Where Is My Muse?

“Where Is My Muse” is my 95th blog post in this calendar year, Twenty Twenty-one. It has been a very productive year with a tonne of great music that inspired me to write and hopefully leads others to enjoy this music as much as I have.

Today is October 28, and my Muse has abandoned me! Where, oh where, can my Muse be hiding. I have been listening to wonderful music that lifts my spirits and riding in that heady atmosphere; I sit at my keyboard and …nothing.

My Muse has abandoned me. I sit alone at the keyboard with fantastic music and scintillating lyrics that lift me and cause my spirit to soar, but my fingers are sitting idle. What has happened? I love the music that has landed in my inbox with the intent of my writing about it. But nothing arrives beyond my good intentions.

Dubliner CAT DOWLING also presents her ‘Animals’ single ahead of her new album (by the same name), released on November 12 via FIFA Records– this is a song about that beautiful part inside the human make-up that can’t ever and should never be tamed. The accompanying animated video by MARC CORRIGAN brilliantly reflects this song of movement, sensuality, wildness, love and freedom.

flora cash have released their third album, our generation. The lyrics are rooted in the promise each generation makes to the next that incredible things are possible. 

our generation is a message by and for a generation of kids who know what it means

to be a refugee.

to grow up with a dad in prison.

to struggle with mental health

to experience heartbreak

to hide their true identity from the world

to seek adventure and self-realization

to meet their soul mate

to believe in a potential few yet see

and in the final analysis, our generation is a record for all those who know what it means to pursue a dream even when the world tells them no.

Manchester indie rock postpunk outfit INCA BABIES will release their 8th studio album’ Swamp Street Soul,’ produced by SIMON ‘DING’ ARCHER (The Fall, PJ Harvey), on November 23. Today they present the lead track ‘Walk In The Park.’ Since 1983, they’ve been a vibrant part of Britain’s post-punk/deathrock scene, touring and releasing many albums, ranking in the UK Indie Charts and recording four sessions for BBC’s John Peel show before splitting up. Now reformed, today Inca Babies comprises HARRY STAFFORD, bassist VINCE HUNT (A Witness, Blue Orchids) and ROB HAYNES (The Membranes, Goldblade).

I listened to this record over and over, and each listen provided me with fresh sounds. I kept thinking I could hear bits and bites of other bands, but it never coalesced into a name, so I came away feeling like I had listened to a breath of fresh air.

The Kundalini Genie released their album Half In, Half Out on November 12 via OX4 Sound.

Emerging from the nether regions of Glasgow, The Kundalini Genie has been blowing minds globally with music characterized by droning hypnotic fuzz rock, 60’s British Invasion-inspired melodies, transcendental sitar, and dreamy, spaced-out soundscapes.

Their sonic journey ranges across the spectrum of their musical influences – The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Spiritualized, The Dandy Warhols, The Warlocks, The Beatles, The 13th Floor Elevators, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Black Ryder and Black Market Karma.

I would add Lou Reid and The Velvet Underground. This band blazes with old-school psychedelic rock and roll. A must-listen for year-end best-of lists.
