This is not a typically active music blog. It’s a place for me to store my thoughts about the music I listen to.
I’ll write mostly about things I like – songs or albums I’ve been digging on, an underappreciated something-or-other, a reflection piece for a recently passed legend. If I see a live show, there’s a decent chance I’ll review it. I grew up on new wave and post-punk music, but often I’ll tackle something from before my time: ’60s rock, pop and soul never ceases to amaze, and the Great American Songbook is the zenith of craft-on-demand.
Also: I buy a lot of new music and feel an obligation to share my findings. Mostly that’s because I get my record-buying tips through someone else’s labour, and I’m just returning the favour. The reviews aren’t meant to be comprehensive: I figure you’ve already read about a record somewhere else and I’m just sharing my impressions. I’ll make no attempt to be current; it may take me months to get around to playing something.
Hope your visit’s pleasantly diverting.
