It's not all about music anymore...



Trampled By Turtles. Twice.

Travelling back from Waterford, Ireland this Sunday afternoon I was sitting behind a family of 7 – five of whom were children under the age of 10 (including 2 under 5s). Trampled By Turtles provided a much-needed, noise-cancelling soundtrack to… 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 →

Chelsea Wolfe – The Way We Used To

Confession time – I discovered Chelsea Wolfe through Ricall. She’s one of their Ones to Watch for 2013 and actually my favourite of the lot. Musically, she reminds me of one of my favourite artists and most memorable live artists… Continue Reading →

This is from Wye Oak’s Mar 2011 album, Civilian. Was a little confused just now by the fact that City Slang‘s site says May 4th rather than March 4th and was wondering how we7 managed to get themselves a 2-month… Continue Reading →

Dark Dark Dark – Daydreaming

Sitting at home with flu-type symptoms and a sore throat, I was catching up on Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 (thank you Sky Player!) – and heard this song:

Dark Dark Dark – Daydreaming

Lia Ices – Grown Unknown

I’m in a vocal zone right now…. James Vincent McMorrow, James Blake, one coming up (for a totally different reason)  – the main reason I keep going back to their music is to hear the voice… Lia Ices is another… Continue Reading →
