  • Atari Hey pal, I bet you?d enjoy the new single Parchment
    March 27 09:18 PM
  • neekafat It's amazing, can't stop listening to "Favor"
    March 12 08:16 PM
  • Evok Ahh stahp ur making me blushful!!
    March 11 05:47 PM
  • neekafat so proud of you for your love of the new julien (;
    March 7 06:13 PM
  • Winesburgohio : 3 *whispers sultrily* u have my complete approbation
    March 4 05:07 AM
  • Winesburgohio I know youre too pure to masturbate but I can only hope the new Julien Baker roused you to hitherto unexplored erotic heights nonetheless!
    March 3 09:39 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack edit nm ive just seen your 4.9 yay
    March 2 06:28 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack love ya blush thank you i am wholly underprepared for this endeavour and will try not to screw it up lol. not touched the new julien as im terrified that it won't live up to my unreasonable expectations ahhh but i should probably check it. im assuming you're working on some exceptionally pretty words for it rn? hopefully its landed well for you!
    March 2 06:27 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell oh lol, listening to it would defs be advised ;] lots of big impressions, lots of interesting decisions. if my vibe is accurate, you'll have Julien on the brain throughout the year anyway, so fingers crossed the flurry of exciting thoughts potentially orbiting you rn will come down to earth and you'll find it easy to lay out (if you so please!!) [ hiya sowing!]
    March 2 02:05 PM
  • SowingSeason Sorry you're hitting a bit of a wall. Hopefully you're just referencing the review and nothing beyond :-) I'll happily toss DTs up top for the time being, and if you tackle it then I'll just pull the old switch-a-roo. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help, always.
    March 2 01:21 PM
  • SowingSeason Where's my fly swatter, dammit (but I agree with JOTW, I'm a fan of your work)
    March 2 01:01 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell psst psst, fly on the wall: stick at that JB review!! wanna read your lovely words (and am suffering similarly with the new Cave rn :[) peace to you
    March 2 12:59 PM
  • SowingSeason I super appreciate the offer, but I can't commit to it. Looks like we have a decent fallback option from one of our newest contributors, so I'm about to read that review and see if it's up to snuff. I'll wait for your submission first, but no pressure if you find yourself with a case of writer's block. :-) hope you've been well by the way!
    March 2 12:48 PM
  • Dewinged Thank you Blush, if it wasn't for your constant effort and advise to improve my writing I wouldn't have even applied! Love you man!
    March 2 09:48 AM
  • ian b nah nah nah you go for it :') save the spotlight for the users until yr done. im gonna probably review Hospital Bracelets debut, which i think you'd certainly enjoy aspects of btw!
    March 2 04:24 AM
  • ian b thank you uwu i genuinely wouldn't have been able to without all the pointers youve given me over the years. also you first ;) i would snag the Julien Baker review but you best know that i'm waiting for your's instead !!!!
    March 2 03:58 AM
  • MiloRuggles Allow me to deflect that praise back in your direction. Thanks for the vote of confidence, it means a lot coming from somebody whose writing is of such a consistently excellent quality.I personally think you're onto something in not commenting much. I was aghast to learn I had passed 1000
    March 2 03:44 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack i neeeeed to jam that Hayley Williams, and yeah damn the Julien hype is real rn. im terrified of listening to it cause i know it won't ever mean as much to me as sprained ankle but ugh i want to love it to death so bad. my main jam atm is still the new psychedelic porn crumpets record, but i may give the new Black Sheep Wall a go. also returning to some of the old favourites (the tallest man on earth type sing along goodness). that Richard Dawson record is also amazing if you have a mo
    February 23 10:08 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack ye i get you, sorry to hear that its bringing down your uni experience mate, i know id be livid. if it makes you feel any better, i also feel like im going nowhere in my job lol, it's hard to develop when you can get any supervision cause everyones wfh and not available to listen to a junior panic over basic tasks. i digress ... at least im still employed, they almost fired me at the start of all this haha
    February 23 10:05 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack I hope everything else going aight with you these days, in the current strange circumstances. You been listening to anything particularly lovely lately?
    February 6 02:04 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Cheers mate ( : yeah the current contrib cohort is pretty neato, supportive bunch of people too. Ah cool - great that you're looking into employment law, though 5 years is a bit of a slog. I wouldn't worry too much about work experience tbh, at interviews I got asked more about non-legal extracurricular stuff than the useless internships I did tbh. Job prospects should hopefully bounce back post covid too!
    February 6 02:03 PM
  • Pangea Great! i'm curious to hear your take
    February 5 02:25 PM
  • Pangea Hey Blush, this is a maximalist and quirky indie/chamber pop album that still manages to be cute and warm https://www.sputnikmusic.com/soundoff.php?albumid=387514 maybe you would dig?
    February 5 01:34 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack On law, yeah, after 2 years of in practice training I qualified as an employment lawyer last September, so phew, finally made it haha. i have no doubt you'll be absolutely fine. the first few years are daunting but easier than you think, provided you seek out a firm with a good culture / respect for its people, cause they give you loads of support and make the transition from academic to practical law a lot easier. where are you at along the process? job apps yet or nah?
    February 1 09:27 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack For sure - I completely agree re the songwriting/music feeling almost spontaneous, even though it's likely been meticulously crafted and put together. the illusion of a genuine in the moment experience is just lovely. and cheers mate! means a lot ( : particularly re the global list, lots of long evenings went into that lol. no plans for staff rn i don't think, for various reasons - chiefly that I still don't really like my writing lol - but it's certainly a long term goal for me
    February 1 09:23 AM
  • AsleepInTheBack hey mate, hope all's well with you and yours. just wanted to drop by to say hi, and also thank you for writing all the lovely words re lenker's songs. growing into one of my faves of all time, so thanks for shouting its praise and convincing me to give it a whirl.
    January 28 12:07 PM
  • hal1ax haha nice man. i thought you'd dig it. and yeah i love it as well tbh. it's like old arca meets wicca phase or some sh1t lol. the mix is a little muddy at times but never rly enough to deter my enjoyment of it. glad you like it tho.. i was rly stoked when i found it and felt like i needed to spread the gospel a bit lol.
    January 25 01:50 AM
  • hal1ax https://monom.bandcamp.com/album/scarcity
    January 24 12:38 AM
  • neekafat thank you so much blush :) I was really worried about it, Johnny helped me fix it up good!!
    January 17 12:37 AM
  • hal1ax i honestly don't know anything similar man. i've never met another trance-emo rap hybrid before lol. but i'd like more too
    November 9 04:26 PM
  • hal1ax weird that that Doves record this year isn't getting more traction on here. been playing the sh1t out of that thing
    November 9 02:48 AM
  • dmathias52 Hoping to have something up this evening!
    October 25 09:07 PM
  • neekafat Uh uhhhhhhh whatcha looking for??
    September 27 08:04 PM
  • dedex many many thanks ur a sweety
    September 27 11:11 AM
  • neekafat UwU
    September 26 06:20 PM
  • JesperL thanks so much! from exile is really sweet, i honestly wouldn't be opposed to them continuing down the more folky/country-esque path for their next full length as a healthy change of pace
    September 26 07:25 AM
  • Atari I love how huge the hard way is
    August 25 03:04 PM
  • Atari I do think it?s a bit too long tho after listening to it again today :/ some very strong moments tho without a doubt
    August 24 04:06 PM
  • Atari probably between a 3.5 or 4! I was listening to Going Grey yesterday and I think it's actually grown off me a bit.. this one will probably have more lasting power overall
    August 24 02:18 PM
  • Atari any chance you?ll review the new Front Bottoms?
    August 23 08:07 PM
  • Slex I want to see Saint Maud so so bad, how the hell did you watch it? Thought it was still in release limbo
    August 17 03:30 AM
  • SowingSeason Yeah it sounded great to me too. The other songs released thus far have also really grown on me. I'm excited to see how it will stack up against Halloween because I already suspect that it will top Dying Star quite easily.
    August 14 02:16 PM
  • SowingSeason If you want to add a summary to display for your featured Rich People review go for it, otherwise I'll just let it roll with half of your intro paragraph :-)
    August 13 01:49 PM
  • Gyromania I'm assuming you don't have fb lol. Anyway, I was going to suggest Bloodstained: Curse of thr Moon. Gorgeous pixel art, gerat mechanics and soundtrack, and honestly the perfect level of difficulty. I think it does Castlevania better than old school Castlevania. If you aren't acclimated to old schoool Castlevania it's prob going to piss you off lol. CotM is a fantastic jumping off point for getting into the genre. CotM2 juat launched a few days ago and I've nearly 100% it but it's WAY harder
    July 18 12:25 PM
  • SowingSeason Nope! I need to hear it now though. I've been on a huge Ruston streak lately. 'Poison' practically chokes me up.
    July 15 01:36 PM
  • Gyromania Do I have you on fb?
    July 15 10:26 AM
  • Gyromania mechanical twists that change how you play the game, which is as much as I can say without spoiling it lol. Also Shovel Knight Treasure Trove, which just features an insane amount of content and is one of the best modern day platformers I've played; possibly like it even more than Celeste. And it's more metroidvania than straight up platformer but if you haven't played Hollow Knight yet, that's my game of the decade
    July 9 04:41 PM
  • Gyromania Ah, s*** I'm bad at responding. Sorry man meant to reply way sooner. Celeste is an incredible game unlike any I've ever played. If you're looking for something as mechanically fun and challenging, well, you probably won't find it lol. If you're a fan of old school Castlevania types, go for Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon - easily one of the best games I played last decade. Also gotta recommend The Messenger which is another decade favourite of mine. Super fun platforming with some massive
    July 9 04:38 PM
  • Atari knew I could count on you :]
    July 8 02:20 PM
  • Atari loving this new single by the front bottoms (montgomery forever)!
    July 6 04:38 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack you're gonna make me cry with that 2.5
    June 17 08:21 AM
  • dmathias52 Yuuuup completely obsessed. Brave was already my most listened to song this year, beyond hyped for the full length after Rubber
    June 14 04:29 AM
  • neekafat **** yeah man, so glad you're enjoying it c: Any faves?
    June 1 09:22 PM

