New Music

I may be a child of the 80's as far as music goes, but I do still love the thrill of hearing new artists and songs! In a world where it sometimes seems as if nothing new can really be discovered musically there are still some artists who make me want to run out and buy their cd's Two girls who Ive just found on the BBC top artists of 2008 are impressive, they are both young, 19 & 23 but still I like to think I can relate to their music even in my advancing years ;) When is it too old to listen to new music? I like to think never, but I also dont want to be one of those Mothers who look like their trying to be cool and like their kids music! I sometimes wonder how my boys will rebel against me, musically, as I dont think I really dislike any forms of music, even if I dont understand or relate to it.

These two girls are new on the Brit scene and I just love their styles! One is moody and clever with lyrics, the other has a wonderful retro feel, and people have compared her to Dusty Springfield.

See what you think!

Before looking at the clips, I take umbrage at you limiting your creativity - in terms of considering not listening to new music - by thinking that it has anything to do with age, or worrying about what "they" think.

Fuck them.


Music lovers never stop listening to new music - or at least discovering music that is new to them, even if it was written in 1989 or 1962 or 1759. I can't imagine you will ever stop listening to new music, even if you feel like you should hide away at home as a second class citizen to do it.

Goddamn it if I'm not gonna try and force you to grow old disgracefully (according to the world system) with me, woman!

Hey, they're both cool. Thanks for sharing your new findings :)

What are their names?

I especially love that second chick. Great feel.

I know, I know ;) I suffer from worrying about what the world thinks of me! and like you say, "fuck em"
I'll groove to new music when I'm 80 ;)

Silly me forgot to mention the names of the girls. The first one is Adele, and the second is Duffy.

I'm really loving that "Rockferry" song (the second song) got such a mood to it.

Yes. Buy it so I can burn it ;)

Ahh, I had some retail therapy today. I really really can't afford it, but I got paid, and so I went and bought a dress and a skirt. :)
