Despite not being a full time blogging experience, I’ll keep blogging my favourite tunes on my Tumblr, which I now changed into what you can see from the pic.
Head there if you are craving for new music peeps.
Share the music, spread the love.
Dear blogosphere and beloved readers, for once I’ll try to be quick.
I am going through a really exciting and yet hectic period of my life: Three jobs, plus a lot of collaborations all over the Net, and an “almost” social life to work on (and a boyfriend, a really important aspect, not to be forgotten). I need a break. I need some time to disconnect from the laptop everyday, and cook/run/read/roll.
I need to recharge my batteries to come back stronger than ever. The problem is, I love this blog so much than posting it just for the sake of it sounds just wrong. I started it as something I loved to do, not something I was forced to fulfil because of a schedule/deadline. I want it to be spontaneous and natural, but right now the only thing I want to do when I come back home is prepare some soup and sleep (possibly not on the soup bowl).
The DIY blog will be back soon I promise, in the meanwhile I’ll use the email@example.com email for any band who’d like to be featured in some of the publications I write for. I will use my old Tumblr to share the music I love, but in a sort of quick “Taste the Music” way. And yes, I’ll still do a lot of mixtapes.
You have been fantastic…and so was I (Christopher Eccleston quotes always work)
Remember to share the music, and spread the love.
See you soon,
Show me your artwork, and I’ll tell you which is your music genre. This might be the most indie-snobbish statement I’ve ever written, although being true. Continue reading
If had to think of a real guilty pleasure of mine, probably the choice would be Sarah Mclachlan. As a massive fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sarah carried me through the most controversial moments of the series, with her extremely cheesy tracks that would kick off at the right time, every time. Somebody dies, and Sarah kicks in. Somebody leaves, and here we go again. Continue reading
I must warn you: the following review has an high fangirl level, which in this case was a pretty damn good thing, as Algernon Doll and his sophomore ‘Citalo-Pop’ did fulfill my expectations. Already famous for his unique blend of lo-fi alt-folk and hardcore, Ewan Grant released the debut ‘Camomile’ in 2012, and soon his Algernon Doll awoke the attention of both the audience and the blogosphere.
The debut ‘Camomile’ was such an emotional and tormented journey, that probably emulating it would have been an insult to its dark fragility. Indeed, ‘Citalo-Pop’ moves forward, and proves a sensible maturation of Algernon Doll as an artists, even if it draws more into Ewan’s punk and hardcore background than the debut. Back to the origins almost to express a sense of liberation and rebellion from the restless interior struggle of ‘Camomile’. Continue reading
