Today’s January Joy post is all about new music, which is one of my favourite things. When I do my monthly updates I try to give you a little snapshot into what I’m up to through music anyway, so this post was a nice, easy one to write.
I can’t say I’m typical when it comes to music and it really depends on my mood. These days I either listen to dance music or mellow music, oscillating depending purely on when I feel happy or sad. For all decent dance music, I’d recommend a visit to MixMag, aka my daily google.
I was brought up on house music – Danny Rampling, Orbital, Paul Oakenfold… it really is my first love. I am not particularly an expert on names or years or anything like that, and I’m certainly not a music snob. But if you pop on Shoom dance classics, I’m happy.
So there is some new music for you to try. Now for you to help me. I’m having a bit of an indie, fluffy, mellow, soft, golden music revival. I can’t listen to dance music *all* the time, after all. I’m not a trendy indie cindie and I am terrible with music names – therefore your massively alternative bands with name like pigeon-feeding-detectives-on-a-bike will totally have passed me by. I’m going to post a few of my favourites as videos here for you to enjoy, and if there is a track you think I might like please leave it in the comments!
Phosphorescent - Wolves
Teenage Teardrops (Pyramid remix) - HeartsRevolution
Iron & Wine - Naked as we came
Hope you enjoy these songs, lets's have a talk about music in the comments!
Til next time x
