It is that time of the year again, for our website! 2019 has been, so far, another extremely rich year for the music business, in terms of quality of new releases and live performances from music artists of different genres worldwide.

This year, Bluebird Reviews has slightly changed the voting formula for the two categories, Artist Of The Year and Live Act Of The Year, by selecting randomly 10 readers of our website based in different part of the world, asking them to select their favorite artist for each category.

Electronic musician and producer Katie Gately announces her second album, ‘Loom’, out February 14th on Houndstooth, and shares the lead single, Bracer.”

Following remix work for Björk and Zola Jesus, productions for serpentwithfeet, and her debut album on Tri-Angle, Loom’ is a remarkable album, dedicated to Katie’s mother who passed away in 2018 due to a rare form of cancer. Gately channels her loss through a multitude of sounds and samples, including seismic rumbles and earthquake recordings alongside her signature adventurous sound design and unexpected earworm melodies, signifying how grief like this is like the shifting of the earth.
