Owen Pallett

A few years ago, a friend visiting from London told me to check out this band called Final Fantasy on his iPod. I was a bit turned off (because i didn't like the band name). But my eyes lit up when he said Final Fantasy is Owen Pallett "this dude who plays violins in Arcade Fire".

So I came home and read Owen Pallett's wiki page. Sounds quite impressive - Arcade Fire, Beirut, Grizzly Bear, Arctic Monkeys, Do Make Say Think, mika. And he even won a Polaris!

So here is a video of him covering No Cars Go. But we can't call it a cover because technically, he is/was in Arcade Fire. But still, this is good.

ps: no one should ever really attempt to cover arcade fire unless of course, you are arcade fire (or god).
pps: cross posted on my own facebook page.

Listening to Arcade Fire always brings me back to 2004/05.
it's been a while.

The Kings of Convenience

Watched the Kings of Convenience with miss lilac Friday evening, with some of the other colours too..worsty was right next to me...held miss lilac's hands throughout the gig...told her it doesn't get better than that.

We love the KOC. The minimalism of Drake-esque guitar melodies, and polite irreverance of Morrissey-lyricalism. Floating above that all, vocal meoldies from two persons blending into a single voice and soul.

"Scrap moonlit dinner atop the Eiffel Tower. Scrap running through wild roses in an unpronounceable village in Denmark. I don't think it'll ever get more romantic than watching KOC live," I said.

She said "yes, i love you," and kissed me.
