I feel Num (too much is not enough)

Thanks to happenin’ friend Clea, I’ve been listening to this free track from Edinburgh artist Num on repeat.

His website has a full EP available for free download, and this song is sunshine and lo-fi harmonies and even some banjo, but don’t hold that against it. I’ve learned that when Clea gives tips, it’s best to listen.

Noise – Num

Between this and the oddly infectious synth + children’s choir goodness of the “Justice” track (that I will play if I am ever DJing at a European dance club, and those of you who have spent time in one will see exactly what I am talking about) over at Gorilla vs. Bear, my ears are happy at the moment. Maybe a little embarrassed for liking this, but happy.

  • Don’t move
    Don’t talk out of time
    Don’t think
    Don’t worry
    Everything’s just fine
    Just fine

  • I like it.
    Kind of sounds like
    The Monkees meet The Magnetic Fields

  • I didn’t get that headline until I was sitting here, wondering how the heck Bono’s voice got stuck in my head. “I know I haven’t heard that song in a while…how the..? A-ha….”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
