The Listening Booth – PUP, Martha and Amigo the Devil

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth. We have a bit of a theme running through what I’ve been listening to this week, but I’ll leave that for you to figure out (it’s not going to be hard). Whether you agree with my ramblings or not, it’s three stunning albums, so if you’d prefer to close this shite and listen to them, I won’t hold it against you.

The Listening Booth – Devin Townsend, Brutus and My Diligence

Hello friends, it’s WrestleMania Weekend which means that as you read this, I’m probably drunk and watching Swoggle fight a giant panda, but that hasn’t stopped me listening to music! So, take a seat in the Listening Booth and dive into what I’ve been plugging into my ears this week.

The Listening Booth – La Dispute, The Cinematic Orchestra and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I breakdown what I have been plugging into my ears in the last week. It’s part album reviews, part confessional and part me making everything about, well, me.

The Listening Booth – Holy Pinto, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard and Svalbard

Hello friends, Romans and indeed countrymen, welcome to the Listening Booth where I ramble incoherently about what I’ve been putting in my ears. This week we’ve got some music that hit uncomfortably close to home for moi, the brilliantly named Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard and a touch hardcore from last year that I never got a chance to talk about. Sound good? Too bloody right it does.

The Listening Booth – Blood Youth, Mineral and PJ Harvey

Hello friends, pull up a chair, crack open a beverage and get comfortable in The Listening Booth because I’m about to do some rambling. I’ve realised that if you were coming to these articles looking for actual reviews, you’d often leave sorely disappointed. They’re closer to extended therapy sessions where I try and capture my emotional response to an album. I’m telling you this because that approach is horrifically self-indulgent, so if you aren’t interested, I don’t want to waste your time. Otherwise, this week we’re diving into a new release from Blood Youth and a couple of oldies from Mineral and PJ Harvey. Enjoy!

The Listening Booth – HEALTH, At The Gates and Single Mothers

Hello my lovelies, welcome to The Listening Booth. After all the new releases last week, we’ve got a mixed bag this time around with one from the present and two from the past. Although, I have seen both of the bands from the past live in the last couple weeks, and can confirm that rumours of their demise are greatly exaggerated. The albums are from back yonder, but the bands themselves are not. Anyway, let’s stop wanging on about it and get on with, well, wanging on about it!
