Undiscovered Musicians: Keaton Henson

Floating across the magical land of 8tracks, a site for users to create personal playlists,bounced from one indie playlist to the next, before eventually stumbling upon a gem of an artist: Keaton Henson. Soulful, lyrical and emotive, Henson’s music is both breathtakingly beautiful, and yet, deceivingly simple on the surface.

Genres: indie, folk rock, classical, alternative rock Continue reading

5 Songs Currently On Replay

It’s difficult to choose songs to describe my week, as I never take time into account when listening to music. Rather, this compilation depicts the most replayed songs… recently (oh, what a specific time-frame I’ve provided). Hopefully, you’ll bypass the songs’ randomness –that skip across a multitude of genres, ideas and overall themes– and perhaps find enrichment in the lyrics.

And if not, soz. (My first “text-talk” word on this blog! I am so proud of myself ^_^ ) Continue reading

Goodbye Moon [FLASH FICTION]

Sometimes a single word can ignite your imagination. I was extremely inspired by Emma’s amazing post, where the prompt was a simple (yet powerful) word: moon. The night is such a beautiful place to be, with the simplicity of darkness, away from the busy rush of daytime. Be dynamic during the daylight hours before returning to the night: the place of solace.

The following is flash fiction (merely around 200 words) revolving around the moon. I hope you enjoy it. Continue reading

Undiscovered Musicians: Daughter

It all started last year, when I clicked on a Tumblr follower’s blog. They had a song on auto-play, and although I usually pause them (as I’m listening to something else myself), I couldn’t help but leave it on. The tune, the edge, the beautiful voice accompanying the lyrics… it was unlike anything else I heard. It was a different to my music taste at that time (alternative rock), and yet, I found myself googling the lyrics and uncovering the song. I left it on an endless loop that day.

I found Daughter that day, of the Genres: Indie, folk, alternative rock, with ambience.

Goodbye June, Hello July

It’s been so long since I’ve written one of these posts! But I definitely enjoyed constructing them, especially since they allowed me to reflect on my past month through only positive things (favourite music, words, events, etc.) June has been a wonderful month, but to be honest, I kind of lost track of everything. I don’t even remember –not quite– when it began, as school was my main preoccupation. Continue reading

Simply Sunday (#4)

simply-sunday-final1

Simply Sunday is a reading meme run here at Books for a Delicate Eternity. It’s where you can share your favourite quote of the week; be it from a book, a novella, a short story, a poem, a song – whatever you like!

I am the worst at updating on a regular schedule, so this Simply Sunday post is long overdue (about four weeks or so –yikes!) However, I finally remembered, and today’s Simply Sunday is on a quote I’ve loved for a long time, from one of my favourite books, Marcello in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork.

That’s what faith is, isn’t it? Following the music when we don’t hear it.
