I am loving

This song Great white bear by Dear Reader, and the awesome music video that goes with it:

You should check out their website too, it is beautiful.

Apparently this album was released in February. But I only heard of this band this weekend. For this I blame:

  • me, because I am a lowly cowpat and know nothing about new South African music
  • you South Africans who are not cowpats, for not telling me
  • me, because I am a nerd, which means I never know about new music and only hear it a year later.
Never fall in love with a spider, guys; “til death do us part” may come more quickly than you think.

    LOL. I know Dear Reader is the old Harris Twees- but I never liked them much to be honest so i didn't even give Dear Reader a proper listen. Since you said they were cool; I'll give them a listen soon… I hope. Great White Bear according to my friend is a GRAND song so I'm starting right where you put us. PS- But apparently spiders are GREAT lovers LOL. XD

    PS champs if you go to their website you can listen to the whole album for free! And see if you life it. I thought the video to "Dearheart" is also pretty cool and funny.Prixie: no way, and you are even from Gauteng. Maybe they are just not on the radar?

    Tamara: I know! It is eery or spooky or something a little unsettling. But I think it is really good and haunting. I like.For when I am feeling sad or urgent or stuff like that.

    Yes, yes – it's Harris Tweed. And I would have told you about it, but the lead singer has got such an annoying voice, I thought I'd spare you.

    6000: apparently the real Scottish Harris Tweed "asked" them to change their name. Haha. I love her voice.

    Harris Tweed changed their name? I was wondering why I hadn't seen anything from them in a while!

    I interviewed them once. They were nice. And they had permission from the Scottish Harris Tweed, so I wonder what changed? Mebbe they did something naughty?
