The Wired nation knows all about tumblelogs, text-lite microblogs that include art, audio, video and not much more. But indie artists are seizing upon them as vehicles for publicizing their works-in-progress. Earnest singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur has joined the tumblelog ranks with Bag is Hot, his ongoing musical and photographic journal. It’s as interesting as a CD, without the material waste.
Tumblr is catching on in a special way with creative artists and their fans. Joseph Arthur was discovered by Peter Gabriel and I’m digging his tumblelog.
