For the first time in a long time, I’ve missed a couple of weeks of release roundups, so I have an awful lot to cover this week, with three weeks […]
Back into the writing saddle, then, as I wrap up the best music of the past month. The write-up of Cold Waves X from Chicago will follow in the next […]
Infest has passed in the inevitable flash, and now we’re already into September, the usual busy Autumn release schedule is looming fast. This post is a roundup of (relevant to […]
This week, I’m picking up on a recent suggestion thread that really got me thinking, as the very idea of secrets in song seems like an oxymoron. After all, if […]
On an average day, I might awaken early, waiting for my alarm to go off. I’ll wait for the kettle to boil, I’ll wait for my work laptop to boot […]
When I asked for “songs of joy”, I wasn’t necessarily meaning songs that “joy” or even “happy” in the title. What I was looking for were uplifting songs that make […]
The idea for this post actually came out some months ago, when I saw a post by a friend talking about an inspirational woman in music, and it got me […]
Another Friday, another weekly round-up. This is, as readers should know by now, a look at new music, upcoming music and events, and any other music news that might be […]
Back after a week away at Whitby, we return once again to the now-usual Friday round-up of new music, upcoming releases, events worth looking out for and other musical news […]

For a country with a population of 330,000 – and a total area of 102,000km2 (in comparison, England has a total area of 130,000km2 and a population of 54 million) […]
As always as we enter February, it feels like an eternity since I last did a Tracks of the Month post, and it was, I guess – the last one […]
So, last week I covered “Bad Sex”. This week, it is the better side. The songs that I actually see as being sexy.
Ok, so it’s my usual monthly roundup of ten songs you should hear. Or go back and listen to again if you have already.
Onto part four of my 90s album run-down. There is again a Spotify playlist accompaniment to it, which is again only missing a couple of entries.
Let’s say a recent post by a friend (“ten men I find more attractive than Johnny Depp”) has reminded me to go ahead with this week’s Tuesday Ten, a “possible” […]
Over halfway, and we’re into the Top 100.
