dreams, cont.

Seabear member Sóley Stefánsdóttir released a solo album in 2011 and it appears to have taken a full year for it to float over from Iceland into my California ears. We Sink was worth the wait; I can only describe it as a boozy Ray Bradbury nightmare. But in a good way...  Sit with that.

 I love the simplicity of Theater Island, the last song on the album

dream state

Did I not mention? I saw Apparat a couple weeks ago. He played with a live band which made it all the more mesmerizing. Incredibly powerful performance.

the young girl and the sea

Grimes is slaughtering the music scene with her latest album, Visions. Mostly because the music is totally radical, but also because the little lady who is Grimes, Claire Boucher from Montreal, is just so goddamn cool.

Exhibit A: As legend has it, Claire and a companion once built a 20 foot houseboat with plans to sail down the Mississippi River to New Orleans, a la Huckleberry Finn. A faulty motor and the Minnesota PD prevented them from getting too far, but what a weirdly wonderful adventure! Full story here.

Live sesh in SF last year.

mental oasis

Just when I had almost given up for the day, Lykke Li flashed on my radar, joining The Deportees on their delicious new track.

god bless the Swedes.

Wishing I could be celebrating my beautiful momma's birthday with her and the rest of the clan! I'll compensate with chocolate and a glass of red, in her honor.


This song always conjures up images of cold winds and warm blankets.
