I’m a Glasgow-based music enthusiast and part-time writer with an eclectic taste that ranges from folk to dubstep, post-rock to jazz. I try to keep an open mind and am always keen to hear new things. For me, the best music looks for new ways to elicit an emotional response. People who try new things and aren’t afraid to fail are far more interesting than those who find refuge in the familiar. What bores me rigid are acts who just recycle stuff from the past without attempting to find new ways to say things—this just about sums up nearly every popular “indie” band of the last ten years. But in spite of this there’s just as much exciting music being made today as ever. Hopefully, this humble little blog will point a few ears in the direction of interesting things from both the past and present. It’s not intended to be proselytizing, just an honest reflection of my opinions and enthusiasms.
