Here I am writing an iPhone App review, for S&C nonetheless – this is not normal. But I really feel like I should help spread the word on this alarm clock app, it could change your early mornings for at least 19.9 (x) days (average iPhone app engagement uses over a life cycle).
For the last 6 months, I’ve been pumping music to match my mood on Stereo Mood; happy, energetic, lost in Jamaica, gangsta. So let’s just say they’ve helped me find better music and I owe ‘em around $0.99, fair enough. Built by an Italian collective based in Rome, it’s emotional Internet radio that is quickly rising in fame as the go-to music site for sexy dinners, long showers, falling asleep and now waking up. These guys have the most sensitive ears on the Internet and they do it well.
The app is named moodO’Clock (not the best name, sorry guys) and it’s pretty damn good, trust. The idea here is you can choose the mood you’d like to wake up in; dreamy, let’s party, summer or whatever. I wake up to “epic” on Monday’s and Wednesday’s and “feel like crying” on Saturday’s, yeah what?! If you don’t have an iPhone, we can’t help wake you up in the morning, yet!
A collection of unedited b&w photographs from an unruly Canada Day jam out on the farm. I love this country.
LATER on I got a chance to see my old friend Jose (Kiz & Legin) play a show at the Smiling Buddha Bar. Made a dark, raw video of their song Million, hardcore dude.
Toronto, May 25, 2011. Maybe the Horseshoe Tavern wasn’t the best venue for this CSNY-style band who’s quiet harmonic vocals were often interrupted by the pool sharks in the front of the bar. It was a rainy night mid-week and the band drew a modest crowd of loyal fans. Their onstage presence was not helped by the dark and minimalist lighting. Despite that, their sound was unparalleled by most other bands I’ve seen recently.
However, their music does not appeal to a broad range of taste. Their quietness can be wearing to some ears. The plus-one I brought is a hip hop-loving graffiti artist who wasn’t enamoured by the whole thing, he couldn’t understand why they didn’t have drums.
For me the show felt like that feeling you get after an eleven-hour sleep right when you wake up and life seems dreamy, foggy and calm. Heather McIntosh’s melodic cello added a classical sophistication, while Lupe Nunew-Fenandez and Alasdair MacLean on nylon-string guitars serenaded the audience with a soft Spanish undertone. At the end of the night, all of the elemental qualities of a beautiful performance were there.
All I can say is Amor de Dias is destined to pick up a larger following because they are damn talented. If they come back, I hope for their sake they choose a venue that suits their intimate style.