    May 19 08:54 PM
  • hal1ax ayy what's up my dude. uhhh initial favorites would prob have to be outta my head, pikachu, low, and sunset sunrise. loving how moody and hypnagogic this record is though. how about you?
    May 17 09:38 PM
  • Willie That's fine. She's just looking for a tentative date. She has bosses to report to, ha ha.
    April 30 01:25 PM
  • Willie Hey. Checking in on the Emily Keener review. I received an e-mail from the Rep today.
    April 30 06:10 AM
  • Atari hell yeah!! felt good to 5 another Smithies album. never thought they'd write an album this optimistic and your review did it justice. how is the closing title track so damn good?
    April 29 02:16 PM
  • Atari Ooooh! Of course not, my man! Can?t wait to read it with my morning coffee :)
    April 25 04:02 PM
  • Atari Lol. My daughter?s been taking up most of my free time outside of work ;) I have a couple paragraphs but still have a ways to go.. post yours first?!
    April 24 03:09 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Where the hell is my goshdarn commemorative keychain, huh? Love ya blush - I'll do ya proud (i hope).
    April 23 04:21 PM
  • MiloRuggles Prost, my man
    April 23 12:46 PM
  • Atari Cheers bud! I probably won?t have time to finish mine until this weekend so by all means feel free to still post yours first :) looking forward to seeing what you came up with as well!
    April 23 04:13 AM
  • Atari Will I be stepping on your toes if I review the new Smith Street? If you?re still covering it I?ll let you post your review first but I love it so much I don?t know if I can help myself, haha
    April 22 04:42 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell !!! excite :] :]

