Sunday Morning Soundtrack

So my first post back in the blogosphere is gonna be a simple one….mainly due to the fact that i’m hungover and i’m awake ridiculously early for a Sunday morning. It’s too warm to sleep and too warm for me to go outside so i’m stuck in the middle, sitting here with an open window, my laptop and a bowl of cornflakes.

Here are three very different songs that are soundtracking my Sunday morning so far…

Cities Aviv – Float On

LA2019 – Arctic Stars Melt The Clouds

Jeff Buckley – I Want Someone Badly

And that’s about it for my first (new) post. I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

Your Biggest Fear Will Be The Rescue Of You

Due to a variety of reasons the blog is going on an indefinite hiatus. Right now i just don’t have the desire to continue it. I’ve really enjoyed using this page and posting as regularly as i could but it’s time for it to come to an end. Who knows it might be back one day or i might even hand it over to someone who can dedicate more time to it and has the willingness to put the effort into it. I just don’t feel like i do it justice it anymore. Either way this will be the last post for a while.

There’s something about the look in your eyes
Something I noticed when the light was just right
It reminded me twice that I was alive
And it reminded me that you’re so worth the fight

My biggest fear will be the rescue of me
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear… Something I’ve not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear… Something I’ve not seen?
Something infinitely interesting

Theres something about the way you move
I see your mouth in slow motion when you sing
More subtle than something someone contrives
Your movements echo that I have seen the real thing

Your biggest fear will be the rescue of you
Strange how it turns out that way, yeah

Could you show me dear… Something I’ve not seen?
Something infinitely interesting
Could you show me dear… Something I’ve not seen?
Something infinitely interesting

Alone, Jealous And Stoned

I must have lived so long with covered eyes
When did you say goodbye?
I’m only just waking up
To all the joy that you’ve outgrown
Memories I can’t erase
Alone, jealous and stoned

Idle kids with idle hearts
Some of them went too far
Some still waiting there
Sitting at home, what am I doing?
Boy waitng by the phone
Alone, jealous and stoned

I waited for you
I always waited for you

Can’t have been too late
As I was still warm
Fighting off heavy eyes
Still thinking that you would call
Echoing words, voices, thoughts
Remembering what you forgot
I was just hanging out
Sitting at home, what am I doing?
A boy waitng by the phone
Alone, jealous and stoned

I waited for you
I always waited for you

If You Tolerate This Then Your Genre Will Be Next…

“This mix is supposed to sound like it shouldn’t sound like it does…….get it? Nah, me neither.”


It’s filed under “Fucked up”, that’s good enough for me.

51 Seconds

Last month Justin Vernon of Bon Iver revealed that the band would be releasing his second album, the follow up to the bautiful “For Emma, Forever Ago”, in June. Earlier this week he released artwork, tracklisting and a little video teaser of what to expect….

It’s taken 3 years to make “Bon Iver, Bon Iver” and inbetween, the recording of the new stuff, Justin Vernon has been a very busy man. Always keeping himself on the go musically with not only his own material but guest spots with Kanye West, Anais Mitchell, All Tiny Creatures, The National etc etc. Add in his collaborative work with Gayngs and Volcano Choir and you have an insanely tight schedule. So it’s pretty fucking amazing to know that he’s put the time aside to release what is surely going to be another masterpiece under the Bon Iver name. I hope they tour this summer.

Bon Iver – Self Titled (Tracklist)
All the songs (apart from the closer Beth/Rest) are named after places.

1. Perth
2. Minnesota,
3. Holocene
4. Towers
5. Michicant
6. Hinnom, TX
7. Wash.
8. Calgary
9. Lisbon, OH
10. Beth/Rest

Here’s the most  enigmatic 51 seconds i’ve heard all year…

MP3: Bon Iver – Creature Fear

I’m gonna do a post on the many musical adventures of Justin Vernon at some point this summer, you won’t want to miss it. Until then here’s a little reminder of THAT talent in the form of the delicate “Creature Fear”.

Halfway Home

Just discovered the really sad news that TV On The Radio member Gerard Smith has passed away at the age of only 34.

Last month the band revealed that their bassist had been diagnosed with lung cancer and today they announced that he had passed away this morning, just 9 days after the release of the bands latest release “Nine Types Of Light”. To some, Smith was maybe one of the lesser known members of TV On The Radio but he was not any less influential than any of his bandmates. He’ll be sadly missed. My thoughts are with his friends and family.

Sometimes words can’t do justice so i’ll let the music speak for itself.

RIP Gerard Smith
