It's not all about music anymore...



Belle Mare – Charade

I love it when a song makes my spine tingle: Belle Mare – “Charade” Perhaps it was the unexpected discovery, perhaps it was the antidote to the hustle of the office, or perhaps it was the echo in the stripped… Continue Reading →

BANKS – This Is What It Feels Like

I must be the only music blogger in the music blogging blogosphere to not have posted anything about BANKS yet. So here it is: I have been known to get obsessed with a song and play it a few times… Continue Reading →

Annie Eve – Body Weight

Playing catch-up here a little, so there’s going to be a flurry of activity while I do it. If you don’t experience a sharp intake of breath when the vocal truly kicks in at about 45s, you may well not… Continue Reading →

ETML – Bind Me

When I found out last week that ETML is 18, my “is that a new Disclosure track?” reaction on first listen felt somewhat vindicated. ETML is a similarly talented dance music producer, writer and singer born in the 1990s – and the comparisons… Continue Reading →
