SLOW MOTION SUNDAY #5

I've been away for so long, but look at me I always come back and I always start my articles by saying that I haven't been here for a long time. So let's break the apologetic cycle right now - here I am, my glittery pockets filled with slow and enticing songs perfect to relax and a mixtape of love. Thank you for stopping by if you still do ♥   Cheers my dears. x // The beautiful artwork was made by Amalie Termannsen

SLOW MOTION SUNDAY #4

The slow motion sunday is back with two (four) talented ladies. I swear it's not something I do on purpose, to only share music with girls, but it is what it is.     // BONUS TRACK This amazing cover of Drake's Preach. Way-ay up, I feel blessed.

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, BUT I'M FALLING SHORT

Let's take a sec to acknowledge how bad I am at following through with this blog. I still won't close it down, I'm way too nostalgic. I regret deleting the skyblog one, some days I would love to flicker through it, see how bad my grammar was, but feel the passion that was burning under my fingers at the time, you could feel how feverish I was when typing articles at 4 am, pleading for people to listen to Amy Winehouse, Adele or The Strokes. Some people ask me why I don't blog that much anymore because, well, this blog was a big part... [Lire la suite]

SOMETIMES, YOU LOSE.

  some nights I wish I could go back in lifenot to change shit, just to feel a couple things twice   Drake dropped a mixtape (the day before Valentine's day, such a Drake move, innit?) and it was a blessing. My own mixtape ended up having 3 Drake-related songs and it wasn't even on purpose. I discovered that the term "dark pop" existed and it made me happy. Glitter goth at heart. Saw Jessie Ware yesterday night. Obsessed with her. She's such a Queen. Talented, funny and fucking generous. Hope to be as good as she is... [Lire la suite]

SLOW MOTION SUNDAY #3

Touch of your skin, blurring my vision Seeing the same film again Closer you pull me under the table Sign of how this might end To be fair, I don't really know if this track qualifies as a slowmotion sunday/ morning hazy anthem, but I sure listened to it really late at night and again in the morning. I love everything about this song by George Maple. The voice, the production (courtesy of Flume). Everything in it is mesmerizing and haunting. Browsing through old articles, I sure have a thing for these kinds of songs, a... [Lire la suite]

SLOW MOTION SUNDAY #2

Working late cause she never finished school She ain't a fool, she just didn't like it But he don't mind, she's his everything "Anything for you"     There's something that makes me very emotional when listening to Tobias Jesso Jr.'s "True Love". I can't really pinpoint what because I think it's everything - the amazing lyrics that tell a simple yet warm and endearing love story, this intro and outro played on that old and out of tune-ish piano that gives the song an old magical vibe, like an echo from the past. And... [Lire la suite]

SLOW MOTION SUNDAY #1

Ce matin, on m'a réveillé avec une aria de l'opéra MacBeth. Je n'ai rien contre Verdi, mais c'est franchement pas la façon dont j'aime me réveiller un dimanche matin. Je suis au ralenti et j'ai la migraine qui pointe le bout de son nez (pas de gueule de bois, je ne suis pas sortie hier soir, je reste l'éternelle mamie des internets. J'ai simplement une gueule de bois face à la vie, communément appelée "la fatigue".) J'ai donc décidé de mettre en place les Slow Motion Sundays. Pour ce premier petit article, deux petites pépites... [Lire la suite]

WE'LL RUN AWAY AS FAST AS WE CAN

Sofia ran away, once again,like she used to, like she always does.The real surprise will come the day she stays.   L'art de la fugue se retrouve par deux fois dans cette mixtape et peut-être qu'un jour j'expliquerai mon attachement personnelle à la runaway parce qu'elle me colle à la peau, comme un leitmotiv, un thème qui se répèterait encore et encore dans différentes versions. Beaucoup de voix de robots dans cette mixtape nocturne.

I'LL BE YOUR JAZZ SINGER, YOU'LL BE MY CULT LEADER

"Comment savoir si on est cinglé ou non ?Je cause toujours toute seule.Je me rappelle des choses qui ne sont jamais arrivéeset j’en oublie qui le sont." "Queen Speed" - Stewart O’Nan     Ecouter Degré Zéro de Grand Blanc en boucle à 1h du matin, comme une évidence. C'est le genre de morceau que j'aurais bien vu dans la BO d'un Xavier Dolan, peut-être parce que ça me fait un peu penser à The Knife. La froideur, la noirceur et la violence sûrement. Elan de la mélan, de la mélan, de la mélancolie.   ... [Lire la suite]

IN PARIS PEOPLE THINK IN FRENCH

"You're not my Yoko Ono"You said those words to me (Lisa Germano - Lovesick)       It's late and I'm working tomorrow and last week is still a blur, this week-end is a blur and next week probably will be a blur too. Reality is so fuzzy sometimes that I'm afraid it will vanish between my fingers before I can grasp it. Fire may save you, my friend.
