Hope you had a nice break during the holiday season and have a great 2022.
I’ll be back with more music gems soon but, in the meantime, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve done a bit of housecleaning with most of my mixtapes. I have created separate mixtapes containing the songs featured here during last year and removed them (well, all but the last 5 or 6 ones) from the main mixtapes. I did the same last year too but didn’t announce it.
So, if you want to take a stroll down memory lane and listen again to the talented artists and great songs featured here during 2021 (or even 2020), just take a look at the Mixtapes section here.
I started this blog during the early stages of the pandemic when I found myself with some extra time due to not having to spend time commuting, among other things. More than one year later, not only are things starting to go back to some resemblance of normality, but my personal circumstances have changed a little bit (for example, I started a new job this month) and will continue to change even further in the not so distant future, which means that I’m having less and less time to keep updating this website the way I’ve been doing it so far. I don’t want to stop or shut this site down (although it remains a possibility for next year), so what I have decided to do in order to save time is to change the format of the majority of new posts.
From now on, most posts will include only basic information about the song and the artist being featured, not a writeup with some context and my opinion of the track. I will still write that from time to time on select entries if I find myself with enough spare time, but it won’t be the norm. This does not apply to songs currently in my queue. Just those I add after today.
I’ve been dying to feature one of my favorite alternative rock bands here on T.A.M., but they are so underrated/overlooked that their songs are not even available on Spotify/Apple Music (it looks like one of the albums is available in the US).
Fortunately, the fellow blogger behind the great music blog: Eclectic Music Lover (which I visit regularly since I discovered it and highly recommend) let me write a guest post about this band, Radford. Check it out and the rest of EML’s entries as well. You will find great music and terrific articles!
