Any discussion of music from a single to an album or video – all genres

Single – The Spell of Mathematics – Deftones

The mood they create in their songs is an all encompassing atmosphere which surrounds you in a bubble. Deftones goes heavy, pulls in melody and Chino Moreno’s high notes, juxtaposed with the low, gives you a distinct blend of amazing. Plus, when you delve into the lyrics, well it’s a revelation: these guys understand, they get it, they know.
The Spell of Mathematics is all that and more.

Killing Joke - Chop Chop

Single – Chop Chop – Killing Joke

Listening again to songs that you heard when you were a teen because you choose to/ bought the album yourself is special.
Killing Joke is one of those bands for me.

Picking one Killing Joke song is hard. Don’t judge me for having the gall to do so. I realise that there are other excellent choices available.

Is Chop Chop on your shortlist?

Singles – Racks and Damage – H.E.R

H.E.R’s lush voice, sweeps you up and engages you in a story that you want to hear. These singles are just two of this talented artist’ back catalogue.
Take a few minutes out of your day, to listen one or both songs and be wowed.

Tune Tuesdays or TuneDay?

There’s always a song or two drifting in & out of my head. Why? There are reasons. But that’s not important. In an attempt to share the love, I’m going to make it your problem as well as mine. Welcome – your introduction to #Tuneday or maybe #TuneTuesday

Catch Up: The Pause

When you notice you’re in a reading slump, what do you do? In my case, I navigated my way through by listening to music and other distraction tactics. Read on to find out how well that worked.

My collection of Danzig Albums

Band – Danzig

The early 1990’s was great for me, I was looking and finding new bands that felt like they were just for me irrespective of genre.

Single – Cool Nuh

I heard this song last week and thought that it had missed a trick not coming out in summer. But on reflection, the timing is cool. Big Up Frisco feat. Spragga Benz for -Cool Nuh, it’s a tune!

Single – Welcome To The Party

The lyrics for Pop Smoke ‘Welcome To The Party’ discuss drugs, violence and guns. On paper not for me. But the production changes all of that.

Album – We Are Not Your Kind

We Are Not Your Kind,:the stylistic and musical range is so wide, I’m sure there’s an entry point even for those who are not fans of metal. How can you not like one of these songs? It’s unfeasible.
