"Don’t walk the plank like I did. You will be dispensed with, when you’ve become…inconvenient."

Currently Listening To:

Thom Yorke - Harrowdown Hill
From the Album - The Eraser

*Note: Thom Yorke is such a strange little man, but he makes magnificent music. I wish he would make another solo album as delicately inventive and thought-provoking as this.

MASHUP ALERT!

Currently Listening To:

TV on the Radio & Rihanna - New Cannonball Blues / Only Girl (In The World)
From the Albums - Nine Types of Light & Loud

*Note: I’m currently obsessed with the TV on the Radio song, New Cannonball Blues, from their new album Nine Types of Light. I can’t just play it once; I always hit repeat. That being said, I intended this post to be this song only, but I came across a brilliant mashup. I’m really picky about mashups, in fact I’ve never posted one, but this one is worthy. Whomever pieced it together has a great ear. Rihanna’s vocals mesh perfectly with this song. Albeit, Only Girl (In The World) is not my favorite Rihanna song, but I’m giving credit where credit is due. It’s a slick little mashup package, and I’m all about it today.

*Dedicating this post to Gerard Smith, bassist for TV on the Radio. He passed away on April 20th of lung cancer. May he rest in peace.

"I will sit right down waiting for the gift of sound and vision. And I will sing, waiting for the gift of sound and vision. Drifting into my solitude, over my head…"

Currently Listening To:

David Bowie - Sound And Vision
From the Album - Low

*Note: When my world doesn’t feel right, I listen to David Bowie. It’s been this way since I was 16. The very first time I heard Sound And Vision, I felt enlightened, relieved, comforted, and inevitably changed. I identify with this song and it has shaped who I am. It feels synonymous with the ebb and flow of my vital senses. While I have numerous favorite Bowie songs and albums, this song and this album, Low, will always hold a special place in my heart.

*I have attended a David Bowie show.

"This is the way, I always dreamed it would be. The way that it is, oh oh, when you are holding me."

Currently Listening To:

The Beach Boys - I Can Hear Music
From the Album 20/20

*Note: This song gives me goosebumps and shivers in the best way possible. It is my favorite Beach Boys tune, which also happens to be a cover of a Ronettes song.
