Attention close friends with big pockets

September 5, 2010

My 21st birthday is coming up, and I want to have this:

It’s classy as hell and belongs to David Tarcali from Budapest.

And his clothes are as simple and classic as his bike.

Check out the video below:

“The Extraordinary Ordinary Life Of José González”

August 27, 2010

José González’ music is fragile and barely-there; his brushstrokes span such a wide sonic spectrum with such a tiny bit of paint that the colors become dilute. His nylon strings and vocal chords stretch themselves from the bottom to the top, past thinness into invisibility, never ever breaking. It is this ambitious reach with such modest instrumentation that makes his music so porous. His songs have no outline.

It is that quality that draws me into his intimate recordings, but simultaneously makes me wonder–could that translate into his live show? His subtlety is perfect for headphones, or for my bedroom, but I’m afraid that his vibrations are too fragile for the buzzing swarm-of-bees energy inside a concert hall.

That is why I was surprised to find out about the upcoming documentary about him. This will obviously not be a portrayal of the violent self-destruction of the dramatic, bipolar savant musician (or maybe it will, in which case AWESOME) but hopefully it will shine a light into the microscopic nooks and crannies of an amazingly talented songwriter.

Yet I can’t figure out what about it compelled me to watch the full fifteen minutes.

Oh shit! Drama! OBERHOFER–YOU EITHER LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM OR, YOU KNOW, MAYBE YOU DON’T HAVE A REALLY STRONG OPINION ON THE MATTER.

Yours Truly got this song stuck in my head–or was it Shayla’s birthday party? Right after Jenny From The Block?