    March 21 05:24 PM
  • neekafat It's pretty good, a bit overrated but there are some big gems! And yeah, been having a lot of time on my hands lately for obvious reasons so I think I might actually slip back into reviewing more regularly for a bit (:

    February 22 09:08 PM
  • Atari nice!! yeah OTIP is awesome but I actually prefer After the Party, I think that's my favorite Menzingers album
    February 19 12:22 AM
  • parksungjoon aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh there's so many things i want to say in response to that that the shoutbox can't contain them all. is there any way i could contact you privately if you don't mind? bunch of sput folks got me to be more active on discord lately for example
    February 18 02:36 PM

    February 15 03:45 PM
  • parksungjoon i am once again asking for your criticismical support. just because its a pisstake doesnt mean it cant be improved now i know humour is subjective but id really like your opinion in particular on this one https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/80856/Sadistik-Exekution-The-Magus/

  • WatchItExplode Violence on top of that is just a big yikes.
    February 4 12:29 AM
  • WatchItExplode I dont know all the players but I read things that indicate calculated manipulation and a clear lack of empathy.
    February 4 12:27 AM
  • WatchItExplode He was obviously twisted up inside but these signs point towards him purposefully hurting others without remorse.
    February 3 10:47 PM
  • WatchItExplode Band really should have stayed dead. I imagine they are now. A truly sick person.
    February 2 06:11 PM
  • WatchItExplode I will obviously look it up but my God what's happened?
    February 2 03:36 AM

