Month: October 2017

Abums of the year and songs of the year

I know there’s still a month or so to go however I’m going to soon begin compiling my albums and EP’s of the year. I’ve already begun to do this for the first six months of 2017 and posted them on earlier blogs which I hope you’ve had the chance to check out.

2017 has undoubtedly proved another superb year for music across the folk, americana and alt-country genres, which are the most played types of music on the Quiet Revolution. As there are so many releases I’d consider my favourites of the year I’m going to make it one or a maximum of three longer blogs in more of a list form this time around. I will though provide a link to a track from each artist or band thus continuing with the format for the more extensive write-ups I’ve provided in previous years .

Added to this I’m going to try something new and highlight what I regard as some of the songs of the year for me. They’re going to be drawn from my favourite albums or EPs but will be those real standout songs that I’ve found myself playing on the show and at home a lot.

Keep checking back on the blog or even better just click the ‘follow’ tab in the right-hand corner of the screen on any of the pages on my website and you can then subscribe so you receive an email update which has the added advantage of keeping you fully up to speed with both playlists and blogs. You can of course unsubscribe at any time if you want to and I won’t send you any unwanted email, it’s purely a way of keeping in touch with when playlists and blogs are uploaded.
