One of my goals this year was to buy new music. Back in the day, we were always buying albums and seeing bands. I have no idea how you would describe my musical preferences – painfully snobbish, allergic to mainstream & tragically hip?
Now I’m an old lady, I’m regularly exposed to great new stuff via 2ser and fbi, but rarely do I pull the trigger on purchase. I like to show my support in a tangible way and I’m way too old to be going to shows!
I started making the occasional purchase in a desultory midway through last year, but I was keen to make this a regular thing.
I made a token effort for December (present for Don) and January (a single), but from February I’m starting to tackle this in earnest.
Here’s what we have so far:
rolling blackouts: talk tight (physical EP) – described as soft punk / tough pop (say what?), bit garage, lo fi, totally oz.
goon sax: boyfriend (digital single) – totally adorable wee hipsters, gorgeous song.
no zu: afterlife (digital album)
future running music, much in the style of !!!
