Song of the Day: Nemo by Nightwish

Although Tarja turned out to be a bit of a diva and was dismissed from the band as a result, Nemo, which was recorded during her reign does remain one of  Nightwish’s best songs.

I offer this to you because I find myself unable to locate a new track that I truly liked. So I reverted to one of my all time favourites. Do you know why I love this song so much? (more…)

Song of the Day: Home by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Mercury Prize Nominee Jessie Ware With Devotion

Jessie Ware is a name that has been banded about quite a bit recently, yet the comment about her that stuck with me is that she’s impossible to stick in a genre, impossible to classify. This I find good, why should everyone be pigeonholed? Why should each artist be judged as rock or pop or folk? I think someone who flits between all genres is to be cherished, they’re truly talented. They don’t stick with what they know but go out and explore.

Which is why I chose her album to review first, she intrigued me. (more…)
