I already wrote this post and then it deleted itself omdz. I shall do a different post then and leave that for another day. Instead of spending agees talking shit that probably won’t get read I will simply provide some songs that I’ve been listening to, do enjoy
James Blake- We Might Feel Unsound. Its not on youtube so i cannot provide vid
MYTH-Four Seasons, again not on youtube
So about a week ago a couple of friends and I headed to Brixton to take part in the Orange RockCorps Project. The aim of the project is to motivate and inspire people to volunteer and give back to the community. So all we had to do was register online, select a project and give them a call to validate our spot. The project we chose was a garden clean up in Blenheim Gardens, so we had to weed, plant and scrape and dig up the old soil. Not being a very avid gardener, this all came as a bit of a surprise, learning how to ‘weed’ and actually get the plant out of the plant pot proved a bit more of a challenge than I expected… I may have even turned over a new leaf (couldn’t resist) and become all green fingered. Yes and this feeling lasted a grand total of about 20 minutes.
But even though it was 4 hours worth of work, the time flew by; we had xfm blasting through a stereo, new people to talk to and obviously the healthy competition of whose rake technique is better. Yes and we even managed to run around in a wheelbarrow. So after all our hard work-now heres the best part-we got our free ticket to a gig at Wembley Arena on the 12th of July. But not just an average gig…Primal Scream, Jessie J and Eliza Doolittle with more to be announced. To me, thats a pretty fair deal. 4 hours of pretty fun volunteering in exchange for a completely free ticket. Scoooooore.
Give it a gooooo O x.x
After quite a hefty absence, MOtrend is being let upon the world once again. Before we get back in to the mega big posts, I thought I’d get back into the swing of the things a bit slower and just provide a few songs I’ve been listening to, rather than you know, blow your mind, with a big ‘ol post about clothes.
Just to let you know, I think I would die for Friendly Fires
Young The Giant
Cajjest song in the world
Two Door Cinema Club and Young The Giant
Little Comets, probs one of my favourite songs
Enjoy them! Olivia
OH HAI, readers of MOtrend.
Obviously we need to buck up and stop being so irregular. Apologeeeeees. Anyway, MERRY XMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
So with the start of a new year comes a fresh BBC longlist, filled with as they put it ‘music’s most exciting rising stars’. Well, i’ve sorted my way through them, youtubing and researching and what not to try and gather my own opinion of each. Some I love, some…not so much. One of my favourites being fellow Londoner James Blake, him also clearly being some other peoples favourite too as he’s tipped to come top of the list. James studied at Goldsmiths after attending Latymer (repppin da west-good to know) and he recorded songs in his bedroom before releasing his debut 12″ “Air and Lack Thereof” on Hemlock Audio in July 2009. Since then he’s managed to find himself on numerous year-end best-of lists and his self-titled album James Blake is due for release on February 7th 2011.
Yeh, so I don’t like describing the music, I always end up sounding like a twat so instead I’ll let you make up your own description in your head:
My personal favourite CMYK>
His cover of Feist’s ‘Limit To Your Love’>
The Bells Sketch>
merry listenin’ O x.x
Willow Smith is just cool. She’s ten, and already she’s cooler than me. And you, probably. When we were ten we were making mud pies and our best friend was Baby Born. Willow’s so cool that (at the age of ten) she’s sitting next to Naomi Campbell and Kylie at major fashion events. She’s been compared to Rihanna (her voice is as good, seriously) but we think she’s waaaay cooler. She’s just so down with the kids.
Willow said about her (immensely cool) new track Whip My Hair, ‘It means just be an individual. You can’t be afraid to be yourself.’
We didn’t know who we ‘were’ until we were, like, way past ten… And here Willow is with her own – totally edgy – style and personality. Man, maybe if I just whip my hair back and forth enough times I might just be as cool as Willow Smith.

MOtrend apologises for its absence, there are no excuses.
But we are back on the road again, starting with good old music post. Described as ‘the fourth leg of north-west England’s 2010 takeover’, Egyptian Hip Hop are rapidly getting bigger, you’ve probably heard, Moon Crooner or Rad Pitt. They sound like really famous old songs, when they’ve only just come out..and they’ve been created by 17 year olds. It just kinda shows how good the songs are, if they already sound so classic. Having only began their musical quest last year, it’s pretty amazing how successful they are already and how much hype there is around them. Enough ramble..
and some visual aids..
Watch out, deeese bitches gorn be big…
