Latest Finds

So this blog site has been dormant for almost a year now. Haha! I should work on writing more and more. Sometimes I am just too lazy to write something or I just feel like I have nothing interesting to write about. So now, I am writing about some things that really caught my attention. There is no category as to what these things are. They are just the things, mostly songs, that I like very much lately. Here we go…

 

1. Cherry Trees by The Weepies – I love The Weepies!! I still cannot get over their “Living in Twilight” and “Riga Girls”, from the album “Say I Am You, even if I have listened to them a hundred times!! But lately I haven’t heard anything new from them. Doesn’t have to be a latest release (they already released their latest album “Sirens” and it’s good too!) but something else than those two songs. Then I stumbled upon their 2004 concert in Ohio and heard them sing “Cherry Trees”. Deb Talan claimed that she borrowed Pablo Neruda’s words form one of his poems and wrote a song about that. The words were “I want to do with you what Spring does with the cherry trees.” Now how can you go wrong with that? I love Pablo Neruda and a Weepies song from Neruda is just perfect!! You can listen to the whole concert at Archive.org here. I also posted a video below courtesy of Youtube. Sorry I can’t find anything else in the internet so just close your eyes and listen to the song if you are not into all those dancing (which is not bad actually).

 

2. The Greatest Bastard by Damien Rice – Another artist that I love is Damien Rice. Damien Rice is one of the artists who I prefer to sing live than the album versions. There’s just pure emotion when he sings and you can feel that he means every word. The Greatest Bastard is one track from his latest album “My Favourite Faded Fantasy” which was released last October 2014. As always, this song is well written and packed with emotions and it will even break your heart watching him sing it. “So please don’t let on that you don’t love me. Cause I know you do, I know…”. Below is the video from Youtube. Look at him at 3:55 and you will see what I mean.

 

3. The Lord is My Light by Joel Case – This one I have heard quite a few months ago and only now did I realize how beautiful it is. It is a simple and raw declaration of who God is in your life. The simple lyrics and the moving melody makes you just want to raise your hands in worship and just declare every word. “Oh glorious freedom of the children of God. I am one of them.” That’s just something. Lately, I want to move away from heavy electric guitar-y (if there’s such a term) songs and just get lost in these acoustic, free worship, songs. “Songs of deliverance. Songs of freedom coming down, freedom raining down.” And then he just bursts into that shout as if wallowing, embracing that freedom. Very powerful! Below is the Youtube video by Cageless Birds.

 

4. Shure SE215 – I know, I know. What is this doing in this post? Haha! Well this post is about the things that I love and Shure SE215 is what helped me appreciate these songs even more. One of the best IEMs out there at a very affordable price. I was able to buy mine at P2,500.00 from a re-seller in olx.ph. Hehe. But I am loving every moment that I am wearing it. It has noise cancellation feature that lessens the outside noise and makes you hear the sound clearly. The best thing about it that I really love is how it fits in your ear. It is very comfortable that you can sleep while still wearing them earphones in your ear. The base is good for my liking and the clarity of the sound is perfect for the type of music that I listen to. I love it so much!

 

There you go! I will try to post some more about these things if it is what it will take for me to write more. Next time maybe I will post about movies, tv shows, or maybe something else. We’ll see…
