Album Review: Once, Or Twice

OK, now I can talk about the free stuff. Actually, not yet. First, a little background. This is a review of the newest album by a terrific artist named Julia Barry. She was the SoundClouder of the Day on SoundCloud a month or two ago (where SoundCloud spotlights various users & artists for a day),…

Song of the Day: “Do You Love Me”

Big, exciting things are afoot on Harmony Avenue! Starting tonight. But not yet. First, another lovely song of the day called… “Do You Love Me” by Guster! You know those ads on the side of Facebook? Yeah, they’re mostly annoying. But sometimes there’s some good ones. There are occasionally ads so painfully awkward they’re great…

Sketches: Country Strong

Hi there! Once again, there’s been a bit of a gap between my last post and…now. Here’s another new feature…and this is one kind of without much bells and whistles. It’s where I want to basically just write. About a music-related topic that’s on my mind. For fun. And I might ramble. But with good…

Song of the Day: “Harry Patch (In Memory Of)”

Happy Veterans/Remembrance Day, everyone. I’d like to share a haunting, beautiful tune today that fits this occasion rather well… “Harry Patch (In Memory Of)” by Radiohead. This song was released last August as a charity single (proceeds all go to the Royal British Legion) in tribute to Harry Patch, the last surviving trench fighter in…

Let’s Play The Song Shuffle Game…

Here I am! With a post later tonight like I promised. (Sorry, but I have to celebrate the little things sometimes. :)) Here’s where things get a little experimental. (And possibly reminiscent of Facebook?) Right now, I’m going to put my iTunes on shuffle…and write down (or rather, type) 10 songs. And then I’m going…

Artist Spotlight: Lucy Schwartz

Howdy all! Well, it’s been six days since I last posted. It’s not as if this blog was empty otherwise, but I was intending to post regularly…so sorry about that. I shall do better in the future. Anyways, as promised, here’s another wonderful artist spotlight. (Later today I’ll also be introducing another new blog feature,…

Song of the Day: “Goodbye England (Covered In Snow)”

Before I get into this post, let’s all take a moment to banish the procrastination/other stuff that has kept me from posting another Artist Spotlight since Thursday. Banish! There. That should do it. How about I post it tomorrow, and give y’all another Song of the Day for now? Good? Good. Now to the song……

Song of the Day: “Satellite”

I haven’t posted since Thursday! (Insert panicked shriek here.) The trusty old (well, older than anything else on this blog) Artist Spotlight feature will return tomorrow. As for now, here’s another new feature…the Song of the Day. So what will it be like? First off, it probably won’t be every day, because although I definitely…
