Hi everyone,

This website documents what I’m listening to over the course of 2014.  My aim for this blog is to showcase my writing and offer a guide to what’s new and exciting in the world modern music (hint: I won’t be writing about any piece of music nominated for a Mercury Music Prize).


My name is Tom and I currently live in Berlin, which is a great place to live if you’re a music fan – nearly every band plays here at some point.  I play in a band called battlements.  I love all things rock – which in general can mean anything that has attitude, weirdness, swagger and tunes.  The Fall are my favourite band.  I grew up in South Wales and I love Welsh music – particularly Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, Manic Street Preachers and Datblygu.  My Lastfm profile shows what I’m currently enjoying listening to.
