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.

Dreamy songs about walking through the hills and appreciating the wonders of nature, getting away from a world wherein consumerism reigns supreme. A1 tapestry of sounds that show their colours in a relaxed, yet captivating way.
The slick '70s West Coast sound meets the slightly tougher UK variant that came to the fore in the early '80s, just before New Wave took over as the dominant popular genre.
The four tracks are miniatures that sound longer than they actually are. Wijeratne is highly economical and always finds the middle ground between roaming free and keeping it tight.
Five songs for people who are not likely to throw out a dance move, but can appreciate a tugging backbeat and swinging bass. They sing about pills, alcohol and other means to shut out the outside world.
Songwriter Eric Krewson wondered if he could use a couple of short stories and poems had written as the core for the new songs. It was a challenging task to transfer them to music.
