Summer’s Eve Chilling: Wilfred Giroux’s American Boy edit

I bumped into this fresh take on Estelle’s American Boy by London-based duo Wilfred Giroux when I got back from work. Exactly the sort of uncomplicated summer’s eve tune I felt like listening to.

Muse’s Knights of Cydonia – Music Video by Joseph Kahn

Hello

Party-shakers and rhythmn-makers, welcome to this small corner of the internet. Music intertwines with my life in various ways. Like everyone else – this doesn’t exclusively just mean what mood I’m in when listening to a certain song. Now, (predominantly thanks to social media) the way we ‘consume’ music is just as diverse and affects the […]
