What are some blogs/posts/videos that deconstruct the production of specific songs?

I love listening to and creating music, but I don't have a great deconstructive ear. I'll often hear a cool part of a song and wonder, "is that a guitar or a synth sound or a sample or huh? how did they do that?" Does anyone know of any resources online that take a song apart and examine how it was made? I'm less interested here in structural/songwriting aspects than in sound-creating aspects. I'm a technical idiot and anything that lays things out in kindergartener terms is great. Contemporary music preferred. Videos, articles, anything is all good. Thanks!
