A huge thanks to the person or persons who submitted this site as one of their favourite Irish sites for this year’s Irish Web Awards in the music blog category.
As Sweet Oblivion is not in the same league as the amazingly comprehensive music sites also on the list – Harmless Noise, Nialler9, Swear I’m Not Paul, Ragged Words and State just to name a few – I’m honoured that someone even thought of me! I can’t wait to see who makes the shortlist – I’m sure the cream will rise to the top as they say. Congratulations to all who were nominated!
A special congrats to my Anti Room buddies; our humble blog has been nominated in the Best Web Publication Only category. Let’s hope we get to the shortlist!
I’ll be back with my Electric Picnic thoughts tomorrow – but here is last week’s Electric Picnic-themed Sweet Oblivion show for you to listen to. If you were there, it may bring back some great memories. If you weren’t, just picture me taking down a tent in the lashing rain at 7am in my pyjamas, wellies and a rainjacket and you won’t feel a bit sorry for yourself….enjoy the tunes!
PS The full tracklist is on the SoundCloud site here – it features Roxy Music, Janelle Monae, Tiga, Caribou, Dam Funk and more…
