Glass Candy’s first official video has just been released. The bigger news here for me is that they have a new single released. Feeling Without Touching can be previewed on Resident Advisor, here. The best thing for me is being able to watch Ida No dance, which always inspires me to dance in exactly the same way.
On this single is the epic “Covered In Bugs” which makes me want to close my eyes and soak it all up.
I am sorry to find out that I’ll be back home in Malaysia when Glass Candy play in my local, Plan B. I usually have to go across London to go out and finally one of my favourite bands on my favourite label plays locally and I’m away on the other side of the world. Why? Gutted.
The best thing about compilations like Milky Disco is the discovery of new music. Really, nothing quite like finding some sweet, sweet tunes that you want to listen to over and over again. Thanks to Sarah and Resident Advisor, I now have Milky Disco 2 (which also has Glass Candy track The Chameleon remixed by Johan Agebjorn) and Hatchback in my life.
What’s better than falling in love with new music is discovering that the artist has also collaborated with another artist you like, creating even more new music to love and listen to. So yes to artistic collaborations between friends! I am excited that Hatchback and Sorcerer make up Windsurf and I am feeling gluttonous about grabbing as much new music as I can.
Colors of The Sun plays like a smooth road trip on a quiet highway. It’s sunbaked music, and it’s you, the vast landscape and a lot of tarmac ahead of you and the sun in your eye.
It’s funny how quickly the weather changes in a day. I woke up today to a beautiful Autumn’s day. Clear, blue skies. I remember stopping and pausing. Looking up and staring into the golden sun. I saw the slow and graceful fall of a yellow leaf. But I know not what leaf it was.
When it got dark this evening, I thought that it had gotten pretty cold. I wished I brought my mittens out. It properly felt like winter. And then it snowed. In October, it snowed. I remembered that it was only in April that it last snowed in London.
I felt like I’d gone through a year in a single day today. I found some beautiful photos by Cori Kindred, taken on her polaroid. I love how sunsplashed the photos are. This one in particular captured the loss I felt, that memory of this morning’s Autumn day.
I decided to put on the Resident Advisor podcast by Lee Jones. It felt right to sit here on the first winter day of the year, listening to beautiful cinematic music and admiring these images.