  • AsleepInTheBack No worries, just gonna spam threads and shoutboxes in search of conversation. What you up to these days?
    November 8 11:06 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Glad to hear it (: cant complain myself. I have not no, been out of the loop recently with music, will check. Where are people chilling these days - discord or sput or some third new dimension? Would be good to catch up with everyone
    November 3 07:26 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Hey blush, hope you're doing alright these days, it's been a minute.
    November 1 11:58 PM
  • Slex Love ya too my dude!
    November 1 05:14 AM
  • Slex Si, that is correct. I?m friends with a good number of Sput peeps
    November 1 05:12 AM
  • Slex I don?t have Discord so FB would be better haha, how can I find you?
    November 1 05:03 AM
  • Slex Not trying to be dramatic but I?ve decided I?m officially quitting the site for good, is there another way we could talk?
    November 1 04:58 AM
  • Atari no worries! I think the vocals have improved on Proper. vs. their Great Wight debut but yeah maybe give it another spin when you're more in the mood for this kind of thing
    October 31 02:47 PM
  • Atari just discovered an awesome band you need to check. Great Wight and Proper. (same band, they changed their name to Proper.) kinda like Say Anything but with an African-American singer; seems like something you'd enjoy
    October 30 11:31 PM
  • brodega The list you made that date. Entry number seven. I appreciate your appreciation fam
    October 25 09:45 AM
  • Atari Oh I just saw my comment got cut off! They have big front bottom vibes ;)
    October 24 01:52 PM
  • brodega 8/28/19, #7. Good looks
    October 23 08:53 PM
  • Atari yo, I think you'd love this Devon Kay
    October 23 07:47 PM
  • WatchItExplode It's very good but it makes me realize the moment in time that I fell in love with the band can never be reclaimed.
    October 22 03:07 AM
  • WatchItExplode The House With No Doorbell is up for better or worse.
    October 22 01:33 AM
  • Swag2 honestly, probably pretty boy millionaires or skate boy (both a fair bit older). outta curiosity, i feel like you'd enjoy this (despite its lyrical content)... interested to know what you think: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjAAF3VCznE
    October 20 12:49 AM
  • Atari That Johanna Warren single is pretty great! Thx for the heads up, and for reading my Lagwagon review ;)
    October 7 05:40 AM
  • granitenotebook np, ty for your constant words and i am glad you are enjoying it
    October 3 05:07 AM
  • Atari I'm good, my man! just as busy as ever so haven't had much time to review but I do have something coming up ;) and I've only heard this album and the last one by Frankie Cosmos and the last one was just ok. There are several tracks on the new one I really love including the one I sent you. just seemed like your kind of thing. apparently a lot of people don't like her, lol. hope things are going well on your end!
    September 28 03:44 PM
  • Atari hey man, it's been a minute! I would love to hear what you think of this track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CxmXgOgjbQ
    September 27 03:24 PM
  • eggyolk now that i think about it, the beat on shame is a ****ing mess lol... but tracy carries it, despite its cliche pop rap-isms.... rec wise, i'm gonna say peep keenanza's soundcloud (slikk's been dropping a track a day-ish: new tape otw???), otherwise: https://emoyardii.bandcamp.com/album/ape-s***
    September 25 06:47 AM
  • eggyolk pretty much what i expected honestly... didn't like much of it save bad for you and maybe shame. dk wtf he was doing trying to sound like thug on that one track either. it's plain to see that the industry is starting to play their hand with him (more overtly at least).
    September 25 06:39 AM
  • Gyromania haha it sure is! samus from metroid turned into a hollow knight character. i just beat the 5th pantheon in godhome, something i never thought i'd be able to pull off. now i can rest until silksong comes out
    August 10 04:08 PM
  • Atari Sry for the late reply! That?s kind of you to say. I do miss writing but work and life has been so demanding lately :/ luci was supposed to cover the new Florist but he must have bailed, haha. Would love to read your thoughts on it!
    August 9 03:10 PM
  • KingQueenKnave Thanks. You are the only one lol. I dont feel welcome hete.
    August 9 07:27 AM
  • Slex I?ve been suffering writers block myself, must be a damn bug goin around. I?m sorry to hear it bud :( New Slaughter Beach is pretty solidly his weakest/most boring release but there?s some interesting lyricism so I?ll revisit it at least. Really hoping you love glass beach, album continuously blows me away
    August 4 05:55 AM
  • Slex Ily and I?m excited to see whatever yr next review is
    August 4 03:07 AM
  • Atari Nice Florist rating. Hope you?ve been well!!
    August 3 01:39 PM
  • neekafat No how is it??
    August 3 09:26 AM
  • TheSpaceMan doing well, trying to survive my company's layoff rounds which is sticky but otherwise life's been treatin' me well. I was thinking the other day that I wanna write more reviews, means a lot to me when you say you'd like to see more pop out from me!
    July 25 01:24 AM
  • neekafat "Yard" is lifeeeee
    July 21 03:38 AM
  • TheSpaceMan hey dude, huge congratulations on making staff. must've missed it, but there's really not many people more deserving of it than you. keep it going my man!
    July 19 01:28 AM
  • MiloRuggles That's cool man. Freelancing can definitely work out, just keep your eyes on the prize. Forreal tho, networking while you're at uni is massive.We definitely share some taste looking at your ratings, I just haven't rated anything haha
    July 8 09:15 AM
  • MiloRuggles Hey, thanks a lot for the feedback! No doubt I've read and enjoyed your reviews over the years, I remember your Sprained Ankle one pretty well :)Not an alt, I've done some writing/editing in the past, but it's been freelance wherein I pretty much didn't get paid and was censored, so it's been a few years since I just went haywire and said whatever I want. I've lurked here for forever, and I'm kind of just venting steam by writing really selfishly for a change.
    July 7 08:27 AM
  • Slex Man I finally checked Corbin and he?s so good, what a voice!
    July 7 06:27 AM
  • Gyromania it reminds me of when i was really getting into emo back when i was in high school. 'in your own way' is easily my favourite song on the album. even if it's kind of cheesy, i just love the vocals. already played the song like 20 times lol. and yeah. my roommates have already made fun of me for listening to it haha
    July 3 06:08 AM
  • Gyromania found out about a little light of our own through your write up for 'in our own way'. this is actually rly good stuff.

