A question for my lovely followers again!

Standard

Hey! ‘sme again! I have another question for you my dears! A lot of people are always interested in my interviews, reviews and playlists (thank you thank you thank you)! Some say that my reviews are on the short side, and some say that my reviews have the good length.

I prefer short-ish reviews, if a review takes more than 3 minutes for me to read I mostly ‘scan’ the most important parts of the review. Still, if there’s a need for longer reviews from me (more than 1000 words), and the need to go deeper into certain objects of the album, please let me know!

By the way, don’t forget to tune in to my show tomorrow on ISKC Rock Radio where you can catch my interview with Robin Wylie of 7sleepers (more information can be found here)!

A big hug from your roving reporter!

Iris, aka Ier!

PS: I made a new friend today! Isn’t my new friend cute?
