Weekly Digs: Elle King

I discovered this week’s track on The Graham Norton Show. Elle King is an LA native, and also dabbles in acting (naturally).

The track Ex’s & Oh’s has got traces of blues, rockabilly, country, rock, pop and it’s damn catchy!

Take a listen..

Weekly Digs: The Last Shadow Puppets

TLSP are back!! Fans have been waiting for their return since their 2008 release ‘The Age of the Understatement.’ The band is made up of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane.

The first taste we have been offered is ‘Bad Habits’, I only had to listen to this song once and it was stuck in my head for the rest of the afternoon. It’s rather catchy.. lead vocals by Miles, it has a very distinctive bass line that is reminiscent of their signature sound. Strings give the song a taste of the ‘spy rock’ sound they are so well known for.

Take a listen, it’s goooood.

Weekly Digs: Bowie

In light of this week’s news of David Bowie’s passing from cancer, I felt I ought to celebrate his music here.

This song is the ultimate anthem. It’s appropriate to play in almost any situation.. I love it, so I am sharing it.

RIP David Bowie, you will be missed.

Weekly Digs: Jess Glynne

Jess Glynne is a British singer songwriter I have recently been introduced to. She has a really strong, husky and addictive voice.

She has some heartfelt, raw and stripped back songs, but this one in particular ‘Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself’ is a really good jam. It gives you the feel good vibes and makes you want to dance! Check it out…

Her debut album When I Cry I Laugh is out now.

So Cute it Hurts

So the holidays are over for some of us, and it’s back to reality… this can be a pretty depressing realisation, especially when the weather is cold and you just want to be tucked up in bed. OR it’s hot and sunny and your friends are at the beach while you’re stuck in the office… Either way.. cheer up with this adorable video..

I Wanna Dance With Somebody!

So either you’re stuck at work on a skeleton staff or you’re enjoying some time off this week. Either way, there’s never a bad time for a mood booster!

This video has been kicking around for a little while now, but I had to share it. Every time I see it it makes me smile.

Get your dancing shoes on!

Weekly Digs: The Beach Boys

It’s Christmas!!!! One of my new favourite Christmas songs comes via The Beach Boys.

This song was released in 1964, it’s got classic Beach Boys harmonies and poppy beat…. but it’s a Christmas song!

It puts a smile on my face and instantly gets me into the Christmas spirit… I hope it does the same for you!

Merry Christmas!
