The first time i heard Sigur Ros i was at a friends place a few years ago and he made me sit and watch their live DVD…it was just amazing i had never heard anything like it before in my life..mayb..pretty close to life changing…(well definately goose bump worthy) They are Icelandic and are the only group i can listen to where the magic of it all is not understand the lyrics or story behind it.. but still manages to be the most soul touching sound you will ever hear.. This is one of my favourite songs but this one comes in a pretty close second.. And how adorable is the video makes me want to jump in some puddles..So close the door or just take a few minutes to watch this… Trust me, if they aren’t already in your ipod.. they will be soon!! XX
Although not a new band on the scene i still play Tame Impala like they are!! They have such an amazing sound almost a mix of Pink Floyd and Beatles almost…but still pretty hard to classify them really… Solitude is Bliss is one of my fav songs of theirs but you also have to check out half glass full too…ohh so good!!! I hope you are all having a fab Monday.. and your New Year was amazing!!! Remember the giveaway gets drawn tomorrow so get in quick if you already haven’t.. XX (Edit: i swapped out the video to another song of theirs… i watched the other video the whole way through just now…and it disturbed me a little (towards the end) but this one is just as good… mayb even better) xx
Its already Monday.. i cant believe that Christmas is already over and New Years is on its way.. i hope you all had a safe and family filled Chrissy… As usual i have been listening to alot of indie/pop over the week its just such a mood lifter and great for lounging in the blowup pool at the front of our house sipping cocktails!! So i thought id post a bit of Seabellies another fab Australian band.. I hope it lifts you out of your Monday blahs and gets you off the couch from nursing your Christmas bellies XX (I have a fair bit of running to do this week to make up for it)!!!
Along with their sexy dapper style and beards The National are seriously talented and Matt Berninger’s voice makes me totally swoon!!! I completely get lost in the lyrics and want to stay in bed with the rain beating down listening to them all day!!! (sigh) if only that was possible… I have a bit of an emotional connection with them now as i was driving home feeling down one day and they came on the radio.. And it totally forced me to snap out of my gloomy mood…It was like love at first listen… Am i the only one who forms weird relationships with music? haha I know that sounds unusual but its really funny that every band i love has a different part of me..formed at different times in my life and i know how i was feeling or what i was doing when i first heard them!!! (or mayb its about time i just went on a date or something)..
Hope your weekend was fabulous!!! I’ll be back tomorrow with an outfit post XX
Definately one of my favourite bands at the moment i have them on high rotation in my Ipod… I love songs that make me want to play them so loud my car speakers start to shake (and the singer sort of reminds me a little of Mazzy Star)..They are definately setting the bar for Australian music at the moment…give them a listen their whole album is pretty much perfect.. Happy Monday XX
