MUSE/Falling away with you

This is my favourite song from this band...I especially love the organic squeakiness of when he changes chords...or whatever you call it!

This is a favourite song to Daydream with...perfect for being Away with the Fairies :)

Some Favourite Suzanne Vega Songs

I'm not sure why I'm suddenly so in a Suzanne Vega mood lately- I couldn't sleep without first listening to her beautiful 'lullaby' voice :)

I guess it's cos she is of an era I'm more comfortable with...

Sufjan Stevens/A Good Man is Hard to Find

perhaps with some irony LOL, this stands out as one of my favourite Sufjan Songs - it's off Seven Swans...

p.s why always the wings?!!

Arcade Fire/Keep the Car Running (Coachella 2007)

LOL...lots of curling up to sleep, chocolate, music and art later my car is now running again after going AWOL the last few days cos the fuel tank had totally run empty!

Love this very fun song by Arcade Fire- always makes me feel like jumping up and down :)

If I ever get on that long haul flight to CA I really want to go to Coachella...

World Music Spotlight: TCHEKA

Knowing that I love world music, especially YOUSSOU N'DOUR(Senegal) and African music in general, my mate was telling me about the newer popstars out of Cape Verde(prior I had only known about Cesaria Evora)...anyhow it was when I was checking out one of his recommendations: Lura, that I stumbled across the amazing voice of TCHEKA!!

Anyhow please enjoy...

Aussie Music: Does anyone remember THE HUMMINGBIRDS?!!

Arguably the cream of Aussie *POP* music in 1989 onwards...well yeah it was all the rage to me as a 9 year old LOL clip two is particularly daggy (was My Favourite back then LOL) but the video is an interesting documentation of Australia at that time.

Anyway found these on Youtube :)



BLUSH (sound quality very bad)
