eucaliptus blues

Delgado, Arteche and Bergia in full action here. You can't go wrong with that especially with a song title like that.

So a couple of summers ago i had the honour of being invited for an interview and listening session at one of London's premier stores LNCC. Im preparing a new mix for them as we speak so i thought to keep you company with the live set from the store from that great night. Enjoy

You never can go wrong with this woman. As i have said before Bjorn knew better.

The best version of this already amazing song. Unfortunately it seems that this version was never recorded. Such a shame. The band is on fire and the keyboard player is killing it here.

only with you

My heart is foolish to live for yesterday. The lyrics on this one are pure magic. The video is a marvel to watch. The music is heavenly. Jump on that big blue wave.

noon flight

If your wife left you recently or it happened to be fired, or you just had a rough day, or you just need a reason to escape reality for a while, instead of paying silly money on a shrink or antidepressants just put this video on. If you still haven't been introduced to the wonderful world of Gontiti it's about time you do. Everything about these two gifted musicians is magical. From the sleeves of the their records to their parted hair and suits. There are five parts to this live recording. I spent the whole evening yesterday lost in this daydreaming of a soft breeze caressing my skin while lying under the sun around noon time.

something you said

So. This is a special moment. This blog started on an evening of May 5 years ago. It followed me through one of the happiest times of my life where i could see no shadows in my future. Some time ago i decided to put an end to it's life. This blog after all was all about summer. And the madness of it. The Mediterranean sun, summer lovers, smiles, Ibiza, you, me, our life together, our tanned bodies, slow ships cruising the Aegean to unknown islands. I feel it's time for this blog to begin again. Without knowing for how long. Just a crazy idea that went through my head yesterday evening. As crazy it can be thinking of you still. The summer is upon us. Plaidmusic will be cruising the Med again for a few months. We will be your humble captains if you will be our precious crew. We promise to treat you well. And make you dream once again. Because dreaming is for free.
