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 : 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Saturday Sounds : Another New Radiohead Track : Daydreaming

Radiohead have released the single Daydreaming in quick succession to Burn The Witch. The video clip is directed by film director Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, Boogie Nights) and features a slightly dishevelled Thom Yorke wandering through doors into homes, hospitals, laundromats, snow etc. But what does it all […]

New Music : Radiohead : Burn The Witch

Radiohead‘s new song and video Burn The Witch was released yesterday. The claymation video is of course a little on the strange side with hints of The Wickerman. Accompanied by strings, some odd sounds and a feeling of dread, it’s in classic Radiohead territory. I’m a HUGE fan […]

New Music Monday : Lapsley’s Long Way Home

I loved Lapsley‘s (Holly Lapsley Fletcher) music  from the first moment I heard her track Falling Short. She’s finally released the twelve track Long Way Home after drip feeding single after single. Lapsley is a young artist (only 19 years old) who sounds like she’s been around for a […]

New Music Monday : Bat For Lashes : I Do

A haunting old school ditty with a delectable ambience is how I’d describe the new track from Bat For Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) called I Do. It’s short, sweet and rather lovely with a lilting harp and wedding imagery. I suppose we need to wait until […]

New Music Monday : James Blake : Modern Soul

I’ve been waiting for the first track in 2016 to hit me hard and this is it – Modern Soul from James Blake. If you loved his single Renegade from the album Overgrown then this will  probably be right up your alley too. James Blake has one of those strangely […]
