Posts Tagged ‘Happy New Year’

Hey everybody, so here we are again eh? Another year on the horizon and another about to be behind us. Time flies and it’s tricky to keep up. Hard to believe this Blog is just over a year old too. I had a lot of cool content within it’s short life to make it a good source for music above or way below ground. For me it’s a labor of love. It’s also tough to add pieces weekly like I had originally planned, which isn’t a bad thing, it just means I’m busy with other projects and the times that I do post make each installment that much more special. I looked back at some of the stats for this year and honestly can’t believe the amount of attention some of the installments received. So cool to see that, I’ve also gotten some really rad feedback. My intent is to keep it going and to add some more great content. I’m making a list of people I’m going to try to hit up for interviews, finally finish my TOP 100 albums list, review some more shows and just add some general rambling. Keeps my mind sharp! And finally, before I wish all of you a Happy New Year. My band, NOX CULT also had a pretty cool year and we are wrapping it up with the release of our Live EP, “Fucking Live” which just came out on Christmas. Please, if you are interested check us out and the EP. It’s a pretty bad ass recording and just a peek behind our sometimes mysterious curtain.

And so…HAPPY NEW YEAR, go forth and do good things and try to enjoy your life!

Happy New Year everybody. Thanks for checking out MUSIC-SURCIVAL-GUIDE over the last couple of months. I hope to be able to bring you a lot more musings in 2015! For my last post for the last day of 2014 I want to leave you with 2 songs…

One, appropriately enough is “New Year’s Eve” from Nina Gordon (Veruca Salt). This is from her first solo record, Tonight and the Rest Of My Life. This was the first we got from Nina after her departure from Veruca Salt in 1998. It is a fantastic record. Every song is punchy and sweet with really great lyrics.

The second, would have to be the obvious choice. The classic “New Year’s Day” by U2. They just don’t write ’em like this anymore! (Below is the video version and album version)
