Yes folks, it’s new feature time.
With an always on, eternally streaming, ever-expanding music scene it’s becoming more and more confusing to keep up with new music. There’s simply so much more of it out there. And that’s AWESOME.
But, in the midst of all this new music sometimes you forget to go back to the classics. Or even to give some albums a second listen. Some of my favourite albums have been slow burners that grow with every listen (such as Oh! Inverted World by the Shins or every Wilco album) and I’m afraid that the tendency to always find the newest thing means missing something brilliant or forget your roots. Sean from Drowned In Sound puts it very well here.
So, starting today I’ll be featuring something old on the site every single Sunday. Call it a reading from the scriptures of rock if you want. Or don’t, but don’t forget who gave rock ‘n’ roll to you. Sometimes it’ll be a classic album from the 60s or 70s. Or it could be a lost or under-rated gem. Or it might just be an album I posted two months ago and have completely changed my mind on. In any way, it’ll be a chance to review and reflect - perfect Sunday afternoon material.
