What a wild year it's been. A new job, regrettably, has slowed down writing quite a bit, but I'm hoping to get the ball rolling again shortly. I've got one trick up my sleeve, which involves a curious email requesting a review that I'll be posting for all to see. We need some humor around here, after all.
Despite mangling my turntable's needle a few months ago, I've got a few vinyl features planned, too. In particular, Cara Neir's Portals to a Better, Dead World is up first, with an explosive collection of music that sounds as good as the cover might suggest. I'll also be including the last few purchases I've grabbed from Gogmagogical Records, who, sadly, is calling it a day from the record-making business. All the best, Mark.
And if that isn't enough, I'll be shooting for a year-end record list. I always find this incredibly hard to put together, given the amount of music that goes in one ear and out the other, but this time, it's actually going to happen. As long as I prepare and examine my collection a few weeks before hand, we'll be golden.
So, hang tight. I miss blogging as much as this post probably suggests, and I've got to kick my job's butt to tell it who's boss. Blogging comes first, you know.
2013 has been a great year for music, folks.
P.S. After two weeks of little to no internet connection, it's great to have it back.
