Listen 2022: February Highlights

Is it too soon to put forward ideas for album of the year? Too much to feature the same band in two consecutive round ups? Perhaps we’ll hold fire on any claims of album of the year right now, but there is absolutely a stand out, and as for featuring the same band twice in a row? Can’t have too much of a good thing now, can you?

As always, I entered this year determined to listen to as many albums as I could find, yet even with national lockdowns and furlough galore, I didn’t quite live up to my expectations. That said, there are a handful of albums that I have either enjoyed for a great portion of 2020 or returned to throughout. If we are talking objectively here, they are not necessarily the BEST releases, but they are my own personal favourites. So, in fact in a way, they ARE the best. But you know what I’m getting at here – never wanting to rate albums as good or bad, these are simply a list of albums that I myself have enjoyed a lot this year.

February’s Holy Trinity of Feelings, Food and Music

First things first – she has a job, she has a job, she has a job! True, it was only three weeks of being unemployed, but it felt so much longer, dear lord. Funnily enough, it is another hospitality based job, despite me apparently wanting absolutely nothing to do with that line of work ever again. Things change though don’t they? Sure, perhaps that thing can be sheer desperation, but I prefer to look at it as determination. Why cut off one whole industry just because one job in particular wasn’t for me? So here I am giving it another go, and so far, so good. It certainly helps that I am not having to get the train to work or consider moving to a different town.

Favourites || June ’16

Let’s ignore the fact that I’m freaking out about June already being over, that 2016 is going so quickly, that so many changes, good and bad, have occurred, and I’ve still got so much more to look forward to. I’m currently working on my blog a fair bit, experimenting with layouts and what not, so bear with me while I try to figure out ‘the look’. Anyway here’s my favourite bits from June!
