Santogold – Santogold

‘Santogold‘ is the debut album released by Santigold. It came out in 2008 and was preceded by the single ‘Creator’. She was know as Santogold at the time but changed her stage name slightly since.

Josh Ritter – The Beast In It’s Tracks

Josh Ritter’s seventh album ‘The Beast In It’s Tracks‘ was released in 2013. Anyone who listens to Josh Ritter knows what a fantastic storyteller he is. He has also written quite a lot of songs abut America but doesn’t do the personal thing too much. With ‘The Beast In It’s Tracks’ he finally goes personal. It’sContinue reading “Josh Ritter – The Beast In It’s Tracks”

Def Leppard – Hysteria

Def Leppard’s fourth album ‘Hysteria‘ is 30 years old this year. That’s older than myself. A few years ago I bought one of their greatest hits albums (can’t remember the name) because ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ was on it. That then lead on to me playing it for a friend who also loved it,Continue reading “Def Leppard – Hysteria”

Ryan Adams-1989

Now, I’m a fan of Ryan Adams. I think he’s done some great work, a mix of country, rock, and heartbreak. He has a fantastic amount of work done which is something no one can take away. He’s been in two bands which have also released material. He’s been through some shit too and comeContinue reading “Ryan Adams-1989”

I hate to say it but they’re cool as fuck, and that’s a big part of why I like them. Every record has aContinue reading “Sonic Youth-Sister”

The Weeknd- Beauty Behind The Madness

‘Beauty Behind The Madness’ is the second album from The Weeknd. I hadn’t heard of him until I was in Canada, so he kind of came out of nowhere for me. I think he was pretty well known before this release though in Canada and the US, but as we all know he blew upContinue reading “The Weeknd- Beauty Behind The Madness”

Earl Sweatshirt-Doris

Yep, I’m that white guy, the same as those in Instagram videos with people dancing around to Future’s ‘Mask Off’. I’m listening to some of Americas newest and roughest rappers in the likes of Vince Staples, A$AP Rocky and here, Earl Sweatshirt, not because I can relate to it but because it sounds so GodContinue reading “Earl Sweatshirt-Doris”

Future Island- Singles

  Future Islands are an American synth-pop band and ‘Singles’ was released in 2014. It was their fourth album and they have a new one coming out soon. The success and rise of the album was due in part to their appearance on ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ where they played a rousing single, ‘Seasons’, leadContinue reading “Future Island- Singles”
