Friday music choice 2.3.2018

Not sure how i managed to miss this beautiful song when it came out at Christmas last year but as its snowing heavily in England it made me think of Christmas, so here it it. Tom Chaplin (former frontman of Keane) singing the haunting Midnight Mass.


Welcome to Wellington

Announcement from our train conductor as we arrived in Wellington station this morning:

“Good morning everyone, Campbell here your train manager.  Welcome to Wellington station. Id like to thank you all for travelling on this Metlink Hutt Valley service this morning.

Id also like to apologize for this service running on time this morning. I know that’s not the norm and its an inconvenience. I noticed a lot of you running to the platforms as you were surprised the train was already at the station.

It is something new we are trying out, so bear with us and we’ ll see how we go as we make the transition”.

Takk Norway!

Some of the few good things about Youtube (apart from hilarious cat related videos) is stumbling across new music from talented artists you’ve never heard of.

This year I’ve discovered some great music courteousy of Norway. First Astrid Smeplass, then Aurora Aksnes and now Sigrid Solbakk Raabe.

So here for your viewing pleasure is two snippets of Sigrid’s work. First is ‘Strangers‘ which i guarantee will be your summer/winter jam (depending on what hemisphere you’re in) and secondly is the haunting ‘Dynamite‘ from the  2017 Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
