Music Monday: Syd Matters

syd matters

local artist to: france

riyl: midlake, the eels, french folk

syd matters is jonathan morali from somewhere in france, but you wouldn’t know it from listening to his music. listening to the track, hi life, i thought it was new music from the denton band, midlake. i like the steady progression of his albums with brotherocean being my favorite.

listen & love

F**k Me…

yann tiersen was amazing on saturday! so incredible that i haven’t listened to anything else all morning.

i feel very lucky to have been able to see the frenchman twice within one year, the last time being with  my little sis at the granada theater in april 2010. i had a horrible cold that day and even called in sick to work  just so i would feel good for the show that night.

i’m still kinda speechless about the show at nuemos. it was completely magical and mesmerizing. i love when artists constantly swap instruments during a set. yann played the guitar, mandolin, melodica, moog synthesizer and of course his violin. ahhh, the violin!

i still get goosebumps just watching the videos. i hope you do too. and i love yann’s pairing of a striped hoodie with a flannel shirt on top ♥

yann tiersen also made my favorite live shows of 2010 list.
