Valentina

Valentina

today i discovered the music of London based Italian-English singer Valentina. i know literally nothing about her (google has failed me, i guess) but you can buy her EP Wolves, which is out now on iTunes, and also listen to snippets of it on her label’s soundcloud page. watch the videos…

Miss Moss // Lost in the Light

Lost in the Light

i thought i’d offer a music mix in exchange for the fact that my posting has been patchy the past two days. it is a bit of a reflective, mid-year mix – mostly pretty down tempo, and featuring two of my favourite artists who are releasing new work. namely Goldfrapp…

Miss Moss // We Went Wild Music Mix

We Went Wild

thank you for helping pick my new logo yesterday (and peeps on facebook and pinterest). the overwhelming vote went towards what you’ll see above – also my personal choice! to celebrate, and say thanks, i have made a new music mix. the cover art was inspired by Africa, which i have been…

Lorde

Lorde

in the past week i’ve received two emails telling me about 16 year old New Zealand singer Lorde (thanks Holly and Sarah). this girl is good. and the more i listened to her music the more i thought, damn what was i doing at 16? i was making mixtapes, not…

Miss Moss Music Mix: This Is My Jam

This Is My Jam

okay okay, i give in. here’s a new music mix for you! yesterday was a public holiday in south africa, which means a lot of people round here are taking a bit of a long weekend… so i made use of the down time to catch up on new music…

London Grammar

well i promised that i would be sharing more music on this here blog (still contemplating those music mixes…) so let me introduce you to London Grammar, if you haven’t heard of them already. they are a trio from London with the amazing Hannah on vocals. there are only have…

Al Bairre

it seems fitting that my first music post of the year is about a newish South African band called Al Bairre. these guys are based in Cape Town too, so I suppose that makes it doubly awesome. Al Bairre is made up of 5 talented youngsters – Tom Kotze, Julia Johnson, Tessa…

Playlist / Painting

Rose Blake is a brilliant illustrator whose new portfolio website i was perusing when i noticed a link inviting you to buy her paintings, leading me to a little project she calls Playlist / Painting. basically Rose makes a painting and then also compiles a playlist to go along with…

Devil Fool

simply LOVE the music video for Devil Fool by Be Brave Benjamin directed by Pablo Maestres. so beautifully shot, and an awesome concept… it’s strangely fun to watch people teetering on the precipice of disaster. above: behind the scenes photos by Lúa Ocaña video credits: Direction: Pablo Maestres / Production…

Sydney Wayser

Sydney Wayser

a wonderful reader, Heather, put me onto to Brooklyn based songstress Sydney Wayser, whose new album Bell Choir Coast is, simply put, track after track of RAD. have a listen to Potions below (the video premiered on Time entertainment last week) and be sure to buy her entire album here.

The Parlour Suite

The Parlour Suite

The Parlour Suite sent me an email to tell me about their new album Everyone’s Looking which is dropping this coming weekend. i can’t tell you how flattered i am to be approached by talented people making good music. The Parlour Suite is the surf-pop project, formed by Mpls (Minneapolis) husband-wife…

Feel It All Around

A Sleep & A Forgetting

Islands has long been one of my favourite bands (Nick Thorburn’s side project Human Highway is also one of my very favourite things to listen to) – so i was very excited to hear the new album A Sleep & A Forgetting. it has been on repeat ever since. well,…

Beatenberg

couldn’t find a great pic of them so i just made this up continuing with my music sharing, i thought i’d introduce you to Beatenberg – a band from good ol’ Cape Town, South Africa. if you’re a local you have probably heard of these guys and may have been…

First Aid Kit

i thought i’d try to talk about music more regularly on here, instead of just resorting to the music mixes every month. here’s someone you need to listen to – First Aid Kit. their new album The Lion’s Roar was released a couple of weeks ago. these photos were taken by Neil Krug, a fantastic photographer…
