News and A Weekly Song No.1
My New Year’s resolution is to blog more. I have a website; I want you to visit. There’s lots happening for me this year and I have some exciting projects to announce. This blog is where you’ll find these and other items of news. Without further ado, here’s the first fun thing...
A Weekly Song
In which I write about or draw something inspired by a track I like. It might not actually be a song, it might be an instrumental, a track from a film score, a remix or an ambient soundscape, but you can’t really use that as a title... You get the idea. Essentially, it’s an endorsement, and if you don’t know the piece of music being discussed, perhaps it’ll work as a suggestion as to why you should go and check it out (or indeed, that artist’s whole oeuvre). The choices will inevitably be a bit random as my tastes veer all over the place, and it’ll depend on what’s caught my ear that week. I listen to a lot of music.
There’s just one rule: I can’t repeat myself. That is, I’m limiting myself to one song or track per artist, so I can’t choose, say, David Bowie twice — which means you’ll get me going on about him only once (and that’s next week, to chime with his birthday).
This way I’ll cover maximum ground in a year. That’s the other thing - yeah, I’m going to try and keep this up for a year. By the end of it, you’ll have a fair idea of how catholic my tastes are and hopefully I’ll have pointed you at something interesting that your ears and emotions will thank you for. That’ll be a 52-track strong, eclectic playlist from moi. I won’t make the claim that the track I choose of any individual artist is representative of them, just that it seemed like an appropriate choice for whatever my current mood is.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s this week’s weekly song...
