What The F**k Is Happening To Me!



I got this on 12" single the other week so it's not for download as it is still available for sale. It's a bit gothic I can hear a lot of the Banshees and other vampire styled bands which  would normally put me right off but I think that the Dan Carey production which is in a similar vein to the stuff he has done with Sexwitch and Toy makes it so appealing. It has had a fair amount of deck time recently.

What is slightly more troubling than my turning to the dark side is that on Monday on a whim,  while strolling back towards Waverley Station I popped into Fopp and bought 1989 by Taylor Swift. I may still have been drunk as L and I were in Edinburgh for an overnight on Sunday but I doubt it due to the price of beer in Stockbridge! Anyway, I have to admit that it is now stuck to the turntable, it's magic except for Bad Blood which is a bit meh. I really do like this album, not in some ironic hipster way I think it is very well crafted pop music.  Until a few weeks ago I knew who Ms Swift was  due to her removing her music from Spotify which I rather approved of  but had never knowingly listened to any of her music, then I heard Ryan Adams version of Shake It Off which sent me to the original which I think is absolutely fantastic. I asked L if she had heard of her and she told me that she had bought 1989 on cd and had played it a few times but I was obviously not listening.

By the way, Max is totally embarrassed and I also think disappointed as he thinks "Swift is crap".

I'm not sure I should have confessed to either of those things.

Pumarosa - Priestess

i bought this my my 7 year old for her birthday and it has been on a lot in the car. very good pop. the ryan adams stands up well as a piece of work in its own right, which says something both of him and the original.

The Pumarosa track is very good. I haven't heard the T Swizzle album - what I hear on the radio sounds like well above average pop. But I approve of this post entirely. Good work. Challenge expectations and all that.
