What I'm Listening To, New Music Thoughts and What's Happening With The Blog?

 Okay, so if you're unaware although, I'm sure most of you are aware, I started university this week. Therefore, I haven't posted as much as I wanted to recently, I've also just had some terrible mental health days and therefore it's made me feel very unmotivated to write. However, Monday posts will still be a thing. They always have been and they always will be. I will be posting my weekly what I'm listening to on a Sunday. I will post content when I'm working with a band on whatever day they desire. 

Mondays - upload day
Sunday - What I'm Listening To...

I want to bring you once a month ideally some new small artists to check out, I want to keep churning out as much content as I can. I don't want to go back down to once a week, not even twice a week. I want to be putting as much effort into content for you all if I can. I can't say what days besides them two I'll upload content because it's all dependant on ideas and uni workload and everything else. But I want to bring you as many posts a week as I can find the effort to do. 

I talk about small artists a hell of a lot. It's one of the things I'm most passionate about, and this is a music blog. I do want to mention small artists more than I currently do though because as I always say, small musicians need the love and support a lot more than bigger artists. I talk about them a lot, but I want to talk about more artists and I want to talk about them more often. So, expect lots more small band content! 
    Because of that, this year's Lemon Awards will be mainly tailored towards small bands! I want to give as many small bands awards as I can. I will make more categories if I have to just to give more small bands awards. This year's Lemon Awards will be the biggest and best to date! 

Anyway, let's talk about some music that's come out recently that I haven't spoken about, and what my thoughts are. Not a review, just some brief thoughts. This isn't really about small bands as I've worked on every release that I'm aware of recently. I might have missed a few but all the ones on my radar I've covered. 

Machine Gun Kelly's album...
    I love MGK, and pop-punk is my favourite genre as I'm sure everyone knows at this point. So, the whole idea had me very excited. The album slaps. We all kind of know that. I think it's incredibly catchy, I've listened to it a hell of a lot since it was released on Friday, and I honestly love it. The novelty is now starting to wear off, but I'm still obsessed with it and I'm still loving it. 

Knuckle Puck's album...
    It's a good album. I expected to love it a little more than I did but saying that I've only listened to it all the way through like once maybe twice. I need to listen to it a lot more, to get my full opinions on it. But it's good, and I think it's decent. Hopefully, it grows on me if I listen to it a little more, and I think it will. 

That's mainly the two releases I haven't really voiced my opinion on. I have tweeted my thoughts about a lot of singles that have come out recently. 

So the last bit, is my What I'm Listening To...

  1. Music is food for the soul, I hope your blog tells us how it makes you feel and what it tastes like.

    Be happy. Youth is often wasted on the young, use every moment, its yours. Good luck with your studies. Just some twitter guy who is now listening to spotify random songs inspired by your playlist. Pretty good.

    1. If you ever want to discover some more small bands, I've got a Spotify playlist for this! Forgot to tag it on the end of today's post, but it's here if you want to check it out!

The 2020 Lemon Awards

 Seems like it was only last month we were doing this, but here we are! The Lemon Awards are back, this is where we take in every little thing that's happened with music, and we give awards to the best! I'm very excited to be bringing you this again! Every year, this get's bigger and better and is always the best post of the year! Most categories get 3 awards 1st, 2nd and 3rd! However, the best release gets 5 just because of the amount of releases! As always, there are physical certificates for the winners! I will in time hand these out to the bands, as I see them, and the one I'm unable to see, I am more than happy to post the certificates, and if some bands want them sooner with how unpridcable the future is, again, more than happy to send them!  So let's get into this! The 2020 Lemon Awards!  I have tried to make this as small band orientated as I could, however, there are some categories where big bands just had to make a little appearance.  Best Release;  10. W

Bath Salts by Holygood

                                         The wonderful lads that are Holygood are back! On Friday they released their new track, Bath Salts. I swear Holygood are on top of the game currently. They’re really out here proving that they are a band that deserves so much more attention. They’re a band who you need to check out because they really are phenomenal. Of course, we all know Holygood are one of my favourite bands so I was very excited to hear they were releasing a new track! Although the title may suggest that this either 1. Holygood really branching out their merch game and not releasing a song instead releasing bath products or 2. Suggesting that Holygood were a big fan of bath salts and decided to write a love song for them. However neither of them are the case, instead, Bath Salts is a belter of a track with so much energy and change that it’s likely to impress many. Bath Salts is a bit different to the other tracks released by Holygood, it's similar to Killing Giants whi

Prospect Music Award 2021: The Final...

So, I didn't actually end up doing the press for the second round of the awards, because I dislocated my shoulder about 5 times in 48 hours.
