New Band of the Month: December – Reflection

For the last month of 2012 (and my last of this feature), I selected one of the biggest selling pop artists of all time, ABBA (read my initial thoughts here). Have I given in to the worldwide phenomenon? Nope. Look, I get it. ABBA wrote some very catchy songs and I can see why some … Continue reading New Band of the Month: December – Reflection

New Band of the Month: December – ABBA

Every month this year, I'm dedicating myself to getting into a new band.  By 'new band', what I really mean is an old band who I've known of for awhile but have for one reason or another never checked out.  Maybe they were a genre I wasn't into, maybe they were the favorite band of … Continue reading New Band of the Month: December – ABBA

New Band of the Month: November – Reflection

For the tenth month of the New Band feature, I selected shoegaze pioneers, My Bloody Valentine (read my initial thoughts here). Did I finally get why Loveless is held in such high regard? To truly appreciate Loveless, I think it's not as important to listen to it in the context of the year it came out … Continue reading New Band of the Month: November – Reflection

New Band of the Month: October – Reflection

For the ninth month of the New Band feature, I selected Australian metal pioneers, AC/DC (read my initial thoughts here).Was I ready to rock!? Aaaaaoooooooooooooaaaaya! I guess. Like  some of the other acts I've focused on in this feature, AC/DC is a band that has existed so long that they've amassed a back catalog I … Continue reading New Band of the Month: October – Reflection

New Band of the Month: August – Reflection

For the eight month (and final in Seattle) of the New Band feature, I selected Washington state pop rockers, The Posies (read my initial thoughts here). How did this bit of 90s nostalgia rock strike me? I've always had a soft-spot in my music-listening heart for the mid-90s pop rockers who came alive in the … Continue reading New Band of the Month: August – Reflection
