50before50: #49 buy new music on average of once per month (that makes 24) (1-3/24)

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:

December
rolling blackouts: talk tight (physical EP) – described as soft punk / tough pop (say what?), bit garage, lo fi, totally oz.

January
goon sax: boyfriend (digital single) – totally adorable wee hipsters, gorgeous song.

February
no zu: afterlife (digital album)
future running music, much in the style of !!!

  1. This is a great goal. So many people of our age get caught up in the music of their youth and never move on. I LOVE hearing new music.

      Wow, that is absolutely so spot on!

      It is so easy to get in a rut (we were a bit stuck on late 2000s music for a while there).

      Every time I see a band from my yoof touring, no matter how cool they were, I cringe a little – looking at you Jesus and Mary Chain.
