As you may be aware, two weeks ago Tom and I moved to Melbourne, Australia. We plan to stay here for around six months before travelling around the rest of Australia! Throughout our time here I will be documenting our experiences but also the music scene, new artists I’ve come across and the music events all around the city.
So I’ve changed my blog name, I’ve chosen ‘no repetitive beats’ as a reference to the 1994 Criminal Justice Bill that prohibited the gathering of 20 or more people playing music that was “wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats”. I wanted something to reflect the musical theme of my blog and my interest in rave culture and electronic music. I’ve missed a week of 7 days 7 songs BUT i’m back, hope you enjoy this week’s choices…
Punchy, electro-funk with quirky vocals and soulful melodies, Nao’s debut LP For All We Know places her firmly into the mix of Britain’s promising new artists.
So I didn’t write a post last week as I was at Tramlines. I had so much fun, I didn’t see tonnes of music but the bits I did see I really enjoyed, highlights were Mr Scruff, Dizzee Rascal, Kelis and Leon Vynehall. So this is a collection of my favourite songs I’ve been listening to the past two weeks. Comment below and let me know what you think of this week’s choices.
Last week all the songs I chose were old, some really old and some just from the past few years but I’ve been listening to a few brand new songs this week. If I post a new song (eg. it has been released in the past month or so) I will put a * in front of it.
A lot of the music I listen to is electronic music, but not exclusively so I’ll try to include a range of genres as I go on.
I spend a hell of a lot of time listening to music and talking about new music I’ve found so I wanted to start a new series of posts about the music I’m into, I’ll try post every Sunday (try being the operative word) with seven songs I’ve been listening to that week.
