It's not all about music anymore...



Jay-Z – D.O.A. (Death of Auto-tune)

Surely this man needs no introduction whatsoever – aside from saying I cannot believe it’s taken me this long to dedicate a post to him. A modern-day legend in the hip-hop/rap space and co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, his tunes… Continue Reading →

White Rabbits – Percussion Gun

It’s been a long while since I listened to an album and it literally gave me chills from start to finish. It happened this week when It’s Frightening found its way onto our office stereo. It isn’t particularly atmospheric, or… Continue Reading →

Voice of the Seven Woods

If you got to this page through my twitter feed (@nishajl), you may have seen me raving about Voice of the Seven Woods‘ self-titled release this morning. Buying this album was long overdue – Rick Tomlinson at Cafe OTO was… Continue Reading →

Our Lady Peace – Superman’s Dead

This band have been around for a LONG time. First I heard of them was, I think, on the soundtrack for teen slasher flick thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer, which featured Clumsy. Also, randomly, saw them supporting… Continue Reading →

D’Angelo – Cruisin’

This has to be one of the smoothest tracks ever written. I’d even go as far as to put it on  a 1990s par with the likes of Let’s Get It On…or Sexual Healing (both Marvin Gaye). Featured on D’Angelo’s… Continue Reading →

Hidden Tracks

I was thinking about hidden tracks on the tube the other day – one came up on my iPhone during the course of a daydream that prevented me from noticing that there was a pause in the soundtrack to my… Continue Reading →
