If you caught the recap I linked just then, you’ll notice that I started the last instalment of these features (see; my insisting you listen to my opinions for the benefit of your own), with an apology for it having-been-a-long-time-since-I-had-prior-forced-myself-upon-you-with-new-things-to-listen-to. Something you’ll note that, in a roundabout way, I am doing again here. So, sorry for the absenteeism and sorry for repeating material – you deserver better.
Here I am though, with a new batch of bands, singer-songwriters, artists, etc. whatever, for you to enjoy. Due to my not being around much, I actually have quite the backlog of things you really should be listening to (right now!), and for this reason I’m going to be a bit more frequent with my pestering you now, by way of apology; I know I didn’t make your birthday, and I missed your big game/dance recital/spelling bee/other American cliché despite my being Welsh, but I swear, things are going to be different now. Me and your ‘mom’ are getting on a lot better now, and I’m unemployed (and between years in university); I’ve got all the time in the world for you.
Anyway, in no particular order, enjoy with open minds and ears.
