Olive Loves: Kimbra

Let’s shake a tail feather my dears, step out on the dance floor and show them what we’ve got. There’s nothing like a pure pop song, a melody you can’t get out of your head and a rhythm that makes you take to your feet. I have claimed before to love to dance and no one right now makes me dance more than Kimbra.

A young gal from the far away climes of New Zealand, Kimbra has been making music since she was a wee lass. She won a contest in her home country when she was still a teen and from there on in ,she’s been rising up, up, up.

Put your ear to the ground and you’re be sure to hear, somewhere near and somewhere soon, her sweet high voice matched with simply irresistible melodies – fun, catchy tunes that are cozily familiar yet still beautifully all her own.

Kimbra, in addition to her song and dance chops, also sports an utterly invincible stage style, a cross between Snow White and a Twenties silent screen star, all black hair and bangs and wide, giant dolls eyes and pretty pouty lips.

Miss Kimbra is that rare bird, lovely and talented and on the rise – so let’s all look up… and watch her fly.

Olive Goil: Coco Morier

Oh how I love a great pop song!

Take a listen, my dears, to Coco Morier, who is just simply the best at writing utterly infectious ditties for the big stars to sing out loud. Miss Morier is a songwriter and musician whose amazing tracks are exactly the tunes you need for shaking a tail feather on the dance floor.

She is also an avid adventurer like moí, a world explorer and traveler, raised in the wilds of New Mexico and spending time in Berlin before settling in the hills of Los Angeles.

She’s written hits for the likes of Britney Spears and played guitar with Charlotte Gainsbourg, but her new album is all her own and the result is the most gleefully fun collection of tracks you’ve heard in far too long!

So lovelies, let’s dance!

Olive Goil: La Sera

Is there nothing that fiery redheaded wunderkund Katy Goodman can’t do?

She’s been in too many bands to count, is apparently some sort of computer genius and is about to tour with her new act La Sera, heading out into the big sky state of Texas for that little music festival called SXSW they have down that way…

I do hate to admit it – but at first I was just a teeny bit jealous of Miss Goodman’s high falutin’ style, but then I took a closer look and realized that my very own wardrobe just might be inspiring her sweet but adventurous look. What do you think?

Take a listen lovelies! – Purty lady, purty music!

La Sera’s album “Sees The Light” releases on March 27, 2012 – Only 5 more days!

Olive Goil: First Aid Kit

First Aid Kit

 

My dears, what’s life without music?

I just adore these loveable little gals from the far off lands of Sweden who call themselves First Aid Kit. They sing like the sweetest of canaries, crooning creaky tiptoe ballads about ghosts and old lace and all sorts of other spooky stuff.

They are sisters, too, hand-in-hand modern-day troubadours who travel the world and have many, many magical adventures!

See them exploring the dreamy Mojave dressed like witchy-gypsy cowgirls in this film for their newest record. Yee-haw!!
