We are so excited to announce that Vapour Trail will host a BlueJay session on Thursday 14th December at 7pm!
Vapour Trail is a blog dedicated to discussing music and artists, covering a wide range of genres. They discuss the music that has had an impact on them, as well as promoting new and upcoming performers. Music blogs are a great way to discover new music or promote your own!
Read on to discover more about what Vapour Trail do in our exclusive interview.
Music is everything, a constant soundtrack to light up an otherwise drab life.
I think personally David Bowie is the biggest influence on my life. A beautiful freak, unafraid to constantly bend any expectations cast upon him.
I’m also very much influenced by other people unafraid to be weird, like Sparks, Sun Ra and Julian Cope.
I make a bit of electronic music, but I’m not ready for it to see the light of day.
Vapour Trail is a site that combines lots of old, overlooked music, and the brightest new guitar music. Not restricted to one genre, simply anything that excites me goes up on the site.
We’ve got no room for mediocrity. Our deputy editor is called Aimee and she likes a lot more electronic stuff, so there’s always a good mix.
Anything that gets me excited goes on the site, be it a garage rock group, an experimental pop artist, or a disco producer.
You’ll be subject to all of these should you choose to tune into the BlueJay sessions, and so much more.
It’s difficult, but I think the way to go about it is tell the truth all the time. If you only get excited about good things, when you get excited, someone will believe you love it. Quality control is important.
Madonnatron are really great, they were our album of the year, and we also interviewed them, and we’re also chuffed to have interviewed shoegaze legends Ride and Curve as well this year.
A number of other favourites at the moment include HMLTD, Starcrawler, Hotel Lux, Wolfgang Tilmans and Baxter Dury.
A mix of the old and new, newbies that make your pulse race and lost classics that make your heart pulsate.
Expect good tunes, and a lot of anecdotes that aren’t as funny as we think they are. I won’t tell you just what we’ll spin, you’ll have to tune in to hear.
We’ve got about 50% new and 50% old artists. The first show features Slick Rick, Starcrawler and Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft.
