Monday Moods: “Taro” by Alt-J, “Cherry Wine” by Hozier, and “My Boy William” by Little Comets

Perhaps the morning started off to a slow start or hasn’t even begun to show itself. A warm glow sets the room alight and all you wish is to remain encompassed by your warm blankets until the outside temperature matches the inside. Then you can put your sunglasses on, slip into your comfy shoes, and take a walk to somewhere you’ve never been or somewhere you need to go.

Mini Reviews: “Hope Is Just A State Of Mind” by Little Comets

From the very beginning, Little Comets has amazed and brought musical delight to me. The first time I heard “Tricolour” off their initial album, “In Search of Elusive Little Comets”, I fell  in love 100% and all thanks to someone near and dear to me. But back to Little Comets!

Their newest album compliments the changing of the seasons into warmer and sunnier days perfectly. The fluidity of the songs is key and spot on throughout the record, filling your veins with positive vibes; making you feel buoyant with cheerful-happy-wonderfulness. While not all the songs have such an upbeat subject basis, the songs themselves, the melodies and tempo and overall structure of them create a lovely tune in your ears. From the lyrics to the notes and everything in between, it truly is a ‘gift of sound’ for you.

Very few musicians nowadays are able to create an album where every song is likeable in its own regard, but Little Comets has done it, and while I have difficulty in choosing just one favourite, some ones I suggest to listen to straight away include, “My Boy William”, “The Gift of Sound”, and “Wherewithal”. But in reality, I love the entire album, and I do suggest listening to the whole album from start to finish first because you will not be disappointed.

It was a Wild Beasts, Little Comets, Reptar, and Everything Everything kind of day.

The other day I took my first commuting trip to Hamilton since my surgery, the same route I’d gone on when I was still in school (I am indeed graduated now, as of last June). This trip usually takes two hours and consists of a city bus, a train, then another bus until we arrive on campus. And with this new found step forward and adventure ahead, I listened to groups that absolutely lull my ears into bliss and create melodic love that will make your ears tingle with happiness. So here’s a little taste into the wonders that are the Wild Beasts, Little Comets, Reptar, and Everything Everything.

“Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants” by Wild Beasts

“Mathilda” by Little Comets

“Houseboat Babies” by Reptar

“Photoshop Handsome” by Everything Everything
