Bowerbirds - Northern Lights

Efterklang - 4AD sessions

As previously mentioned, I have a big soft spot for Efterklang.

this next session from 4AD is perfect snow day listening - dreamy and soothing and potentially spirit lifting regardless of the foulness outside.

dog days

Florence And The Machine by Ben Rayner from Ben Rayner on Vimeo.

Florence is like a mythical creature...

the sweetness

Assembly Fall '08 catalog.

amazingly still looks fresh today

pretty pretty pretty girl

you can't tell me Mick isn't amazing

it's also the song that whenever my older sister catches Beast of Burden on the radio she calls me to tell me tales of when I was a baby and she would sing this to me

not your traditional lullaby but then I'm told I was taught to shimmy before walking so clearly they had rock and roll plans for me

stretch that skull-cover and smile

had Elizabeth Weinberg's winter mixtape on repeat

check it

good time girl

Bake Sale

slow dance

Sarah sent me this band, Bake Sale, yesterday their little ditty Prom Song is the soundtrack to this picture.

close to home

this bookcase arrangement is pretty darn similar to what I have going on at home

except it's edited down and far better looking

I smell a weekend project....

trouble books

these dreamy songs by Trouble Books are lush and wistful

The Guardian says - to put it another way: imagine a Daniel Johnston equally obsessed with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and Burt Bacharach.

available from Bark and Hiss

Frightened Rabbit - Nothing Like You

I saw an alternate video for this song yesterday and it broke my heart with it's mediocrity.

Actually, it isn't mediocre, it's just crap.

But having seen this one, I'm presuming the other is just the "radio friendly" version, whatever the equivalent is for your eyes.

New MTV friendly. Or something.

So please don't go find that one because it's going to make the song seem rubbish and it's not a bad song and they're an amazing band.

It's been a long time since I've paid attention to French Connection, but this new campaign by Fallon London has truly re-branded this label.

Human Chain

not that Weiden & Kennedy know how to make something bad but this is particularly good

perhaps because it uses one of my favourite songs, Ali in the Jungle by The Hours. That video is worth another watch too...

Plan B - She Said

this just saved my day

Alessi Brothers - Seabird

my my this is very good

by William Hoffman

but there's one moment missing from his original in the youtube version, so I recommend watching it in full here

what are thumbs good for anyway?

i did myself in

when I recently took off the bandage from my run in with a papercutter I found... well, most of my thumb.

partial thumb

at least white sheets make everything less painful looking...

three amigos

I anticipate the Marlboro man making a pretty big comeback soon

to soothe the soul

I came in today to find I'd been gifted one of the gorgeously packaged bars of chocolate from Mast Brothers Chocolate.

My friends are good friends indeed.

It's going to take a lot of effort to break into it... but then again, it is dark chocolate & fleur de sel so undoubtedly it's going to call to me like a siren.

This was in my inbox this morning - it's part of the promos for Spike Jonze's latest short film "I'm Here" that was recently screened at Sundance.
