Holiday Tunes

14 08 2010

Currently in Italy on a well earned break. So glad I had my new HTC phone with me.

It has meant being able to listen to some of my collection on the move. I had never really got into the whole iPod thing but can clearly see the benefit whilst travelling.

Tracks of the holiday have been:

Paramore – Decode (acoustic)
Editors – Munich
Damien Rice – Amie (live)

My only regret is that I didn’t spend more time pre-holiday adding albums to the phone.

On a side note, if you have an Android phone then make sure you download Double Twist media player. It’s free and much better than the default player.

Ciao from Italy for now


Make it Poignant

I had been contempleting writing this blog for some time, I work hard and wanted something which gave me some warmth and relaxation and a chance to discuss one of my true passions.

I listen to most music but the bands that really set me going are the likes of Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Muse and Editors and some old bands that you would think don’t fit. Marillion are a band I have followed from before my teenage years, a band I discovered like many through my Dad.

Every day I can find myself listening to something completely different, I love to delve back through my collection and unearth an old gem, something that has not been listened to for ages.

Just this weekend I rediscovered the first Fiona Apple album, pure brilliance.

I will be making a daily record on this blog of what I am listening to, buying, downloading or going to watch. You can get involved as well by commenting on the blog posts.
