Music Eyz Podcast 01
How you find out about new tunes is a mindset. You can be either passive about it and give in to being fed tunes by your local or national radio stations only or you can go looking for them yourself. I choose the latter and damn have I found some good tunes out there, for me that is. It’s not about listening to what everyone else is listening to, it’s about listening to what you like and no one can tell you what to like.
We’re going to give this podcast thing a go. Here are some of the bands that turned our heads in 2014 and heading into 2015 are still grabbing our attention with their craftsmanship as musicians.
