Anaïs Mitchell - Hadestown

Of all the albums I consider not getting enough praise in musical world Hadestown has to be really high up on the list. As one of my favorite albums from the past decade it seems to create an amazing, engaging story whilst making sure that listeners are going to enjoy the sound presented to them, which is not an easy task considering the sheer amount of people working on this record (Around 30!). Creating a work this cohesive with limitless possibilities of conflicts between the artists deserves lots of praise.

Album presents a modernized version of myth about story of Orpheus and Eurydice, in it he underworld is presented as industrial empire ruled with iron fist by Hades. People are brainwashed into adoring their king and follow his every order without and thought, endlessly working in the mines. LP kicks off with a song emphasizing sweet and unconditional love between the two lovers, it definitely feels like the center point of album. Even though they both live in world troubled b…

Candy Claws - Ceres & Calypso in the Deep Time

Long ago in the deep time Ceres and Calypso were traversing through barren wasteland of a planet built of a singular land mass, surrounded by waters. At first it seems like imagined, fantasy world with two heroines but Candy Claws decided to surprise their listeners and present us with a story of a Seal and a Girl set in Mesozoic era, traveling and experiencing beauties of Earth from millions of years ago. I find the concept of this LP intriguing, captivating and, most importantly, tremendously original. 
Album kicks off with one of the denser songs, giving listener a taste of what is about to come and also giving a hint of what the presented world actually can be. Heavy, distorted sound carries all through the record, as usual for pieces of music related to dream pop genre. The melodies can be overwhelming at times, making it difficult to figure out what exact instruments are playing or even what are the vocalists trying to present. This can put off people who enjoy their lyrics but…

Avantdale Bowling Club - Self Titled

Avantdale Bowling Club is a New Zealand based jazz hip-hop music group that has released their debut album last year and with that record have shown a lot of skill, musicianship and joined the group of artists that I am going to eagerly support and praise. This album came out without me hearing about any of the bands members before but they hit a certain niche of jazz infused rap that I absolutely love, Tom Scott's dense and emotional lyrics speak to me on many levels and I appreciate how personal it gets.

The record kicks off with my personal favourite of entire LP, an absolute highlight - "Years Gone By". It is sort of a rewind of the artists life, a look into past that also seems to be a prevailing theme in the album. Tom mentions pleasant things that belong to being a child like playing video games - Mario or Ocarina of Time, but over time a lot of troubling events happen. He notices his father being abusive towards family members and eventually ending up in jail and…

Welcome to my blog!

This is going to be a blog mostly revolving around music and news related ot it. What I really want to focus on is a weekly review of an album I have heard recently and want to share my thoughts and opinions on with you guys. What I hope to achieve is showing people some artists that are worth listening to while not being the most well-known, top of the charts musicians, or express my feelings on some LPs that I don't think are worth anyone's time.


A little bit of introduction about me: I am from Poland, born in 1997, currently studying at University in Toruń. I have been listening to music since I was little but for past few years it has become a really important part of my life, every day involves listening to some tunes. I am not going to list my favourite artists or genres, I enjoy a wide variety of music spectrums and there are very few genres I generally dislike but feel free to message me about music recommendations or general questions about music I like. I will answer …
