Music April ’17

One of the good things that have come from my recent months of unemployment is a sudden increase in time spent perusing parts of Spotify I haven’t seen before. I think I mentioned in a previous post how I only recently signed up for streaming services. I don’t know why it took so long, but…

On My Playlist: March 17

After a while of prioritizing podcasts, videos and reading I’ve started listening to more music again. The result is that when I was extremely sleep deprived the other day I just sat down and wrote a lot of stuff about whatever artists came to mind. This is a somewhat edited version of the mess that…

2016 Autumn/Winter Playlist Highlights

This post has been in my drafts for so long that by now this list feels a bit outdated. After some tweaking it does at least partially represent the music I’ve been listening to for the last six months, if not the stuff I listen to most right now. Maybe I’ll get around to writing…

New Music: Ed Sheeran “Sing”

As you might have heard, Ed Sheeran released his new single today. Ed Sheeran has become more widely known since his collaboration with Taylor Swift, so I’m assuming he is on a lot of people’s radar by now. I started listening to his music when I moved to London back in 2012 and I’ve really liked his music…

Songs and Soundbites

I wanted to post something today, but it’s one of those days when no matter how hard I try, whatever I write just turns out weird and/or unstructured, so instead of publishing a post about the Veronica Mars movie (which I have been planning to do for ages now), I’m just going to give you…

November Playlist

One Direction: Let’s just get it out of the way: I really enjoy One Direction, no matter how “uncool” that is when you’re a 24 year old  sometimes-music-snob (FYI, I don’t actually think it is uncool). I am not obsessed, but I did go through a phase a couple of months back that is repeating itself now that ‘Midnight Memories’ is out. Up…

Music Recommendation: Foxes

This evening I was once again spending time reading blogs, and when I was looking around at You, Me & Charlie I came across a post discussing the singer Foxes. I might have mentioned before that I am bad at discovering new music, and therefore appreciate when I can find blogs like that one to broaden my…

Music Recommendation: Gotye

Thanks to a tweet by Dianna Agron yesterday, I checked out a couple of songs by Gotye and much to my surprise I fell in love with his music. I always tell people I don’t have a particular genre of music I love more than others, but rather certain bands I prefer, such as Muse, Florence and…

Florence + the Machine: No Light, No Light

Florence and the Machine performing ‘No Light, No Light’. It’s an amazing song and Florence Welsh sings it perfectly as always. I started listening to Florence a while ago when I heard Cosmic Love, and after having listened to the album Lungs many many times I look forward to checking out her new album Ceremonials. Other songs…
