Anna Chalon is back and now goes under the name of Kiddo. Here’s a teaser of her new song “La Parisienne”, the entire videoclip should be online in the next two weeks, according to what she told me on Facebook.
Her first album, Where to?, is expected in fall 2012. I can’t wait for the release. Meanwhile, you can discover some of her new songs on Kiddo’s soundcloud.
Vancouver based Evy Jane‘s self-titled EP is the latest EP of my (digital) library. They define temselves as an experimental R&B project, but they’re actually so much more than simply R&B, since they’re very inspired by the UK scene, which is probably why I like this EP so much.
During my recent trip to Iceland, we noticed that Icelanders are very creative people. Katie, one of our fellow travellers, made me discover this local indie band called 1860.
Today, I’d like to share their song “Alunde (Aluia)”.
I couldn’t tell if this song is their best, but the story behind it is quite fantastic. The song was actually recorded in a Toyota Yaris with an iPhone 3GS in one take. Yes, in one single take. And it went straight to the album. How cool is that?
In icelandic, “Heima er bezt” translates into “There’s no place like home”.
After caving, hunting northern lights (we unfortunately didn’t see any), swimming in the Blue Lagoon’s hot water, we ended up in this little house of food called Eldhús, which you might be able to see if you’re in Reykjavik these days, in the middle of the Tjörnin lake. We had the chance to attend a very nice dinner cooked by Chef Thomas Sellers and meet some locals at the same time.
This last minute trip was amazing. Iceland wasn’t really at the top of my must-go list, but it is now. I can’t wait to go back and discover all the delicious things Iceland has to offer that I haven’t experienced yet (and yes, I think I’ll keep going back until I actually see a northern light with my own eyes).
More pictures can be found on my Flickr (including some pics of Reykjavik).
PS: Sorry about the vintage filter, but it was almost mandatory since everything was so dark ;)
