White Noys

31 (noisy) songs

“A couple of times a year I make myself a tape to play in the car, a tape full of all the new songs I’ve loved over the previous few months, and every time I finish one I can’t believe that there’ll be another. Yet there always is, and I can’t wait for the next one; you need only a few hundred more things like that, and you’ve got a life worth living”.

Nick Hornby, from 31 Songs

“All You Need” by Snuff

Subtitle: It’s the little things.

Subtitle: an album that was necessary to me.

I was really missing a nice, satisfying pop album like this one. One that is flowing so effortlessly through my ears and into my brain, from beginning to end. This is an album that celebrates music itself and perhaps I will “consume” it quickly. But that’s just how pop is and I need it…
