Musings On Music

Top Tunes 2017 + A Spotify Playlist

I read Caitlin Moran‘s Manifesto last year and she described her fervour for Get Lucky by Daft Punk, where she became obsessed by the song and played it over and over to a ridiculous extent. Star Roving was my Get Lucky  for the year. The shoe gazer […]

Saturday Sounds : Deadly Valentine from Charlotte Gainsbourg

My music posts have dwindled it would seem BUT here’s a track I love from the album released yesterday by Charlotte Gainsbourg called Rest. The album has plenty of well-known collaborators including Paul McCartney, Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Kiwi Connan Mockasin. Charlotte is probably […]

New Music : Sort Of … Lift from Radiohead

Radiohead released OKNOTOK 1997 2017 their 20th anniversary edition of OK Computer this year with songs from the original recordings that didn’t make the album. So yesterday another old / new track got the video treatment. It’s a little strange hearing something that essentially documents […]

June / July Favourites : Summer Is Here

Summer is with us in a huge way. Temperatures are blazing and all the tourists are in town. There are near daily trips to the beach in the late afternoon when I can just about handle the lashings of sun. Unfortunately there have been some […]

April Favourites : A Mixed Bag

To be honest I was a little preoccupied with the French elections in April and engaged in much reading and TV viewing to better understand the system.  Relief was palpable as Macron saw off Le Pen in the second round, although he has a hard road ahead. In […]

March Favourites : Spring Has Finally Sprung

Ups and downs ran amok in March but overall it was a good month, primarily due to the buzz of fragrant Esxence and the arrival of spring with its abundance of colour, flowers and warmer temperatures. This is a great time of the year to go […]

Flower Music : Soulwax Ft Chloe Sevigny : Heaven Scent

I stumbled on this music from one of the weekly playlists that Spotify recommends to me each week. It’s not new. It came out last year but I don’t think I’ve ever heard a track that references so many flowers.  On Heaven Scent, Chloe Sevigny reads a poem called […]

February Favourites : White As Snow

2017 is zooming by and we’re now into March and thankfully spring will arrive at the end of the month which is such a mood booster, it’s like a little mother’s helper but of the natural variety. There is an abundance of colour in these parts thanks […]
