baroque-rock

Brooklyn band She Keeps Bees does bewitching, gloomy, blues tinged and baroque imbued rock music so well. Their latest single Owl, off excellent current album Eight Houses, is a delightful, dusky treat with backing vocals by the amazing Sharon Van Etten. It’s as if Lana Del Rey, Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond, and Anna Calvi met in a crossroad and jammed together. She Keeps Bees is currently touring in Europe, and they’ve released an odd but captivating video for the song.

In My Life - The Beatles

“Сегодня я расскажу вам историю о человеке, утонувшем в холодных водах океана, – после потери того, кого он любил. Эта история о человеке, который умер дважды…”

“Today I will tell you a story about a man drowned 

in the cold waters of the ocean. 

After the loss of his loved ones. 
This story is about a man who died twice”

Black Mirror by Arcade Fire from Neon Bible (2007)

I walked down to the ocean
After waking from a nightmare
No moon, no pale reflection
Black Mirror, Black Mirror

Shot by a security camera
You can’t watch your own image
And also look yourself in the eye
Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror

I know a time is coming
All words will lose their meaning
Please show me something that isn’t mine
But mine is the only kind that I relate to
Le miroir casse
The mirror casts mon reflet partour
Black Mirror, Black Mirror, Black Mirror

The black mirror knows no reflection
It knows not pride or vanity
It cares not about your dreams
It cares not for your pyramid schemes
Their names are never spoken
The curse is never broken

Un! Deux! Trois! Dis: Miroir Noir!
Black Mirror!

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Show me where them bombs will fall

Black Mirror!

Crown of Love // Arcade Fire

The only thing that you keep changin’
Is your name, my love keeps growin’
Still the same, just like a cancer,
And you won’t give me a straight answer!

If you still want me, please forgive me,
The crown of love has fallen from me.
If you still want me please forgive me
Because your hands are not upon me.
