Discovering New Music

WWRS

 

As everyone reading this knows, The Wyrd Ways Rock Show is all about introducing you, the listener, to new music you won’t have heard before.  With that being the case, you’ll start to notice a few changes around here.  From now on, new album reviews will have a link to Amazon.co.uk, pointing to where you can buy either a CD or MP3 copy of that album.  At the end of each review, there will also be linked referrals to albums you’ll probably be interested in if you like the reviewed one.

One favour I would ask, as the spokesperson (and founder) of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, if you are going to buy any of these albums, please use the links provided.  This will mean that by the very act of buying that CD or MP3, you will be helping to keep the show going and helping you find more new music for no extra cost to you.

So it’s a real-life win-win situation!  Not only are you supporting the bands by buying their stuff, you’re also supporting The Wyrd Ways Rock Show in our quest to find you new material to listen to AND you’re getting it at Amazon prices (cheaper than iTunes, remember, and CDs don’t crash), delivered straight to your door AND direct to your computer, if you buy AutoRip.

I will be slowly adding Buy links to the other albums on the Reviews page over time.  Please be patient, since I’m the only one with the codes for that!

New member joins the regular broadcast team

Paradise+Lost
Elfie with Aaron Aedy

With the return of Shock Of The New as a regular feature on The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, it only seemed fitting that someone with exactly the right mixture of enthusiasm for new music and deep knowledge of her local scene should be brought in to take the feature to new heights.

So it is with great pleasure that The Wyrd Ways Rock Show welcomes aboard our new Shock Of The New presenter, Suzi “Elfie” Horsely.

According to Carl, the founder, producer and presenter of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show:

This is something that’s been brewing for a while.  I’ve known Elfie for ages and she’s always been a good mate.  Someone I can trust.  That’s why I brought her onboard as a contributor to the website and as an interviewer.  This was the logical next step.  When it comes to new bands, Elfie’s got a real ear for talent and really knows her stuff.  This is going to be good!“.

Suzi’s debut as presenter of Shock Of The New will be in Wyrd Ways Rock Show CCLXXIX, which will be heard first on Planet Mosh at 8pm (BST) on Wednesday 14th May.  Soon after the show will be available for download at http://www.wyrdwaysrs.com.

If you are in a band, are a band manager, promoter or an independent label manager, get in touch with Suzi on elfie@nullwyrdwaysrs.com to get your band on the new Shock Of The New.
