I'm going to play Trouble Books http://open.spotify.com/album/4nKKyr0XrbJriHtamonhg9
I tryed to listen to some sunny day music earlier with M83's Saturdays = Youth to give it another chance after a long brake but its still as boring as ever unfortunatly.
RSD - Good Energy
Nice warm blissed out bass vibes.
That video is sweet as well, nice and sunny
As for M83, I don't get it at all, very boring indeed, I even saw him live once and that didn't make it feel one bit better
its a big cheesey bombastic beast but the latest one is just lame unfortunatly.
Rob Smith is a legend.
Got some Quest on now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4M99WfqsUk
but I can't stand Before The Dawn Heals Us, precisely because the bombast never ends. Every song has that same enormous, Eastenders drum fill.
Camera Obscura's Let's Get Out of This Country or Beach House's Devotion.
from Camera Obscura, I've never really listened to Beach House actually, but Let's Get Out of This Country is spot on for on evening such as this
Dusty in Memphis
when I was making this playlist filled with songs from 1998 for my girlfriend. It's sheer brilliance
It _is_ brilliant. And perfect for this occasion.
well personally i'd hit a load of trouble books, talons, then maybe some guitarists like fahey, basho, basho-junghans. maybe some bonnie prince billy, six organs or joanna newsom, rather drag centric there. right now i've put on sparklehorse for hte first time in years, its lovely. anyway today i was inside all day reading up for an essay not sitting in the sun :(, just telling myself couple more months and thats it.
I've just switched to DJ Food - Kaleidoscope, bit of jazzy hip hop
Hope you reading was nice, what will your essay be on? I read some Deleuze in the park and felt very pretentious...
and with the end so close its all a bit demoralising. this is the tile "Explain why drug prohibitions were interpreted as signs of 'modernity' during the late Qing and early republican periods." one half of my course this year is about the opium trade in china. hopefully will be able to get most of the words done today.
I'm all about that issue of modernity in my studies, but then in good old europe
but i go to Soas, the school of oriental and african studies, so everything's slanted that way. anyway had the day off yesterday better get back to the last thousand words. but i'm more of a classicist! just theres one classical course this year for middle eastern history students and it didn't take my fancy, hence i shifted over to chinese history.
I'd never heard of Bussetti, listening on myspace now, it's laidback and has got a bit of a ska influence going on in Singasong I hear. Sad to read they are no more. Ska is well sunny, but more to accompany a bit of rowdiness while your in the park.
I actually listened to some Nina later in the evening
It In People.
