Kelis is never expected, and always good. Food has been one of my favorite albums of the year, and I I loved this interview with her on Sound Opinions.
Amok is fantastic. It’s my favorite album from Thom Yorke or Radiohead since In Rainbows.
DMB Means Summer
I’m listening to Gaucho, from DMB’s latest, Away from the World…
I can feel the wind on my face, blowing off the Columbia as the sun sets over the Gorge Amphitheater. I can see the lighting rigs flash and glint as they sway above the stage. I can smell the smoke wafting. I can feel the flip flops between my toes, and the anticipation of friends huddled as we press against the fence at the bottom of the lawn. This joy will stay with me all year; the thought will lighten the darkest times. It’s the perennial, precious, spiritual thrill of summer, when the world is at its best.
“We’ve gotta do much more than believe, if we wanna see the world change. We’ve gotta do much more than believe…”
Don’t judge Kimbra by her overplayed collaboration with Gotye. Her album “Vows” is amazing. Girl’s got breadth.
One day like this a year’d see me right
Posted for the song, not for the video. (Although it’s beautiful in a way, too.)
I’m about five years late to the Elbow party.
