Gigs: Not been to many gigs and not seen any amazing gigs this month - tho I am seeing Vuk tonight http://www.myspace.com/vukmusic and Gaga on Saturday!
Albums: Really liking the Pantha Du Prince album http://drwndnsnd.com/~cw4GBx - tis a mixture of quiet pulsing minimal techno, wind chimes and a little bit of glo-fi... Mostly been listening to the Jonsi and Broken Bells records but they're not out for a bit and the Blood Red Shoes and Frightened Rabbit records which are out next week!
Songs: Liars 'Scissors' but apart from that, not much. Weirdly I've not really found much this month, but then I've not really been trying as I've spent a lot of time delving back and listening to Bowie 'Low', Motown compilations, Laura Nyro and lots of Eno. I guess I'm trying to set benchmarks as I'm considering restarting the label and figuring out if there's a new business model. More news soon.
Thread: This was really eye-opening and touching, thank you all http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4246972
