I am currently looking at…

JOYWAVE – “SOMEBODY NEW”

JoyWave

Sorry, we are currently not accepting your version of reality.

KANYE WEST – “ALL DAY”

at the BRIT Awards.

Current ruler: Mr. West.

 

NICOLAS JAAR – “THE COLOR OF POMEGRANATES”

Currently under the spell of:  Nicolas Jaar’s great soundtrack to the visual allegories of medieval Armenian poet troubadours, as portrayed in cult Russian classic film “The color of pomegranates“.

Tracklist:

Garden of Eden – Construction – Pass the Time – Survival – The Fool and his Harem – Being and Nothingness – Near Death – Beasts of this Earth – Fall into Time – Folie à Deux – Screams at the Edge of Dawn – Divorce – Three windows – Touristas
Shame – Tower of Sin – Kapital – Volver – Spirit – Muse

CURRENT GRIP ON THINGS

PROTOMARTYR – “WANT REMOVER”

Currently welded to my tympanic membrane: Protomartyr. “Want Remover” was my favourite song of 2014 and I’m happy to see it ‘getting the video treatment’ as they say in the business (and by ‘the business’ I mean music bloggers happily settling for clichés). Anyway: Protomartyr. They are really, really good, ok? You are buying their album on Bandcamp, yes? Ok. Settled.

BLONDIE – “SUNDAY GIRL” (1979)

Current feel-good song: Blondie. No reason, really.

Last year, in June, I stood next to Deborah Harry at the reception counter of the Ace Hotel in London. She was wearing a black and white T-shirt that said: “SELFIE”. No photos were taken of this event.
