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. 

So, 
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.

Worst Friend by Keep This Up

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're talking about our lovely friends Keep This Up. I did a review of their debut single Punchlines not long after release, and now they've gone and blessed us with a new track titled Worst Friend. I loved Punchlines so I was super hyped for this track to drop!  This is an incredibly punchy track, but what more did I really expect from Keep This Up? This is a magnificent single and one that has those early 2000's pop-punk vibes that we all seem to rely on to give us some serotonin nowadays. I love the whole vibe of this track, and it really does pack a punch. This is just such an insane track. This track gives such a great and enjoyable listening experience. There's nothing I can really point fault at with this track, yes okay, a lot of pop-punk tracks are all sounding like each other at this point, but this track just has its own unique little twist on the classic pop-punk sound. I love the lyrics, the vocals, the drums, the g

We’re All On Drugs by Dead Bundy

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re going to be talking about a blog favourite, Dead Bundy! Dead Bundy blessed us with another new track on Friday, and it’s called “We’re All On Drugs”.   This is a classic Dead Bundy track, is and one that packs the punch that most Dead Bundy songs seem to pack. I love the whole vibe and feel of this track, I love that there’s a great mix of different elements in the track to add that something to it, and to enable to the song to be engaging. There’s some subtle tempo changes, but they’re nothing dramatic, but I’m not mad at it. Honestly, this just isn’t a bad track whatsoever.  I honestly think this a pretty solid track, and whilst it does sound similar to some of the previous singles from Dead Bundy, it’s very much it’s own track, there’s some similarities within the track which is what gives it that classic Dead Bundy sound, but there’s enough different elements for you to not feel as if you’ve heard this track before. I really like it tho

Disassociate by Light Grey

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Ah, it feels like forever since we last spoke about the ever so lovely, Light Grey. That may be because it has been nearly a year. However, a few things have changed with Light Grey since the release of the likes of Bitter. Light Grey is now a duo rather than a trio, the band took a step back for a few months, but they're back with their brand new single Disassociate. This track dropped TODAY! I'm so hyped about the fact they reached out to me and asked me to do some press for them a couple of weeks ago, and well, here we are! We're going to talk about Disassociate!  Now, Disassociate has a different feel to it in comparison to the more popular and classic Light Grey tracks. Disassociate opts for more of an electronic and Twenty One Pilots and Waterparks feel to it. This doesn't mean that the song is terrible though. I really love the feel of this track, and I think because it has that different sound to it, it has a really interestin
