Even if you are not familiar with the band Lips, you might have heard of its founder and lead-singer Stephanie Brown for her work as a musical director. And if you have ever seen an album cover with a child wearing a huge pair of lips on their head- then you have most likely come across Lips before. I am being completely serious about this, the band represents itself in covers and videos as a child wearing a huge pair of lips. Peak creativity, we can all go home.Read more
“Shooting Star is largely about how quickly people’s light can be extinguished, no matter how brilliant it was burning at the time.”
This is all you need to know about the artist I want to talk to you about right now. Because is this not what great Tumblr quotes and journal entries are all about?
With her recent release “No Other Like You“ Kate Bollinger has yet again proved her talent and songwriting skills. After her single Talk About It and her EP I Don’t Wanna Lose , which she released earlier this summer,
No Other Like You is fits in well with the rest of her songs, but it still manages to stand out: It is more acoustic, with a simple guitar, bass and drum combo and less of her usual tech-y sounds – very refreshing, even if you enjoy the rest of her discography.
Bollinger’s calm voice combined with the smoothness of the instruments in the background makes me want to lie on gras and fall into a light slumber on a sunny fall day. A definite must for every fall playlist.
Many of my German friends say that they do not like any german music because they consider it to be generic and boring. And if you talk about the music commercial radios play – I agree. But boy, there is some goooood German music out there. One of my current favorites is Ilgen-Nur from Hamburg.Read more
If you are in need of some good contemporary 80s inspired pop I have just the thing for you. Mancunian musician Abbie Ozard is currently hitting all the big Spotify Indie playlists.
Having written music since the sweet age of 14, she has recently been discovered by big names like BBC’s Huw Stephens and even played festivals like Neighbourhood Festival or BBC Introducing.
I was first introduced to Fleetwood Mac by my Mum, who was obsessed with their song “Oh Diane” from their album Mirage, which led to me listening to that particular album by Fleetwood Mac casually for a really long time. My Mum even owned the album on record, so when she gave me her collection I grew more and more familiar with Fleetwood Mac, however, I never really listened to any other of their records (I might have heard “Dreams” a couple of times before, but who knows)
But, one day as luck would have it, I stumbled across Rumours on Spotify (or Apple Music, whatever I was using at that time), gave it a listen and haven’t been the same ever since.
Rumours is still Fleetwood Mac’s most popular album to this date and Dreams was their only song to become a Number 1 hit.
