Floating Music for the Endless Summer Nights

Ooh, I have found music, which I like very much.
Music, which sounds to me like it should be listened to


when running through the fields...


... making a strawberry straw


... or wandering in the garden alone




... near the nightly scent of the Philadelphus


... under the night sky.

Decide yourself: The Dø

No, sorry, she sounded a bit whiney for me.

Thanks, I'm really liking that - listening to it now :) Good serving suggestions, too :)

Um, what on earth is that strawberry thing?

Taiga the Fox said...

Well, Dave, I agree... that doesn't really sound as hilarious like e.g. Abba, but I like her whining quite much. Actually, I like whining. Some say even I whine much. Don't know about that, though.

OPC, glad you liked them :)
Instructions for the straw: Pick up one grass like Timothy-grass. Pick up as many wild strawberries as you can find. Stick the grass through them and voilá, you've got a portable strawberry carrier (or a necklace) and red hands.

Wild strawberries? Wow - they look much nicer and juicier than the tame ones.

Taiga the Fox said...

Yep, yep, free the berries!

Taiga the Fox said...

Seriously, haven't you tasted
these?

Liberr(t)y!

Erm, no, I've never found wild strawberries anywhere. Haven't seen the film, either, come to think of it...

Or if I have eaten them, they'd been tamed.

Taiga the Fox said...

Hmm... the taste of the wild ones is something you definitely have to experience... it's so different to the tamed ones.

I haven't seen Mansikkapaikka either, sadly.

Actually, I have always thought strawberry is called strawberry because people kept the picked berries like that. [vanishes back to the forest]

[Good idea - there might be more berries]

Erm, I just thought they were grown in straw - don't know which is right, but I like your explanation much better :)

Occasional Poster of Comments said...

Well, neither, probably...

Talking of new music (somewhere amongst all the strawberries), I clicked on an advert on Pitchfork the other day - sounded like just my kind of thing: "Cat-Power-meets-Rachmaninov explosions on her piano", it said, and took me to a free download of a 6 track EP by someone called Brooke Waggoner. Just got around to listening to it - quite like it :) [Sighs] Well, obviously I do, or I wouldn't have posted the link... Anyway, not exactly explosions..., but I kind of see what they mean. There's more than a bit of Regina Spektor in there, too.

[Finishes listening]

Hmm, having said that, though, I think I much prefer The Dø.

Thanks for callng by my blog. I listened to the music and on first listen don't dislike it but need to try again as the vocalist is unusual but then I am receptive to unusual sounds. Bye!

OPC, thanks for the music, I liked it :)

Oh, hello Kissa, it's always a pleasure to have a Cornish cat as a visitor :)
