I know we’re almost finished with January, but that shouldn’t stop you from popping over to My Owl barn and creating your owl Owl Lover calendar for 2014! You can choose from 50 (that’s right, FIFTY!) images by some amazing artists. Just choose what image you want for each month, then download and print. Just warning you, I spent about twenty minutes working out what images I was going to do for each month. Though of course, you may be more decisive than me! If not, you can also just download a pre-made calendar. Have fun!
Astrid Swan returns with her 5th album Astrid4 via Soliti. Over a two-year period, a minimalist, dogmatic album of piano, horns and drums became full and blooming. Check out lead single Four Months to Kill, the perfect soundtrack to the wintery evenings.
"I don’t care for the forest. Never been a nature creature really. I don’t go berry picking in August, I’m fine in the city. But a natural order began to outline itself in the concrete. There are black bears behind my closed eyes, wild deer hoofs in the night.For an unknown reason these creatures began to populate my mind even when I was awake. Suddenly Navaho indians interested me because of their ancient knowledge of the rhythm of life. And so, in the course of taking time and making Astrid4, life and death appeared to me in the flesh."
