Boggy's Music of the Month

I have been feeling a bit out of it recently, both posting-wise and music -wise, so I have resolved to do something about it.

The thing has got me out of touch with current music is a lack of a conduit for news and new bands. I used to listen to XFM, then I moved and the hill behind me blocks their signal (yes, I know I there's an online stream, but there are other factors that are too long-winded to get into now), then MTV2 disappeared and Adam and Joe aren't on 6 Music anymore, Spotify, while certainly like crack to me in other ways, wasn't getting me into anything new, so I have resolved to look at the NME website every day and listen to their radio station as much as I can. Thus, in the last month I have made tons of discoveries!

I propose then, I will make a weekly post of all the new things I like! (We'll see). These might not be all new songs, but they are new to me, that's what counts, as you will see. I also have no idea with some of them how popular or obscure they are, they could all be number ones for all I know (though I think a few are unsigned/unreleased yet).

First though I have to play catch with my finds for the last month:

The Heartbreakers - Delay, Delay ( my current earworm). I hear a lot of Lloyd Cole, The Smiths and Edwyn Collins in this. Perhaps a bit of Cast? Very retro anyway.

Then last night I was getting very into this old Siouxsie B-side. It's obviously an old song, even old to me, but I never really liked it all that much because I thought the beginning was so weak I never bothered with the rest, but it's obviously found it's moment with me at last. I am ashamed it has taken me so long:

Churches - Lies.

That song I think will be the sound of my summer, along with this one. Crystallized by Melody's Echo Chamber

Breton - Foam (this really reminds me of someone, but I can't place it)

Band of Skulls - Bruises

Savages (I love this band, though I can only find three songs)

City's Full


Then to finish, I have fallen in love with GHXST in the last three days,devouring every track I can get my grubby mitts on. Doomy incoherent mumbling into a wall of guitars? Deth Grunge? Cool girl singer? I am so there! Is everyone listening to GHXST? Am I late to this party? Why did no one tell me????

GHXST should do the soundtrack to the new Suspiria re-make (even if the idea is sacrilege).

Black Camaro


Hopefully, I will be into something totally different next week.
