The Music Box: An update


You may have realised that this blog has been lying rather dormant in the last few months. I began my first full time job in September and have found it difficult to strike the work-life balance necessary to keep my hobbies, such as this blog, going.

I love this blog, I really do. I’ve spent hours working on it over the years – perfecting reviews, compiling playlists, playing with the layout etc but unfortunately it is not a viable project with my job. I must be honest with myself in that I cannot invest the time and effort needed to continue its growth.

Therefore things will change in 2017. I want it to continue this blog’s life promoting new up & coming artists and songs etc but it will be on a less regular basis.

Here’s what I aim to keep:

  • Monthly Mixtape
  • Themed Playlists
  • Music Monday (possibly an abridged version)

So thank you for the support this year – whether you’ve read loads of our posts or just one or two, every read is greatly appreciated.

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

The Music Box.


October Mixtape

This month’s mixtape is a little heavy in melancholia but that’s the beauty of music – getting us through the rough times.

I’m not posting much here anymore because I am struggling to find the time. I am not 100% sure I get much traffic anyway. I continue to post these monthly mixtapes because I like to share what I am listening to and they don’t take long to compile/post.
