reading and listening

2 01 2009

I have 2 new things in my cultural life at the moment: a new music album and a new book….

Les hommes qui n'aiment pas les feemes1-  I am listening to Elbow – The Seldom seen kid. I posted one of their song a while ago called Audience with the pope. I love their CD and I want to discover their others. It is just slow pop music with hot voices. Really peaceful. Just try.

 

Elbow2- It is the first time I read in French since I am in London i.e. april 2006! And I read. My book shelves are full and I don’t know where to store my new ones. My parents talked to me so much about this book that I had to read it but unfortunately they have not all been translated from Swedish to English I believe. the write is Stieg Larsson and the first novel is ‘Les hommes qui n’aiment pas les femmes‘ – the english one is called ‘the girl with the dragon tatoo’. This is the first of a trilogy called Millenium.  In England, the 2nd will be published in Jan 09 and the 3rd in Jan 10!!! I can’t wait. They are all already out in France. So I read in French. I will tell you once I finished the first book.

Song of the day: Rule the world by Take That – since their come back, they are playing this song everywhere

orpheus risingI am currently reading Orpheus Rising Love, Rockets & a bloody great fish by Colin Bateman. That is an intresting book. Well written but a bit slow. Surprising from the being. It wont be my favourite but will be part of my discovery. Please give me some idea about what to read!!!!!

BTW, I go to Paris this week end. I had a free ticket from last year because I had more than an 1hrs delay! 🙂

Music of the day: Digital Monkey by Bakan Beat Box – TO LISTEN

I am just back from the Carling Academy in Islington where I saw Balkan Beat Box on stage and where I will soon see Horace Andy! You can see their website here. The sound was good, the dance was great and the atmosphere royal. They style was gypsy-balkan-punk-ska-electro-musical music. Nice and punchy. I loved it although my housemate says it is for young people! I don’t care, I love dancing music! 🙂
