I'll Be Your Baby Tonight(cover)

I get really excited when people introduce me to new local acts. I mean its all good that we are always looking to the west for new inspiration but its also important that we take from it and do something with it. Al's sister Naquita performed at Blue Frog in Bombay recently and I must say that hearing good western vocals in India is so refreshing!

The song could be a little tighter but all in all I am really looking forward to hearing more from her.

Maybe it's time I moved to Bombay?

"since REM is no more"

Wouldn't you love to wake up to a song like this posted on your wall? I strongly believe that when you cover a song you make it your own.

Ingrid Michaelson is fabulous! A post on her coming soon. Enjoy

P.S: Wouldn't it be fun to own one of those self Harmonizing machine thingys? If anyone knows where i can get one please leave a comment will get back to you! Thanks

What the Water Gave Me

For a minute I thought I had missed the release date for the new Florence and the Machine album Ceremonials but I think I'm on track.

Thanks to our college chain mail where people share music they like, I happened to listen to the new track 'What the Water Gave Me'. It's almost two in the morning and I feel like I have enough energy to blow a hole in the ceiling! It isn't as unconventional as their other tracks nor does it have the signature strong vocals but this track makes you want to get up and run, dance, fly, walk through walls and spend whats left of the night dancing. Thanks Al. Enjoy!

Day One

In keeping with the Wallowy mood watchlistentell's new video. Day One by Rae Morris.

I'm quoting from her myspace page because the description is well way better than anything I could have come up with. "Rae Morris is an 18 year old singer-songwriter from Blackpool. Learning piano at an early age and forever underestimating her ability, Rae recently found a voice she didn’t know she had. Make your own comparisons, but be sure to notice a girl of maturity beyond her years. Cleverly matching her inimitable voice to songs of new experiences, those defining challenges like love and not always being able to have the answers, Rae is the epitome of raw and claims nothing else."

Beautiful woman, Beautiful song! enjoy!


I never actually thought I would be the kind of person who would sit around and think about what my role was in the universe, but I've been doing a lot of that lately. Of course wallowing in self pity requires the right kind of music. Something that reminds you of all the ridiculous and well, reckless decisions in your life.

I stumbled upon Adele's concert in Soho and found the perfect songs. Apart from the fact that it is fabulous wallowing music it is also musically fantastic. Her husky, deep vocals take you to dusky bars with dim lighting and the old piano tucked into a corner. 

The first song Fool that I am as originally sung by Etta James. I've listened to both versions and somehow this version seems more raw and honest. Take a bath, pull out a bottle of wine, close your eyes and sit back. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


The second one is called Crazy for You. Apart from the fantastic vocals, the lyrics are also quite nice and most times quite apt. Love the simplicity of the guitar juxtaposed with her wide ranging vocals. Enjoy!

 P.S: Both versions are not off the live version I have been listening to but they are as good!
