I’ve made an interesting discovery a few years ago and that discovery was Anja Plaschg. She was born in Styria, Austria in 1990. Anja made an experimental music project called Soap&Skin. Her sound is quite extraordinary. Her voice is very dark and low with a smooth milky texture if I could put it into words. She composes her own songs and her instrumentals complement her voice perfectly. She mainly uses dark piano tones and raw electrics in her compositions. This is her song “Wonder” from her new album “Narrow.” Check her out.

Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby you just make me mad
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountain top
Thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything
Ive had but couldnt keep
Ive had but couldnt keep

If I could make the world as pure and strange as what I see
Id put you in the mirror I put in front of me
Id put in front of me

Skip a life completely, stuff it in a cup
She said money is like us in time
It lies but cant stand up
Down for you is up

It was good what we did yesterday
And Id do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves that youre my best friend
But its truly, truly a sin
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

I swear, I will be good to you. I swear, I’ll be good to you. I swaer, I will be . . I swear, I will be. . I swear, I will be. . I will be. .“

Creep

Creep

there is no sounds of god to be found 
my knees where the heart and heat scorching inside of that needs i’m a creep
i plead for misdeed
the box smells the greatest from afar
could i only have a sense
i would feel that wings are shining under her shell
and i take the way to the far strawberry bush
and then
i am dropping into your blossoms
rubbed into a swarm
it’s late
it’s late
i am going forward
going backward
going that constantly
no shiver harms him
no colour blinds him
and nothing hurts
