~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.

'Joy, It's All Founded...'

I have waited years for this. 
And while I have loved, absolutely, and without prejudice, everything Justin Vernon has done since 'For Emma, Forever Ago', and 'Blood Bank', all his solo projects, be it the experimental Volcano Choir, or the 80's soft-rock inspired Gayngs, this, this is what I have been waiting for....

And I am in no way disappointed. Bon Iver has not let us down. With a new album finally due out next month, this newly released single, Calgary, is just everything I hoped it would be. Oh my heart....

Except...well, maybe I am a tad devastated to miss getting tickets to see him in Dublin in November..... Something else I have been anticipating like nothing else for years.

Okay....I am heartbroken. :-(

Sufjan was Stupendous!

A dream come true, seeing Sufjan Stevens live. And the show lived up to everything I had hoped for. There was wings. And confetti. And balloons. And spaceships. And day glo. And dancing girls. And dancing Sufjan. And he was sweet and so dang FUNNY! What an amazing night!

For entertainment alone it is now joint best gig with Jónsi in London.

Summer Is Just Around The Bend.

A bit more mainstream than my usual cup of tea, but I've been enjoying Mr. Johnson's most recent album in the car with the kids. It has that nice summery feel that gets your juices flowing. Bring on the sunshine!
