The next three months...

This is my life for the next three months, library, library and more library. This picture is just a small amount of the books I've been using for research. Sorry I have been a bit M.I.A in February, university started up again and it is really hard. I have to knuckle down, get my work done the best I can and finish my degree! This post is to say I haven't forgotten about my blog, I definitely will keep at it, but posts might not be regular up until May. I have so many ideas to post and I'm getting sent so much great music to listen to, after I hand in my dissertation, I will get back to it! 
Hope all is well.

Age Of Anxiety - Rodney Cromwell

Well, 2015 is definitely the year of listening to music I wouldn't usually listen to! I've been told about this great electro pop artist Rodney Cromwell and his latest release 'Age Of Anxiety' on the label Happy Robots.

When Rodney describes himself, he modestly says "I make music which mainly appeals to the under-fives market".

I have never really had a chance to get into electro pop myself, I've never really been exposed to it as I've always been a singer with just me and my guitar. I was given the chance to listen to the album before the release date and I can definitely admire the intricate work that has gone into the making of this album. He uses vintage lo-fi synths and old drum machines in his work, and despite the title of the album, it is a really upbeat fun record. Check out the lead single 'Barry Was An Arms Dealer' on Soundcloud. 

The album will be out on March 9th but you can preorder it on iTunes from February 9th!

Let me know what you think!
