The Listening Booth – Venom Prison, Waster and Anaal Nathrakh

Hello friends, how are you on this mediocre day? Is life going well? Or does it feel like you’re stuck in a never-ending hell unable to run forwards or backwards and terrified you are going to be trapped there forever? Well, at least we’ve got music! Here’s what I’ve been listening to this week.

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.

The Listening Booth – Agnes Obel, Malfunkshun and Louise Distras

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth. Pull up a chair, get comfy and grab a beer if you want one. Just don’t expect me to pay for it.

The only connecting factor? That I find it interesting (although not necessarily good). Right, let’s see what I’ve been up to.

The Listening Booth – The U-Men, Misfits and John Garcia

Hello friends, welcome to The Listening Booth, the start of a weekly feature where I go dive into the music I’ve been listening to. Yes, it’s very self-indulgent, but I like to indulge myself, and I miss nattering about bands. It’s going to be a very casual blast through a mix of the old and the new, and hopefully a chance for anyone reading to discover something that they didn’t know they loved.
