Morcheeba – Parts of the Process

So I was trying for a different album every day, but sadly (or happily as one may look at it), I’ve been listening to this Morcheeba album the last couple days. With coffee in hand and the sweetness of my baby sleeping, I figured now was a good time to update my posts. Because I maybe only have 30 minutes until the kiddos are up full swing lol. 

I absolutely adore Morcheeba so once this cd got into the player, it stayed there forever. A part of me just didn’t want to take it out. Like your best friend riding around with you, I just didn’t wanna let it go. So I stretched it out. 

The track ‘the sea’ and ‘undress me now’ are my favorites. Very smooth female vocals with trip-hop sounds.  This is a best hits album of sorts… The first track takes me back to college days when I first stumbled across their music at a tower records where they had listening stations set up with headphones… Oh how I miss tower records… And I’m still one of those people who will inspect the packaging and read the liner notes to ascertain more information about the band.

There will be some art today… I can feel it… Caffeine, sugar, and a great mood while my kiddos catnap later is all I need. 

There is a second disc which I’ll probably check out on my computer when there’s time, but for now I’m just the mom dropping off my kiddos blasting ‘trigger hippie’ as they hop out.

Good vibes today:)


OneRepublic – Oh My My

Let me just start out with saying I’m a huge OneRepublic fan and was lucky enough to catch them live last time they toured… Love this band. 

So… No art inspiration last night after getting little sleep with the fun of nursing… All mombies need caffeine so I figured what better way to cope with my kiddos yelling at eachother during the morning rush other than  some Starbucks and the second cd currently in my car. 

This is their 4th album and it’s a lil dif but a great listen all the same. I think my fav track is ‘kids’…  It’s fun and peppy and makes me think of being young and stress free.  Simple times at times.

Then my other two fav tracks on repeat are ‘born’ and ‘choke’… I could listen to the whole album over and over again, I enjoyed it so much.

I don’t know if they recorded any of it in Asia but that’s what came to mind for me. When I listened to parts of ‘born’ the images that I thought of involved Japanese cherry trees and Asian pears… I know it’s odd lol… I just felt like it’d be a song that I would listen to if I were in South Korea for a week or even Japan.

When I listen to ‘choke’ it makes me think of a love that is no more… I can’t go back to it, even if I wanted to. Regret. But in all that I’m still doing okay. Those are the emotions I feel listening to this song. I’ve kissed a few frogs over the years while looking for my prince. Not all of them were frogs from the start though, if that makes sense.

I don’t think this cd will leave my car except to burn a copy so that the original can stay safe on my bookcase. 

If I get time and ample energy, I’m thinking I’d sketch something with cherry blossom trees maybe amidst a background wash of  blue… Oh the possibilities:)
