Greg has written 1331 posts for The New Classics

New Classics has moved once again. I decided to bring the blog to Tumblr for several reasons, but the two most important are aesthetics, and time management. It’s simplified now, so you’re just getting the music but I’ll sporadically chime in with a review or article for some written content. Also, plan on receiving weekly mixtapes of the week’s best tracks, every Friday, an artist database, genre filters, and a few other fun things I’m cooking up. Here goes:
