2018 Launch – Musical Meanderings 4th January 2018

A dual celebration – remembering highlights of 2017 and looking forward to what’s ahead in 2018.

Enjoying the new music I discovered, such as the explorations of the post rock and doom metal genres, such as Tempus and Fjord, and also highlighting my song of the year- Pallbearer- A Plea For Understanding and my album of the year- 1968 – Fortuna Havana.

Also looking ahead to upcoming gigs in 2018, such as Myrkur, Crowbar and Obituary.

I looked at what I learned about the variations in forms of expression in artists such as Dorthia Cottrell– I played a song from her solo project along with her fronting doom metal band Windhand. Similarly, I discovered an artist from Denmark- Amelia Bruun who has done the same. I played a song of hers, then from her other more well known project- Myrkur from the new album Mareidt which she is promoting during her current tour. She is playing in Bethnal Green on the 22nd.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are ready for a fantastic 2018! Here’s to all the music we will be enjoying.
