NPR on the Influence of Music Blogs on the Indie Music Scene

This story gives a pretty interesting overview of how the indie and music blog scenes intersect:

To Generate Buzz, Clap Your Hands on the 'Net!
All Things Considered, November 29, 2005ยท Musicians looking for a break are increasingly turning away from conventional forms of promotion and toward the more populist venue of the Internet.

Over two weeks this past June, all of those forces mobilized to support a group called Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, a five-piece rock combo based in New York and Philadelphia. It was one of scores of bands making music without the help of a record label, pressing CDs themselves and selling them at concerts and on the Internet.
