Oxy Swag Got Me Sad

tumblr_manyuzsAZS1r05jkho1_500Hey cool humans-
I’m just now remembering that I’ve definitely posted this here many months ago, but this is a beautiful but unfinished EP called Five Weeks by a certain lad by the name of Dali Mcdonald and his other really talented friends.
I’ll tell a dumb lil story real quick- I found two songs from this collection- Oxy Swag and Blue Eyes and Black Jeans- via a friend, reposted them on soundcloud, then probably posted them here upon falling in love with them. THEN, my OTHER friend Violet who was studying abroad in Italy MET frickin’ Dali himself in the exchange program she was in (!!!!?!?? still weirds me out).. Somehow Violet found out that he was the one I had recently posted about, and ALAS- a new friendship was forged from thousands of miles away. Thanks girl, you win a lot of points.

So that’s how I discovered Five Weeks. And here it is, in all its glory. Enjoy. Hi Dali. Hi Violet.

❤ ❤ Lucie ❤ ❤

p.s. I just noticed that sick little note in the description of the post on bandcamp shouting me out. swerve. bye.

Hey friends. I bring to you a man by the name of Sampha. You will probably recognize his INCREDIBLY SUAVE AND CALMING voice from the band SBTRKT with whom he has collaborated with many times. Check out this video of him where he delivers a very personal and heart warming interview to the audience of blog Yours Truly and then proceeds to wow the viewers with his song called Indecision.

Volcano Choir

Released a slim 11 days ago, Volcano Choir has contributed their newest music video to the world!! Volcano Choir is a somewhat unknown band compared to lead singer, Justin Vernon’s other band, BON IVER.   As some of you may know, Bon Iver has stopped performing together permanently giving Vernon time to focus on Volcano Choir’s upcoming album “Repave.”  I didn’t look away from this video once during its time on my screen.  There’s something exceptionally intriguing about it.  Maybe the dramatic difference in images when the lights go on and off.  Regardless, it has quite a psychedelic aspect.  Although the sound is a little different than Bon Iver’s songs (slightly more dramatic), I find crazy comfort in hearing Justin’s voice within any song.  Enjoy.
