Some artists write albums that are a tough listen. Some are so truthful they hurt when you listen. They hit hard. You want to turn off but you can't. They reach deep inside your soul. Pulling at feelings you didn't know you had or were struggling to control. When I think of these artists and … Continue reading Introducing – Milo Gore – Tougher then the rest

Its fun of course and ultimately rewarding, but what I like is when a track jumps out at you, … Continue reading New Artist/New Music – Teenage Waitress
I don't really like genre labels, its a pigeonhole that says you can only listen to this if you like that form of music - its a bit elitist at times as well, but then taking it to the extreme we wouldn't be able to call it Rock or Rap or Indie I spose. But … Continue reading New Band/New Music – Polyhymns – Hybrid Sunday E.P.

I'm no good at Science - I failed it miserably at school - I was more into Science Fiction dreaming off into space about Light-sabres and aliens from another world. So what is a Macroscope? Is it some form of microscope that helps you see vast regions of space and brings them into vision? Maybe, … Continue reading New Band/New Music – Macroscope
Another new band on the horizon - I've always been a sucker for that New York Cool, the Punk Sound, CBGB's, Old Skool Hip Hop, The Beasties I could go on.

At times its been … Continue reading The Artists and The Music – My First Blogging Month
