Stonefield’s latest entry into the acidic psychedelic rock genre, bent, feels very much like a continuation of their previous release far from earth, and that is truly to its credit. it’s a maturation of the sound coming a year later, and while it carries and almost identical energy it definitely has its own identity. the aussie queens of the 70s throwback sound nail it yet again, so this one is highly recommended. highlight tracks include sleep, people, route 29, shutdown, and woman. available on itunes and spotify.
fuck it’s great having a solid manager like @emilybeaumont18 mentoring me in my new role, i can always leave and come back ready and wanting to learn more. good cardio tonight to close the week too. #beard #ink #tattoos #gym #health #fitness #fit #cardio #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #friday #weekend #newrelease #stonefield #bent #2019 #sleep #people #route29 #shutdown #woman #rock #psychedelic #acidrock #alternative #throwback #australia #itunes #spotify

The fourth season of game of thrones is the last truly strong one in terms of storytelling, adapting the second half of a storm of swords, but it is where the adaptation decay starts to show. the performances are strong from all involved, @thorbjornsson as the third incarnation of gregor clegane was a solid choice, as was @pascalispunk as oberyn martell, the drawback is that the pacing feels a little disjointed. breaking away from the formula still brought success, but it is a little jarring. ramin djawadi delivers another excellent soundtrack for it though, absolutely no faults there. season four available on home media and streaming services, soundtrack available on itunes and spotify.
actually managed a full night of sleep last night, first in a while, so arm/back/core session benefited from it. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #thursday #armday #backday #coreday #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #gameofthrones #soundtrack #season4 #astormofswords #2014 #ramindjawadi #fantasy #epic #thewall #oberynmartell #itunes #spotify #georgerrmartin #asongoficeandfire

Here we are at the end (for now) of the electric six career run with their 2018 album bride of the devil, which has some crazy eighties punk/funk vibes in it. really it’s very reminiscent of early rhcp, but with a tempo more closely associated with the detroit disco punk outfit that doesn’t betray their signature sound. it’s interesting how they’ve moved their sound forward by looking back, in a move that can be hit or miss this is certainly a hit. highlight tracks include the opener, daddy’s boy, safety girl, the title track, and grey areas. available on itunes and spotify.
pretty happy with my cardio work tonight, still a little drained but the results are there. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #wednesday #cardio #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #electricsix #brideofthedevil #2018 #theopener #daddysboy #safetygirl #greyareas #rock #alternative #funk #punk #disco #itunes #spotify

Tool yesterday off because still in recovery mode but back at it for sarah blasko’s most recent album, depth of field. i really like the mostly upbeat energy of this 2018 disc, and while that does contrast heavily against some of the subject matter, it meshes together really well to create some good vibes that’ll definitely bring me back for her next release. highlight tracks include phantom, a shot, never let me go, and read my mind. available on itunes and spotify.
still pretty bleh, especially after an unexpected extended work day, but solid arm/chest/shoulder session regardless. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #tuesday #armday #chestday #shoulderday #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #sarahblasko #depthoffield #2018 #phantom #ashot #neverletmego #readmymind #alternative #dreampop #indie #jazz #australia #itunes #spotify

I’ve been unwell, but can’t go wrong with incubus, especially their 2011 itunes set recorded live in soho which takes the stage for this week’s #livesessionsunday. the calabasas band rarely fail to impress with their live sets, and the recording quality of what is effectively a best-of performance is through the roof on this digital exclusive. it’s one of their shortest live releases coming in under an hour, and the absence for the most part of banter with the audience is noticeable, but the rapport is there. available exclusively on itunes and apple music.
as i said, health could be better, so a light leg session was all o could manage without too much detriment. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #sunday #legday #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #incubus #live #2011 #ituneslivefromsoho #soho #rock #alternative #funk #metal #numetal #postgrunge #itunes #applemusic

Polish club’s new album iguana is amazing, one of the best new australian albums to come out so far this year. this 2019 disc is quite different to what came before, with a new frenetic energy that reminds me a lot of wax fang with a more garage/punk drive behind it. after the last couple of days i’ve really needed the hype, so @bestpolishclub i’ve gotta thank you for it. highlight tracks include we don’t care, the title track, goddamn!, clarity, and 2 scared. available on itunes and spotify now.
i’m unwell and have just lost a family member, cardio was a nice distraction but feeling very fragile. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #friday #weekend #cardio #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #polishclub #iguana #newrelease #2019 #wedontcare #clarity #g*****n #2scared #rock #alternative #punk #garage #soul #itunes #spotify #australia

