The xx / Angels
tonight’s sunset kept begging me for attention, so i jumped up and gave it a high-five .
it was stellar .
Mr. Little Jeans / Rescue Song
An RAC remix .
music monday . week of 06252012 to 07022012 .
there’s so much new music coming out lately and not enough time to listen to them all! however, i have been obsessing over a few this past week . purity ring’s new album shrine will be released on july 24 . currently, “fineshrine” has me under a shadowy spell . my little sister introduced me to daughter’s 2011 ep the wild youth while on our ten-day hawaiian vacation . it wasn’t until i flew back home to realize they’ve released a new ep this year entitled his young heart . the lyrics to “landfill” leaves me in shambles, as well as “medicine” and “youth” . fiona apple’s the idler wheel… album is pretty great, full of emotion and tasteful instrumentation; however, i wish that she stuck to her old roots . maybe, for me, she could never outdo her 1999 album, when the pawn… but i digress .
my dearest instagram friend, michelle grenier (@michiesharine), and i have been emailing each other little mixes the past month . it’s crazy how our music tastes are so similar . she’s emailed me three delicious mixes for summer: clouds, moonlight, and sunshine (i’ll be posting a summer mix later today) . the song that stood out the most for me was “lighthouse” by patrick watson, a little gem in her clouds mix . the soft piano gently lifts you up and glides you across the sky, overlooking green pastures and emerald seas . if you’re a fan of the lovely and eccentric björk, then you should give ryat a listen . her vocals are very very similar to björk, it’s almost uncanny .
Astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson was asked in an interview with TIME magazine:
“What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?”
This is his answer.
“[…] So that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up – many people feel small because they’re small and the Universe is big – but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant you want to feel like a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you. That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive.”
