January- Keepin’ it Real
As a tradition, the Robinson Family go on an adventure on New Years Day. A killer wind and drastic tides of the East Coast was our destination. After our walk on the beach, we had fish & chips with a classic cup of tea. A wander through the amusements and I had some loose change to pay for fresh donuts for the family.
Since I’ve been back at my home in South Yorkshire (I study in the West), I have been trying to do my Dissertation. Being a final year University student has been, up to this point- beyond difficult. I’ve chosen a crazy ass subject totally irrelevant to my Counselling Therapy Degree (I’m researching the definition of creativity and discussing it’s biological foundations). But I am determined to do well, so this week I am bound to my research papers.
I have found solace in some of my favourite records. If you haven’t already given any of these a listen, please go ahead and check them out!
Now, Now- Threads (check them out here!) This band hail from Minnesota and were formerly called ‘Now, Now Every Children’. This record is the perfect combination of indie rock and synth. If I could find the vinyl in stock somewhere, I’d be straight in there waving my hands around potentially fangirling.
Balance & Composure – The Things We Think We’re Missing (check them out here!) I have loved B&C since I first started college, and their latest record is just. well. brilliance.
Lorde- Pure Heroine (check her out here!) Now, Lorde for me didn’t necessarily stand out for me on first listen, but the track ‘Ribs’ I absolutely adore. She is so young yet creates an insane pop record.
So what records do you love at the moment?
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! x
