I realized that I used to talk about what music I was listening to and I haven’t done that in a while. So, let’s begin with what’s new. St. Vincent released a new album just over a month ago called MASSEDUCTION and I like it quite a lot. Los Ageless and Masseduction are probably my favourite songs off of the album from the listens that I’ve given it. I like it, but it doesn’t necessarily feel ground breaking to me or whatever. I don’t feel like it revolutionized my way of thinking about songwriting or anything, but I still enjoy it.
I’ve also been re-listening to Lady Gaga’s Joanne album a fair bit. Again, I like it, but it’s not revolutionary or anything. I still think the songs are beautiful though
I’m excited to see what Bjork’s upcoming album will hold, as well as Franz Ferdinand’s next album. I haven’t got a lot inspiration to go off of lately, as you can see. I’m looking back for the time being, looking for inspiration in the usual places: Nirvana, the Strokes, Bjork, Jack White, etc. Bands/artists that I never really get tired of.
It’s not so bad. I’m probably going to be scoping out an open mic night this coming Saturday and if I get to like the people who run it, maybe next month’s open mic I’ll bring something of my own to sing. If I do, I’ll try to film it for this blog. We’ll see what happens with that.
I’m also trying some digital art so that I can hopefully replace the drawings on the header with better looking digital draw ones. That should be happening at some point in the future.
That’s all I’ve got for now though.
Thanks for reading!
