Sometimes everything gets on top of you – it’s something this blog writes about a lot – and you just want to create a fort out of your bedding and cover yourself with it.
I still haven’t discovered a sure-fire way of overcoming these feelings, and so normally have a bath and turn on some quiet, sombre acoustic music. Sometimes it takes a long walk and some 120bmp bouncy house. Sometimes all I need is Franky Ocean.
Bathe In The Streetlights by Bristol based Rosie Rowland (woof) is very apt for more melancholy times. Her voice wraps itself about you like a Laura Marling – Jose Gonzales sonic-lovechild. Free d/l, yo!
