I Write About Music
Hi, I run two sites about music. And they're both great. Get in touch. I might even bother to reply.
I am passionate about music. I am dead serious about music. I listen to music. I watch music. I read about music. I talk about music. I buy music. So it makes sense that I write about music.
Styles covered: anything with a pulse, so: Americana, folk, rock, heavy metal, dance, funk, jazz, country, punk, bluegrass, rockabilly, post-punk, new wave, blues, noise, hard rock, surf, shoegaze, electronica, indie, avant-garde, pop, jam bands, (neo)-classical, Krautrock, power pop, experimental, post-rock, dream pop, minimal, industrial, vaudeville, singer-songwriters... The ability to play the music in a live setting is considered to be a big plus.
No reggae or modern day R&B, no fucking Auto-Tune. Tried it, hated it.
Note: my address for sending me stuff can not be found here. It will be supplied to you after I have contacted you. I like some privacy, old fashioned I know.

Good time music that does not pass over the bad things in life. Recorded in fits and starts - they started just before the pandemic hit - the band has succeeded to make an album that sounds like it was recorded in the round during a handful of inspired sessions.
A crash course for those who want to catch up. By going for a more laid back mood, the words come to the fore even more, now that they are wrapped in jazz, flamengo and folk. It is the gateway drug to his discography and open minded listeners are in for a hell of a trip.
Multi-instrumentalist Hector and drummer Brown are sonic explorers, providing the soundtrack for embarking on adventurous journeys from the comfort of your own home. Their ability to transport the listener is top-shelf.
With its plethora of chopped riffs and flawlessly exexcuted challenging time signatures, the band is ready to go out on the road again and get the well-deserved respect form both musos and metal heads for bringing art to the heavy rock scene.
An outcry that should be played loud. "Never forget" might be a cliché now, but the pain of loss never goes away. With Blackmore as a powerful spokesperson, the stories will be told again and again, even to those who don't want to hear them.
