Okay, I tried to prevent myself from doing this because I’ve always read that a blog should have a particular “topic”, but I’ve already created another one to do with travel and photography. I didn’t want to make yet another one for all my musical ramblings. I think this blog’s “topic” is going to be creative culture – music/films/books all fall under that category right?
Oh well, it’s my blog.
Anyway… tracks that have been rocking my world this week:
1) Recover – CHVRCHES
2) I Wanna Be A Warhol – Alkaline Trio
3) Best of Friends – Palma Violets
4) Let’s Dance To Joy Division – The Wombats
5) Wessex Boy – Frank Turner
6) On The Ave – Pinhead Gunpowder
7) Surrender The Night – My Chemical Romance
8) The Rock Show – Halestorm
9) Norgaard – The Vaccines
10) Skinny Love – Bon Iver
Well that’s a pretty diverse mix isn’t it? Just in case you wanted to know, I host a radio show at my university radio station (Bailrigg FM). It’s a rock show, but I enjoy lots of other interesting music as well. Track 1 is an electronic kinda track if anyone’s into that stuff, Track 2 is the lead single off Alkaline Trio’s new album My Shame Is True, 3 is a brilliant track by this band I’m really growing to like – they kinda sound like The Libertines crossed with old school punk ideas. 4 + 9 are just a bit of indie pop if anyone’s feeling that, upbeat and lovely chunky nuggets of poppy goodness. Track 5 is by one of my favourite artists, love this guy – check him out if you haven’t done already. Track 6 is a bit more punk, as is track 7 which I’m feeling is pretty apt at the moment. Track 8 is just a lovely solid rock track and I can’t wait to hear what these guys do next, and Track 10 is there just because I like it. By the way, how do you pronounce the name? Is it Bon Eeever? Or Bon I-ver… I tend to go with the former; French pronunciation for the win! Obviously some of these tracks are old, some are new, but all of them are pretty damn awesome – what do you think?
