High on My Headphones (November 2010)

It’s a cold, cold, November and I need something warm and lubricious on my headphones, so what better than new vocal sensation Rumer, with her decidely autumnal Seasons of My Soul. (The YouTube playlist for this post is here) Don’t know much about her, except that she is Anglo-Pakistani, has worked with Bacharach and that intelligent lounge sensibility oozes out of the album. Perfect aural mollycoddlying for when you come in from the cold and want to be warmed through, or early on a lazy Sunday morning. Aretha;   Continue reading

Mexico, like Chile, are quick and exciting, outplaying and out thinking France, and should qualify with Uruguay. Anyone notice how many Man City & Man Utd players have scored? A completely pointless red card decided Nigeria’s fate when they were leading, and Greece, but perhaps not coach Rehagel, discovered that if you attacked the other side they make mistakes. Korea were overwhelmed by Messi but did score, so must have hopes of qualifying; their final match with Greece could be a cracker. Todays Theme Tune is Tebe by Kottarashky from Bulgaria as we have have two Slavic teams playing today. The YouTube playlist of all these songs is on fredg136; Continue reading

We mostly work to live until

…the music breaks our smiles wide open. This is my current favourite track, Run, from my current favourite album, Contra, from the tardy, cold but smartly photo-snapping Vampire Weekend. I reckon Contra easily out performs the first album. This is live in the studio and not quite as dynamic as the album version but it looks better. Ok, let it Run; Continue reading
