A Band For The Weekend: The Statics

the statics

Yes, I said band! I wanted to kill two birds with several stones in the form of a single blog post this weekend, so I have quite cleverly (even if I may say so myself), decided to combine the 'song for the weekend' segment with the new band 'introducing' segment. Call it crafty, lazy, whatever … Continue reading A Band For The Weekend: The Statics

alt-j

The beauty of Alt-J (well for me anyway) is that I have no idea what Joe Newman (the band's frontman) is singing. He could be spouting out streams of random babble and I'd have no idea (Please tell I'm not alone here). But surely this can't be a favourable attribute for a band to possess. … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Taro

Introducing: Analogue Wave

Analogue Wave

Let me introduce you to Analogue Wave,  a band (or electro super-duo in waiting) who have all but taken over my musical playlists ever since their compact disc bombardment of my letterbox commenced a couple of months ago. Okay it was 3 CD's that fell through my door, but that single action has all but managed … Continue reading Introducing: Analogue Wave
