FKA Twigs - “Water Me”

It’s taken me awhile to get into FKA Twigs, because I mean…there’s so much music and only so little time. My love has fallen upon this gem from her 1st ep. So incredibly beautiful and mesmerizing. Listen to it without watching the video.

Jessie Ware - “Want Your Feeling”

Produced by Blood Orange aka Devonté Hynes, sung by Jessie Ware. From her new album out later this fall. Delicious!

Popaganda Festival in Stockholm is kicking off this weekend. I am so incredibly jealous of people going. But I am saving my money for months of travel on the sunny side of the world this fall/winter.

Stockholm people: enjoy Kindness, Twin Shadow, Yelle, Icona Pop, London Grammar a bit for me.

Rhodes - “Breathe”

Beautiful new track by Rhodes.

Shannon Saunders - “Sheets”

Digging it!

Tina Dico - “Mines”

I thought my teen love for Tina Dico (Tina Dickow) had fizzled out years ago. But her new album is quite a gem. And this song is just beautiful.
