Days of magic, nights of disco

...with April and May come the bright colours, fluorescent clothes, pink skies and hairs, red lips and mint nails, music festivals and neverending disco parties. And you can feel all that by listening to this mix by Suit, with great nu-disco and synth-wave songs that make you feel like you're back to the 80s: Stuck in The Sound, Yuksek, JupiterSébastien Tellier, Citizens!Tears For FearsSIMØNE, GhosthouseMiami Nights 1984, Little Boots and other great artists:

Dream of horses

If you're ever feeling blue, then write another 
song about your dream of horses... (Belle & Sebastian)

"I guess every girl goes through a photography phase
You know, horses... taking pictures of your feet." (Lost in Translation)

I've been listening to these two songs a lot lately and they both have a horse-themed videoTrust's video for "Candy Walls is a marvelous abstract piece with a 70s vibe, sort of inspired on Equus, directed by the photographer and film maker Eva Michon. Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski are the members of the duo Trust, and they also are the stars of the video! Robert has an amazing voice and he's quite charming too. He looks like a modern James Dean riding a motorcyle with a vintage brown jacket, and he also reminds me of River Phoenix on My Own Private Idaho

The Munk & Peaches video, beautifully directed by Lyall Coburn, shows us a cute girl who lives in a country house, one of these dreamy places like the one from Stealing Beauty, where she has horse pics on the walls of her bedroom and walks through yellow fields under the sun with a little horse. The song is a version of the Stephanie Mills disco classic "You can't Run From My Love".

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I am not young enough to know everything

... today it's my 22nd birthday. It seems like it was a long time ago when I turned 18, I started Uni, I met some amazing people there, and I watched Garden State, and now my boyfriend has gave me as a present for my birthday the last album of The Shins, and I'm gonna spend the afternoon with the amazing people I met back in 2008 and that are now my best friends. Besides from that, one of my best friends has gave me a bunch of beautiful flowers, and together with other two friends the album "The Covers Record" from Cat Power, which is also one of my favorite artists. Life is indeed full of nice surprises.
