It's not all about music anymore...



Hey Rosetta! – Yer Spring

I wanted to post something today that fits the sunshine. I have a whole long list of songs/bands in my ‘to blog’ to-do list but this is something I’ve only just found recently – it’s a song by Canadian band… Continue Reading →

Deerhoof – Qui Dorm, Només Somia

It starts with a Dirty Projectors “Stillness Is The Move”-style riff and then drops into a determined and measured movement – alternating between harmless innocence and a bit menacing so you’re not quite sure where it’ll go next. Deerhoof –… Continue Reading →

Grant Lee Buffalo – In My Room

This probably isn’t the first song that comes to mind for most people when they think of rain. There isn’t an obvious lyrical reference to rain, no rain sound effects, it doesn’t even mention water (unless you count crying)… but… Continue Reading →