Game of thrones’ third season is arguably its best written in terms of adaptation straying from the source, and taken from the first half of a storm of swords it delivers some of the most painful and poignant moments in the series. again, no spoilers, but the development of jaime and brienne is great to watch, and episode 9 is one of the most devastating of the whole series. it’s not without a couple of stumbles in pacing, but this is peak television. ramin djawadi knocks it out of the park yet again with the score. season 3 available on home media and streaming services, soundtrack available on itunes and spotify.
arm/back/core work was better than usual today, my recovery is up, which is weird considering i’m at the beginning of a cold. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #thursday #armday #backday #coreday #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #gameofthrones #season3 #ramindjawadi #soundtrack #fantasy #epic #redwedding #therooseisloose #thelannisterssendtheirregards #stark #itunes #spotify

Electric six have a very 90s sound in their 2017 album how dare you, and that is honestly refreshing this deep into the disco punk band’s career. of course they don’t stray too far from their signature sound, but the sensibility they have approached this disc with revitalised them as a musical force to be reckoned with. highlight tracks include arrive alive, s*x with somebody, the title track, and routine cocooning. available on itunes and spotify.
some personal stuff going on, not getting into it here but feeling pretty vulnerable/fragile. cardio is about where i want it to be. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #wednesday #cardio #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #electricsix #howdareyou #2016 #arrivealive #sexwithsomebody #routinecocooning #rock #alternative #punk #disco #detroit #itunes #spotify

Eternal return feels like it’s sarah blasko’s take on a david bowie aesthetic, and oh boy is that my vibe. this 2016 disc is a return to form after her collaborative effort with nick wales, although it does take some of the more cosmic sounds from that album to help forge that bowie-esque sound. really good vibes around the whole thing, whether you pick up the standard or deluxe version. highlight tracks include i am ready, i’d be lost, beyond, and say what you want. available on itunes and spotify.
happy with arm/chest/shoulder work today, way too caffeinated though. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #tuesday #armday #chestday #shoulderday #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #sarahblasko #eternalreturn #2016 #iamready #idbelost #beyond #saywhatyouwant #alternative #pop #jazz #indie #synth #itunes #spotify

We round out the amaranthe career run (to date) with their 2018 album helix, which is their most competent to date and strikes the perfect balance between the dance pop and metal genres. with elements of dubstep and death metal riffing mixing in ways that should not work, this album is forty minutes of unexpected success that only this swedish metal band could hit. something new and different coming next week, keep an eye out. highlight tracks include 365, the title track, countdown, and iconic. available on itunes and spotify.
physio and regular therapy days today plus cardio; i feel like i’m in a better place than i was before, but there’s still a long way to go. glad i have a strong support network, you know who you are, i know you do read these and i appreciate you. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #monday #cardio #physiotherapy #therapy #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #amaranthe #inferno #2018 #365 #countdown #iconic #metal #dance #pop #heavymetal #deathmetal #sweden #itunes #spotify

I went through a d e e p if quiet goth phase about a decade ago, siouxsie and the banshees at the forefront of it, so this week’s #livesessionsunday brings them back with their live in cologne 1981 set. the dissonant chords of the british art punk band are a fantastic example of goth done right; gloomy, but not depressing or edgy, and this carries across in an energetic performance with some serious recording pedigree. really, it’s gotta be experienced rather than described, so i highly recommend it. available on itunes and spotify.

I’ll admit i’ve never closely followed the national, but their new album i am easy to find is a great vibe so maybe i’ve been missing out. it’s well produced, and while it’s not running at a high bpm, the energy behind it is enormous and consistent. definitely worth taking the time for if you’re after something chill and a little different. highlight tracks include you had your soul with you, quiet light, roman holiday, oblivions, and light years. available on itunes and spotify now.
light cardio before work today, feeling alright for it so might try to do this a little more consistently to keep friday nights clear. #gym #health #fitness #fit #beard #ink #tattoos #friday #weekend #cardio #comewithmeifyouwanttolift #irontherapy #thenational #iameasytofind #2019 #newrelease #youhadyoursoulwithyou #quietlight #romanholiday #oblivions #lightyears #alternative #rock #softrock #indie #itunes #spotify
