Friday Song crush time again! I have a doozy this week – I had to dig into my personal stash of special kind of music. As you probably know, I’m a raging indie groupie. If this was the 60’s, I would wear bellbottoms, crop tops without a bra and a flower crown… oh wait… it’s a “thing” now…
I realise, though, that this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea so you will be excused for not listening to this. If you’re an Alt J fan however, then you’ll know that their latest album is a MASSIVE hit and managed to make 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st on this week’s top 20 i-tunes/Kia list within a week of release! That’s pretty great.
One of my faves is The Gospel of John Hurt … think it might to good in an episode of Vampire Diaries or The Originals… is all I’m saying CW. (PS… Megzie… we totes needs to get our drank awn)
If you remember the dude from “Riptide” – Vance Joy – you’ll be pleased to know he’s not another one hit wonder and I’m happy he’s back with this one, called “First Time” – I think it’s really sweet. I love it!
You guys, weekend is here and … HAWT DAMMIT! I’m so ready for it! Without getting soppy and teary eyed… this year needs to come to an end now. Is anyone else feeling the 3/4 year fatigue like I am?
This is why I’m really enjoying the song I’m featuring today. It’s a little bit of soul that surprises you with a dose of drum and base and the video has a serious MEXICAN vibe to it, which I’m SO DIGGING!
I hope you enjoy… Here’s Changing by Sigma ft Paloma Faith
Thank you, weekend! This is the first weekend in a long time that I don’t have to be anywhere, do anything or work on anything… and I’m like… But knowing me, I’ll probably find some way to mess up the serenity of the weekend… Continue reading →
Since we’re waiting for a little Summer… I thought I’d put a “Spring” in your step with 3 songs that you’ll love and that will put you in the mood for sunny beach days.
I don’t generally like poppy songs and especially not songs by Katy Perry (I love her more than I love her music), but when she came up with THIS song and sang “This is how we do”, my Perry-love went up a couple of notches:
Growing up, I was subjected to my father’s taste in music which were sort of “bar like music”. It took a couple of years, but it grew on me and before long, I had not issue blaring my 70s Rock CD’s in my car or in my room. This song – Left hand free, by Alt J brought back a lot of good memories.
The following song needs no explanation… Summer is coming and I’m obsessed with this song… you’ll love it too.
ALSO!! Make sure to head over to RashiedaUncut for her new song post!
You can take away my makeup… I’ll retreat to the cave I came from. You can take away my wine… actually that’s not accurate… don’t touch my wine. You can take away my chocolate… It will be hard, but DON’T take away my music!!
This week has been dedicated to reviews, competition reveals and event updates, but I want to end it off with some good vibes and music. So here you go… somme 2 songs!
The Kiffness – Find a way Ft Shortstraw
Again… my piece of humble pie is getting really big. This is all sorts of kiff and cool and SUMMER… which is why it’s high up on my playlist – getting me into the summer mood! Enjoy!
Lana Del Rey – West Coast
This song’s name was easy to remember because… I so badly wanna go to L.A. one day… this song though… HAWT DAMN… it’s so cool… that LL Cool J needs to change his name to LL Lame J…
A little while ago, I heard a song on the radio. I liked it, Googled the lyrics and downloaded it. Then a couple of weeks later, I heard the same song… REMIXED… and my world changed forever. Now, when I hear a song I like, I’ll rather check out if anyone has done a remix of it yet.
I give you – Alle Farben feat. Graham Candy – She Moves (Far Away) [Bakermat Remix]
Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when I featured Beatenberg’s Rafael? I said “jammer Goldfish… it’s Beatenberg for best SA band now..” I also admitted to not being very fond of the South African music scene either and last week Veranda Panda got me going with their new song “Pineapple Sundae”.
This week I heard Goldfish’s Moonwalk away for the first time and absolutely LOVED it. There are quite a few remixes of this song, but I quite dig the Moonlanding mix the most (also the version played on the radio).
I hope you enjoy it and gets you excited about summer as it makes me! K-Bosch summer concerts… \m/ whooohoo!
Oh… and also… Goldfish… I’m sorry. *eats another peace of humble pie*
