Sia

Deriving strength from this ear-worm, exemplary pop song by Sia.

Elastic Heart as a song is not to be under estimated, but is frequently misunderstood.

There was some controversy. Have a look.

Read article link and consider your feelings before deciding whether to watch the below video.

Return of The Field

I am not one to willing wish my life away. Especially given my academic preoccupation with mortality.

However, that has gone out of the window upon hearing the news that Axel Willner will be gracing the world with the fifth full-length The Field album, to be titled The Follower. It is to be released on April 1st and it simply cannot come soon enough.

Hopefully some tracks will appear before then. The sense of anticipation for this Mulrine at Pop Cultureddd is all too palpable.

A constant in my life.

Enjoy I Have The Moon, You Have The Internet from the second album Yesterday and Today.

Junior Boys

Eeeep!

Junior Boys are back!

The new album Big Black Coat is released on Friday 5th February. I am already obsessed.

The below album playlist might not hang around for long and may get pulled from YouTube so give it a listen and then buy it, you cheapskate! (She says with a sad bank balance looking back at her tell her not to buy any music)

Because Recollection


I stumbled across this on Twitter due to my living in the immediate present that social media creates, but also always the past.

The record company Because Music have put together, quote: "An interactive journey through 10 years of sound".

And what an interactive journey it is! I will not spoil all the highlights, but I would block out the next hour of your life to have a little play.

Because Recollection.

Applebottom

There was a point of 2015 where I seemed to be driving in the dark a lot. The glare of the street lights and the complete desolation that evening often brings were all the more heightened by this track. Usually on repeat.

Play it on whatever you own that produces the best quality sound. Preferably headphones, in the dark, and loudly. I also insist you listen to the end.

Applebottom may well be a promising producer if Let You is anything to go by.



There is a free download of the track via SoundCloud.

Shamir

One of my favourite people in the world seems to think I am "cool". She is great all respects, but probably somewhat misguided on that perception of me. But I will let her continue to think that.

So this is for her. Playing this tune gave me a bit of cocky bravado precisely when I needed it most yesterday.

Shamir is all the things you need in life. Catchy, soul-driven, electro fun and even has the all-important cowbell.

Be still my beating heart.
