Today I feel like a child again. It’s Monday morning, late, and yawning over a cup of coffee looking out of the window onto a gorgeous blue sky, I realise that today I have nowhere to be and that June, my least favorite month of the year, is almost coming to an end. And because today is slow, and sleepy, and cuddly, and sunny, Yo La Tengo‘s Summer Sun is a perfect fit. And if you happen to be sick of that record already, and prefer something slightly more twee-with-girl-vocals, I suggest Seapony, mainly because OHMIGOD THAT’S SUCH A CUTE BAND NAME!!! but also because it sounds exactly like what I’d want to listen to all day long today. While writing. And reading. And writing some more.
My name has five letters in it, and comes up in some Bright Eyes songs. I am (apparently) an artist, with too much time on her hands. Well, enough to blog (almost) daily. I am 1/4 (the smallest one, actually) of Lazy Acre Records; I also write & photograph for a
localmagazine based in Englaaand and makeused to draw musically-inspired comics for a canadian mag (RIP Inscribed). As if that wasn't enough, I book bands for a local experimental music venue called Subterrarium: we rock pretty hard. Sometimes I can be quite cute. I used tostill have a crush on Marty McFly; I like baking, overusing semi-colons, the smell of the sea, and thunderstorms.
I tend to be quite the busy bee, but if you make VERY sexy music and want me to listen and enjoy and possibly even (!!) write about it, shoot me a mail, baby. music(at)alicetragedy(dot)org
