From these distractions...

I really hope that you are all well.

As a distraction, I've turned back to music reviewing/music feature writing for a bit.

In case you are looking for a distraction too, Here are a few recent pieces I’ve written for the music site Louder Than War:


The power of music in difficult times

Why I think Menswe@r were alright

Album reviews

DJ Sadow's Our Pathetic Age

El Goodo's debut album El Goodo

Single reviews

The Spitfires’ (Just Won't) Keep Me Down

Laundromat's Slow Clap

Tim Burgess' The Mall

I put this newsletter on hiatus when this all started. I’ve been focusing on my students, teaching and department administration things. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get back to it soon.

In the meantime, I'm sending you very best wishes.
