A blog about great music, if you'd like me to listen to your band or you just want to give me free shit e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally music to be sent rather than just links to soundcloud as i struggle with time to do this a lot as it is.

Top 50 of 2012: No.18: And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Lost Songs (Richter Scale)
A new Trail of Dead album is rarely anything but a cause for celebration, and Lost Songs does not disappoint, the official version is a cracking album with some of their most visceral material to date, and after over 14 years together as a band it’s rare to hear such youthful exuberance still resonating through a band this far down the line. For the mentalists there’s the extra-long version which I have but is a little harder to sit the whole way through, but rest assured with tracks like ‘Open Doors’, ‘Pinhole Cameras’ and ‘Opera Obscura’ this band have lost none of their fire and ability to pen catchy tunes. So Trail Of Dead, still one of the best bands around and definitely one of the best live bands you will ever see.
