Blogovision 2017, no.1: LCD Soundsystem - American Dream

Standing on the shore, facing east
I can't feel you
Standing on the shore, facing east
Your impermanence
You're taking water
Listing lazily out of view
I remember when we were friends
I remember calling you friend

from their album American Dream

Blogovision 2017, no.02: Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner, James McAlister - Planetarium

And I am sorry
And all that I've known to be at peace
And I am desperate
You ran off with it all
And I am restless
And all that I've known to be of love
And I am gentle
You ran off with it all
And I am desperate
And all that I dream
Where do you run, where do you run to?

Lyrics from Mercury by
from their album Planetarium

Blogovision 2017, no.03: Tori Amos - Native Invader

We may just survive
If the Militia of the Mind
Arm against those climate blind
Desert Sister
I'll be breaking in
Desert Sister
To break you out
Knowledge sown in Gaia's bones

Blogovision 2017, no.04: St. Vincent - Masseduction

Black saint, sinner lady
Playin' knockoff soul
A punk rock romantic
Slumped on the kitchen floor
Nuns in stress position
Smokin' Marlboros
Lolita is weeping
The bride is beautiful
I can't turn off what turns me on
I can't turn off what turns me on
I hold you like a weapon
Mass destruction
I don't turn off what turns me on
...Oh, what a bore to be so adored

Lyrics from Masseduction by St. Vincent, from her album Masseduction

Blogovision 2017, no.05: The Magnetic Fields - 50 Song Memoir

Now you play the synthesizer
Don't be lazy now
Make it hiss like rattlesnakes
Or moo like a cow
Crash like a hundred marbles
Smashing on the floor
You can make a thousand sounds
Never heard before
This is how to play the synthesizer

from their album 50 Song Memoir

Blogovision 2017, no.06: The National - Sleep Well Beast

I don't need you, I don't need you
Besides I barely ever see you anymore
And when I do it feels like you're only halfway there
Young mothers love me even ghosts of
Girlfriends call from Cleveland
They will meet me anytime and anywhere
The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?

Lyrics from Day I Die by The National, from their album Sleep Well Beast

Blogovision 2017, no.07: Björk - Utopia

Imagine a future and be in it
Feel this incredible nurture, soak it in
Your past is on loop, turn it off
See this possible future and be in it
Hold fort for love forever
We're just momentary vessels
We're just carrying

Lyrics from Future Forever by Björk, from her album Utopia

Blogovision 2017, no.08: Fever Ray - Plunge

Slow motion thunderstorm
Having the story unfold
In time to understand
I wanna hold her hand
Doing just what I'm told
Back to five years old
You're lost and gone gone gone
We waited far too long

Lyrics from Mama's Hand by Fever Ray, from her album Plunge

Blogovision 2017, no.09: Perfume Genius - No Shape

Don't hold back, I want to break free
God is singing through your body
And I'm carried by the sound
Every drum, every single beat
They were born from your body
And I'm carried by the sound
Oh, ooh love
They'll never break the shape we take
Oh, ooh
Baby let all them voices slip away

Lyrics from Slip Away by Perfume Genius, from his album No Shape

Blogovision 2017, no.11: Amanda Palmer and Edward Ka-Spel - I Can Spin A Rainbow

Now they’re all gone but you’ve stayed 
The door is unlatched, but you are not afraid 
There’s a nice patch of straw and a comfortable cage 
The door is unlatched, but you’re not afraid 
There’s a nice patch of straw and a comfortable cage 

How they crowned you 
Weighted and drowned you 
How they made you numb 
No bandage around you 
I’ve found and unbound you 
Now how to make you run, run, run, run, run…

from their album I Can Spin A Rainbow

Blogovision 2017, no.13: Camille - OUÏ

Lentement je suis devenue grande 
Et je viens à toi dans un roulement de hanches 
À mon arrivée un animal étrange 
Dépose un collier de perles sur mes tempes (fille à papa fille à papa) 

Lyrics from Fille À Papa by Camille, from her album OUÏ

Blogovision 2017, no.14: Ibeyi - Ash

He said, he said
He said, he said
"Do you smoke?
What's your name?
Do you know why I'm here?"
She was, she was
Sweet sixteen
Frozen with fear
Whatever happens, whatever happened
We are deathless!

Lyrics from Deathless by Ibeyi, from their album Ash

Blogovision 2017, no.15: Ane Brun - Leave Me Breathless

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life
I want to know what love is
I want you to show me
I want to feel what love is
I know you can show me

lyrics from the song I Want To Know What Love Is 
by Ane Brun, from the album Leave Me Breathless

It's obvious (Obvious)
The universe (Universe)

I've given up (Given up)
I've given up (Given up)
I've given up (Given up)

Blogovision 2017 - no.20: Σtella - Works For You

around my neck there’s a rope 
sometimes you pull it and I start to choke 
is it a test for the girl 
who knows what it takes to be in your world 

so if you want, come collect...
