It is nearly time to bid 2006 a fond farewell. 2006 has marked my second full year in Australia, and somehow I’ve still maintained my English accent! I do believe that writing this blog has made me even more attentive towards a subject I was already so passionate about, but either way it does seem that 2006 has been a fantastic year for music. I’ll be writing my “best of 2006″ style blog post very shortly, so look out for that.

Jones is back! That’s Norah Jones with her third album Not Too Late. It’s coming out on Blue Note on 29th January 2007 and I’ve been lucky enough to hear a few snippets… it’s sounding good.

This year has seen some epic English releases, I’m talking; Bonobo, Loka, The Broken Keys (Nostalgia 77 and Natural Self), TM Juke and also… Dr Rubberfunk, with his new album My Life At 33. The Doctor (or Simon Ward as family and close friends probably know him) ignited the embers within our woofers in 2003 with his debut electro/funk/chill crossover album The First Cut. This album proved to be a priceless twelve track excursion into the wonderful realms of raw funk and carefully … [read more]
