So Gold Soundz has moved to New York. I’m a little sad that I’m not in my beloved Toronto anymore, with its Canadian charm and all, but there’s no place like New York, and I’ve dreamed of moving here for many, many years.
So what’s the story? I decided that I wanted to go to law school in New York and luckily I was accepted by a couple. I decided to enrol in The Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School, which is part of Yeshiva University. I start classes officially on Monday, though last Thursday (not this one that just passed) we started orientation, so I’ve been getting familiar with the school and the students and so far so good.
The blog will continue – if it made it through the IDF it can make it through law school…hopefully – and the only change will be that the Torontopia feature, that focused on notable releases by local Toronto bands, will now be This Is New York, and it will focus on notable New York band releases.
To celebrate the move I’ve put together a little New York mix, with bands either from the city or singing about it (btw, I’m including Brooklyn as part of New York). I know there’s a million bands that omg had had had to be on a New York mix (LCD Soundsystem, The National, Television, Ramones, etc.) but this what I came up with for this time. I think it’s a pretty deece selection in any case.
