The greatest lyricist of our time may not be Adele or Justin Vernon, but rather a crazy and sometimes slightly angry and confused horse living on a farm in rural America. I have been obsessively following @weirdhorse on Twitter for the past couple of months, and his work is just getting better and better with time. Highlights include:
‘We found mud in a horse’s face, we found mud in a horse’s face’
‘I see you trotting round town with the pig I love and I’m like, forget hooves’
‘Nothing compares, nothing compares 2 hooves’
‘Want you to make me feel like I’m the only horse on the farm, like I’m the only one to eat from your palm’
…and Weird Horse’s most moving to date, ‘I’ve got the hooves like Jagger.’ Happy (weird) Friday.
‘and I can’t see clearly right now / I’m wasted / I’m so wasted on you’
It is the weekend before Valentines Day, so grab someone close and curl up to the sweet Australian crooning of Angus Stone. It is hard to believe/scary to think siblings could produce such a sexy song, but I am willing to let it slide and get lost in All the Colours’ steady guitar rifts, dizziness induing lyrics, and sway inducing sound… the whole thing warms you right up like a second glass of wine.
Love stoned, love wasted, I want it all. #indie
Today’s Untz: Midnight City / The Knocks ft. Mandy Lee (M83 cover)
‘the city is my church / it wraps me in the sparkling twilight’
Hopping on the bandwagon for this cover, because it leaves me totally floored after every listen. I couldn’t get sick of the original version of Midnight City if I tried, but it is great to hear it tossed around by The Knocks and with some fresh female vocals. Further evidence that everything that The Knocks touch turns to gold, and the perfect kind of sound to ride your way into the weekend. Music is my church. #untz
