Add some music to your day
Day 5: music. I didn't think I was too bad with music, having my finger maybe not on the pulse but a pulse at least. Last year I enjoyed lots of new music and lots of old music as well. I'm trying to thing of what was new: King Creosote, King Biscuit Time (two bands from Fife with King in their name - what are the chances?), Maximo Park, and one Sufjan Stephens song which left me wanting more. The most different band I heard was The North Sea Radio Orchestra who have an amazingly distinct sound, like a sort of Broadcast meets University Challenge. Also found today these lovely people - Hamilton Yarns from Brighton who sound like Ivor Cutler crossed with Oliver Postgate. Sweet. I still end up listening to the same old stuff though and need a bit of variety. One new blog Crying All The Way To The Chip Shop looks like it's full of inspiring stuff. What else am I missing?
