Question of the day.

Hi guys. 🙂

Today, my question for you is:

What would be your dream holiday/vacation? 🙂

My answer:

I think it would be visiting all of my favourite countries, which I have mentioned many times here, along with what I’d like to see/do there and why I’d like to go there so I won’t do that again now. The only thing is that it would probably also be extremely draining for me to squeeze all of them into one holiday, and I’m not sure I’d like it to be this way.

How about you? 🙂

Lydia Cole – “Dream”.

Hi people! 🙂

This is a song from an artist that’s relatively new to me, but I already like the smoothness of her voice very much, and the chill, soft, sometimes also a bit dark feel to her music. Lydia Cole is from New Zealand, but currently lives in Berlin and tours around western Europe. I hope you like it. 🙂

Kate Bush – “And Dream Of Sheep”.

Hi guys. 🙂

One of the more popular musicians that are popular more widely, not just somewhere locally, and whom I actually really like, is Kate Bush. I find something really resonating with me in her music. Not all of it, but most. And I like her voice a lot, though I know quite a few people who don’t and I can’t understand why. 😀 So, I’d like to share with you a few, probably just two, but maybe more, I’m not sure yet, songs by her, that I either just really really like, or have some fabulous associations with, and I have fabulous associations with many Bush’s songs simply because I started to discover her music at a really fabulous time in my life. So here’s the song from more of the latter category – great associations – called “And Dream Of Sheep.

Gwenno – Hunros (Dream).

Hi!

Do you remember Gwenno? I shared one of her songs with you on my first day of blogging here. It was the single of the album “Le Kov” which was still to be released back then. It came out on 2nd March, and I have listened to it many times since then. “Le Kov” means A Place Of Memory, and I must say, that every time I went to this place, I definitely didn’t want to leave and wanted to go deeper and deeper, it’s so mystical and beautiful, and I just love Gwenno’s psychedelic sounds.

Gwenno is from Wales, but apart from being Welsh, she is also Cornish, and Cornish is her second mother tongue. Which is brilliant, since Cornish had extincted, and now is being revived and has only about 1000 speakers. I love Cornish, and if I love a language, I want to hear it in music, but I’ve always found it very hard to find music in Cornish. And this album seems just for me because it’s entirely in Cornish!

“Hunros” means dream in Cornish. The first time I’ve heard it was on BBC in Cerys Matthews’ programme, where she interviewed Gwenno, before the album was released. I heard it, and I just fell in love. It spoke to me. It is so full of longing, and a very speciffic kind of sadness. Gwenno said it is a lullaby she wrote for her son – Nico. A bit weird for a lullaby, but lovely.
