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.

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing. It's that good that I don't understand how they haven't blown up yet, this track is everything! It's incredible! It's everything you could want and more from a Misplaced track! The chorus on this track is incredible. The bridge, the verses, the drums, the guitar, the vocals! Everything on this track is next level, and the lyrics even g

But, I'm back and today I'm introducing you to a new band! About a week or so ago, Kaileb reached out to me and asked me if I'd be willing to do a post about Blue Sunday, and of course, I said yes.  So, Blue Sunday is a 4-piece alt-rock band from Suffolk, England. The band consists of;  - Rozie Smith on Rhythm Guitar and Vocals - Kaileb Cargill on Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals - Ben Regester on Bass - Ryan Meyers on Drums If you're a fan of the likes of; Arctic Monkeys, Paramore or The Offspring then Blue Sunday could be the band for you!  Blue Sunday have one track out currently, and that was released back on the 5th December 2020, the track is titled 'Mirrors'.  I really like Mirrors, I think it's a decent song, it's got a good beat to it. It's engaging to listen to, and it's just a gene
