MNDR – Feed Me Diamonds featuring Raven

Posted by on 29 Aug 2014 at 00:48 in Music, People

My favorite queen from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 2 is Raven. She’s dark, dramatic, beautiful… a true diva. I was happily surprised to discover she’s in the video clip for MNDR’s Feed Me Diamonds. The remix version of this song plays a lot at work, so I decided to check out who sang it and Google gave me the video as one of the search results. Needless to say I immediately had to check it out.

I absolutely adore, love Florence Welch. Her voice is magical, her songs addictive. I’ve seen Florence + the Machine twice live and wish I could hear her live at least once a month.

Found a link to this video on Pinterest and have seen it already 10 times. It’s called: Florence Welch in “Not Fade Away” by Tabitha Denholm and the song is a cover from Buddy Holly. Enjoy!

♫ Paralamas do Sucesso – Uma Brasileira ♫

There are only a few brazilian musicians that I actually like. Zeca Baleiro, Marisa Monte & Adriana Calcanhoto are on my list. estão nessa minha lista. But I’ve been a bit nostalgic so I decided to look things up on YouTube and ended up on memory lane. I went all the way back to 1996. when I used to go to the old concert hall Metropolitan in Rio very often. In that year I saw Paralamas do Sucesso, Skank, Cássia Eller, Raimundos, O Rappa… I remembered how I used to think Raimundos was very “heavy”. I looked up their video Puteiro em João Pessoa and had a blast (the song title translated to Whorehouse in João Pessoa). In 1997 in moved to João Pessoa and years later I saw Cabruêra perfome live in Roda Viva, the famous whorehouse in João Pessoa. In my trip down memory lane I realized how good brazilian video clips were. I don’t know if they still are, but compared to european and american clips, the brazilian ones were very creative.

Swedish Sounds

If you are anything like me, you will love The Mary Onettes. These swedes make tunes in the likes of The Cure, The Smiths, Joy Division e with an 80’s feeling. After hearing one of their songs on Grey’s Anatomy and got the whole album and haven’t stopped listening to it. Last week I ordered the CD and the EP from their label: Labrador. I highly recommend it.
