#TBT: Silverchair

Silverchair is one of those bands that, until they appear on shuffle, live mostly in the back of our minds. Still, back in the early naughts, they were one of the biggest names in rock and roll.

Harry Styles’s surprising solo debut

When I started This Noise Of Mine, the focus was to write only about good music. Of course, that’s an extremely subjective standard, but the idea is to maintain that canon throughout several collaborators, and create a diverse space with lots of good music for different kinds of people and tastes. Still, I never thought to write a post about anything related to One Direction, and still, here I am. Music is here to surprise us.

In Memoriam: Chris Cornell

A talent this rare is found a handful of times in a lifetime. What Chris Cornell (1964-2017) had was a unique gift, a gift that became one of the leading voices for an entire generation. His music, his songwriting, and his passion will always be what we’ll remember him by.

Josh Tillman, AKA Father John Misty, feels the same way, and he wrote an album about all of us.

Listen To: Dia Frampton – Hope

Every once in a while, one stumbles into an inescapable piece of music. It grips itself into the back of your head and doesn’t let go, no matter the circumstances. This time, Dia Frampton is to blame, with the opening track to her sophomore album, Bruises (2017). What. A. Track.

Automaton, the new Jamiroquai album

Seven years is a long time by anyone’s standards. According to “science”, we are almost completely different people than when Rock Dust Light Star (2010) was released (joke). Seriously, though, it’s been a long time since Jamiroquai has fed us lit bass lines and sweet beats. So, do they still have it?
