Music Mix!


do you want to know what i have been listening to for the past 3 months? Enya. a whole lot of Enya. my baby loves it. or at least i think he does, because he sleeps like a, well, baby when it’s playing. and sleep is precious. now that we’re at the 3 month mark things are a whole lot easier in the sleeping department, but i still default to the Celtic queen when it’s his naptime…

March Music Mix


that’s me up there, navigating March like a tightrope walker. only 3 more weeks and i’ll be on maternity leave, we will move into our new house and soon after welcome the little guy. and, breathe… never mind all that, here’s a music mix! you can listen to it on Spotify…

I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it.

The 1975

The 1975 are a band from the UK whose latest album I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It was released last week. you may recognise their album covers, which feature the band’s name in a gorgeous neon sign (that is actually how i first…

October Music Mix by Miss Moss


photo by Allan Grant for LIFE, 1947. damn, i actually wanted to post this new music mix on Friday, but somehow we had a seemingly city-wide internet blackout that lasted a couple of days. that sounds ridiculous, right? that’s cause IT IS. well now you can kick off your week with a…

Miss Moss September music mix


September is the best! it’s my birthday month, and the weather is always mild and wonderful, and it’s my birthday month! it always feels like a time of new beginnings for me, as if there’s been a palpable shift that we are gearing up toward the end of the year. it’s just my…


Carrie & Lowell

i just had to let you know that Carrie & Lowell, the new album by Sufjan Stevens, is streaming right now over at NPR, The Guardian and Pitchfork. it is a wonderful, wonderful album – i have already played it twice today.

Miss Moss: My Favourite Albums of 2014

Best Albums of 2014

i must apologise for dropping the ball on Mid Week Distraction this week, it pained me to do it – but things have been too crazy round here. there are only 7 working days left of the year in my personal calendar, and of course EVERYONE wants their projects finished before…



i know it’s not August YET. but on friday it will be, and today i can’t stop thinking about it. August. A U G U S T. so, here’s a music mix to celebrate!



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…

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…

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…


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…
