Week 24: The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt
Top tip: if you’re trying to read a book a week, it’s not smart to pick one that has 864 pages. That said, this is a masterpiece. Utterly devastating and simultaneously soul-enriching. Gripping. Wonderful. BUT VERY LONG.

Luke Leighfield | Begin Again

British lad Luke Leighfield is the second former SoundCloud employee who went on to be a full-time musician (the first was Ian Hooper of Mighty Oaks). Luke raised money on Kickstarter to go produce his second album with his dream producer Jim Wirt.

This is the first song he’s sharing from that album. If you’re into Ben Folds or Something Corporate, Luke would be their love child.  

Belgian lad David is the reason I first ended up at SoundCloud and he is LOVELY. Thx, David!

VIDEO: ‘Holes’ (live)

On the last night of my EP recording session at about 5am, I spontaneously decided to record a song I had written called ‘Holes’. We set up a camera on the edge of the piano, and this is the video of the actual live, one-take recording that made it onto the ‘Black Mud EP’, available now on iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/black-mud-ep/id859054229

Beautiful.

When you can let go of the idols of relationships, wealth, intellect, success, beauty, and career: you can actually enjoy them for what they are. You don’t expect salvation or redemption from them. You don’t crush them with expectations or demand them to serve your every whim. You instead see them as gifts, as privileges, as an honor to respect and to cherish. Treat the earthly as divine and you will lose both; treat the divine as your treasure and the earth will be just as beautiful. - J.S. (via jspark3000)
