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.

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…
