Merry-Go-Round Music was founded on July 29th, 2011 by aspiring writer CJ Simonson.
At that time, it was a simple Tumblr blog that featured casual writings and musics that interested him. Mostly focused on reviews, it was for no one but himself – a place to develop ideas, understand the furthest corners of the music industry, and become a better writer.
Years later, the site still serves all those purposes. Not many people read it, not many people know it exists, but CJ uses it as an outlet to write articles comparing Miley Cyrus to Iggy Pop, and review various splintered OddFutureprojects.
