okay so some of you may know the vaccines , i mean quite a lot of you should and if not, where the hell have you been?! i don’t even know how to describe the vaccines, apart from being one of the best new bands to have come out of 2010 and will be sure to be dominating 2011 once their album ‘what did you expect from the vaccines?’ débuts in march. from what they’ve put out (wreckin’ bar, post break up sex, if you wanna, blow it up), you just know that they write brilliant songs that in my opinion anyone can enjoy, the song i’m recommending being wreckin’ bar (ra ra ra) . i just think that rock as it once was is gonna be coming back in the shape of this band and will be leading the way for many more bands to do the same in the future. it’s simple, they just make bloody great music.

so this week i’ve really been loving warpaint. i don’t really know what else to say other than they’re brilliant and everyone should listen to them. i just love the fool, i think it’s such a brilliant album, and every song on there is great. even the exquisite corspe ep is fantastic, elephants and beetles probably being my favourite songs from it, but my focus for this post is on their album. the song i’m reccommending today is composure, really love everything about this song, especially when the song changes just after the intro, i just love the way the drums and bass work, making this a favourite for me on this album. other songs you should check out: bees is another fantastic one i highly recommend that, undertow, baby… the whole album in general. so, this week: warpaint. enjoy.

  • at some point people will spread lies about you. when this happens, the worst thing to do is spread them back. be the bigger person and keep in mind that people who believe the lies aren't worth talking to anyway
  • don't put off breaking up when you know you want to; prolonging the situation only makes it worse. tell them honestly, simply, kindly but firmly. don't make a big production, don't make up an elaborate story; this will help you avoid a big tear-jerking scene. if you want to date other people, say so. be prepared for the boy to feel hurt and rejected. even if you've gone together for only a short time and haven't been too serious there's still a feeling of rejection when someone says she prefers the company of others to your exclusive company but if you're honest and direct and avoid making a flowery emotiona...

not to say that i don't like being around people, but spending every waking moment with others can be a little draining for an introvert like me

  • other people don't always want to be quiet and listen to music and read, so they talk and talk, and i just want to read my book
  • people are always like, "is everything okay?" when i'm not as energetic and smiley as i usually am
  • people get annoyed by the things i do, and likewise, i get annoyed by the things that they do
  • when i've been around people long enough, i feel as if i'm under a microscope, like i'm being watched

i’ve been really enjoying johnny flynn this week, maybe because of the amazing lyrics, or the beautiful guitar playing, or just for the fact that johnny has an amazing voice. or maybe all of them. he released been listening last year, which is a brilliant album, but i’ve been really stuck on a larum the past few days. i love it to pieces, i just think everything about it is brilliant. especially for me, the lyrics are so beautiful and poetic. not to mention johnny’s guitar playing just makes me feel like i know absolutely nothing about playing guitar. i'll reccommend a few songs , like tickle me pink, the wrote & the writ and brown trout and cold bread but anyway i’m rambling, johnny flynn everybody.
