I have this tumblr for several weeks now, but most of you followers/readers are only here for about a week, thanks to my post on the new Eddie Vedder track.
I have usually 10-15 visits a day here (more on my main website, but not much), and it soared to over 4,000 for two consecutive days. Obviously, it’s going down now, but it was nice while it lasted + it got me quite a lot of new followers, who may wanna get an introduction of what I’m doing here.
First of all, this tumblr started in French, as you can see from some pages not in English. Why? Not only because ‘m French-speaking, but mostly because my website, Music Box, is in French. So I felt like continuing that way. But after a short while, I decided to switch to English, just because I wanted it ;-)
I may start writing reviews in English, as requested by some of you here and on my Facebook page. There’s more people who understand English than French anyway. And I think I like writing in English more than in French.
I’ll try to regulary post music and various kind of music-related stuff, just take a look at what I posted to have an idea of what to expect.
Also, I reblogged a picture about a week ago, about donating money to quake/tsunami victims in Japan. It was supposed to be 1 cent/reblog, etc etc. Now, I’m poor, but this was enough + I don’t wanna do the math ;-)
So thanks to everyone who reblogged and loved the post and the new followers, I’ll be donating 20€ at the end of the month + all my Flattr revenue. Not much, I know, but it’s all I can at the moment.
Anyway, enough for now, and a heartfelt welcome to my Tumblr and other webpages.
I have no info about the single, but Ed said at a live show a couple of days ago that the album is out in June. I’ll keep you posted ;-)
Today may be The King of Limbs’ day, but Yuck’s first album, released next Monday, is an early album of the year contender. But that’s because the album, just like me, is a child of the 90s.
The band is kind enough to host a stream on Soundcloud, so listen and then go buy it because it’s fucking great.
We (I) kinda forgot about them, but clumsily-named Scottish post-shoegazers (yeah, whatever) Glasvegas released a pretty good debut album three years ago. The follow-up is ready, is produced by 90s control button legend Flood and is out on April 3rd.
It looks like they’ve taken MIA’s cue for weird punctuation : it’s called EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \, cos, yknow, arrows going up for euphoria and down for heartbreak. Deep and stuff.
First track’s here below, and it expands their sound while still keeping some sort of familiarity. Still no clue what he’s singing though.
