Didn't update for two days I guess. Busy busy busy! I am yet to write a 5000 word debate. [ eyes rolling ]. Anyhow, I am going back to campus on 20th. So that leaves me with just two more updates. So I thought I'd post one of my favorite alt rock bands. Radiohead. Now when you're listening to Thom Yorke sing the most unusual lyrics in that fashion, you don't think just how beautiful this band is or just how tight it is! You think of other issues! You think of yourself. You introspect. You try to understand those words and how each and every beat doesn't calm you but makes you question so many things within you! It makes you face your vulnerability in a sense that you accept it and you carry on with it.
This one track is immensely close to my heart. It sounds great on speakers but listen to it on headphones. You will zone out, like I do, every freaking time! [ Where did the monsoon disappear? ]
Genre: Alternative Rock
Title: Fake Plastic Trees
She lives with a broken man,
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns...
He used to do surgery for the girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins.
You see the words? I don't even have an adjective for this track. Also, I am looking for good tattoo parlors/artists in Delhi, other than Devilz'. Do let me know if you have any info.
Lots of love. And lots of beer as Monsoon cheated on Delhi!
Busy day. Weird bank day too. What's up with the state banks these days? :|
Today's track is from India!!! ^.^ Lounge Piranha (cool name, right?) is a real talent pack. Check out their My Space page and you'll know. This was the first track my cousin made me listen to and I fell in love with it. After enough number of serious instrumental tracks, this one is a "feel-good" song.
Firstly, happy birthday to my very own Buttercup. My friend, Shivani turns 20.
Honestly, I don't understand this Friday the 13th business. I mean, come on! I was born on friday the 13th! Am I weird? [ok, don't answer that].
Anyhow... I talked about this artist who's very close to my heart. She is Sóley.A beautiful singer. She reminds me of Regina Spektor but I like her more. Her music is peace. Period. Headphones suggested, again. I miss my brother. I got a very pretty gift from my cousin yesterday. Very pretty. Sinusitis returns with a bang. :|
Allergy season is here!!
Title: And Leave
Dream my way and I will dance for you...
Dream my way and I will sing for you!!
You know I have the most amazing people around me. And that includes each one of you who appreciate and encourage me here. I love you all.
Just came to my room. Was on the terrace with my doggie. He likes to spend time with me while the sun sets, everyday! The basic idea of making this playlist was to get a respite from the usual music I listen to; because you like it or not, you do get tired of the words, the beats, etc. I mean... just how much can you listen to the old playlists?! Right. Those who liked Sufjan Stevens yesterday will love this. (Or so I hope). Now this band is one of my personal favorite post-rock bands after, of course, Slint. Instrumental music so bear with it, please :)
I suggest you use headphones/ earphones for this track. Mogwai; the band is talented, amazingly gifted and they come up with crazy names for their tracks, like this one.
Genre: Post-rock, instrumental Title: I'm Jim Morrison I'm Dead Artist: Mogwai
I feel lost. Absolutely lost.
All of us have so many layers within us. This track always reminds of the layered truth behind Jim Morisson's death. Who knows if he died in that pub or his own pool of comfort!! Sigh.
You know I have a very strange mood today. Sometimes you go through days when all you want to do is lie in your bed and listen to some music like this. Now, I know I had promised Floyd and Radiohead and Elliott Smith, but Sufjan Stevens cannot be ignored. Now this is different music. Its simple. But not Coldplay simple. There is something about Stevens which is absolutely soft. You know its like poetry.
I have been listening to Stevens all day today. Have not done anything productive. Have traveled across spaces in thought. And here I am now. Its an acoustic track so not many people usually like it. Here it goes anyway.
Tuesday. The 10th of July. Just look at the weather! I mean just look at it!! AMAZING.
MTV India hardly comes up with something good. But when it does, its pretty awesome. I personally liked Pakistan Coke Studio more. MTV Unplugged was okay too. What really caught my eye and ears was MTV Sound Trippin'. Sneha Khanwalkar is one hell of a talent pack!!
My favorite track remains Episode 1. Punjab. And if you missed that show, you missed something really powerful.
Okay. So here is the thing. I will post one song everyday along with some piece of random crap I keep rambling. Starting from today, we share music. This will go on till the 18th or 19th of July, depending on when I go back to college.
The new playlist starts.
Monday. The 9th of June. And I am happy.
Now the following song was told to me by a friend. And I fell in love with it the first time I listened to it. The Jezabels are a group of amazing musicians from Sydney, Australia. This track is #1 on my Monsoon playlist. Also, the tracks on the playlist are in a random order.
Genre: Alternative / Indie.
Title: A Little Piece
Artist: The Jezabels
Look at me, through the sea, I'm in love, hold me tight,
There you got it.
And did you find, that you like,
A little piece, of cherry pie,
Hot from the oven.
You know what I love about music?? It allows you to teleport and at the same time traverse through dimensions.
Monsoon is finally here in Delhi.
Time to change playlists.
We go to Elliott Smith from Dream Theater; to Floyd from Staind; to Radiohead from Maroon 5.
So I am thinking of starting a chain-update on this blog for the first time. Keeping in mind the insane need for me to keep listening to music all day long, I am thinking of posting one song of the day! And I need feedback. So the few readership that I have, let me know :)
I love sharing my music with everyone.
For starters, here is the song of the day for me
Miss Misery | Elliott Smith
*I know you'd rather see me gone
Than to see me the way that I am
But I am in the life anyway*
This man was a sheer genuis. Just listen to this song and you'll know exactly what I am talking about.
More, soon. After I get some feedback about the music thing.
