The Listening Booth – Ramona, Fresh and Shonen Knife

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I ramble about what I’ve been putting into my ears this week. Truthfully, this might be one of the more rambling examples of the form as I’m not sure I managed to get any of my points across. I tried, though, so give me some credit. Fingers crossed you get something out of it, and at the very least you can enjoy the music.

The Listening Booth – Her Name Is Calla, Royal Republic and Camden Rocks

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I dive into what I’ve been putting in my ears over the last week. This time around, we have a potential modern classic followed up by something completely different, but still a lot of fun. I’m then going to finish up by having another blab about a festival I went to, so look forward to that.

The Listening Booth – Petrol Girls, Destrage and Slam Dunk

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth, where I lecture people on what music I’ve been putting in my ears while occasionally working out some personal issues. I don’t think there should be too much of the latter this week, but you never know. We’re diving into some feminist post-hardcore, Italian, em, tech-hardcore? I honestly don’t know what you’d call it, and a ramble about something completely different. Enjoy.

The Listening Booth – Employed To Serve, Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties and Pkew Pkew Pkew

Hello friends, even with Best Of The Super Juniors taking up a shitload of my time, I still had room for The Listening Booth to saunter into the schedule. In the past week I’ve been having a fucking awesome time with Employed To Serve, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties and PKEW PKEW PKEW all of whom I am about to incomprehensibly ramble about. Strap yourself in and enjoy. Or don’t. I won’t be angry. Well, maybe a little.

The Listening Booth – The Wildhearts, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Amon Amarth

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth where I ramble incoherently about what I’ve been putting into my ears. It has a been week of heavy hitters as we have the return of The Wildhearts, Frank Carter continuing his journey with The Rattlesnakes and some Vikings. You probably won’t discover something new, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun all the same.

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. This week we’re going into some heavy hitters as we kick things off with La Dispute, luxuriate in The Cinematic Orchestra and say goodbye with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Enjoy.

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.
