A general note on a new OC Weekly thing I’m doing

Though it’s actually been running for some weeks now! I’ve linked it in over on Facebook a few times but it’s called Beat Blvd., and it’s a once-a-week review via the overall Heard Mentality blog of a new release by a local act, whoever it might be and whatever might be released (7″, tape, CD…as noted, whatever it might be!).

I came up with the name as a reference to the legendary Beach Blvd. compilation on Posh Boy — TinyMixTapes had an appreciation up about it a while back — and so far it’s been pretty fun. Last couple of weeks have been about the healthy Anglophilic strain that the area’s always had due to recent releases by Cat Party and Northern Labour Party (lots of parties, really) but there’s more to come in other areas and all. Might see about expanding it out a bit — we’ll see!
