ESNAVI – SOMEDAY

I’m loving this song by Esnavi. It was brought to my attention when watching one of  my favourite web channel’s shows on YouTube -Black&SexyTV’s Roomie, Lover, Friend. 

 The Milwaukee native’s name is as multifaceted as her album: Eclectic, Soulful, Natural, Authentic, Vivacious, and Intriguing – E S N A V I.

Such a beautiful voice, with so much power in her lyrics, I have it on repeat.

The song, ‘Someday’ makes for an uplifting listen, reminding me of greats such as Jill Scott and India.Arie.

Happy Sunday.

THIEF

Thief, formally known as Thief Urban, also known as PJ Wolf – is the boy from Oz with beats for days. Think Jamie Lidell and Goyte, with a bit of Chet Faker thrown in for good measure. The electronic pop project is pleasing and that voice…

FUTURAMA 3.0. THE CREDITS THAT COULD.

It’s the 3D test shot that’s going viral at the moment, and it’s not hard to see why. Futurama may have had its bookends bound shut by FOX, but the animated series, created and moulded by the people who brought us the Simpsons, is still a cult fave. Many people (myself included) want the show back and would have revelled in one more series. Instead we’ve been teased with a little unknown animator and his test shot conceptualising the Futurama title sequence in 3D. Ironically this version would have fitted well in the shows tradition of remixing their title sequences now and then. More importantly – it’s a stunning remodel of an already vibrant introduction.

SUNDAY MUSINGS.

Sunday’s are supposedly lazy days. I never get that. It’s certainly more chilled, but it’s also the day I feel most creative and curious, perhaps because I can’t really be distracted to do much else. I can scour the net for long articles, read books and draw and write from dawn till midnight. Sunday’s comes with this continuous sense of urgency that the weeks about to end and i need to make sure I fit everything I wanted to do during the old week into one day. Before a new week of things I have to do consume me.

Anyway, here’s something from Thenublk.

 

It may not resonate with all of you, but it’s a great insight into the lives of others. Wonderfully cut, shot and produced. An articulate commentary from a smart young woman about life in one of London’s gentrified hotspots, as a young black woman.
