Hello loyal reader (singular). Yep it’s just you and me pal. You’re the only one who reads this, which reminds me: umm what is wrong with you?
Anyways, you’ve probably noticed that the layout for the top ten has changed, yet again. Well how do you like it? Not bad huh? Especially considering I haven’t a single clue how to do the internet. I’m pretty sure it’s going to stay like this from now on. Unless by next month I can’t remember how I did it, and that’s actually a real concern for me. This is really complicated shit guys. I mean guy.
April has been, for me personally, maybe the most impressive month of new music I’ve seen since I started this blog exactly 3 years ago. (Yes that’s right, it’s the 3 year anniversary. Thanks for remembering!) I had nearly 30 albums this month that I wanted to put in the top ten. It was really difficult to narrow it down to this group and I’m not sure if I made the right decisions so, please please please have a look through the SCRAP HEAP. There is a shit-heap of incredible releases in there that deserve to be heard. I’ll also do my best to get them posted on my twitter account @SteveDoesnt.
The way things are going, I’m thinking May will be another monster month, but now that I said that, it probably wont be so fuck May! Seriously though, there is a lot of music being made right now. Maybe more than ever before, given the fact that this is the first time the world has been quarantined with the ability to record music at home. These are truly unparalleled times. Someday we’ll look back on this and be like “man that was so covid”. It’s my belief that in the future the word “covid” will become and adjective.
