Nick Murphy is/was Chet Faker and he’s back

In September, Chet Faker announced that his next record would be released under his birth name Nick Murphy. He said the following: “It’s been half a decade since I started releasing music as Chet Faker and all of you have been the driving force behind the music since. There’s an evolution happening and I wanted to let you know where its going. The next record will be under my own name, Nick Murphy. Chet Faker will always be a part of the music. This is next”.

Music, art, architecture, nature, fashion and Grimes

Last year, Grimes (one of my fave female solo artists) released her 4th studio album, Art Angels.

The Canadian lass recorded the album in its entirety at her home in L.A after realizing it was too much pressure renting and paying out a studio per hour.

Claire Boucher AKA Grimes

I’m a huge fan of this album in particular and I’ve watched every video of hers, but, yesterday Claire Boucher (AKA Grimes) released something VERY special.

Got a little over 38 minutes to spare? If not, make time, it’s worth it!

Nature, art, architecture and freedom has never looked so fine.

Waste a Moment is the first single off their upcoming album WALLS (out on the 14 October).

Random fact that I had no idea about until TODAY: Caleb, Nathan and Jared are brothers, Matthew is their cousin.

As always, the boys nailed it to a T. Both the song and video are ace.

I’m talking about my dad!!!

Happy birthday to my soul mate.

Apart from being an exceptionally incredible dad, he’s free spirited, wacky, funny, quirky, loving, caring and I admire him a hell of a lot!

Thank you for never giving up on your dreams, for following your passions and for believing in yourself, because thanks to that, I can do and be exactly who I want to be every single day!

I LOVE YOU!!!

Also on this day, buy back in 1966 (50 years ago), Pet Sounds was released.
