Tunes to Share #8

With all thats been happening you'd think I would have had no time to go collecting new music... but I just cant help myself! These tracks aren't necessarily new... in fact a couple of them could be classed as old (NO WAY!).... however they are all certainly rockin my boat at the moment!

The Checks - Candyman Shimmer ...... saw these guys live recently but was slightly too distracted to concentrate....... such a sweet tune to just bop around to.... definitely got that NZ summertime sound ...... 

Watercolours - Under ....... first heard this beautiful girl in an interview with Charlotte Ryan on 95Bfm's Morning Glory show... just deliciously hypnotic...

Mount Kimbie - Mayor (Slower Version) ...... me and my lovely mate Louie have had an awesome arrangement where we send each other tracks each night - highly recommend this set-up between musically like-minded individuals.... it was so exciting every night to receive pieces of absolute GOLD.... this track is one of my personal highlights of that exchange (which is currently on hold as he is out sailing the seas!) ...... cant wait for more track sharing goodness!! You can go check out his freakin sweet mix on Soundcloud HERE ...... just about blew my socks off that he used a tune I had sent him for the first track - Lovely Bloodflow by Baths is also one my most ULTIMATE tunes to make my head want to explode...hehehe (had to put another link to that track - go on.... go listen awwwww its just SOOOOO GOOD - amazing video too!)

Radiohead - House of Cards...... just love the words.... tingleberrys and butterflies in belly... In Rainbows is an absolutely brilliant album.....

Roots Manuva - Let the Spirit (Hot Chip Remix) ......  hells YEEEEAH!! this track came to me from my gorgeous new roomie Eve via Facebook..... tis a crankin 'get up and farken MOVE' tune.... no more slouchin around feelin sorry for ones self!!

Remember I am 'always' posting new tunes and bits and pieces under 'Bliss For Your Ears' (to the right of my posts) plus also heapsa goodies on my YouTube channel and my Soundcloud account (see links to the left)......... ENJOY!! :-) XOXO


House of Cards....

Crikey!! Its been waaaay too long since I last posted ( I always say that!) ... but then, a lot has been happening.... 
Me..... on my birthday..... enjoying the last few rays of sunshine on the new houses front porch.... having a celebratory beer whilst reading my delicious present from my new roomies ('FANZINES' by Teal Triggs). Looking forward to the adventures ahead.... :-)

I've just moved into a new home in the 'city' (or approximately 'the city'.... a lot closer than I was before thats for sure!)... Living in a flat again with my beautiful friends Eve and Katie, baby Ivy and cat/dog FiFi.
Its an awesome house and I cant wait till we truly make it our own....  very exciting when it feels like summer is just sneakily awaiting around the corner - its the perfect house for long summer barbeques and beers on the front porch.... aah.... bliss! The first night here (and my birthday) was celebrated with champagne and pizza in that very spot - oh the potential for languid summer soirees!! 

Moving house really puts things into perspective. It has been almost 9 years since I last boxed up all of my belongings and hauled them off to a new abode. Its amazing how much crap I have accumulated, but what is possibly even more amazing is how much I want to get rid of. This may because of my current state of mind; embracing the new and experiencing the life-affirming nature of just letting go......

Not only have I moved house but I have also been working my ass off doing even MORE freelance graphic design stuff!! Such excitement!! I will post some of the work I've been doing soon - just gotta wait till these events actually happen first - don't want to divulge any bits and pieces I shouldn't be just yet!

But here is one I whipped up last night for a Lindy Hop event in Raglan - I desperately want to go but will be meeting most of my class in town for the Moving Planet march up Queen Street.... more on that later..... :-)

So........posts, henceforth, will be erratic while I am getting my life back in order........ I will get back on track eventually but until then.. peas and love to you all xoxo

P.S You should ALL come along to the Moving Planet march this weekend - September 24th!! Im encouraging all my kids (in my class, I don't have multiple children!) to take their friends and families along - we're screen-printing our own t-shirts and everything!!
