It’s Wednesday… Let’s Dance

Sometimes you have one of those weeks where you feel like you’re swimming through shit. This is one of those weeks and to top it all my tooth broke, in moments like these there’s nothing else to do than lose yourself in a mesmerising album. Luckily for me Kowton released one, Utility is the other world I needed to hide away in.

A Bluish Shadow is the kind of track that leaves you hypnotised and as you’re about to nod off the album throws you off the bed. Take a listen and let me know what you think.



It’s Wednesday… Let’s Dance

I forgot how much I love Broken social scene.

People have been asking me who I’d want to see at Glastonbury this year and I hadn’t really given it much thought. There’s actually a pretty long list that include the impossible (Smiths) to the confirmed (Floating Points) but it would be incredible to see BSS reform and smash out classics like this, however unlikely it now is.

It’s hard to ignore such beautiful, life defining music that makes you feel things you don’t want to

It’s Wednesday… Let’s Dance

Can you imagine a track more viscerally thrilling than this piece of art from Brian Eno.

I’ve been trying to work with this in the background, at some point I can’t help but stop what I’m doing, turn the volume as loud as possible and let the track play out. It’s not great for productivity but is anything fun ever good for productivity?

No, I haven’t been able to dance to this just yet, but mentally I’m hopping all over the place.


It’s Wednesday, Let’s Dance…

I was looking through the notes on my phone earlier this week. I found this track played by a friend I’d made in Cambodia a few months ago and my God it’s even smoother than I remember it.

Can you imagine being this suave?

It’s also coincided with a week of positivity, remembering good times and thinking about the future so it’s been played a whole lot. Let’s be happy!



5 Lyrical Tracks

I’ve made a little list of 5 of the best tracks for word lovers.

This National Track is raw and insecure, it’s the type of sound that made me fall in love with their music in the first place. Baby, We’ll Be Fine is a ‘will anyone ever love me’ kind of sad Sunday afternoon song (if that’s even a thing) but it gets me every time!

Sufjan Stevens makes amazing music, with so many beautiful lyrical tracks alongside more experimental ventures makes him a really exciting artist to follow. His latest album was pretty much a lyrical feast and this track, that describes the day his estranged mother died, is so so good!

The Smiths.
That’s I should have to say but to be precise, Morrisey’s lyrics have it all, they can be gloomy & sad, funny, desperate, ridiculous or all those at the same time. It can be quite intense listening to too much of The Smiths but it’s always worth it. Good lyrics mean good music for years to come and this is the case with The Smiths.

I found out about tobias jess jr recently and this was the track that got me started, this song gives me the music shivers and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Enjoy!

Jean Grae is the shit. She’s done so much and is constantly developing her style. She’s an inspiration for anyone that thinks there shouldn’t be limits on what you can do with your life. I could really put any Jean Grae track up on this list. If there’s 1 artist I could recommend you listen to more, it’s Jean. Listen to this track and try and get a hold of the lyrics, then go to the Rap Genius page and prepare to have your mind blown.

You don’t like this list, so what, I don’t care!! MOTHERFUCKERRRRR!!!!!
