Run through the moss on high heels

Fever Ray – When I Grow Up. From the 2009 self-titled album. Fever Ray is the solo project of The Knife’s Karin Dreijer Andersson. Listen to the lyrics, they get weirder and weirder, especially that bit about plants…

Love, love is a verb. Love is a doing word.

Everybody knows the awesome song Teardrop by Massive Attack. Today I was listening to a couple of covers of it. Ofcourse there’s the cover by Jose Gonzalez:

and then I discovered this one which I love (maybe just as much as the original!..)

I would put this version of the song to a dramatic funeral scene and from about 1:37 in to the song is when the scene would change to show all the flashbacks/ great moments and memories of that persons life… Any thoughts?

Eurovision 2010

I’d almost forgotten about the songs from Eurovision this year when i stumbled across Ukraine’s song again. I wanted this one to win because it was the only song in the competition that actually meant something.

“Yes the message is so real. Don’t turn all the earth to stone. Because because because, this is your home.”

And I like her voice too! So here it is:

ALyosha – Sweet People

She is very dedicated to the environment and has her website here:

Check out this song too

Jimmy Eat World – Chase This Light

I haven’t heard so much of Jimmy Eat World since their awesome album Bleed American/Jimmy Eat World, however I’ve been listening to their album Chase This Light from 2007 and it is sweeeet. Here’s some tracks from that.


Gotta Be Somebody’s Blues

Electable (Give It Up)

Carry You

Always Be

Apart from this album and their Bleed American/Jimmy Eat World, I’m not as keen on their other albums. But I’m really excited for their new album Invented which is set to be released in September this year.

She will love you like a fly will never love you, again

Massive Attack – Paradise Circus. From their 2010 album Heligoland. My favourite track on their latest album for sure. The more I listen to Heligoland the more I like it. The video clip for this song was done using images from the 2006 film The Fall directed by Tarsem Singh. Seeing as the movie is so visually amazing I’ve included the trailer for that too.
