in the words of

wana party?

oh and a bit more kings of leon bumming..

I went to watch Talihina Sky and IT IS AMAZING.
Can't wait to watch it again when it's out on DVD.

I am now also in love with Nathan Followill. All the good ones are married :(
Caleb looked like he was going a bit mental in the Q&A, felt very sorry for the interviewer. But Caleb is so hilarious and they may be Southern boys, but they ain't no stereotype.

I LOVE THEM.

'Back Down South' from album 'Come Around Sundown.'

Kings of Leon
Paul Weller
White Lies
Zac Brown Band
Mona





Highlights
1. Whole KOL set, of course.
2. Zac Brown Band singing 'Killing in the name of'
3. White Lies set; much better than I remembered them!

Amazing day :) But looking at my camera after, I think I just took pictures of Caleb Followill, obviously.

where are the xx?

Jamie xx seems to have it all under control in the remix department and I am a massive fan. But I want more xx albums and more lyrics like this 'You used to have all the answers. And you, you still have them too. And we, we live half in the daytime. And we, we live half at night'.

The xx- xx has been one of my favourite albums of recent years and it still gives me chills. It will be two years in August since it's release, so I'm pretty sure my anticipation can't last much longer.

JESUS CHRIST I AM SO EXCITED I CAN'T BREATHE.
kings of Leon Talihina Sky 87 MINUTE LONG ROCKUMENTURY.
They are my favourites and therefore this is the best thing ever to me.
Apart from maybe seeing them in 2 days times :)

birdy shelter

The Lady calling herself 'Birdy', Jasmine Van den Bogaerde aged 15, has now covered of The XX's Shelter. It's lovely in a non-excitable way.
I do love her voice, lots.

It's worth a listen for sure...


Her first single was Bon Iver's 'Skinny Love' cover. Amazing.

one week today

I will be prepping up for Hyde Park and more importantly KINGS OF LEON, PAUL WELLER, WHITE LIES & MONA.

Kings Of Leon are my favourite band ever, I went the the Hyde Park show last year and I got tickets for this years yesterday, yaaaaaay.

They sang loads of their old stuff last year and I am really hoping they do again this year! The Come Around Sundown album from last year is probably their worse. Well definitely.

1st Aha Shake Heartbreak
2nd Because Of The Times
3rd Young Youth And Manhood
4th Only By The Night
5th Come Around Sundown

There you go, my KOL ranking order.

A few faves...

the best website

Bitching & Junk Food. YES YES YES YES.
I am a major sunglass fan and this site has the best pairs
I have ever seen and only £18!

The link.










































































Oh and if I had £110 I could so become a member of Alpines.
I am actually considering making a replica, but with a personalised touch.

get loaded

IN THE RAIN!

As much as I was drenched, wouldn't have had it any other way.

Got to see sexy Johnny Borrell and Catherine Pockson's amazing head wear (I think that's what we call it these days, bit more than a hat)

We saw Alpines first and not just to shelter in the Gigwise tent. As gutted as I was that Alpines didn't sing my favourite, Ice and Arrows (WHYYYY!?),they were one of the best performances there!


















Drive from Get Loaded In The Park. If you still don't love them, I can never be your friend!



Oh and the days style icon...Catherine Pockson of Alpines.















































The Cribs were THE BEST THING THERE. Literally. They were amazing and Ryan Jarman's little accent is the cutest. They sang all I wanted to hear and more and they played for a whole hour yay.



















Men's Needs.


Of course Razorlight were good, but after The Cribs, I think anything was going to sound amazing (On a Cribs high) When Golden Touch came on I think I went a little mental, my favourite.

Razorlight's In The Morning



Oh and Johnny got down off his shelted stage to perform in the rain with us! Awwwwh!



















Ms Noisette, 'I'll Never Forget You, dum dum dum dum'


















The quirky Joker and the Thief


















Us lot goofing about.

killing it again

Loving Jamie XX at the moment.

Jamie XX - Far Nearer


‘Far Nearer’ is an understated yet powerful production, its ecstatic, steel drum-driven rhythm merging beautifully with the pitch bent and re-interpreted vocal phrase “I Feel Better When I Have You Near Me”. NMBRS

Jamie XX- Beat For


Countering the sweetness of Far Nearer is B-side track ‘Beat For’, a dark and brooding beast blending half-remembered rave hooks with the same sense of rhythm and space that characterizes Jamie’s work with The xx. NMBRS

love these

PETS ROCK @ TOPSHOP.

I want this Snoop tee.

c l a s h

Best magazine ever. And the website is pretty good too. I have spent the majority of this afternoon apply to win festival tickets and now I am all excited (Lame) But I have recently discovered the podcast, clashmusic and their DJ mix podcast, definitely worth the download.

June's issue features all about the madness that is Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi's 'Rome' album, featuring Jack White and Norah Jones.
You can listen to the whole album streamed on youtube and I have fallen a bit in love with Ms Jones. Soooo get listening...

you are the girl

This reminds me of good times :)
