+ Music on my mind #2


Devil’s Spoke – Laura Marling

Laura Marling may not have had a string of Number One hits, but it’s her understated success with critics and music lovers which suggests her hauntingly beautiful music will be around for decades to come. I have only listened to Devil’s Spoke, the first release from I Speak Because I Can, a handful of times but it is permanently bouncing around in my mind – I love its energy and the video is stunning!

Rainbowarriors – CocoRosie

If you look hard you can find a
Rainbow trail it’s deep inside ya
Fear not you’re a rainbowarrior
Golden light on everything gleaming
[…] Rainbow love awaits us
With hearts of love and tears

Quirky background sounds and feelgood lyrics to Rainbowarriors make this one of my faves!

I ♥ Pop

Lately, the first time I hear a pop song I lament its shittiness and wonder how on earth they manage to sell any copies at all. I had this thought with both Shakira’s She Wolf and Cheryl Cole’s Three Words after my first listen.

But something overtakes my sanity and all of a sudden I find myself pressing the repeat button, loving them in their three minutes’ worth of cheese-tastic pop!
