I know there are many who think Spotify is akin to Satan in terms of the little revenue it gives to artists, however lately I’ve found loads of amazing music through it. One such band/person (information seems to be very limited is Careful), have a listen.
(An aside on Spotify the thing with me is that I buy vinyl and I use to discover bands whose vinyl I buy and gigs I attend. Long live the physical medium of music!)
Today the sun has disappeared and mist is shrouding the sky. I’m continuing to unpack my latest record purchases including this one, a record made in 1963 in aid of the world’s refugees. It feels like it came out even earlier – more outwardly cheerful than you might expect and full of classics. I love records that tell stories. Sink into one of the song; this Ella Fitzgerald number.
Pinch, punch first of the month! Inspired by the Arcade Fire tune here are some springtime songs…
Sharon Van Etten ‘Everytime the Sun Comes Up’
It’s impossible not to love this lady’s music. This is a lilting, yearning track from her soon to be released new album ‘Are We There’. You can also watch a live session of it with extra glimmers over at NME.com.
San Fermin ‘Sonsick’
I feel in love with this song on my iPod. Play it loud, on a sunshine day and feel like the world is better.
John Denver ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to be Free’
This week I have been listening to a lot of old vinyl, this is my most favourite song.
