Tinderstick

28 Feb

I’ve been craving new music lately (hence the recent stream of blog posts!) and Tindersticks sated my ears just wonderfully. A youtube session i quite happily danced down, and now all the albums are in my amazon wishlist!! The vocals are glorious and the instrumentals are goosebump worthy. Here are a few of my favourites:

I love the video for Medicine, it’s a beautiful little insight into their world.

Two Doors Down

14 Feb

I wish i was in love with a girl who lived two doors down… i wish i was in love…

I’ve had this song on repeat for the past week or so, it’s wonderful, and seeing as it is that oh so sickening commercialization of love day it seems rather appropriate to post today!

I love how fantastically shit the video is, it’s brilliant. I feel like i should watch it with a kind of car crash embarrassment but i can’t help but find it really cool! and am now more than a little attracted to this band!

Seeing as it’s also my birthday today, have a bonus tune!

Happy Valentine’s Day 🙂

This is my new favourite thing on the internet.

I’ve watched every morning for the past two weeks.

It is the best get-out-of-bed-and-start-your-day-with-something-awesome song!

The original song, by Cat Stevens, is played during the credits and all credit is due to him this song (and yes i know this sounds horrendously cheesy) speaks to my soul! And for me, watching Amanda Palmer play through a bunch of her wonderful fans, in glorious ninja stylings, to the tune of the ocean in the fading sunlight is heart-breakingly beautiful perfection.

 

p.s. Amanda i do want be you. If i wish for it hard enough do you think it will happen?!

Baz Luhrmann – Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen

Although this is essentially a song just full of cliched motivational poster type phrases set to a chilled out tune, it’s actually quite a beautiful song. A little cheesy (especially the classic 90’s music video!), a little bizarre but ultimately some good advice and an enjoyable enough song… it’s nice to hear something with “nice” lyrics.

And with such nice weather at the moment…. remember to always wear sunscreen! 🙂

Amanda Palmer and Kim Boekbinder – Such Great Heights

 

Amanda Palmer and Kim Boekbinder – Map of Tasmania –  fuck that rap is awesome! “so let me clarify what we’re trying to say, there’s a 1000 ways to shave it, so, DO IT YOUR OWN WAY!”

 

So much love!

Amanda Palmer and Kim Boekbinder – Such Great Heights

I might be falling down a Kim Boekbinder youtube hole…… i haz a happee!

Also, how awesome would it be to stumble into a toilet and find Amanda Palmer and Kim Boekbinder playing music?! I’ll leave you to think about that…..

The Sky is Calling

4 Apr

Here is the beautiful new album artwork for Kim Boekbinder’s The Sky is Calling:

W139

Release date has been set for June 21st 2013 but you can pre-order the digital album here for just one dollar (or more if you are that awesome)! or $15 and you can hold the wonderful piece of “space pop” in your pretty little hands.

An album inspired by the cosmos. Including songs abut space and also songs not about space at all. First and foremost a brilliant pop album with well crafted songs and gorgeous production. A work of love.

Excited!? Me too!

Enjoy this while you wait:

Forgot how much i love this song! And there is a wonderfully weird, creepy video to match! Anything with a little allusion to sexyness is good in my books!
