Alright, not completely. But hear me out.
Nearly 8 months since an update here. And not for lack of reason, although it might just sound like an excuse at this point.
A lot has happened since I put up the top 10 list for 2013. The blog was started as a way for me to keep track of all the music I listen to, when I took it upon myself to check out at least 5 new albums a week. Since then, my taste in music has taken a form of its own. New genres were explored, plethora of discographies were downloaded. At the moment, chiptune is easily the best thing I’ve ever heard so far. This coming from a guy who was averse to electronic music a few years ago.
Its become a lot harder as a result to document all the music I’m listening to, and make a narrative around that which makes for good reading. Lets face it, plain ol’ reviews dont cut it anymore. An album is either great on first listen, or you’d absolutely hate it. Few people have figured out the art of letting something grow on you.
A change is needed, and I’m yet to figure out what. And its not something that I can fix with a new theme (albeit I absolutely love this one).
Rest assured, the blog is still alive. Only going through a phase that’s characteristic of most youths who go through an early life crisis when they hit 25, though definitely not as dramatic.
Let me know. What is it that you’d like to see on here? Lists? Clickbait articles? More Indian bands? More Sceptre bashing?
I’m all ears. I’m definitely retiring the album review format at this point, and posts here from now on would be a bit more argumentative. Here’s to (hopefully) better material in the future.
