Ollie///Beauty is music for the month :D
My top five for the month of March:
1. Duncan Sheik- For You
What a beautiful sound, short and sweet but really touching. Reminder of the summer evenings spend with friends and really one that I could listen to over and over... I heard of him through a YouTube video, see below, a mini film called The Delay which was produced as advertising for American Express and The Ritz-Carlton Hotels.
2. Jeremy Camp- Understand
Forget all your connotations to religious music, this guy has taken CCM (Contemporary Christian Music) to a new level. Even for those who just want to listen to the music and not take in the religious part, I would defo recommend. Makes me want to jump to the beat with the brilliant rock beats.
3. Andrew Morris- Already Gone
What a find through MySpace & iTunes, this guy is little known but for how long, on the strength of his EP, Upside Down, I can see a bright future... it's wonderful to find pure, real, local talent and this is certainly what Andrew stands for.
4. Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly- Find The Time
The power behind the music, Sam Duckworth, certainly shows he is one to look out for in 2008! His second album, Search for the Hows and Whys, released on the 10th March is already available on iTunes and this song, the first single, is a real stand out... Listen to it, enjoy it and be one of the first to tell others about this brilliant song.
5. Yael Naim- New Soul
For those of us who watch T.V, it's hard to miss the new MacBook Air ad's and this song is the tune that has you humming throughout... lovely, simple music that you want to repeat over and over will beautiful lyrics and a video that I can't get enough off...
A stunning look into the hotel industry, makes you really think and wants to remind you, that it's the little things in life that make you happy. Includes the music of Duncan Sheik (Look above!)
That's it for now, will be back soon with more commentary about life in terms of ME! :D
