Beatenberg – The Sultan of The Economic Cafe

Ok so Beatenberg are not only a damn attractive band but they’re making some pretty special music. I had the pleasure of watching them a few weeks ago at an intimate gig at Kitchener’s Shhhh Night and they blew me away.
Any followers of SlightlySingle will know my love of beautiful lyrics and this band makes every song a lyrical joy.

I’m hoping they decide to play some shows while I’m in Cape Town over Christmas because seeing them once this year isn’t enough.

Band crush!

So I’m DJ’ing at Asseblief’s Pop Up Vintage sale on the 7th of December … clothing, cupcakes and amazing music 🙂

I’ll be wearing all Asseblief because they have amazing clothes and I usually am wearing at least one piece of their goodness.

Mens and Ladies attire will be for sale so I expect to see you all rocking out while spending your hard earned cash ♥

The Frown – The National

Ok so this video is amazing not just because I adore Eve Rakow and the music she makes, but to be honest it’s the best South African music video I’ve ever seen.

Tristan Holmes directs and he’s definitely going places (if a student Oscar wasn’t proof enough).

If I had my way South Africa would be sending Eve to SXSW instead of The Parlotones.

There’s talk of a European tour next year and I’m hoping this is true because it would be a shame for people not to see The Frown live.

The Black Atlantic – Walked On Wood

This is a beautiful song from The Black Atlantic, a Dutch acoustic pop band formed around singer-songwriter Geert van der Velde.

LYRICS:

Last night you were running errands with dad, in his car
Tied the ropes round the fence
And saved a ewe flipped on her back
Come morning, the house was full of strangers
You stood out, like knots on old, walked-on wood

One bumped off the ladder
Another moves a rung
I can feel the summer in this current

Behind your shoulders, he looms
What can you say?
When winter is lodged in your throat

We Are Augustines – Chapel Song

We Are Augustines is an American indie rock group based in Brooklyn, New York and consisting of guitarist Billy McCarthy, bassist Eric Sanderson and drummer Rob Allen. The lead singer has a heavenly voice.

I like alot!

LYRICS:

Well there goes my girl
Into the chapel
Now she’s walking down the aisle
And it feels just like a mile

And I shake shake shake like a leaf
And I’m lyin’ lyin’ lyin’ through my teeth
I got a pocket full of handshakes
And it don’t mean nothin’

There goes my girl
Into the chapel
Now she’s walking down the aisle
And her man begins to smile

And I shake shake shake like a leaf

And I’m lyin’ lyin’ lyin’ through my teeth
I’m a bowl of bruised fruit
Inside a chapel of shiny apples

Tear up the photograph!
Cause it’s a bright blue sky
Tear up the photograph!
Cause it’s a bright blue sky

Tear up the photograph!
Cause it’s a bright blue sky
Tear up the photograph!
Cause it’s a bright blue sky

It’s just a bright blue sky
It’s just a bright blue sky

Urban Cone – Freak

LYRICS:

I’m living in the shadows, I’m in the street
If you try to get me, I’ll fight you back
They treat me like a monster, they treat me like a freak
Don’t try to get me, I’ll fight you back

Don’t leave footprints in the snow, footprints in the snow
Cause they will track you like a freak, track you like a freak

This town is a prison, and I want to break free
Even though I’m nothing, I’ll fight you back
Is it cause I’m smaller, is it that I’m weak
Maybe I am a freak

Don’t leave footprints in the snow, footprints in the snow
Cause they will track you like a freak, track you like a freak

Don’t leave footprints in the snow, footprints in the snow
Cause they will track you like a freak, track you like a freak

Footprints in the snow,
Footprints in the snow,
Footprints in the snow

Footprints in the snow, in the snow, footprints in the snow,
Cause they will track you like a freak, track you like a freak

Don’t leave footprints in the snow, footprints in the snow
Cause they will track you like a freak, track you like a freak
