Swoon has a new look (courtesy of Mr. Elastic Heart) and a new focus: “Our focus with Swoon will be less on band/news of the week’ posts, trying to keep up with the hype of whatever is new and worth listening to, and instead focusing on the albums (and films now), past and present, that we truly love and go into more essay-like depth on those things.”

Sounds good to me; I’d like to see more so-called “music blogs” take this approach (including Opus).
