Stress Free

26 Feb

After a recommendation from a friend a few weeks ago i have rather fallen in love with The XX

The music is beautifully chilled and makes for the best relaxing background noise…. and that’s coming from a stressed out jeweller in the lead up to her degree show! so it’s as zen as it comes!!

The video for Angels is one of my favourites, like the music it exudes peace and serenity… and is more than a little gloriously trippy; like a landscape in a dream.

Crystalised…. his voice…. ugh…… *melts*…..

 

Enjoy…….

Amanda Palmer posted a link to this video a few days ago, and i’m so glad she did because it is beautiful.

This guy’s voice; powerful, soft and soul-touching.

And the lyrics. “This pain. It is a glacier moving through you.” and “Don’t listen to anyone; get answers on your own. Even if it means that sometimes you feel quite alone. No one on this planet can tell you what to believe. People like to talk a lot, and they like to deceive.” Ughhh…

So, down the youtube hole i descend and here are my favourites…

I really love this video. It’s simple but so wonderful…… “You could be laughing 65% more of the time…

 

A new artist to add to my list of favourites. Brilliant.

The most recent CD to find it’s way off my pile and into my ears is Avicii’s True.

Beautiful.

I bought it because i loved this song (and now i also love the video too. Adorable, beautiful and bittersweet (perhaps a little cliche and tired imagery but on the whole a good music video), with twist ending that ranks it from good to very good!).

 

And from one song to another, i think i love the whole album! It’s rare to buy a record and like all the tracks. A new music love indeed.

I’m dancing along to all of the songs… but this one so much more than most! the bit, the bit with the song, ughhh and the whipcrack…. srsly try and stop me twirling my hips to this beauty.
