As good as a nice cup of tea, and a sit down.

Who says having too much time on your hands is bad? All hail the geeks. x

I enjoy taking on so much, but it does feel like complete chaos sometimes.

So, I've got the following on the boil at the moment: some more BBC articles, including an interview with Castrovalva next week. Contactmusic ran my piece on Leeds Festival here and my Times New Viking and Julian Plenti album reviews here and here.

You can see my scribbles on the new Health album, the Japandroids and a couple of others on contactmusic soon. I'm changing jobs and applying for a couple of placements etc. so this may well be the last time I update for a bit.

Love Love Love.

Hello once more.

I'm finally back at work after what seems like one too many festivals. Four in seven weeks is quite enough for anyone, I feel. Showers and beds are massively underrated!

I've just got back from Leeds Festival, my review of which should be in Contact Music in the next week or so. I'll post it here when it's up. My review that I did for them of Le Route Du Rock in France can be found here. LRDR was a true pleasure to cover and for those who haven't been to Brittany, I highly recommend. It's beautiful and so laid back.

Before all this and somehow wedged between all the camping, I did a placement at The Metro in London. It was only a week but I was lucky enough to get this article published (see above). It's my first in print and I don't think I could be happier about it!
So to round up; I've got a few album reviews coming out for Contact within the next couple of weeks including Simian Mobile Disco, Times New Viking and Julian Plenti (Paul Banks from Interpol). I haven't done anything for BBC Leeds in a while, mosty because I've been so busy with everything else, but I'm going to try and sort out few more articles with them in the next few weeks. Watch this space.
Thanks to everyone for the nice comments about my work, you think more of it than I do! Love From Natalie xx
