Songs for Beginners

My blog buddy Katie has decided to start up her own music blog (Songs for Beginners) which is very exciting. Katie already has an excellent blog full of astute and heartfelt writing about film, music and life. As such, I'm real happy she's going to dedicate her talents to writing about music. Check it out here.

BTW Katie, I need to return your Magnetic Fields record.



  1. Wow! Thanks for the plug JH! Goodness. I'm blushing.
    I better get my act together and start generating some content. (On a friend's advice I am starting with the 33 1/3 book series. With 18 hours of flying ahead of me now seems like the time to get stuck in.)

    Hope you weren't too sad last night on your way past the Enmore.

    PS. You can hold onto Stephin until I get back if you like? Have you read the booklet?

  2. PPS. Thanks for posting that clip. Gorgeousness! Love the grade - it looks like it's been dusted in cocoa. And the song... you can hear every instrument in the mix. I love a simple clip shot and edited well where you can see what you're hearing. Great find, Jon.

  3. My pleasure - you're a great writer. I'm struggling because I've challenged myself to write something about music every day for six months and as you can probably tell, sometimes the content is rushed, poorly conceived or just plain stupid. That's ok though - I'm enjoying the process and discipline of it.

  4. Not at all. I am in awe of your prolificness. I'm lucky to churn out a post one a month. I thought it was just a happy coincidence that there was an update on your blog every day (I feel more naive than ICP).
