Good News!

My exams are basically dealt with. I shall be off on holiday as of next week, and will free for about three months. Of course, I’ll only be able to write during gaps in my busy social life, so in the end, I’ll only be able to write for about 99.9% of that time. I have a massive list of albums to review, and more keep getting released each week. I shall try to get all of them written, but seeing as my list extends back a few months, I’m not sure how many I can do. I also have a Slow Club review to finish, I think that will be the next post I will publish.

Last night, I manage to write about 500 words on very little. I think it probably coincides with my internet being turned off. The blog post is here.

This Week’s New Band: Pale Seas

I am just taking a quick break from my revision to write this post. I am still writing up the Slow Club gig, I am struggling a bit, but I am pleased so far. I only have about two weeks of exams left, so I should be back to full-time writing soon.

This week’s new band is called Pale Seas. They are so good! I had to take a break from important revision to write about them. I first heard them only about thirty minutes ago. I nearly didn’t press play, but clicking that button was the best decision of today. I heard them on Flying With Anna, and since then have listened to all the songs I can find (that number is still only six, but I have listened to several versions of some).  You can download their current single (released on March 8th) ‘Something or Nothing’ with its B-side ‘Amour’ for free of their Facebook page.

Their music is dreamy folk, with magical, glorious harmonics.  I am in awe a little now. The music is so beautiful; the acoustic guitars, vocals, and other little twinkly sounds just combine into something amazing. They give me that feeling inside, the one that great music gives you, almost a feeling of euphoria.
