I’m loving these last sweet days of spring, but also truly looking forward to lingering through long summer days in the backyard gardens and patios of suburbia…contemplating the everyday wonder of thisness…and dancing like crazy every chance I get. Best Coast provides a perfectly sun filled summer soundtrack.
Breathe. Dance. Smile. Love.
Enjoying this last weekend of winter, looking forward to the coming of spring, and adding this latest single from Veronica Falls to the list of music that makes me realize I’m nostalgic for the ethereal jangle pop of the 80s and 90s. Whimsical dream noise bright halftone dot color flash and relentless beat. Breathe. Dance. Smile. Love.
I’ve been in love with this song for the last couple months or so. After yesterday’s reference to the cyst on my pineal gland, a tiny gland located in the middle of the brain that Descartes designated as “the seat of the soul,” it seemed this song would be a good fit. I’ve known the cyst was there for most of my life. Considering the vast amount of folklore and the traditions within many world religions regarding the third eye, mysticism, intuition, and communication with the divine, I’ve often wondered what impact this tiny cyst has on the eye of my soul. I’ll be meditating today with lapis lazuli–one of the many stones associated with the third eye–and then later…more dancing on the bed. La Sera‘s second full length album, Sees the Light, is set to be released on March 27. Enjoy.
Some truly fantastic music for you to adore. Although this single was released in July 2010, Alex Winston’s amazing full length album is just finally out today. “Choice Notes” is on the full length debut “King Con” along with a mix of old and new songs by Winston. Like messages of life from the outside world. So happy it’s here, and that someone is creating incredible music about the multitude of quirky subcultures in America. Even better, just about all the tracks make me want to jump on my bed and dance with total abandon. Sometimes that sort of dancing is the best meditation ever.
