Autechre (pron. awe-tek-er) are hands-down one of my fave bands. Of all the wicked songs I could share, I chose this one because of the amazing clip. It’s hectic and brilliant, and you simply must watch:

Survived that?! Buy some!

In 2003, who knew this is how I would read this news?

Björk for Prime Minister.

If you don’t know Antony and The Johnsons, you are about to thank me.
 

Now go buy an album. I recommend starting with The Crying Light, but if live music is your thing, go with Cut The World. Both are Ahhhh-mazing.
Do you love you some Antony?
Any sound-alike recommendations for me pls?

My #blogjune Sounds on Sunday set cannot be complete without Radiohead. Consistently in my top 3 fave music makers, Radiohead are perhaps my favourite band. Too hard to call, yes, but probably. Fave song is outright too hard to choose. Here’s one of my faves from Amnesiac:

I’m quite ill right now, so this fits my mood. Did you know Radiohead got their name from a Talking Heads song? Cool huh?!
Do you have a favourite Radiohead song? Or album?
Care to share any Radiohead sound-alike recommendations please? I’m always looking for new music! :)

Sinéad O’Connor is another of my fave artists. I don’t adore all her albums, but she remains a mainstay in my fave list.
Choosing a favourite song is always hard, but for the longest time, my favourite of hers has been Troy from The Lion and the Cobra.
Enjoy…

Powerful huh?!
I got this close to seeing her live a few years ago, but that’s another story. My mates got me a tour t-shirt though!
Have you seen her?

Any hot tips of sound-alike artists for me? :)


Music for my birthday

Posted: June 15th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: music, other loves | Tags: , , , , , , | No Comments »

Last year my parents gave me $100 cash for my birthday. AWESOME! The card read along the lines of “buy yourself something you love, like music.” So I did. One hundred dollars worth of music by the magnificent Clark. I bought some yummy vinyl, a cd and mp3s. It felt so indulgent, and fantastic! The downloads of course provided instant yayness. The hard copies fulfilled my penchant for delayed gratification.
Here’s a subdued Clark song with a tops video: check it out!

Oh and I am very excited there’s a new album coming!

Any recommendations for me party people?! :)

Apart from libraries and learning, one of my other loves is music.

If you don’t know My Brightest Diamond, do yourself a favour & check her out. Lead singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/composer Shara Worden is hands down one of my favourite artists.

Here’s one of her newer songs:

There’s more clips & photos on my first Storify post here.

You like? Any recommendations for me pls? I love getting hot tips :)
