Hunger and thirst  →

Hunger and thirst, the two words come with a negative connotation. What if, just what if, we thought of hunger and thirst in a positive light? The light that drives your passion, your life, every little step you take each day to achieve that goal. What if we hunger after our dreams and thirst after the stars. Just what if…


Coldplay- A Sky Full of Stars 

i really enjoy the beginning of this song, it started to give me chills a bit. There is always a but  though, right? My only complaint is why do people feel the urge or the pressure to always feed popular culture? I understand breaking out and trying something new, getting a new thrill within your musicianship, going into the unknown. I also understand being liked and money from major labels have a huge part within this business as well, cause when you get to that type of level it really is just a business. There is a difference within all this when it is completely unknown, not when every other major artist is doing the same thing.  Don’t get me wrong i enjoy EDM here and there and completely appreciate most of the artists for their craft.  It’s their craft though, let them do it. What happening to songs like Yellow and Warning Sign? Chris Martin has an amazing voice to be able to be featured on EDM style tracks but don’t bring one out as your own. I guess now days the producer has alot more control of your music than the writer himself (in this case that would be avicci). All in all i really enjoy the song.  Though i’m definitley looking forward to hearing a stripped down version.  


The Nutcracker Suite by Brian Setzer Orchestra on Spotify →

Nothin beats Brian setzer’s arrangement of the nutcracker suite. Brian setzer is easily my most favorite guitarist of all time not only because of his ability but because of how he learned the instrument an played music for the love it. He wasn’t classically trained he was in love w music and wanted to gain more knowledge. Christmas is coming and this album will be playing a lot.


i love opening songs of albums, well…. i love the opening songs of albums where bands actually care about them. It’s the opening song, what are you going to say? what’s gonna hook me? The simplistic nature of this fun little tune is not only what does it for me. Frightenned Rabbit has always been known to me as nothing but poets. The lyrics are straight forward, honest, in your face, and to the point.
“I am just like the rest of them; sorry selfish trying to improve”

Gold by Wake Owl on Spotify →

"Didn’t you find love or salvation in what they do?" The opening line of this beautiful song by wake owl. The thing that I love about it is the word salvation. The placing and choice of the word. A lot of people don’t really come to that word when they are in search of love or thinking of love.
We are all trying to so called be “saved” by something or someone. If it’s a girl, a higher entity, the outdoors, anything, we look for love or to be saved. Remember though my friends, before we can find Salvation or love we must do the same. So be selfish, save yourself.

Thots.


very beautiful yet eery fog this morning in seattle. This song instantly popped into my head. I guess it goes to say that reading Colin Meloys ‘Under Wildwood’ would do that to ya. Happy tuesday everyone! keep on rockin in the free world!

It Will Follow the Rain by The Tallest Man On Earth on Spotify →

Yes this is completely cliche, it’s raining in Seattle and this song is about rain. There is more to this song though; the grittiness, the lo-fi production, the raspy voice, the plucking of the strings all of it.

With all of that said most of those descriptions would consider an all around poor product but there is a peacefulness within this concoction of a song which drew me towards the tallest man on earth and with that my friends I will definitely follow the rain…. (Had to leave on a cliche note #srynotsry?)

P.s. I’m back I hope, and writing more; till next time kiddos.
