So there's good news, and bad news. The good news is that our blogger Graeme has returned from his Caribbean Christmas trip! The bad news is that - and I blame the SPF 50+ sunblock for this - he is disappointingly untanned. Beautifully bronzed or not, he's back and yet somehow, I've still been tasked with (read: fought with Fight Club level skills to write) today's Tunesday! To be fair, it's only because he's creating what could be considered the post to end all posts* (#nopressure) to go up on Thursday. Tell your grandma, your best friend, and your second cousin twice removed's neighbour's dog's hairdresser's regular encyclopaedia salesman!
On to today's pick "Flaws." Bastille has a more electronic/synthesised version of this song on their album Bad Blood, but: Hi my name is Marla-Joy, and I'm a straight-up sucker for an acoustic performance/set. That and the live version is beautiful regardless of personal musical inclinations. Everything about the soulful ballad enraptures you - the theme of 'flaws,' the emotion with which Dan Smith sings, the way the band creates the music with just a guitar and their bodies... It feels right.
In addition to my love of the song, Flaws seemed like the perfect choice because of OrangeMouth's focus, however the band has so much good music (both of their own and covers) that it would definitely be worth your while to check them out if you haven't already!
And that's me for the day!
Until next time...
