Emily Jones – Autumn Eye (Owltextures)

Emily Jones – Autumn Eye (Owltextures)

By Eliza Muddle Out of time in a fuzzy land both familiar and strange, gentle melodies enchant like Laudanum, cutting me free from these worldly chains.  This is musick (with a ‘k’) of the earth, her roots sprawling under spiced soil, reaching deep into the nourishing moisture of creation and invisibly, through thick air, absorbed […]

Three million twats can be wrong | Lily Allen’s ‘Air Balloon’
