Indie Music Hour with DJ HotJack

A regular journey around the music scene

Sorry I deserted you! Anyone still following?

Wow – is it really 9 months since I updated the blog?

My humble apologies. Life got busy with Uni, socialising and other stuff.

Throw a comment next to this post if you are still following this blog and I’ll start throwing out some new recommendations. I have tons of Spotify playlists I can also share 🙂

Music Vidz – In Bloom by Nirvana

I was messing around with the cool lastfm tools over at Heat Haze and I decided to see what unscrobbled tracks it’d recommend. Turns out I had never scrobbled this great track!

Music Vidz – Becky by Be Your Own Pet

This is by no means new but I stumbled across this High Quality (remember to change to HQ in Youtube) and uncensored version. I’ve never been a teenage girl or killed anyone but I think this track captures it pretty well.
