Jupiter Jones ~ Still

February 21, 2011

by Maya

Happy Monday to all of you! On my way home from work I heard this song on the radio and was instantly hooked. The band in question is called Jupiter Jones. Normally I am not a fan of German music but this one is somehow special, beautiful and sad.

M. Ward – a well-kept secret

January 7, 2011

by Gibson Hummingbird

I would like to introduce you to a truly gifted musician and songwriter  –  M. Ward. You might know him from Monster of Folk or from the band She & Him (with Zooey Deschanel) however his solo work is amazing. A few days ago I listened to some of his tracks and was mesmerized by them. His music is sort of timeless; you don’t find it that often nowadays.

Growing up in Portland M. Ward released his first solo debut “Duet for Guitars” in 2001 followed by 6 other records. His last album  “Hold Time” was released in 2009. In 2006 he got together with Zoey Deschanel as the band She & Him. And then in 2009 he formed the band Monster of Folk  with Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes and My Morning Jacket star Jim James.

This guy is a real genius…always ready for surprises…can’t wait for more.

By the way M stands for Matthew.

Remember the Classics: Pink Floyd

January 5, 2011

by Maya



Today I listened to Pink Floyd’s “Coming back to life” on my ipod and once again realized how beautiful and meditative its lyrics and melody are. Enjoy!

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight..into the shining sun

Lykke Li

Recently I found this wonderful and charming swedish girl. I really like her eccentric style, I guess that I also have a soft spot for the little swedish folk. I don’t know why, but they have some kind of a subtle energy that I think is refreshing and inspiring. Anyhow, hope you like her music.

Russian Waltz

December 23, 2010

by Maya


Snowy greetings from Central Europe! I just returned from my fabulous skiing holidays and spontaneously decided to write another post!

My boyfriend and I recently started attending dance classes and of course we are also learning how to dance the waltz. On this occasion I got reminded of my all-time favorite waltz: Dmitri Shostakovich’s Waltz No. 2 which is also known as the Russian Waltz. Somehow I prefer this one to the classic Viennese Waltz because it is darker and more dramatic. This piece was also chosen by Stanley Kubrick as the opening music for his last movie “Eyes Wide Shut”. Enjoy!
