OCTOBER! The month that was. October actually started out super busy for me but then just completely died down over the past two weeks or so and I unfortunately missed a load of stuff last weekend because I was ill *sad face*. A thread running through all of my ICYMIs this month has been my growing obsession with podcasts. Podcasts of varying genres, a lot of Serial based things as well as gaming things and a couple of music ones. So that's where a lot of my time has been spent this month and as a result of that I've paid a lot less attention to the PLETHORA of albums released over the past few weeks. I will definitely attempt to do better in November.
Check that out for a weird as fuck bunch of releases that I enjoyed this month.
Fightstar released their much anticipated comeback album Behind The Devil's Back this month and to be honest I thought that it was a pretty average rock/post-hardcode/whatever genre you want to call it, but I think this track, 'Sink With The Snakes' is absolutely incredible and is without a doubt up there with the best songs the band have written.
I have done pretty much nothing this month other than preach about HOW EXCELLENT the new Frankmusik album, For You, is. It has accompanied me pretty much everywhere that podcasts haven't and for that I can only be eternally grateful. I could probably listen to 'I Remember' on repeat for days.
Favourite song of the entire month I think? I may have even listened to it more than Frankmusik's 'I Remember'... I'm not really sure of the exact statistics. 'Soho Knights' has actually been on Leks Rivers' Soundcloud for ages but everything's better when it has a video right? And this video is really cool. The actual concept is completely lost on me because... well because it is, but the bottom line is, it looks super rad.
The most beautifullest song that happened this month comes courtesy of Australian MDWS and the absolutely stunning 'Heartbreak'. I could probably spend an entire 24 hours locked in a dark room doing nothing but crying to this song. I don't know what that says about my emotional stability but I know it means that 'Heartbreak' is absolutely amazing.
What’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Got To Do With It?
I wrote a kind of review of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 because everybody else was and I wanted to too for reasons that become super apparent if you give this a little read.
Press To Meco - The Lost Interview
Way back at Hevy Fest I interviewed Press To Meco and I finally got around to putting that up the other week, there are some funny bits, it would be cool if you checked it out.

Pigeons and Planes posted an article last week that pretty much every blogger I follow shared. It's an interesting read.The second to last paragraph reiterates something I blogged 9 months ago and is also the truest thing I ever read. https://t.co/acHx7Qr8jL— WhatIfIHadAMusicBlog (@WIIHAMB) October 21, 2015
