Sometimes life drags and or feels like it and sometimes it seems to speed up. The last bank holiday of the year and autumn to plan for, with all the hints of a last sunny break opportunity abound. I keep thinking about how I have missed out so much again this year but am glad of my health. I think if things ever get back to some semblance of normal I might not know what to do, could I be stuck in this eggshell life of no real plans. Adapting is the watchword for most and I agree, as I look forward to going back to gigs and maybe doing some travel again, this time with more effort I would say.

For years the music scene has tried to market new music and from that, we have had classic genres. But for a good period, they have been really drilling them down to fads. So in the chatty bit wise, I wondered, could it be a sign of getting old to get annoyed by all these music genres, and if so what ones do you detest currently and why.

This week’s music selection is yet another mixed bag of electronic-based ‘genres’, as we heard new tracks from AfterDark – Blab – Blaklight – Thought beings – THIEF – Synthetic Villains – Pulse Lab, plus loads more known and new artists to delight your ears bits.
