Oh hey.. That’s me!
Looks like a movie still!
Musings on life, culture and other crap.
Late to the party alert! So I was listening to a compilation of Merge Records in the background at my local Starbucks and came across this band I liked the sound of, Amor de Dias. Being a long time fan of The Clientele I was pleased to find out that this is another band for Alasdair MacLean. What I also didn’t know is that his partner in crime is the great Lupe Núñez-Fernández of another band I have loved for a very long time, Pipas.
Sometimes beautiful things pass you by the first time but you come around to them eventually.

I had to take some photos of some This One Summer original pages so I thought I’d share them here.
Thanks again so much to everyone who has come out to our events, including the recent signing in LA. It means a lot. <3

Can’t wait to read!
Satie - Gnossienne 1 - Alessio Nanni
Still one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever. Totally sends me to another place.
Tiny Vipers - Life On Earth (Sub Pop) - 2009
Dust floats in the sun
A sad and beautiful world
Quiet without noise
who: Got a Girl
what: There’s a Revolution
when: 2014 (I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now)
why: Got A Girl is the collaborative creation of Mary Elizabeth Winstead (of Scott Pilgrim fame) and Dan “The Automator” Nakamura. Influenced by ’60s French Pop and girl groups, their first LP comes out July 22. Winstead’s vocals are spot-on (silkier than The Bird and the Bee, less brassy than She & Him) and their newest single is infectious and lush.
Loves me some M.E. Winstead. Looking forward to hearing the full album. Big fan of Dan the Automator too! Can’t wait for a video. The thought of Mary Elizabeth shimmying in a mini-skirt makes me feel a special kind of happy.
