Good old Calvin Harris creating a floor filler like he does, And Rihanna’s voice is amazing as always. Was a tad surprised when I saw the video, she has so marketed herself at the british crowd. It is sooo free party/rave scene! Another example of her Chameleon like qualities that makes her so popular. Does she do this herself or is she managed Really well?
Anyways she’ll be big at the festivals this year if thats what she is aiming for.
Ha did I tell you? My Hubby and I have tickets for the Radio 1 Road Show Thats coming to our home town! Hee hee we are gonna be a right pair of teenagers ! Example (soso), Eric Prydz ( yeah ok) and Pete Tong, Annie Mac, and Mistajam plus more! Yay! Sooo excited and it’s all free! Tho gonna probably be one of the oldest there. Nevermind We will be able to show the teenagers how to be teenagers 🙂
Discovered Azealia thro MTV
Now M.I.A Someone else used by Madonna in same video (Give me all your luvin) on the other hand I connect with a bit more.
She is a bit love/hate for me. I think her voice is quirky when she does that thing that she does when she raps and she kinda looks other worldly with her anime style hair, big eye lashes and bright lips! But generally I don’t connect with her music. Oh well nevermind. Madonna must as she’s used her, but then Madonna was always canny like that. She always seems to be able to appeal to the widest Audience!
Whilst on the subject of music I have been meaning to share with you a new fave album, Fever Ray by Karin Dreijer Andersson (of The Knife, a band she was in with her brother I think). Her album is a bit of a soundtrack for me at the moment.
Loving tracks If I had a heart, When I grow up (which has the line “I put my soul into what I do”, Good Line) and I’m Not Done a particular fave. ‘Tis a refreshing album to listen to amongst all the pop and chart fodder. Takes me to a happy place something I haven’t done in ages. I used to listen to music loads but since having kids and working and looking after a hubby and a home music has been neglected. Now, now my friends it is awakening again with that lush blissed out feeling only achieved with head phones on or music pumping loud thro the speakers.
Thank you Karin for Fever Ray 🙂