  • ian b also, regarding Tracy those are definitely some of his best (besides popstar i dont care too much for), but XOXO has really big highlights, and VAMPIRE SPENDIN MONEY is easily his best pre-gbc project. but yea both Castles (esp II) projects are probably my favorite thing he's been apart of, all great verses plus "Your Favorite Dress" is easily Tracy's most entrancing song. also one last question, but what's your favorite overall project from Peep? for me it's either California Girls or LP Part 1
    June 15 04:18 PM
  • ian b oh shiiiiit, yeah wow those are all incredible picks. most of those could absolutely be in my top 5-10. i completely forgot about Lights on paper for some reason, but that's definitely a top 3 for me. and yeah I'M LEBRON and PMIG are top 10 for me as well. Also those are great Peep picks, Light Show is very underrated imo but i dont know, there's something with me that i just can't really enjoy any Yunggoth song besides IDK How to Kill Myself.

  • sixdegrees I like blue chews for the taste....I dont even need them
    June 15 05:27 AM
  • ian b thanks for the warm welcome!! missed you dude, but the first favorites that come to mind are 1. SLEEPER, 2. Absolute in Doubt/JLIM, 3. Suffer On, 4. Kill Me 5. Rest 6. Scars on Me, your turn now ;) Also, since we?re on the topic of GBC, what are your favorites from Peep or Tracy?? i feel like i don?t know your opinions on their older work besides ratings. if i had to give a top 3 for peep it'd be 1. Veins 2. California World (or literally every single Nedarb collaboration lol), 3. Downtown

  • Slex Yr praise and analysis has helped most of the way my friend
    June 5 11:46 PM
  • luci he streamlined his sound and arrived at a more pure melancholy. it's a gentle slow drip of a record, I like it more with each listen
    May 26 10:13 AM
  • luci came here to rec the organ tapes but someone's ahead of me, good to see
    May 25 12:53 PM
  • discard that aside, i'm doing pretty well. also gonna ask you a solid since i don't write anymore and request that you review the new organ tapes album out on friday (i preordered so i can hit you a dl -- the lead single is beautiful): https://tobagotracks.bandcamp.com/album/hunger-in-me-living
    May 22 03:58 AM
  • discard realistically, had there not been fallacious media reporting from every national major outlet, the result should've been (give/take qld because bob brown dug that hole for all of us) a landslide to the alp... but all the fake news around the 40% death tax (that was never on the table), the rhetoric with labor taking away utes, labor taking away weekends (when in reality, cutting penalty rates is going to steal so many more weekends than any climate policy), etc made that result impossible
    May 22 03:57 AM
  • granitenotebook thank you!! i really appreciate hearing that from you because i admire you and your work.
    May 21 05:54 PM
  • Jacquibim You're very welcome, hope you enjoy most of whats there. I omitted some of the more extreme modern classical out there, but if you end up liking a lot of what's on the second half of the list I can give you more specific recs. And I've just been preoccupied with life stuff and haven't had the motivation to write as much. Whether it comes back idk
    May 6 01:26 AM
  • Jacquibim Also is this the Mandela effect or did you used to have way more than 28 reviews?
    May 5 12:43 PM
  • Jacquibim enjoy fren https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=187192
    May 5 12:12 PM

