Yesterday was one of those days which was kind of quiet and also kind of busy. We were at home most of the day, moving stuff around and emptying boxes in Esther’s new flat and then in the evening I went to have dinner (a super tasty risotto) with my friends Becky, Hinnerk, Cheri and Matse. We had a great evening together with long chats which included a discussion about the blogging habits and motives of musicians and the various levels of sharing of personal information. The details are not really that important but, as Becky says she reads my blog, mentioning it here feels like it completes some sort of weird circle. So ya, do with that what you will. (Also, hi Becky!)
Aside from that, I thought I’d just take the chance to mention some music (not mine) that is floating about and that I have recently been in contact with:
One is the newest album by my newest pal, Ann Jangle. Ann is a Cape Townian musucian who I met recently thought Lee Thompson and who has also arrived in Berlin (along with her infectious personality). She has just released the album Kicking Sawdust and if you think that some growly rock & roll laced with ska horns could brighten up your day then go and download the thing right a flippen way.
The other is a folk singer named Paulette Wright from Reims in France. I was turned onto her by a venue in Reims (L’Excalibur) where I am trying to book a show for my tour in December. They need me to find someone local to share the bill with and recommended I get in touch with Paulette. She can’t make the gig (she is on tour with a theatre group at the time) but if you like a pretty voice and ethereal vibes then grab one of these tunes over your cup of tea.
And that is that about that. 🙂
