"Jungle" by Emma-Louise

Jungle by Emma-Louise

I’ve been aching for you, my love. My head is in a jungle.

Progressive drumbeats truly attracts me so it’s not that hard to be fascinated by this song. It has that ethereal feel found on most Florence + The Machine tracks. I’m impressed that 19-year old, Emma Louise almost have the same lyrical maturity as Florence. Watch the official video of Jungle below.

Recommended to fans of: Fallulah, Florence + The Machine and Sarah Blasko

Down On Love (Rainy Season Mixtape)Written on June 2, 2011
A short mix to accompany us during this gloomy rainy season. Last year, I made a similar playlist entitled, Un Parapluie Et Une Chanson Pour Toi.  The theme was more on falling in love and now I’m doing the opposite. I  was inspired to make this playlist while reading Michel Faber’s Crimson Petal and the White.  The weather was nice for lying in bed and listening to somber tunes so  it seemed like a good idea to make a playlist that time.

Nouvelle VagueWritten on August 25, 2010A mix about growth, post-grad feelings and sentiments about entering the so-called real world. Nouvelle Vague means new wave in French and its used to describe movements in arts such as the French New Wave (Godard, Truffaut, etc.). I suppose this post-grad mix does evoke a new movement of thrill-seekers, job-hunters or newbies.
