It’s a bank holiday weekend in the UK and the sun is shining. So in electrical language 112 I’m trying to achieve a relaxed long weekend / holiday vibe. Let’s see:

Science For Girls
Northern Lights (featuring Boots Ottestad)
and 14 Days (featuring Bronwen Exter)

Five AMJust Say Anything

Karmacoda – Turn

Serena Ryder -Brand New Love

The Endless – Lee Miller
Edit: this is from Adriana and david of The Endless, and explains the title:

The song is called Lee Miller because it was inspired by a photography exhibit we saw of the work of Lee Miller, a photographer from the 1930s – 1950s. She was originally this gorgeous model for artists like Man Ray and is seen in a lot of his iconic photographs. When she started doing photography herself, she became a war correspondent in WWII for Vogue magazine and published some of the most gut-wrenching, harrowing pictures of bodies in concentration camps and Nazis who’d committed suicide and the like. She photographed herself in Hitler’s bathtub shortly after the Allies took Munich. I was just so struck by this woman who was so many other peoples’ muse, an objectified femininity, and then when she did her own artwork it was utterly different, so dark and beautiful.

I highly recommend googling her work, it’s pretty interesting.

…er, in a nutshell. That was the jumping off point for the song.

This week’s soundbed music is Stillness by Kavi. The title music is by Tragic Shell Suit Disaster.
