I feel like I have discovered so much good music this month and also revisited some old favourites. I went to two concerts this month, ‘Taking Back Sunday‘ and ‘Pinegrove‘. I enjoyed them both so much, they’ve definitely made me excited for the concerts to come.
The Amazons were supporting Jimmy Eat World when I saw them back in November. I regret not paying more attention to this band. They’re getting big! I recently listened to them on Spotify and became addicted to two of their singles.
In My Mind – That guitar at the beginning is just so cool, it also makes you feel cool. And when they repeat, “Baby in my mind” – it’s so catchy. Also, I’ve gone on about it before but Matt’s hair is so nice!
Ultraviolet – This song has a really uplifting sound, and I love the way Matt sings the chorus.
Frank Iero and the Patience
World Destroyer – Frank opened up for ‘Taking Back Sunday‘ with this brilliant song. I love how loud it is, I love the sound of drums and Frank’s aggressive? vocals and how they vary throughout the song.
Discovered Pinegrove when Andrew from Basement covered their song, ‘Problems‘. Evan’s voice is really emotional and beautiful. Their music just reminds me of summer. Delightful!
Aphasia – such a pretty song!

Placebo posted about this new special edition box in the Summer, 2016. I was immediately on this! – even though I didn’t even have a record player at the time. I pre-ordered the black vinyl box set signed by Brian and Stefan. The package arrived and was just sat there for a while, unopened. I finally bought myself a record player this month (Nov) and only then did I allow myself to open up the package.
The box set is stunning and so is the music. I really like the album name, ‘A Place for Us to Dream’, feels very optimistic. The box set comes in a good quality, navy coloured box, it’s thick and feels like it is lined with some sort of fabric-like material.
In the box there’s a 24 page book with images of the band spanning their 20 year career. Brian is on the front of the booklet, whilst Stefan is on the back. I’m so lucky to get my hands on the signed version. So happy about that!! I really love the purple colours, cosmic feel and the silver sparkles.

It was a busy day for me, I had to give a presentation about tuberculosis at 9am for one of my uni modules and then I spent the day in labs doing my final year project. I finished at 6pm and got the bus down to Gorilla.
I was maybe a bit eager haha. Doors opened at 6:30pm – I got there around 6:30pm. There was 2 girls in front of me. And a guy in front as well. I bought my ticket via DICE, so I got my e-ticket scanned via the app and I got my hand stamped. I picked a spot quite close to the front and to the right. I waited for ages, on my own as I’d come alone. The wait felt sooo long.

I’m in love with this song! Makes me feel so positive!
It has so many layers and Jamie’s voice is great.
Can’t believe this song came out 6 years ago!
I wonder when he’s going to release an new album? ^^
