I bought Corinne Bailey Raes CD some weeks ago ♥
I don’t really buy a lot CDs. So me buying a CD means I really really like the music (or the CD cover ;P). But this was special. I wanted the CD really badly. After listening to it at a friends house in Tokyo I really liked it and listened to it on you tube a lot, then I borrowed a friends CD. I wanted to buy it at a regular shop. The first shop only had one of her CDs which didn’t have my favourite song, the next shop didn’t have any of her CDs. The third shop I went to was a CD shop but they only had classical music and opera -_-” So I gave in and ordered it on amazon. Altough I had resolved to buy the CD in a real shop *sigh*
Once I had the CD all that didn’t matter, I was really happy listening to the CD (after I had my mum extract the two CDs from the case, I was afraid of breaking them, they were stuck firmly).
Definately one of my favourite CDs. I really love her interpretations, they go straight to the heart. Her songs are so evocative and her voice is beautiful… I’m listening to the first of the two CDs right now 🙂 I put them into separate cases, btw ♣
Akane is an Artist I watched in Kobe… She was performing near the train station, singing and playing her keyboard in the icy wind…With a friend? manager? handing out leaflets to the crowd and selling CDs.
<– I bought her CD. It’s just 3 tracks, but it has the lyrics! (She signed it. And she wrote she’s wishing me a nice trip! 😀 ) Her music has a very naive touch to it, and it’s refreshing listening to it…
Check out her homepage!
You can listen to one of her tracks on her blog (youtube video embedded on the right side bar)
I want to introduce one of my favourite singers ♥
Nicky Wells, from the UK. She has one of the most amazing voices I’ve ever heard and I absolutely adore her musical style!! You can really feel there’s a deep meaning to her songs. It’s simply beautiful.
And even better live. ♣ Since I don’t live in London I keep listening to the tracks on her myspace site all the time. My absolute favourite is “silver anklets“. I really hope many more people will get to listen to her music!!!

This thursday I went to OUR DISO MINDS ‘s concert♥
OUR DISO MINDS = OUR DISORIENTED MINDS. They play folk/pop
I really like their sound…Although most their songs are kind of sad-ish… But Mira-lu’s singing is awesome! I loved the guitar too! This time it was “Just the two of us” (just Mira-lu and the guitar player)
<– I bought their CD too♥
The CD is really well done. (get more pics of the cover shooting here and here) I liked the LIVE even better though. Whether that’s because I generally like just singing& guitar or because the atmosphere at live concerts is just so much more intense I don’t know. The location was also cool btw. It was at TUNNEL in Vienna. They have live music every day from 9 pm! Many of their concerts are free (you give whatever amount you feel appropriate). I’d love to go there with some friends just to hang out… (I was alone this time… ):
Well, check out their songs on their myspace site!! I hope there’ll be more concerts in the future! (Although the next one seems to be in switzerland…)
♣Well, that’s it for today♣
