And so it’s done. First week in a new job. The contract is 3 days/week but did Mon-Thur this week as things settle in. Strange to be in an office again. Getting up early and scraping frost off car windows. Other people. Meetings. Their interruptions. Not knowing exactly how your day will unfold. Strange.

Now I have two jobs and can work six days a week. Bliss 🙂

Survived it all however. Wish it wasn’t so freakin’ cold so that my extremities didn’t tingle so much but that too shall pass in time. As I write this, snow is falling again.

So, who will be the next big thing music-wise in 2010?

For dub/dubstep, go for Joy Orbision. Dumb name, but better than Burial.

Joy Orbison – Hyph Mngo

For mainstream, Ellie Goulding will be everywhere. Her cover of Bon Iver’s “The Wolves” worth a listen.

For indie, go out on a limb for the Scanners. They have their first album out in February. Check out this YouTube video. I also like the remixes.

Scanners – Salvation (Don Diablo Remix)

For old-school, I’m waiting for the new Tindersticks album, due out any day now…
