#MusicMonday – Her Morning Elegance

First things first…

I’d like to say that my domain and hosting have both been transfered, and my site is 100% back. There are a few kinks I’m working out, but nothing anyone but I would notice (for example, I’m still re-configuring the mobile admin portion of the site).

Now, onto the music.

I know I’ve been doing a lot of soft, smooth music recently, but I can’t help but throw out another. Its called “Her Morning Elegance” by Oren Lavie. I have to say, when I hear a song, I’ll listen to it, like it, and then forget about it. If I see its music video, however, I’ll really, really get attached to it (if the video is good, of course). This was one of those songs; I just fell in love with it. Here, take a look;

A bit about the song…

To my knowledge, I only hear 4 instruments; an electric piano, a snare drum, a xylophone, and a cello. If you know me at all, you’ll know that any song with a cello really really impresses me (unless, of course, its done poorly). The music video is particularly good; its done via stop animation; a picture is taken, the scene is moved a little bit, and another picture is taken, thus creating slides of a video. The way it syncs up with the music, and the way it all uses a mattress as a background (you’ll have to see the video to see what I mean) is just really unique.

    Yes. Absolutely.

    This is one of the best songs I’ve heard in a long time, and the video is one of the most creative as well, better even than those OK go treadmill videos. I’m not really sure why, but he reminds me of Donavon Frankenreiter.

    Also, if you haven’t heard them, you must listen to The Cat Empire. They’ve been one of my favorite bands for about 3 or 4 years and in all of that time I’ve encountered exactly one person who’s heard of them.

    p.s. It’s a vibraphone, not a xylophone. :-)

      Oh duhr… I have to change that. Thanks for catching that!
      And Donavon Frankenreiter? I just checked out his website (www.donavonf.com) and I’d have to agree… the vocals are pretty similar.

      I’ve definitely never heard of “The Cat Empire…” And don’t you hate that? Its like unintentionally being hipster; finding an obscure band, but WANTING other people to listen to them. Have you heard of Mutemath? I think I’ll feature them next wee; their new album, Armistice, just came out.

    well, in my opinion, it was okay music, but what that impressed me the most, was the video :D That was really good! It was like everything was real, just with weird stuff instead of ex. water… and when she jumped from pad to pad, and falled, it was like “wow!” impressing indeed!

      I told you, didn’t I? haha the music video really hooks you, doesn’t it?

      By the way, what kind of music do you like? I’ve noticed the stuff I’ve posted so far doesn’t seem to be your thing.
