le vent nous portera

It's really windy whenever I bike during these spring days in Helsinki. Luckily it's not so dramatic as in Noir Désir's video :)

Noir Désir - Le Vent Nous Portera by Noirdesir-officiel

The video was directed by Alexandre Courtès and Jacques Veneruso.

Translucent ice blue vinyl, what else?

A solar-rosy mood directly from Down Under. Plus an inevitable pleasure to meet Dan Stiles who desinged deluxe version of the album Get It Together. Satisfaction guaranteed.

oh yeah, it's a sunny day!

LCMDF - Future Me OFFICIAL VIDEO from LCMDF on Vimeo.

Snow depth below 7 cm. It dropped suddenly during last two weeks from the simply vulgar and outrageous 57 cm snowdrifts! Biking, dusting off my sunglasses, breathing in. Yeah, yeah, it's a sunny day! Emma and Mia, two sisters from Helsinki, hiding behind the name Le Corps Mince de Françoise, make it feel so much more than ok. Releasing their works under the Heavenly Recordings label, LCMDF is scandinavian to the bone in its good pop sense. Well, it's no too slick. It's dusty enough without causing asthmatic reactions. And it's delightfully vapoury as their video (great work of Philipp Kässbohrer). So she says: good, weird songs should be appreciated. Who? Emma! She says it so right! I appreciate it a lot!

Hey retro girl!

There is a trick with new year's resolutions. In April we no longer remember them and they simply melt away together with the snow. So I had a look on my new year's resolution list. In fact, I was tricky enough to keep it as simple as it gets and there are only two words to be found there: GET FUNKY. It's actually very healthy and easy to stick to that resolution. Especially with such retro, soulful and funky tunes served by Jo Stance from Ricky-Tick Records, a hub of Finnish jazz sounds (Jukka Eskola, Lampela, Five Corner Quintet). So for those with tendencies to get grumpy cuz of a delayed arrival of spring in Finland: get over it and get funky!

in the morning

There is nothing more soothing like waking up on Sunday morning to the sounds of Graham's guitar. Isn't that astonishly beautiful? After leaving Blur, Graham has been successfully following its own artistic way and I've been practically stalking him. Even though, as he admits himself, he might have "released songs that perhaps should have stayed at home on the four track machine", my curiosity towards his works, truly adorable at certain points, will never cease. I guess the name of this blog is just a sufficient proof of my devotion towards Coxon and all his works. The best person to discribe hate-and-love musical/artistic aspects of his works is however Graham himself.

a sweet song from Budyn

An appriopriate joke-song for April Fools' day: deep & profound meaning ;)

muzyka jest wszędzie
i nawet tam, gdzie myślisz, że jej nie ma
a ona właśnie tam jest

music is everywhere
even there where you think there's no sound
it is just right there
