Part 1 of… I don’t know how many posts this is going to take me.

It’s been a while since I last wrote… A few days, weeks, months… I’ve been out of it.

My emotions, feelings, thoughts, ideas, took a hold on me.

I have no idea how many people read this, what country you are in, where you are, what you’re doing, what you’re feeling at this very moment, but what I do know, is what I’m feeling at this very moment and I’d like to share a piece of me with you today.

This year has been intense. I’d sum it up as a huge, massive, wake up call. That’s how I feel and perceive the energy at this very moment. Today, Friday 30th December at 12:12pm whilst I’m sat on my brown sofa at my place whilst listening to The Verve.

I’ve got this weird feeling. Goosebumps, I’m sweating but my hands are freezing cold and my body is telling me something… I’m breathing in and out heavily… I’ve got so much to write and stuff I want to share and express, I don’t even know where (I got interrupted exactly here with a phone call I had to answer) to begin.

I remember once telling a friend, a dear friend, who I don’t speak to much anymore, a boy, a friend, that well, we parted ways due to life, but I remember telling him I wanted to write a book, but hadn’t started writing because I didn’t know where to begin… which he answered “just write, there’s no specific place, or way to begin something, just do it” – so I’ll take his advice to start now… Wow… I’m laughing and crying at this very moment (Sonnet is playing in the background)…

Breathe in… Breathe out.

I can’t remember much of this year, I’ve stored a lot of memories, emotions and feelings in different boxes in my head, but I want to begin with the following…

On April 24th 2016 I went to a festival here in Mexico City called Vive Latino. I was working so I didn’t see many bands play, I saw a song or two of a few artists, but I did get the chance to see a band play from beginning to end… That band was The Prodigy.

– I had to take a deep breath after writing that last paragraph –

So, I saw The Prodigy for the first time, live, on Sunday 24th April 2016.

I would say that every single day my life changes, I learn something, feel something new, experiment, and so on… but that Sunday will remain within me FOREVER.

I don’t even know what to write regarding what I saw and felt that day, but what I can say, is that my life changed drastically whilst experiencing and witnessing The Prodigy perform that Sunday…

I was totally sober… I had half a beer since I arrived at the festival (1:oopm) until the time I saw The Prodigy.

What I’m trying to say is… that what I felt and saw was completely real, Nicole experienced the whole situation being Nicole.

Wow.

After that… I couldn’t sleep properly.

I thought that writing all this out would be a lot easier than what it’s actually turning out to be…

I’m going to take a break and I’ll be back in a little while.

The Radio Dept. are back

Swedish band The Radio Dept. are back.

Running Out Of Love is the bands 4th studio album and it talks a bit about life in Sweden and how this year things are moving in the incorrect direction; politically, intellectually and morally. The problems and situations the boys sing about aren’t necessarily just “apt” for Sweden but for countries all around the world.

The album was released on the 21st October and has 10 absolutely stunning songs on it.

Have a listen to We Got Game, one of the singles the band released off the new album a few weeks ago.

Nicolas Jaar is back with Sirens

Since I discovered Nicolas Jaar and all of his projects, I felt something unexplainable. From A Time For Us and Avalanche (alongside Sasha Spielberg) to his Darkside project.

On the 14th October, Chilean artist Jaar will release his LP, Sirens. (It’s already available digitally).

Track list:

1) Killing Time

2) The Governor

3) Leaves

4) No

5) Three Sides of Nazareth

6) History Lesson

Caleb from Kings of Leon is a lot more than just a pretty and talented boy

Frontman and guitar player of Kings of LeonCaleb – is a very attractive and talented man, but, in their latest video Walls you can see way beyond all of that.

At the beginning of the video, you can see Caleb from a far sat on a chair playing his guitar, as the song advances, so does the camera… I don’t want to spoil it for you… So, please have a look at the video and watch it until the very end.

I personally loved the song, and the video is perfect for it. Very relaxing yet extremely deep.

Warning: I got goosebumps…

I’m Sure and Certain that Jimmy Eat World have won me over, again!

American rock band Jimmy Eat World formed in Arizona in 1993 and some of their anthems became classics.

Remember their song The Middle? Well, I love it… and so does Taylor Swift!

On October 21st, they will release their 9th studio album called Integrity Blues.

The album was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnson (has previously worked with Nine Inch Nails and M83).

The album has 11 tracks on it and so far two have been released; Get Right and Sure and Certain.

Have a look at the lyric video for Sure and Certain, here!

Nuevo video de fLIP Tamez

He tenido la oportunidad de conocer a fLIP Tamez en dos ocasiones; una, cuando entreviste a Jumbo, y otra cuando entreviste a fLIP solo.

fLIP y yo – no es la mejor foto, but at least we captured the moment!

fLIP tiene una voz super unique… La palabra perfecta seria husky.

Tamez, empezó su carrera de solista hace poco mas de 6 años. Desde entonces tiene dos álbumes Domingo Gris (2009) y Enemigo Común (2012) y el año pasado saco una especie de trilogia llamado Un Tercio.

Hace algunos días lanzó el video de Extrañar (parte de Un Tercio) – eso si, no se cual – y está excelente!

Apoyo muchísimo al talento nacional que tenemos, y mas a un ser tan talentoso como fLIP.

Vean el video, aqui!

Take the time to Waste a Moment with the Kings of Leon

A few hours ago, the very talented (and fit) 4 piece rock band Kings of Leon released their latest tune Waste a Moment.

Cover art for Waste a Moment

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.

Have a listen and look at Waste a Moment, here!

Today, back in 2006…

I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since one of my fave solo artists brought out his second studio album.

justin justintimberlake album music pop artist

I’m talking about Justin Timberlake and his album FutureSex/LoveSounds.

I discovered JT when N*Sync became well known – (OVER 16 YEARS AGO) in the 90’s! I know he was part of the Disney crew alongside Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and many others, but I had no idea of his existence back then.

One of my favourite albums (top 30) is Justin’s first studio album Justified.

Anyways, FutureSex/LoveSounds came out today, 10 years ago.

Here’s my top track off the album.

Losing My Way.
