So far, the final season of Dexter has flown by with plenty of promise, but this third episode felt like it just flew past with not much to remember it by.
Being hyped, whether its in the traditional music press or on internet blogs or social media, can be a double-edge sword. For every Lady Gaga who has gone on to huge fame and success, there’s a Lana Del Rey who gets all-but crushed when the backlash starts before you’ve even released an album. Currently getting hyped are US bands Alabama Shakes and Haim, but do they live up to it, and can they survive it?
It seems incredible now to think back a few years to life before the internet (or at least before Amazon, Google, Wikipedia, iTunes and Spotify), when buying music was very different to the way we do it nowadays. Making judgements on what to buy required much more dedicated research, or in some cases, a total leap of faith.
