While I was walking back to my dorm last night, exhausted after a day in London, coming back to write a paper about Gothic architecture, and then going to a talk by a British city councillor, it occurred to me that OH MY GOODNESS I’M STILL IN ENGLAND. (which I have been for four months now, but you know.)
But seriously, it was a lovely British evening, with the crescent moon peeking between the clouds – and out of nowhere, this tune popped into my head. Which is perfect, because Jamie Woon is from England as well, compounding my feeling of Britishness! “Waterfront” is one of my favourites but I really like “Lady Luck” and “Night Air” as well.
> perfect ending to a brilliant day
I’ve been writing a lot of essays lately and in my perpetual search for appropriately calming/study-friendly music playlists on Youtube, Majestic “radio station” has come to the rescue! With over 600 tracks so far and more posted practically every day, there’s plenty to keep my ears happy. Also, pretty pictures never hurt.
“The Song” by Stimming was a surprise amongst the more straightforward songs about love and good times, and I really enjoy it for that reason. Try to listen all the way through, it’ll make you think :)
May I Walk With You - Star Slinger
This song. Has been stuck in my head. ALL DAY. all day. It is amazing. But listen at your own risk.
If you like this one also be sure to check out his remix of sister wife.
Also, I’ve tried forever to figure out where this vocal sample is from? Still at a loss. Anyone know?
“Teenage” performed by Veronica Falls acoustically in Porto, Portugal (in-studio version here). Tuned into KSPC the other day and DJ Shmal was so nice to fulfill my request for her favourite new songs in the station. She said this one reminded her of my show and I totally agree, it would fit right into one of my sets :) cute and catchy, and also I really like their polka dot shirts!
whoa whoa WHOA, Kisses is releasing a new album called Kids in LA on May 14?!?!?! brb kicking myself for being so out of the loop, this is amazing news!!
Found this on the bottom of some UK food packaging :)
