, Roger Nichols, Curt Boettcher, Two Cow Garage, The Fox Hunt, Trembling Blue Stars, The Heavy Blinkers, The Lucksmiths, Hezekiah Jones, Small Houses, Pickering Pick, The Deep Dark Woods, Glossary, Austin Lucas, Dawes, Elliot Smith, Frontier Ruckus, Woodpigeon, James Iha, The Weakerthans, The Softies, Rose Melberg, Neil Young, The Beach Boys and The Beatles.. and a huge amount of great finnish bands.. and so much more..
That list could go on and on and I probably forgot something extremely important, because I wrote that in 5 minutes. But the point was just to give you a clue of what kind of music I love so it doesn’t really matter.
