A wizard with a sampler and Oz as in Australia. I am talking about someone that a lot of Australia seems to be talking about, but I hate to see the rest of the world miss out. I'm talking bout Gotye, apparently pronounced Go-tee-yeah. Gotye is 25-year-old Wally De Backer from Melbourne, Australia. He plays a multitude of instruments, can sing, and also produces all of his music from the the very house he lives in. On his MySpace page he lists his … [read more]
So, this blog is already one week old! Thanks to everyone that has read the entries, and even greater thanks to those people that have left me comments, you guys really are fuelling this thing.
Today I decided I'd feature the group that have remained at the top of my last.fm charts for a long time now; The Herbaliser. Since 8th February 2005 I've, apparently, listened to The Herbaliser 654 times – so they must be pretty good, right? Right!
Ollie Teeba and … [read more]
I am of course referring to albums due out sometime within the rest of this year. I'll list the ones I am looking forward to, as this is in-fact my blog. So there! However, feel free to leave me comments with any albums that you are looking forward to, I'm a pretty open minded kinda guy, so chances are if you are looking forward to it, then I might just appreciate it too.

I think the title of this entry pretty much suggests what I'm gonna rant about, but… first off, I just want to say that from a commercial stand-point, I realise that there is a place for hip-pop and that plenty of people seem to really enjoy it. I don't want for there to be any presumption that I'm going to just rip some music to shreds and praise some other (I make no promises, what can I say? I'm passionate!) – I'll attempt to show … [read more]
I have five MySpace Music profiles to share with you today. The thing they all have in common (currently) is that they all have less than 10,000 views on their respective pages. So, we're gonna give them some more views, aren't we?!
I don't plan on going into too much detail on each profile as I am hoping you'll take the time to actually read the info on the pages yourself – I'm no copy & paste monkey! So, in no particular order, here are … [read more]
I've been regularly using the internet since about 1998, but been listening to music since 1983 (year of my birth!) – cut to present day and I'm sure most will agree that these two things are at the pinnacle of modern culture. You can discover music easily without the internet, and likewise you can explore the internet without any reference to music, but… integrated together, you are given a whole new avenue to explore, this blog itself is testament to that fact. So, how can … [read more]
This is the first of my weekly entries that will be known as "Track of the Week". Basically each Friday I will post my favourite and/or most played track of the week. Sometimes it might be an old track, other times it might be new – either way, it will just be my favourite track of the last week. Who knows, maybe every once in a while it will be a track you've never heard before and will change your life forever! Or something … [read more]
The phrase "spread like wildfire" has never been more apt. Lily Allen is a 21 year old singer/songwriter from London. She has very quickly progressed from MySpace favourite to air-wave hogger. The speed at which Lily's fame has grown makes the Arctic Monkeys' rise to fame look like a tortoise running the London marathon. But what if you live under a rock? Who is Lily Allen? Well, I'll tell you…
Lily's music has been described as ska/pop. I first discovered her about a month or … [read more]
