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.

The band keeps exploring the back roads next to the power pop highway, with busy drums, tons of of echo and reverb, multi-layered call-and-response vocals and the swirling string parts.
Her voice can be soothing, but make no mistake: there is a toughness in there as well. Also: she does not shun from throwing in a few harsh dissonants in Like You Say to yank listeners out of their comfortable slumber.
The six movements flow as a continuous piece that should be listened to as whole as Molvær adds accents and colour on top of the orchestra's sometimes almost abstract music.
The album is a sonic adventure, on which they perused their instruments as machetes to cut through the dense yet familiar territories marked jazz, rock or electronic to find new pastures to roam.
If there is a fountain of youth, these guys have found it. Brace yourself for an invigorating half an hour of songs about wanting to be loved, sparkling lemonade, and having a ball in general.
