I am pretty backwards when it comes to music. I would love to be one of those people who is always on the hunt for new bands and discovers the next big thing before it was big but in reality I'm still listening to the same music I was ten years ago (If they weren't on the Dawson's Creek soundtrack I haven't heard of them).
Case in point at lunch last week we were discussing music at work and one of our Australian secondees recommended brother and sister duo Angus and Julia Stone. I looked them up at the weekend and fell in love, only to discover they are not only not the next big thing, they've been the big thing and have now split up to persue solo projects!
Oh well, at least I have a good back catalogue to listen to!
