please keep in mind
i'm very fond of twists
As I'm sure you've noticed, I'm a bit of a fan of good lyrics in music, and these guys are my latest obsession. I made a layout about them for BB last week.Discovery of new music that is. This is how they were described in the Woodford program, and we couldn't resist:
"Take the bellow of the blues. the wail of a gypsy fiddle, a Cajun love song, punk rock street poetry and mix it up with some old RnB... beautiful
song-writing and lush vocal harmonies from Canada."
I love how surprising this music is - I don't think I have heard violins which send shivers down your spine with a beatboxing background before. I went looking for a decent clip to put here on my blog, but the best I could find was this My Space site. The clips are short, but they give you some idea.
So what's been happening around here? We had a busy, busy school holiday. Lots of visitors, and the kids and I had a visit to Jeni and Al last week - thanks so much for your hospitality guys :-) We had a lovely time, but I took NO photos while I was there - bad, bad, scrapbooker!
The start of the school year snuck up on us - I was still covering books on Sunday afternoon! This year the kids are in yr 6, 4, and 1. Max was so excited about starting year 1. I did remember to take a photo (or several) of that, of course :-)
I had a flick through the latest For Keeps at the newsagent the other day. I have a set of cards in there, and a layout. Another one inspired by song lyrics, this time Sarah Blasko's Half Forgotten Things. Unfortunately the layout has the wrong materials list and name on it in the magazine, but here it is:
