Every month I write a short post with some of the music that I’ve been into during that month. Here is November’s jam…
I’m really late to the party with this band but stumbled across their new song ‘Sick of It’ on YouTube a month or so ago, streamed their album ‘Rise’ and then ordered the deluxe edition.
It arrive a couple of weeks back and is an incredible rock album which I’ve been playing constantly. There’s not a single bad track on the album and the mix of male and female vocals is really nice for a heavy rock album.
Five Iron Frenzy
Two years ago I pledged to help Five Iron Frenzy record their first new record since they broke up 10 years ago…two weeks ago I got to download their new album ‘Engine of a Million Plots’ and a few days ago the CD arrived (along with the blue ‘Five Iron Frenzy’ comb!).
The new record has a feel similar to their Electric Boogalo album and is a really good album which stays true to the band at the same time as showing growth (and better production)
Katy Perry is one of my guilty pleasures, her album ‘Teenage Dream’ is an incredible pop album and only really has one track on I don’t like (Peacock).
Katy’s new album ‘Prism’ is one which I’ve eagerly anticipated and have spent a while listening to it this month. Whereas ‘Teenage Dream’ was instantly likeable ‘Prism’ is a grower and takes a bit of getting into.
Prism feels more grown up and doesn’t blast you with the amount of ‘pop-hits’ that ‘Teenage Dream’ did but is still a good album which I’ve been really enjoying.

Here’s a little YouTube playlist I’ve put together of some of the songs I’ve been enjoying
