Artist/Article Index

You can find every artist I’ve written about since 2018 on this page. The blog started as a 19 year old’s journey in finding and discovering Punk, and these articles can be found in the 2018-19 section. At the bottom of the page, there is a short-lived and hardly read blog I started in early 2020 called 2019 Unwrapped, which was a response to my failure to listen to new music in 2019 as evidenced by my Spotify Wrapped playlist for that year.

After a hiatus from Oh! Blogger! between mid-2019 to late-2020, I returned to the blog to write about a wider variety of genres and more current artists, with newer material being available in the 2020 section.

Have a trawl through, re-discover and discover beautiful sounds, and thanks for reading.

‘It’s Monday’ Playlists

Named after a line from the David Bowie track ‘Joe The Lion’ (and published every Monday, obviously), this is a selection of five songs from artists of past and present posted every week. If you’re looking for new sounds or a reacquainting with old, this is the perfect place to start.

You can follow the ‘It’s Monday Forever’ playlist to access every track featured in the series all in one place.

Other Blogs

Early in 2020 I started a blog called 2019 Unwrapped, which looked at the releases of 2019 as I had totally failed to follow any developments in new music the previous year. It was short-lived due to an extreme lack of reading, but you can find it here!

Definitely a good place to acquaint yourself with current sounds, albeit not a huge selection…
