Troika - a new music podcast

Hello, peoples of the internets! Troika* is a new, low-key, music podcast from Hicksdesign.

The idea is that I’ll present a set of just three songs, connected by some sort of link – either by genre, artist, songs that were important to a particular time in my life or just some other odd notion that happens to take my fancy. Sometimes I might have guests on board to choose their trio of music. Talking from me will be minimal – just a short introduction, and then the music! I have several episodes planned, and the first one is recorded and ready for listening.

I won’t be making a seperate website for Troika, or setting up its own Twitter/Facebook/whatever page as that would only add more work for me to upkeep, and I want to keep this low-friction as possible and a part of the Journal. So episodes will be posted here, and you can subscribe to Troika via RSS in whatever podcast app you prefer.

*The name comes from a Russian word that describes a configuration of three horses abreast, usually pulling a sleigh. Like so…

Hickensian's Year of Music 2014

If you’ve got Spotify, a spare three hours and a desire to know what music has floated my boat this year, here’s my end of year list! With a few exceptions (such as Slowdive, in honour of their reunion), it’s music released in 2014, and features Phantogram, I Break Horses, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Purity Ring, Beck, Todd Terje, Mastodon, The Naked And Famous and Bombay Bicycle club. There’s also the genius ‘Shia LaBeouf’ by Rob Cantor, which is well worth your time!
