Eyes & Forks

Recently I got sent the link to new Nora Jones song, I was kind of sceptical, as the last time I had really listened to her, was when I was in Grade7 (2003) and also the sender is a Ginger haired person. But it turned out to be a really cool song and the lyrics are oh so catchy. So here it is Miriam.

This also reminded me of Florence & the Machine's Girl with one eye (which I like better, but only because I love Florry).

I will be away on a 10day trip to the Theewaterskloofdam, teaching 25 16year olds how to sail. Yes, I would very much appreciate all your postive vibes. [Random Blogging will continue after]

Your Eyes & Ears #8

I am absolutely loving KONGOS at the moment. Especially their latest single ESCAPE.
Have a look and listen here.

Also recently watched Country Strong and heard this song, I fell in love and have been listening to it every.single. day since. It is beautiful and makes me feel like a school girl with the possibility of a new love interest. Give in to Me by Garrett Hedlund & Leighton Meester (not a fan of her, I watch some of her clips for a giggle every now and then)

And PHILLIP PHILLIPS. I love this man so much. (this is the second post he features) I LOVE his single, called HOME. And also watch the bit where he WON American Idol and cried. 'Cause crying men are beatiful. I just cried again while watching this AND THIS We've Got Tonight. How SEXY?!


The Very Wicked

a While back, I told you  the very sad news about Pretty Blue Guns taking a 'break'. But there is some good news in all this sadness!

Andre Leo (Vocalist for the Guns) & Lucas Swart (Drummer for the guns) has teamed up with Calvin Syderfin, Dominque Thaysen and Dirk van Tonder and started a new project, The Very Wicked.

These guys are doing it right, they are active on social media sites and spreading their gospel around town, have a look at their Website (where you can also download their EP), Facebook and they are also on Twitter etc.

In this week The Very Wicked released their first Music Video, have a look at that here. I really enjoyed this video, the visuals are great and I dig their sound. Simple as that.