  • neekafat Patiently waiting for that new Glen Hansard 5.0 (;
    April 20 07:42 AM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Ah amazing, thank you! All found (and fix'd)
    April 12 12:08 AM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Heyhey!! Am in awe of how your reviews are not only well written but also feature actual question marks :O How do you insert them (or is it a staff secret)?
    April 11 03:41 PM
  • neekafat I haven't been listening to too much folk you haven't heard yet but some old classics are Mary Chapin Carpenter's "Stones in the Road" and The Swell Season (I forgot if you checked that) c: Otherwise some new stuff I've heard that you might dig are Copeland's "Blushing" and Madeline Kenney's "Perfect Shapes"!!!
    April 8 06:23 AM
  • neekafat Hey Blush!! Gonna be on set all day but I definitely have some I can send your way soon (:
    April 7 05:27 PM
  • luci deleted the last comment by accident oops. glad you got something out of that piece~
    April 7 04:40 PM
  • SowingSeason I went through and attributed any blog pieces you completed as a contributor to your staff WP account (as opposed to the generic "staff" account). You can review these pieces by clicking on the blog tab at the top of your profile. If there are any you did that I'm missing, please do me the favor of linking me to it/them so that I can credit you properly. Thanks!

  • AsleepInTheBack oh wow, nice one mate! how did it all go in the end? you enjoying law more generally? probably less the advocacy route for me, I'm doing a lot of non-contentious work at the moment. working in the construction team, so lots of drafting building contracts and consultant appointments. not heard the new one no, any good?
    March 30 11:58 AM
  • Winesburgohio new laptop soon!!! https://files.gamebanana.com/img/ico/sprays/simpcat.png !!! feeling extremely smug about backing up my music and porn (in the form of javanese nature documentaries and Big Wang films)
    March 26 11:00 PM
  • Dewinged Do u know it!? It's from a comic called Transmetropolitan! 100% recommend!

    March 16 01:57 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack top notch benji rating btw
    March 15 09:52 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Yeah I get you, can be hard to tie everything together and argue it eleqlouently on the fly. Erm, all sorts really, some days writing lots of reports to clients, sometimes drafting 150 page contracts, sometimes just photocopying s***. Whatever comes my way really, it's good fun, no day is the same that's for sure haha
    March 10 04:37 PM
  • MarsKid Thank you, I appreciate it!
    March 10 01:43 PM
  • AsleepInTheBack Ooh nice one, yeah mooting and advocacy is good fun, though always makes me nervous. Hope you enjoy it, what's it on? They almost sent me to make representations at court the other week, was bricking it
    March 7 04:59 PM
  • Nocte If it makes you feel any better I?m tipped to do less than 40 reviews this year haha.

    February 23 05:07 AM
  • Hawks Bruh thanks so much for introducing me to Wicca, I?m OBSESSED.
    February 22 07:02 PM
  • Atari Ugh, Crushing is soooo good
    February 22 04:09 PM
  • Atari btw, any plans on reviewing that new Julia Jacklin? Head Alone is so damn good, been addicted to that song for weeks now. my 3.5 was a placeholder rating, so could go up or down :3
    February 21 04:09 PM
  • Atari her latest is her best imo but Burn Your Fire For No Witness is also very good. happy listening!
    February 21 04:04 PM
  • Atari also I?m assuming you?ve heard Angel Olsen but if not I highly recommend her. Very comparable to Jacklin vocally
    February 21 03:41 AM
  • Atari I personally think it?s a step up from her last LP but I?ll be curious to hear what you think! And no I haven?t heard her band, thx for the rec
    February 21 03:38 AM
  • Atari New Julia Jacklin is streaming on npr.org just FYI ;)
