Musings On Music

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 […]

Pop Culture Anniversary Alert : Rumours is 40 Years Old!

Rumours,  the classic Fleetwood Mac album turned 40 years old this month. The band was originally a British blues formation but with changes in the lineup and a shift to an easy flowing pop / rock sound, they really hit their stride. Rumours is one of the best selling albums of all time […]

New Music : Rooting For You : London Grammar

It’s been a while since I posted anything music related but here’s a song I’ve been listening to on repeat.  Rooting For You is a new tune from London Grammar with Hannah Reid‘s haunting vocals. This is their first release since 2013’s If You Wait so hopefully […]

RIP George Michael 1963 – 2016

If you grew up in the 80’s George Michael‘s music was omnipresent. From Wham‘s quite hilarious yet incredibly smart and infectious take on pop through to Faith and then onto the 90’s with the Freedom supermodel song. He was a huge deal. His voice was […]

New Music : Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds : Jesus Alone

I’ll make this brief and state my adoration for Nick Cave‘s music, his gruff voice and lyrics. Favourite tracks are Deanna, Into My Arms, The Ship Song, Nature Boy and Where The Wild Roses Grow featuring Kylie Minogue. On the face of it an unlikely collaboration, but it […]

Smelly Interludes : Music Gigs : Top 5 Smells

Music gigs are magic. There’s nothing like hearing live music to transport you from daily life. Last week I attended two gigs which is totally out of the ordinary. I would love to see and hear more music acts but Paris gets everything and occasionally an […]

New Music Monday : Blood Orange : Freetown Sound

It’s been a while since I did a music post and found an album that grabbed me, and here’s one that’s just been released that I’m liking a lot. Blood Orange’s (Dev Hynes) new album Freetown Sound clocks in at just under an hour in length with 17 tracks. Hynes is the […]

New Music : Beck : Wow

Beck has a new single out that lies mid way between his slow, more melancholic / gloomy tunes and his upbeat funky numbers.  It’s called Wow and it’s groovy in a laid back way. One thing about Beck that you may not know is he is an […]
