Pelle Carlberg - "Go to hell, Miss Rydell"

07 Jun 2006
Pelle Carlberg - Everything. Now

Pelle Carlberg - Everything. Now Along with The National, Swedish singer/songwriter Pelle Carlberg is the second of my favourite finds this year.

The bitter tale of responding to a bad review, “Go to hell, Miss Rydell” makes great listening for those with a Belle and Sebastian or Kings of Convenience bent. The album “Everything. Now!” is just superb – while the music may sound light, the lyrics are far from lightweight. There’s some real sadness/venom/longing in there. Powerful stuff.

Jenny LewisTo kick off the inaugural ‘Found Sounds’ podcast, how about some Jenny Lewis? Known for her work in Rilo Kiley and The Postal Service, Jenny teams up the Watson Twins for her solo debut (does it still count as a solo album? hmmm) for a mellow country flavoured affair. Dreamy!

    Inktober Day 21, another bird (sorry @hicksmade)! This is the Snipe that I watched from the hide at Rusty Common on Friday. Lovely birds with beaks that defy the body they’re attached to. #inktober #inktober2018 #leighandjondoinktober #snipe

    Inktober day 17 . @hicksmade’s pen led me onto squid and their ink shooting abilities. I also found out that a part of the squids anatomy is called a ‘pen’. #inktober #inktober2018 #ink #leighandjondoinktober
