Song Of The Day: Gin Wigmore, ‘Man Like That’

Gin Wigmore

 

You’ve probably never heard of Gin Wigmore, but you have heard her voice before. Her song “Don’t Stop” is currently being used by Lowe’s in their commercials, and “Oh My” was used for a number of television shows. The New Zealander could finally get her big break with her latest album Gravel & Wine which features the song “Man Like That.”

You’ve seen her grooving along with ‘Skyfall‘ stars Daniel Craig and Berenice Marlohe in the James Bond inspired Heineken ad, but it was her performance on Tuesday night’s episode of ‘The Tonight Show‘ that really made me love the song.

Check out the energetic, 1920s inspired video!

Song of the Evening – ‘Born to Die’ by Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey

This American bird is huge in Europe–especially Germany apparently, but wouldn’t you know I’m just now latching onto her.

For some (many?) reasons, a crap-ton of bloggers are hatin’ on Lana Del Rey.  Rather than focusing on the voice and moodiness of her music, they are concentrating on her alleged plastic surgery, her stage name, her “manipulation” by the A&R/record companies….all that crap.

Can we please just LISTEN and WATCH this young woman before we start stoning her in the town square, please?  What a bunch of Judgey McJudgersons–and by the way–the majority of Lana’s critics are women.  That’s pretty gee-dee shameful, if you ask me.

 

Lana’s sound and videos have been compared to the works of David Lynch, and I have to agree.  Particularly this video, Born to Die.

I’d like to hear what alla y’all think of this girl.  You can do a little research on her right here.  Let’s talk.

Song of the Day – ‘Promises Promises’ by Incubus

Promesse Promesse

 

Everybody know what an Incubus nut I am.  Say no more, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more…ANYdrool.  Here’s Promises Promises from the bands’ latest album, If Not Now, When?

And because I’m an oddball, here are the lyrics in Italian. Look ’em UP, Donna, if you’re so inclined.

Sono solo 23 per un’altra ora, prendere o lasciare
Io sono un fan di tuo e ho bisogno di un buon errore
Io non sono un peccatore o predicatore, tutto quello che ho è leggermente di mano
I giochi di prestigio per tutti i ragazzi della band

Bambino potrei essere il coniglio nel cappello?
Mi altalena se mi mano, la mano me la mazza

Sono sulla strada di minor resistenza
Preferisco rinunciare a che cedere a questa
Così mi prometti solo una cosa, vero?
Basta che non mi fanno mai promesse
nessuna promessa

Non ho mai fatto prima, promesse, promesse
Ma mi sto godendo l’illusione e le cose che il mio corpo dice
Ora mi vedi, ora non lo fai, oh quanto bene si scomparire
Quali sono in esecuzione da e posso interferire?

Bambino potrei essere il coniglio nel cappello?
Mi altalena se mi mano, la mano me la mazza

Sono sulla strada di minor resistenza
Preferisco rinunciare a che cedere a questa
Così mi prometti solo una cosa, vero?
Basta che non mi fanno mai promesse
nessuna promessa

Ti amo, Brandon Boyd.
