Songs of the Month: May 2017

May was a strange month in many ways, some good moments and some not so good moments, but we’re now into the days of summer – so that’s to be celebrated, right? There’s been some very good songs out this month at least, some new, some rediscovered but all worth listening to in their own ways:   LCD Soundsystem – “Call the Police” LCD made their long, long, long awaited return at the start of May with two tracks, “Call the Police” and “American Dream”.  — Read more →

Songs of the Month: April 2017

What’s been a great year for music continues with some stellar tracks this month too.

An eclectic mix as there’s likely ever been on this list, February’s has been a mash of tunes from different places but they’ve all fused together to create a great soundtrack to the month. Hollywood Principle – “Firework” (Melad remix) Rocket League’s become a minor addiction since starting playing in the middle of the month, and this tune has become its de facto theme song.  It’s fun it’s happy and it sums up in a musical way the whimsical but modern delight that is playing — Read more →

One series of blogs that I’ve done that fell by the wayside a little last year was songs of the month, where I’d round up the best tunes I’d discovered, or re-discovered, and share them. I already think this year has a lot of potential to be one of the best for music in a long time, so maybe it’s time to kick this off again? Alan Walker – “Alone” “Faded” was one of my favourite songs of last year, but Alan Walker’s music seems — Read more →
