Musical Tastes

Well as the darker evenings start to draw in, and the leaves are going through their Autumnal change I find myself also changing my musical tastes, looking for those deeper, warmer moments... While tripping through the internet ether looking for reviews, sites, MP3 samplers, I, from time to time, find some absolute belters, below are a list of sites, tracks, albums and blogs that, in my humble opinion, you should take notice of...
Gayngs - Reylayted (iTunes Link)
Gayngs - Reylayted (Spotify Link)
A lush, deep, slightly trippy album that keeps my ears perky and heart warm... A really complete album, each track perfectly complementing each other...
If you are looking to discover lots of folk / acoustic music then may I suggest checking this site out...
It has some pretty darn good sessions on there, all available for FREE download as 128's... Perfect for getting a taste of lots of new talent before parting your hard earned cash on their albums... Some really neat artwork throughout the site also...
For information on soul, hip hop, and R&B vibes head over to the incredible 'Put Me On It' blog it features news and reviews plus has a FREE download of lots of great music each month...
If you get chance, also check out the incredible Four Tet mix of The xx

This is truly wonderful, I really hope it gets a full release... While I am on the subject of Four Tet, Floating Points has turned in an epic mix of 'Sing', some good natured soul has added it to YouTube

NuNorthern Soul Live Audio and Video Streaming

We have always embraced technology here at NNS HQ... And last Sunday, the 3rd of October 2010 we decided to have a play about with a live streaming service called 'U Stream'...

In a nutshell it allows live audio and video streaming to the www, plus it allows users to interact with the host, that will explain why Phil seems to be staring at the screen all the time!!

Details of future events will be posted and can be viewed from the 'U Stream' section in this blog.
