~an adventure in music~and a little fashion~

Do you love music?
This is where I post my music. One of my great loves in life. It's something I cannot be without. Carnival is my place to post what I'm listening to. It's really a blog for me, as I have rather eclectic taste in music and don't really expect many others to be right there with me! However, I do love when someone does find something that speaks to them, as has happened. Now that makes me so happy!
And please do take a peek there, just there above, where it says 'Music and Me' to see why I do.

Evening Hymns.

A new discovery for me (via Spotify) is this band from Ontario Canada, Evening Hymns. They are essentially main man Jonas Bonnetta, and 'a rotating collective of musicians which includes members of Ohbijou, The Wooden Sky, The D'Urbervilles and Forest City Lovers.'
I've been listening to their album 'Spirit Guides' over the last couple of days and while there are echos of Fleet Foxes, I do think there is enough here that is totally their own to make this a really nice listen.
Take a moment to check them out here. Love the slow build into something quite joyous and uplifting.

And I really love this lovely live performance by Jonas and an uncredited lady friend. Very sweet.

Brown Bird, Take Me Away. Take Me Away.

These wonderful people are my latest joy in the world of music.
Really love how earthy this music is, quite different from their two
previous albums which I love, though are much more low key and less bluesy.

Check out this great interview too!
