#Throwback 17/12/2020

Everything is so throw away nowadays and has to be new and shiny. Yes, that’s fine but don’t be afraid to listen to something a little older than a year released.

This weeks’ throwback releases are –

I Don’t Do Lists but…pt3

By now, I think you may have a good idea of my Christmas box for those of you who land here and browse. Hopefully, you will leave and give a few things a listen and what’s more, actually buy something as a gift to yourself and importantly, to keep some musicians heads above the water, so to speak. Every little counts : )

Here is the next instalment of #released2020 and as usual, there is no ranking, no preferences, no order.

Happy Listening.

I Don’t Do Lists but…pt 2

Is it only the 14th December? There will be a few of these by the sounds of it.

This is the next collection of 20 releases, and it only covers the days December 8th to 12th twitter posts and I’ve barely scraped the surface of #released2020. It’s been a horrendous year for many but the releases have been eclectic, at times challenging and luckily, numerous.

In case you missed my explanation – Every year on social media and elsewhere, the big sites publish their end of year best of lists and this has always made me feel uncomfortable. On many, they are made up of the big names and labels, not very diverse and often narrow in scope. I also have a thing about the subjectivism of lists and rank. What one person says is great, another can’t see the fuss, often resulting in animosity and division…..Isn’t there enough in the world?

I decided a couple of years ago to try and cover as many of the new releases as possible, given my personal constraints, and have posted them under the moniker of I don’t do lists but this was released….This year I just used the #released2020 on twitter.

As usual, no order, no preferences, no rank, not exhaustive,….It’s easy…

Reblog – Xyla ~ Ways — a closer listen

Can’t better the review….Thanks ACL for pointing me in the right direction again : )

Electronic music is cold and soulless. You’ve heard this truism from an acquaintance. They are wearing a Pink Floyd shirt. They refuse to believe that knobs and buttons have the same emotional capacities as strummed guitars. Point them to this debut album from San Francisco’s Xyla. This gorgeous record serves a kind of sonic affogato. […]

#Throwback 4/12/2020

I have always been reluctant to use hashtags, not sure why but after 8 years I think maybe I should join the modern age : D

I have begun to do the #throwback on twitter , an album on Tuesdays and one on Thursdays, no order or prefences, it just has to be released before this year but it is a good way to get more music that might have been missed, a little spotlight. I’m trying to post contrasting releases, so this week is a collection of noise artists and idm –
