Track of the Day

Animal Collective – ‘In The Flowers’

My favourite from their acclaimed eighth album released in 2009, Merriweather Post Pavilion, ‘In The Flowers’ is a masterful fusion of atmospheric quiet and wild neo-psychedelic euphoria.



Track of the Day

Brian Eno – ‘The Big Ship’ 


A fitting start. My personal favourite from Eno’s 1974 art pop masterpiece Another Green World, this track is spine-chilling stuff; equal parts beautiful and tear-jerking.




The Big Ship Blog sets sail

Hello, internet.

I’ve set up The Big Ship Blog to talk about a whole host of stuff, but right now I’m just focussing on popular music. I plan to bring anything from satire to gaming on board (pun intended) in the future. So if pop music isn’t your thing, sit tight.

I will try to pump out a few album reviews fairly regularly, as well as tracks of the day and all that jazz (pun not intended). Over time I will hopefully start including films, video games and so on.

Stay safe,
