Song of the Day: Taking Me Back by The Common

Well isn’t Taking Me Back a moody little song.

Actually, I guess moody isn’t really the right word. This makes it difficult to explain. I suppose what I mean is that there’s a certain mood, a certain atmosphere created by The Common on this track….and yet atmospheric isn’t quite right either. (more…)

Song of the Day: Blown Away by Sivert Hoyem

One of the reasons I’ve chosen this song is because of Sivert Hoyem’s voice. It’s rich and deep and just absolutely amazing. It’s a hard voice to match and I’m not sure many guys can. I think the acoustics of the venue also has a part to play in it as he has this vibrato to his voice that just echoes pleasantly.

He kind of sounds a little like Nick Cave, or at least he reminds me of him. (more…)


Song of the Day: Take it Slow by Tapioca and The Flea

Well isn’t this just a catchy and addictive song.

Take it Slow by Tapioca and The Flea is a sort of unique track that sounds like it has been around for ages. When I was playing it someone said it reminded them of The Pet Shop Boys, and I disagreed because I simply don’t like them. There is an artist that this track reminds me of but I just can’t put my finger on who it is. (more…)


Song of the Day: Time by Rigbi

Rigbi is the culmination of several artists who experienced the music industry and in the end were drawn together to create this band. I was sent and email for a cover that they did of Let’s be Still by The Head and The Heart. But me being me I couldn’t resist a look at their other offerings and came across Time. (more…)


140 Character Interview with Lem and the White Fire

Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve had a 140 character interview on here! But it’s back and it’s with an awesome band. Lem and the White Fire have an excellent sound and make for an exciting listen. I was more than happy to take the opportunity to grab them for a quick interview over Twitter.

@musicment: Describe your music?

@lemwhitefire: L&TWH is described to exude originality and quirkiness. This is an organic project which hopes to deliver music to the people with honesty. (more…)


Song of the Day: Army of Tears by Cathy Davey

I’ve had enough, these salty drops
I’ve caught a thousand of them, filled a hundred cups
And bit by bit they grew and grew
So I begin to turn them into something new

What amazing imagery in the first few lines of the song! A small taster of the rest of the track, they’re simple words for a not so simple story. Delivered with a venom that adds so much character to the song, that really puts you in the footsteps of the narrator. (more…)


Song of the Day: Wires by Athlete

It’s a slow but steady song and probably the best one that Athlete have ever created. Wires is an emotional track and it builds up to a crescendo towards the end before shedding all the layers of instruments before picking them up again, I love the way this is done, it makes it seem like the music is wavering as if it has been burdened by emotion.
