This month I decided to try an experiment, I would not buy any new music for a month. A real challenge for me as I usually buy about 200 albums a year. My Twitter friends didn’t think I could do it, well, I almost did…

Talking Heads Stop Making SenseIt’s nearly the end of the month and so far I’ve only bought one CD; the excellent Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads. My Twitter fried @dancing_monk told me that my music collection was pointless without it so I caved in.

On the other hand I have picked up a few new titles to explore this month via bandcamp subscriptions and free downloads, so I’ve got some stuff to explore, here’s a breakdown of new additions. If you want to know what I think of them come and follow me on Twitter (@andylong), but please do take the time to listen to some of them if you can
