BURIAL

i just downloaded burial's new 3-track EP and i'm really EXCITED about it, it sounds like burial but also fresh and has this incredible atmosphere to it, i love it. it cost £3.49 from the hyperdub website (wav download, not mp3... mp3 quality sucks ass and you really want good sound quality when you're listening to something like burial. right now i'm sitting here listening to it with my amp bass over-ear audiotechnica headphones i use for wriiting/recording/mixing and it sounds INSANE, like i'm in an audio arena with all these sounds bouncing around me)
ANYWAY i'm not a music critic but if you want an overview of what it sounds like (honestly you may as well just listen to it, it's only a bit over half an hour long) read here - http://drownedinsound.com/releases/16824/reviews/4144519

kindred is an absolute beast of a track though, my favourite at the moment, it's pretty dark but also uplifting. burial's sick mix of ambient/garage/dubstep is perfect, i can't listen to a lot of standard dubstep because all the wobble bass and gritty, dirty sounding synths get to me after a bit. burial's music has this sort of smooth, echoey, clean sound despite all the rain/thunder/burning/crackling sound effects. it's what i'd describe as round music, because when you listen to it, it surrounds you and sort of envelopes you.

VEGAN LIFE

april 23rd is my one year vegan anniversary! dinner this evening was a testament to how much my diet has improved - vegan-friendly pizza with garlic, tomatoes, onion, spinach and basil followed by a dessert (!) of warm tomato and avocado salad with balsamic vinegar
wish i'd taken a photo of it, but it was all too delicious to wait!

PARIS

some snaps from when me & my sister went to paris

DENIM

bought some new jeans from american apparel when i was in france (they had a sign up saying they were hiring... that NEVER happens here. i don't think AA is as popular over there). they fit perfectly because AA are considerate enough to make 27 jeans for those who are too big for 26 but a little too small for 28
god bless american apparel (i wanted levis but these were really too perfect to miss)

KALIFORNIA

i also watched kalifornia yesterday. brad pitt makes a very convincing and alarmingly sexy psychopathic serial killer, and juliette lewis is fantastic
