Drowning out thoughts with music

My mindset put me in such an uneasy state yesterday I thought the weekend had already come. Obviously, it hasn’t.

Things haven’t improved for my mental state, for I’ve been feeling like everything even remotely connected to my thoughts is deliberately directed at me. Isn’t that the shortest path to becoming offended?

On a brighter side, though, here’s a video of one of the most talented, creative and challenging Brazilian musicians out there, Marina Gasolina:

She’s not a new face, as you can see from this quote from YouTube:

After Playing in several punk bands during her teenage years, Marina founded and fronted Domino signed, brazilian baile-funk band Bonde Do Role. After touring the world for two years straight, they released debut album ‘With Lasers’ which was produced by a who’s who of exciting producers such as Diplo, Chernobyl and Radioclit. Marina then left the band to focus on her solo career and broaden her horizons.

She moved to London in 2008 and has passed the time recording tracks for international acts such as Crookers, Herve, Maskinen, Severin, The Go! Team, Metronomy, Acid Kids and Architecture in Helsinki. This led to her building her own, new sound and writing songs with Berlin based Electronicat and the Brazilian one man band O Lendário Chucrobillyman. With connections like this we can expect some rather interesting remixes of Marina’s solo work.

Are you as excited as I am about this coming album?

Let us dance and forget reality.

For a moment.
