I thought it was time for a website refresh, so I spent some time looking through all of the WordPress themes available and found this simple and clean one that suits me just fine. I then had some more fun putting the banner together. I’ll give a virtual chocolate fish to anyone who can name all of the people/ bands in the pictures.
As for music I have bought recently, I have only three to write about…
NOFX – Punk In Drublic
NOFX are a band I have heard several songs from thanks to my complete Punk-O-Rama collection, so when I came across this at Book Off I thought I may as well buy it. This is their first album, I always like to get first albums, so that was a bonus. I have not had a good listen yet, but a quick sampling of a couple of songs suggests it is not going to disappoint.
Symbl – Serenade EP
I was thinking to myself the other day that it would be good to add some more DnB (drum and bass) to the music collection, so I sallied forth over to Bandcamp and perused their fine selection of downloads. This EP suited my wallet, and has some excellent bass, not to mention drums, so I bought it without impunity. Take a listen for yourself if you so desire… I find it toe-tappingly good.
Deafheaven – Ordinary Corrupt Human Love album (pre-order)
This is a band that I got into very recently, and when I saw the video for a song from their next album, which is brilliant stuff, I had to return to Bandcamp to pre-order it. The song from aforementioned video is the only song available for download at the moment, with the rest being released on July 13th. But, even just the one song is worth the $8 I virtually plonked down for this. A warning though, it is probably not to everyone’s tastes, it is a bit noisy you see.
