Bobcats are fascinating people if you get to know us. We love Bob Dylan for unique style and we look up to various Dylanologists who have made themselves known for analysing Bob Dylan and giving us great reading material (please refer to my article "10 Books on Bob Dylan" for more information). With his incredibly large catalogue, it's never easy becoming a Bobcat because you are really lost of what there is to listen too—there's so much choice!
Musicians are some of the most important entertainers of the modern world. How else would we relate to someone who has expressed a story that has even a tiny amount of resemblance to our own? These latter day poets are some of the core performers of emotion, story, voice, and instrument that the world cares to distinguish. Each of them has their own stories to tell and each of their stories are completely different from the last.
Bob Dylan's Bootleg series is probably bigger than some bands entire career's worth of recordings. We aren't finished yet since we have only made it halfway through his career - we still have so many bootlegs to go (I believe). Up to now, we've got 14 volumes of pure excellence - versions of similar songs that never made it to the album, demos and short clips and even some songs that are completely new and recorded in their entirety.
The best songs for you to listen to that will motivate you to fight, move, love, and just give you inspiration are as follows:
I don’t know where I would be without my music. It’s the soundtrack to my drives, showers, sunrise gazing, etc… You get the point. Basically, I owe music a lot—from the friends it has connected me with to the hard times it has gotten me through. However, sometimes we get tired of our current playlists and need something new.
Have you ever felt like Rapunzel wondering, "When will my life begin?" Life is about taking risks that can lead to amazing changes and opportunities, but often, it's scary to leave a place where you are feeling at ease and safe. In the comfort of our own homes, we vicariously live out the stories of others in the books, shows, and movies we read and watch—but don't you think it's time to go on a journey of your own? Here are five songs from my childhood that I revisit every once in awhile when I need just that little push or reminder that adventure is always out there. But only if you dream big and take risks. Even if you are living your best life at this moment, listening to these songs will leave you feeling good. Enjoy!
Whilst the charts are full of pop songs with an EDM drop featured at some point in the song, a new wave of indie music is surging. Head on down to the institution that is the Old Blue Last in Shoreditch, or new festivals like So Young, and you'll witness the latest bands to follow in the footsteps of successes like Wolf Alice. It's sweaty and cramped establishments like this where the new revival of British alternative music is emerging, winning over the live crowds before releasing a debut. It's an exciting time for British bands, and here are five that you'll want to get listening to.
With a versatile music taste comes plenty looks of confusion when you tell people who you went to see live and they've never heard of them. So here is a small list of some bands and artists that you guys should definitely check out.
With so much music out there that I would not have discovered if it wasn't for the likes of YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music, I don't know where my life would be without them. Some of the acts I've listed I've known since I was a child, but there are also some I've discovered on the internet. I've been to lots of concerts, gigs, and a few festivals over the years and I hope to go to some more. Here's a list of bands that I really want to see live and are, as far as I know, still musically active as of writing this article in 2019.
In today's age of global communication, new levels of artistic collaboration and influence are possible. With the spread of more artistic content over the internet, music is becoming more eclectic and evolving at a rapid pace. Accordingly, no form of music has evolved or spread as rapidly as EDM and other synthesizer-based music—from the simpler times of synth pop all the way to heavier, more aggressive, modern genres like future bass and other types of bass music. Also, with the influence of the internet, genres like dubstep have gained previously unfathomed mainstream exposure and immense popularity over the past decade or so, with special thanks to artists like Skrillex. With the widespread popularity of the genre, artists have drawn in influence from other non-EDM genres to make their music even more unique.
I'm from the UK, and a lot of the time I can get really sick of English music, there I said it. These artists have become some of my favourites over the past year, and I think they all have exciting things to come in 2019.
