Weekend Tunes: PJ Harvey

If you haven't heard of PJ Harvey then, well, this will be quite the introduction. Polly Jean Harvey is from the UK and she is the only person to have won the Mercury Prize...

Weekend Tunes: Lana Del Ray

Heard this the other morning on Morning Glory, such a great track. The lyrics are a little obsessive (which is creepy) but she has a beautiful voice and I love the video. First track is called 'Blue Jeans' and second (because we always need a little bit...

Weekend Tunes: Isaac Hayes

Isaac Hayes is such a legend, a soul singer from Tennesse in the US. He has produced some very memorable tracks, but you may know him best as the voice of 'Chef' from Southpark. Isaac Hayes died in 2008 at the age of 65. This...

Weekend Tunes: Janine And The Mixtape

Clever New Zealanders are always the best. Meet Janine And The Mixtape, a group of talented folks, fronted by a lovely lass from Auckland, NZ, Janine who make good beats laced with really strong vocals.  They recently visited New York (where the below video was...

Weekend Tunes: Rob-O

Weekend Tunes: Blood Orange

I heard this on the radio the other day and just loved it. Maybe it was because I was driving first thing in the morning to walk Ollie along the beach and it just suited the mood? Either way, very cool. They have an 80's...

Weekend Tunes: Alexander Ebert

This song is so happy! I was introduced to this fellow by Charlotte Ryan, she thought I'd really like him; and I do! He certainly satisfies an aspect of my music taste, which I would have expected. Anyway, go have a listen. This tune is...

Weekend Tunes: Amy Winehouse

I know that there have been a lot of tragedies lately (Norway, my heart is breaking for you and Somalia in famine after having 2 years of no rain) but another tragedy; Amy Winehouse passed away last week. Only 27. Having just turned 28 myself recently, this...

Weekend Tunes: Stevie Wonder

Does this gentleman really need an introduction? This track reminds me of one of my very good friends, Sam, I like it when you hear things and you can instantly connect them to someone. httpv://youtu.be/wDZFf0pm0SE...
