Music for a London Life

Music for a London Life | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

Music for this London Life will feature absolutely anything that appeals!

 

Music that features London ..music that played in London ..that's played in London ..music by those that live in London ..lived in London ..were born here ..visited here ..died here ... and music that has nothing whatsoever to do with London ..it simply makes my London Life happy!

 

Enjoy the mix!

A Blast From The Past: Nina Simone-Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

I spent yesterday afternoon  listening to Nina Simone on replay and marvelling anew at her musical muscle , her dignity., her seriousness.Truly aura-inspiring.  What a great way to forget you  are actually doing mundane household chores  as you listen intently. You have no other choice, when this lady sings. She gives each performance her heart and her soul and all we have to do in return , wherever we are' whatever we are doing, is stop for a few minutes, listen and applaud.

The April Maze - I've Seen The Rain

"I've Seen The Rain will feature on The April Maze Album 'Sleeping Storm' out Feb 2015. Single out now at www.theaprilmaze.com and iTunes. "

 

'Mayhew’s masterful guitar, Agam’s visceral, growling cello and her own dark twisted vocal…mean much of this is a series of inky-black fairy tales.'

Mojo Magazine (4 Star review)

 

“Indie alt-folk, much influenced by the sound (and fashions) of 70s San Francisco, Agam’s voice a rich cocktail of dark molasses and sweet honey.” Folking.com 

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

Another exciting new discovery for MFLL . 

We love this Gower Coast video from Oxford/Melbourne based alt folk duo The April Maze and will definitely be checking out one of their live shows once they go on tour In 2015. They are also available for house concerts. Oh what a night that would be!

THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE - "Rather You Shot Me Down"

Official video for The Urban Voodoo Machine's 2012 Valentine single "Rather You Shot Me Down". Directed by Sin Bozkurt and Anthony Ratcliffe. 

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

"Dr. John meets Tom Waits in some sort of Tarantino universe. This loosely wound London collective plays bourbon soaked Gypsy Blues like you have never heard it before."
