^ Simply gorgeous. This is a cover of Peter Gabriel's song, from his 1986 album So.

^ "Mercy Street" is one of four songs I hadn't heard from this album. (I've got his Hit collection, which contains forty songs.) Aaaand as much as I love Peter Gabriel's music, it's only fitting I'll eventually start collecting individual albums, 'cause I'm a freak like that. When I finally did so with Depeche Mode's albums (I started off with their newest at the time, 2001's Exciter, and singles collections), I was rewarded with amazing music that I'd never hear on radio.

^ Another new song by Fever Ray. Very calming and odd; the noises throughout are apparently of mother and baby seals.

You know.... I'm not interested in seeing Red Riding Hood next year, but the SONG in the trailer - holy fuck, that's totally Fever Ray. The song gave me chills.

Karin Dreijer Andersson, you are a goddess.

Fever Ray is a new music addiction of mine. She's Karin Dreijer Andersson, one half of The Knife (formed with her brother, Olof Dreijer), which happens to be one of my favorite bands. I just discovered her solo work as Fever Ray and am completely enthralled. While very similar to The Knife, Fever Ray's music has a more organic quality, and is far more personal.

I LOVE this woman's voice, and the music gives me chills of inspiration. I'm very taken with the video, its imagery and mood.

Ramona Falls is an indie rock project based in Portland. My Motion Broadcast Graphics teacher shared this in class on Tuesday and I was thoroughly impressed. The video was made using After Effects, which we are learning how to use (currently like learning Maya all over again, but we're slowly getting the hang of it).

FANTASTIC video, and a damn catchy song. I wonder what animal head I'd have if my human head were torn off. Hummingbird, most likely.
