Grimes - Visions (2012)

Hi there! This is my first post on FC so I should probably introduce myself. I'm Flo - I like daft things and a super-eclectic mix of tunes. So here's my opener:

After a summer of 60s renaissance and what I like to call 'sunday' music (maudlin folk etc.) I very much welcomed the arrival of Montreal's Grimes' third album 'Visions' into my shuffle playlist. An album of eclectic songs that you just want to play them again as soon as you've heard them: the album is full of songs that make you want to dance and its pretty radio friendly. Here are my two favourites:

Michael Hurley - Tea Song (1965)

last friday people were fighting on the street and my housemates and i were watching from a balcony in my room. small brawls are quite common in our area, but this time dozens of young revolutionaries were pelting rocks, bottles and the occasional fence at a group of muslim brotherhood adherents and vice versa. both groups kept charging at each other, one to hold on to their occupation of tahrir square, the other to break through and take over.

over a hundred people were injured and eventually the revolutionaries won the square. since the wise choice was not to go out, we played risk and listened to michael hurley.
