I’ve mentioned my friend Alex Naser-Hall numerous times on my blog before, and he continues to guide me in the expansion of my iTunes library. He has delicious taste in music (yes, delicious - I’m still eating breakfast) and this chick Denai Moore is no exception.
Musical Monday friends - this song is gorgeous.
Musical Monday pump up jam to start the week off right.
Since returning from my 1.5 year stateside spell, it seems my Canadian pride has only gotten stronger.
Purity Ring are a Canadian music duo from Montreal, and their track, Fineshrine, is the perfect blend of sparkle and flavour.
When you wake up in the morning, see a crisp layer of frost on the ground, and hear the radio say it’s 3C outside, you know
summer is over autumn has arrived!
Here’s to the leaves changing colours, sweaters & scarves, hot drinks in big mugs, those socks with the red line around the top and everything in between.
I’m working on a written piece about a unique experience I recently had involving some very generous hosts :D
Needless to say, after eating I was full.to.the.brim, making this track incredibly fitting in (musically) describing my experience.
DC’s newest home venue iClhalk swung open its doors for the first time a month ago and welcomed local Maryland band kindlewood to the stage.
It was a surreal, intimate evening as beautiful souls congregated under the twinkling lights, having travelled as far north as Connecticut, as far west as Fairfax VA and everywhere in between.
kindlewood is a strikingly simplistic trio, made up of high school sweethearts Galen & Kelci Smith and dear friend, Jamison Lyman. They emerged onto the musical terrain in November 2010 with their debut EP, I Don’t Believe in Ghosts, and have only continued to grow with the release of their full-length album, Desiderium, in May of 2011.
Each song that Saturday night was led by Kelci’s soft yet rich voice and from the moment she opened her mouth to sing, you opened yours as well…in awe. The night began with Mon Ami, an invitation that regardless of whether we’d known each other for weeks, months, years or even just a few hours,
we are all friends.
Their third song of the night, Wilderness, swept you off your feet, and even in the hussle and bussle of the District, kindlewood’s crisp harmonies combined with a magnificent, yet subtle, accordion hum left you feeling, or rather truly believing, a peak outside the window would reveal a beautiful mountain range and the morning break they so eloquently sang of.
Reverie was definitely the crowd favourite with Kelci’s ukelele playing was elegantly effortless and the audience members were encouraged to clap and sing along; it was an enchanting musical experience that you never wanted to end.
Not being in the city this weekend, surrounded by clear blue sky up above & picture perfect water at my feet, met me with great calm & sweet serenity.
Even without any words, this song effortlessly captures what the past 48 hours have been and is perfectly in tune on this fabulous (Canadian) holiday Musical Monday.
back to California please and thank you
to start off, let’s just keep it simple.
