Blog 42 – New Music: October 2016

The Georgia Flood

Here’s a band from Atlanta, who remind me of the first time I heard Cage The Elephant. They’ve posted a few tunes up, but this little whistling number is the catchiest by far. Check out ‘Whistle King’

Maggie Rogers

This young lady is just 22 years old. Growing up on a farm in Maryland, the first instrument she picked up to learn was the harp. She studied at the Clive Davis Institute in New York, and currently lives in Brooklyn. She’s already on course for 20,000,000 streams of this track at time of writing. And her first UK show old out in less than a day. ‘Alaska’ is BIG.


Let’s be honest this is a rather personal blog. I post new bands/artists I like. For a bit of fun. BUT i’m also posting this band because I know a lot of Portuguese people listen to the show. Radio X is kind of a big deal is Lisbon for some reason. So here’s a psych band based in Portugal that have made a real jam. ‘Juniper’ is here!


It’s almost that time of year again, where thin slivers of facial fuzz appear on the top lip of men around the world. For many years, it was hard to tell whether or not this was just a bold fashion statement made by the young trendies of Shoreditch, Silverlake and Brooklyn. However, with the rising popularity of a November tash, it’s become quite clear that anyone growing a mo pre-xmas, is probably doing it to raise awareness of MOVEMBER. It’s the only global campaign that aims to raise awareness around the issues that cause young men to die too young. From Cancer, to mental health, their aim is simple: STOP MEN DYING YOUNG. And you don’t have to grow a mo to get involved. Organise an event, put on a party, do anything that helps get the message out there. Dan will be getting involved in physical challenges and DJ sets throughout Movember 2016. Check out their site for more info:
