Here are all of BelloDiNotte's jams.
So here it is, my final jam. I've gone with Bill because, well, he's my favourite artist and this is my favourite song of his. I love the sentiment and his typically poetic wordplay. I've always thought it to be him saying that love, life (or perhaps jamming?), isn't easy - if it's worth having then you have to work for it...'there is no love on the hacked-away plateau'. He realises this mid-song and his mood changes...'I cantered out here, now I'm galloping back' - now you try and stop him...'so bury me in wood and I will splinter, bury me in stone and I will quake'. I'm struggling to incorporate this into a jam-related metaphor, so I'll just say thanks to all the wonderful people that I've met on TIMJ and to the fantastic music they've opened my ears to. I'll hopefully see you on one of the new sites when I finally get round to joining up! #finaljam

Another of my favourite artists at his most acerbic - and funny. 'It's always me in the only seat, That has a canopy, There to screw up the best laid plans, Of those with company...' #lastjams #keeponjamming

One of my favourite ever songs - I always thought it was about depression until Will Oldham debunked that theory in an interview. The lyrics, as ever, are fantastic... Well I hope that someday, buddy / We have peace in our lives / Together or apart / Alone or with our wives / That we can stop our whoring / And pull the smiles inside /And light it up forever / And never go to sleep / My best unbeaten brother / This isn't all I see / Oh no I see a darkness...

First post-holiday jam and the thought of today's return to work is not the most appealing one to be be honest. This was on a playlist that we listened to whilst away and consequently, I awoke with it my head this morning - albeit against the backdrop of British rain and not Italian sun. #lastjams #keeponjamming

Another of my favourites. An angry monologue by someone purporting to be Blaise Bailey who recites a poem that is almost a word-for-word version of Iron Maiden's 'Virus', which was written by...you guessed it, Blaze Bayley. It just adds a brilliant layer of subterfuge to an immense track - the feedback-drenched finale is worth the entrance money alone. #lastjams #keeponjamming

Kind of ironic that the year that is becoming such a stellar one for new music, is the very same one in which TIMJ shuffles off this mortal coil. This is the mesmeric new track from Deerhunter's forthcoming album. #last jams

I'm going to finish my time at TIMJ by playing some of my all-time favourite tracks #lastjams 'We could drive down to another beach / Even tan your skin seems white / All our friends have gone away from here / So let's disappear from sight...'

I've been highly irritable all week and Hüsker Dü's music has been a fitting soundtrack of sorts.

by Father John Misty
A pretty scathing(and as a result, funny) portrayal of a one-night stand from the excellent 'I love you, Honeybear'.

After just having returned from an amazing time at Primavera Sound, I'll be dedicating my next few jams to some of the festival highlights. These guys played a raucous set on Thursday evening and their extended version of the Death jam was incredible.

Things that I learnt watching Iceage on Friday: 1. Punk bands still have mosh pits. 2. Being unwittingly caught in this area whilst cradling your eye-wateringly expensive pint of craft beer will have serious consequences for both you and those in your immediate vicinity. 3. Beige suede shoes have no place at a punk gig. 4. Eye-wateringly expensive craft beer is extremely difficult to get out of suede - especially very light beige suede. 5. And it stings if you get it in your eyes. 6. Iceage were very good.

After it's discovery last week via the incomparable jamming of #oneeverytwo , I've played this album almost daily. It's become one of my favourite records of the year already - thanks!

One of the fantastic two new teaser tracks('Ondine' being the other), from their new album 'Escape From Evil'. Synth-tastic stuff, very reminiscent of Beach House at their most beguiling.

I heard this on Stereogum this week and it really caught my interest. An album is due in April and if this track is any indication, it sounds like being a one to listen out for.

You know that situation when you fall for a new band, but they can't release music quick enough to sate your hunger? That's very much the case with these guys. This utterly mesmeric single will have to do until the album appears later this year.

This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite albums in recent years. It's most certainly going to be a 'best of the year' contender and looking at what others are saying about it, that seems to be quite a popular opinion.

I remember hearing a stream of this on Stereogum last year, loved it, then promptly forgot about it. Until that is, @thisismymistake included it in his end of year list. I've been listening to it ever since - fantastic album.

The intro to this is playing on repeat in my head right now. Only started listening to these guys this week, but the album is fantastic - the singer reminds me of Spencer Krug and the music has a bleak 80's nihilistic vibe going on, but in a good way.
Jammed: 30th Jan 2015
These guys were great last night, despite finding myself stood next to their number one fan who spent the entire set pogoing around like a madman, caterwauling and fist pumping everything, including the band's between-song banter.

Thanks to @thisismymistake for bringing this haunting little slice of folky dream pop to my attention - it's quickly become one of my favourite records from last year.

My final jam of 2014 and I've saved my best till last. My favourite track, from my favourite album and they were also the best gig I saw this year to boot! Happy New Year fellow hammers - have a great one! #BestOf2014
