Songs of the Month, Summer Special, 02~09~2017

Hey all!

It has been a mad summer. I moved city, went on holiday to the US and Canada, and accepted to start school again. Time has been at a premium. With that in mind, let me introduce the summer special Songs of the Month covering June, July and August.

It has been hard to keep up with all the new music. Favourites have returned (St Vincent, Benjamin Clementine, Kodie Shane, Daughter). Old masters are back (Flaming Lips, LCD Soundsytem, Mogwai, QOTSA). Along with heaps of new crushes (Diet Cig, Priests, James Heather, Girl Ray).

Songs of the Month, 22~04~2017


It is Spring! Yay!

It is almost May, which means a Songs of the Month for April is surely right around the corner. Until that arrives, enjoy the songs I listened to and adored in March.

King Kendrick, Little Dragon and Gorillaz all returned with new cuts. Check out new grime sensation Ms Banks, and other UK based artists: the infectiously listenable Raleigh Ritchie (aka Grey Worm from Games of Thrones!), Cosmo Pyke and Jealous of the Birds. Special mention to Jidenna the Chief bringing the J.O.Y.

Songs of the [Period to be determined], 10~02~17


I have given up naming this songs of the week/month/year/decade. Whatever period of time I use I will spectacularly miss, so it feels better for all of us if I take the pressure off and post at a period to be determined.

The song this week are a combination of favourites from the end of 2016 as well as what has caught my attention so far this year.
