This week I’m listening to…

The Man Who Told Everything by the Doves… on repeat.

Could telling the world the whole truth, sharing everything we know without sugar coating it be our escape? Would it make us feel liberated? Would it redeem all those years we spent reciting common white lies to conform to society? Or is going against the tide worse? Is the whole truth a greater sin?

“Older Together”

 

WHO, WHERE, WHAT
Black Light Dinner Party.Dan, Jack, Zach, Joel. Brooklyn. Synth-pop/electronic pop.

HOW IT ALL STARTED
Jack: We all met in Boston. Originally we were all working on music—different kinds of stuff—individually, and we’d all play the same venues. We were all friends, but then my mom got sick, my mom had breast cancer, so we decided to do a project that was maybe a little less out there, and more accessible for people, like my mom. That’s when we started working on tracks and writing songs. That became “Older Together,” that was the first song we wrote. My mom died. When people really started liking it, it was all bittersweet, it was a little sad, but people really loved it.

HOW IT ALL ENDED
In January 2015 BLDP announced that they had amicably parted ways.

Tallulah: “lady of abundance, or leaping water”

My go-to song if I’m looking to find peace of mind by candlelight in my room.

The Morning Benders – Excuses

 

So I used to listen to this song a lot, but somehow I went from showing it to others to completely forgetting about it. Then just yesterday a friend of mine re-shared it with me and told me that every time she listened to it she remembered me. I suppose that’s the benefit of sharing music with friends, family and even strangers. It does bring us closer.

This is an amazing cover of Drake’s One Dance. I don’t usually listen to Conor Maynard but I ran into this today and I had to share. Enjoy

Vance Joy – Riptide – Acoustic Unplugged Version

I don’t think there’s a lot to say – this song is perfection and I adore this unplugged ukulele version. ❤

I’m chilling in Brussels in rainy weather, but nothing can stop this feeling of summer!

Song Of The Week:

Haven’t done this in a while… as per usual.
This isn’t anything new to be entirely honest, but there are two reasons for which I am posting this.
First, because it’s relaxing and fun to listen to while I walk to school! And secondly, because I am taking some time to rediscover and further discover some artists that are going to Rock Werchter so I can sing along to more than just one song… Jamie Lidell happens to be one of the artists in the line-up 🙂
The song actually doesn’t correspond with my current mood given that I have been sick this past week and bed bound, but hopefully when I’m up and going I can enjoy it more 🙂

Song Of The Week:

I realized that I’ve never posted a Turkish song on my blog, and given that I am in Istanbul I figured this would be very, very suitable. I love, love, love this song! It’s very beautiful and the images in the video will give you a taste of the beautiful city. The title means “Autumn in Istanbul” (but let’s pretend it’s spring).
But anyway, what are you waiting for? Hit play! I promise you won’t regret it… 🙂

Song Of The Week: Oh! You Pretty Things

I found myself listening to Bowie a lot this week… I guess there has been a lot of news about him lately given that it was recently his birthday, and given that he is releasing an album for the first time in 10 years!
This is probably one of my favourite songs. I’m really enjoying listening to it, and find it constantly stuck in my head.
