Estervalley – What Does Your Heart Keep

“I wrote the melody of this song one Saturday’s morning.
My friend felt blue and I wanted to help her, at least a little bit.
So it’s not about love actually.
Or maybe about something more than Love.”

TIL: Alex aka. Estervalley is living in the small far-eastern russian town called Komsomolsk-on-Amure (wait…where?) that is close to Japan. Google just told me it’s MINUS 25 degrees there today so I can imagine “feeling blue” is not uncommon over there. But any heart needs some warm and sweet music like this from time to time, especially if you are the “Monday – Blues” kind of person like I am. Make yourself a cup of hot chocolate, listen to his whole EP and keep your heart beating.

William Fitzsimmons – Passion Play

William Fitzsimmons – Passion Play

I had so many songs I wanted to put up.  First I wanted this then I realized that I always post melancholy music, so I considered posting a more upbeat hip-hop type song, but I haven’t heard any great new hip-hop songs lately.  Then I considered posting a song off my friend’s band’s new cd (Sing Me Insomnia), but then I realized that cd was in the top 100 on iTunes so they’re not really a band that needs press, plus they’re an almost powerpop band.  Then I considered posting a song that my friend and I recorded but that song was really pop-ish and I am not a huge fan of bloggers who post only their original material (despite the fact that my next post may be one of my originals).  So here is the great William Fitzsimmons singing his song Passion Play, incidentally, Mr. Fitzsimmons just released an amazing new cd entitled Gold In The Shadow, and I would strongly encourage all of you to go about purchasing it if you enjoy this song, or at least listen to his new cd.
