Big News! Some of you have noticed that I haven’t been posting here as often as I used to, and there’s good reason for it. Real world work aside, I was recently approached by another blog to be their music editor. The site is www.BlurredCulture.com and I’m excited for the transition.

Thank you all for your support, and keep music in your heart. Cheers!
