Sharon Van Etten & Angel Olsen - Like I Used To (Acoustic)

"Like I Used To (Acoustic)" the new song by Sharon Van Etten & Angel Olsen, out now on Jagjaguwar.
STREAM/BUY: https://jagjag.co/like-i-used-to-acoustic

Lyrics:
Will the marker stain the skin?
Stole the dress I saw you in
Now nothing comes to mind.
Saw a life as override,
One more session overdrive.
The ceiling is the roof

Change address and draw a line
Show my friends the silver lines
Call my family just to know they’re there

Sleepin’ in late like I used to
Crossing my fingers like I used to
Waiting inside like I used to
Avoiding big crowds like I used to

Crawl the field and let you in
Brand my heart I found you in
To say nothing’s more apart
Will my lover be there, stay
Follow them to less the pain
The ceiling must be wrong

Well my head’s gone today
Sell my past for a way
to sing and have something left to say
Pray my hands, pray my voice
Give the reason, take away
Make believe an order for to stay

Lighting one up like I used to
Dancing all alone like I used to
Giving it up like I used to
Falling in love like I used to

Open my heart like I used to
Making out long like I used to
Holding hands openly, rights to
taking what’s mine like I used to

Like I used to
(like I used to)
Like I used to
(like I used to)

Wednesday  Music : Sessions with Julie Byrne - "Emeralds"

"Sessions are intimate performances filmed exclusively for Portals. In our latest Session, the Seattle-based singer-songwriter Julie Byrne performs 'Emeralds'"

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
A gentle entry into Wednesday. Music as Meditation.  Nature and  human sound  in harmony. City saviour. "Emeralds" seems all the more fitting as a celebration of my birth country. The island of Emerald .  Which I shall be revisitng this summer. To see those forty shades of green exist beyond a nostalgic notion. But also to discover some lesser known, impromptu, wild Irish gigs and jigs.

 In the meantime, let's enjoy some gentle wanderings, courtesy of Julie Byrne. Who brought music to a gentle whisper, who tamed the towering Union Chapel with a soft reproach, requesting its low loghts go even lower, so that the gentleness of her performance would not be disturbed by the sight of the silent listening audience?  More likely a wish for a more intimate rapport through the dimming of the ligjht.  A commanding performance on all counts! 

Thought for Friday
Music as Poetry

Lyrics:

I know you think I got it all figured out 'cus
I walk around like my head's in the clouds but
I'm just a boy with his heart pourin' out of his head

I wish that you could see the pain that I've seen and
All of the times I spent being not me
I hope you know that it's not always happy in my head

'Cus I don't know
The perfect road to go down
but I know

I'm trying my best
I'm trying my best to be okay
I'm trying my best but every day it's so hard

And I'm holding my breath
I'm holding my breath 'til I can say
All of the words I wanna say
From my heart

If you really wanted I could let you inside
It's been so long and I've got nothing left to hide
Would you believe me if I told you that I've got flaws

Now it's time to let the curtains unfold
And tell all the stories that I didn't want told
I let it out so I unburden my soul I won't stop

'Cus I don't know
The perfect road to go down
but I know

I'm trying my best
I'm trying my best to be okay
I'm trying my best but every day it's so hard

And I'm holding my breath
I'm holding my breath 'til I can say
All of the words I wanna say
From my heart

I'm trying my best
I'm trying my best to be okay
I'm trying my best but every day it's so hard

And I'm holding my breath
I'm holding my breath 'til I can say
All of the words I wanna say
From my heart

Joni Mitchell - River (Official Music Video)

Just in time for Christmas, Joni Mitchell has debuted the first official music video for “River,” her wistful contribution to the Christmas songbook, taken from her landmark 1971 album Blue.

Animation by Skazka Studios
Directed by Matvey Rezanov, in memory of his father Mikhail Rezanov

Joni Mitchell Archives Vol. 1: The Early Years (1963-1967) has been nominated for the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Historical Album. It is the 17th Grammy nomination Mitchell has received since her first in 1969. To date, she has won nine Grammy Awards. That could change on Monday, January 31 when the 64th Annual Grammy Awards show will be broadcast live on CBS.

A few days before the show, the Recording Academy will honor Mitchell as its 2022 MusiCares Person of the Year during a star-studded event on January 29. Jon Baptiste, Black Pumas, Brandi Carlile, Leon Bridges, Mickey Guyton, Herbie Hancock, Graham Nash, Maggie rogers, and James Taylor are among the artists set to perform at the show, which will raise funds for MusiCares’ charitable programs and relief efforts.

*******************

Welcome to the official YouTube channel of Joni Mitchell, whose songs “River,” “Both Sides Now," “California,” and albums ‘Clouds,’ ‘Ladies of the Canyon’ and ‘Blue’ compose only a fragment of a multi-disciplinary artistic output that has been embraced across generations, inspired multitudes of artists, and earned every conceivable accolade.

One of the world’s most remarkable and beloved artists, Mitchell has influenced musicians across a vast cross-section of genres with her ethereal songs that reflect social and environmental ideals. The prolific singer-songwriter-painter-poet has not only written and produced her music, but also designed most of her album covers and packaging. A journey into Joni Mitchell’s artistry is one of a highly original, harmonically innovative, and emotionally charged, familiar yet fresh adventure.

Lyrics:
I remember way back
When I felt only ennui
Like nothing could complete me

No promise of a rising son
Illuminating everyone
The very thought defeating

But man alive what a blinding light
It must be what it’s like when worlds collide
Especially when he sees her
Pretty soon he’ll tease her

I was on the road so long
My laboured love bore only song
And not one of them a keeper

But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
I know I’d try and find the will to be strong
But am I strong enough
I once built a bower
I could build you a home
Together forever
But forever anon is still not long enough

The look of fear was in your eyes
And I could see myself as a child
Such a devastating feeling
How I wished I could go back in time
But all I could do was apologise
Right then your eyes were healing
Healing

But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
I know I’d try and find the will to be strong
But am I strong enough
I once built a bower
I could build you a home
Together forever
But forever anon is still not long enough

Oh I have been cain
But I want to be able
Been a drunken fool
But I wanted to be stable
Enough to lay every one of my cards out on the table
I hope it’s not too late for us to find a way through

But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
I know I’d try and find the will to be strong
But am I strong enough
I once built a bower
I could build you a home
Together forever
But forever anon is still not long enough
I went looking inside myself for a hope
Found only a sapling in search of an oak
But it’s a start my love
Oh it’s a start my love
But am I strong enough

Weekend Music from David Ford - Brighton, May 2015 - O'Sullivan's Jukebox

'David Ford playing "O'Sullivan's Jukebox" from his EP "The Arrangement", after a mention for charity Reverse Rett of which David is an ambassador'

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
Do we stay put and gain not much more than a beer gut? Or do we move away and gain a life less 'safe' less routine, with more chance of freedom and of creativity? Whilst acknowledging early influences, they come accompanied with an awareness. To stay would have limited us, destroyed our youthful hopes, drink our temporary escape, a life played out to the habitual sounds of music jukeboxed, tinned not fresh and live.

Not a sentence I ever thought I would write but hey that’s lush live music in Islington for you.

Speaking of which, Daylight Music continues without us as we have run away from the city of spring dreams to soak up some Maltese rainshine. So go this week, get thee to Daylight ye Londoners. It promises to be a fairytale afternoon. Oh and live is best but it’s great to have these live recordings too!
