This is just too adorable not to share.

We only know a few things about The 2 Bears

  • The 2 Bears are a duo of humans dressed up in bear costumes
  • Their names are Raf Rundell and Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip)
  • They make unique electronic music
  • They’ve released two EPs on Southern Fried Records so far this year. The first back in March titled Follow the Bears and the most recent one released this month titled Curious Nature
  • They think they’re bears

The last shadow puppets

leave a comment »

I believe a song is only as good as its lyrics. Everything else matters, but my favorite songs all have phrases that I adore and meaning that I can relate to. Here are some of my favs (:

The Last shadow puppets – My mistakes were made for you

Snow Patrol – Set the fire to the third bar

Sia – Breathe me

Adele – Set fire to the rain

Razorlight – Wire to wire

The last song is the most played song on my ITunes – I’m such an emo kid.

Metronomy – The Look

Someone called me a dreamer, a romantic.

Aren’t i allowed to be? To be young &naive, and believe a little. To see something beautiful and appreciate it just the way it is. Not to compete, just to accept. Just to love, to laugh.

People take things to seriously – I’m just here to be happy. What are you working towards?

I wasn’t so sure about gg for Faithless + Friendly Fires, mainly cause I’m kinda broke this month and I wanted to save some dough.

But 2 ppl I know backed out at the last minute – so I took it as a sign, said fuck it, and signed right on.

Going to see them tonight (: (: Pretty fkin excited.

Laneway

leave a comment »

I had all intentions to do a Laneway festival Part 2 & 3.. BUT I DIDN’T HAVE TIME. So busy.

So I’m just gg to do a Laneway wrap up.

The lineup was fantastic – these ppl have some SERIOUS talent.

I love watching music live, and I really appreciate excellent musicianship. I know that term usually applies to classical musicians, but it takes shitload of practice to be good at any instrument and I believe that anyone who is able to make good music deserves recognition.

Here are some of my fav songs from the day:

Warpaint – Undertow

Ladyhawke – Love don’t live here

Foals – Cassius

Yeasayer – One

Yeasayer – Mondegreen

Love love love. We also got quoted in the Straits Times – Life Section.

Yea we all look like shit, cause we had been in the rain + humidity for a few hrs. But whatevs, bring on the marraige proposals!
