If you don’t have chills when this songs open, then you aren’t doing it right.

I am excited to get to write about a Bipolar Sunshine song again. This remix released by Marce Reazon, progresses perfectly adding in more playful synthesizers and base complimenting the light vocals of Bipolar Sunshine vocalist, Adio Marchant.

Highly recommend this song for your dancing needs for the weekend. Truthfully, I just want to wrap myself in his lyrics whenever possible.

“My fault, my pain
My soul, you take
But I keep on, you are my everything!
With my joy, my heart.”

Bipolar Sunshine – Love More Worry Less

Bipolar

There are moments punctuated throughout your life where you either know it while it is happening or you look back and realize that was one of those pivotal moments when your poles are changing. Your magnetic center is shifting, whether fast or slow you can feel your life pulling in directions out of your control.  Needless to say, I am in one of those places at the moment.

I was also given the unique and surreal and human moment where I could say bye to someone very dear to me. Grief in itself is very strange and unique for everyone, like your personal fingerprint on the moment. How you handle it and how you move on is the only thing you can control during it. You feel like a roller coaster and people handle you carefully as though you are holding a hazardous material and one wrong breath will cause you to drop it, or loose it more likely. But this is happening and this is life.

The other thing about grief is I always seem to have realizations. “This is what I should be doing…” or “I know I really want this in my life now….” and so on. To survivors, you feel like you are given a new lease on life as you make it through it. You see the things you want to change, you hear the regrets of the person in the hospital, you see how people react and what you can do to change that fate of yours.

That is why I liked this song. Aside from my deep love for English accents and this style of music which has been predominantly coming from the UK (reminds me of King Krule or a softer Jake Bugg), this song made me feel good on a bad day. It also was a good message during this time.

“Staring at you in your clear view   But only you can make the change
It’s up to you to break the chain
You got to fear

I know you’re running, running, running
Tried to part
But doubt is what is tearing your world apart
You got to fear
You got to fear

Call me if you need someone
To lean on, lean on.”

I am loosing someone I have loved my whole life and have been caring for and her for me for the past year. But with this on a playlist, I can say I feel a bit better and appreciate the power of music and a good playlist to get through even the darkest of days and brightest of memories.

Bipolar Sunshine, or Adio Marchant,  is a british artist from Manchester. This is a single released from the former vocalist of Kid British. His recent EP, Drowning Butterflies, is set to release before the end of 2013.

EMPT Presents: Le Miel du Mois Juin 2013

It’s what y’all been waitin’ for ain’t it,
What people paid paper for damnit!” – Kanye West (Barry Bonds)
 
We know you all have a craving, we sensed it because so do we. This months Juin installment of LMDM couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.  Summer is finally here, our senses are on overload and what could be more satisfying to alleviate your crave then this.

If you’re an addict of LMDM, then you already know that each installment is going to be flawless in some way.  I can’t say one is better then the next because each one really does satisfy a distinct craving,energy, and each one is to be remembered for how it satisfied us.  Steph is the ultimate psychic to all of our musical taste buds.

Buddhists would say not to hold on to your cravings, let them go, and sometimes I could agree but I think healthy cravings are a part of life as long as your aren’t destroying your body and your spirit.  If whatever you are doing makes you happy then I say why not, because no mind is alike.

“My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.”  -Ayn Rand
The way each track compliments the next is unbelievable, it pretty much helps you to visual each day in its progression as it should be for the rest of the Summer; wake up, call in sick to work, grab a beer out of the fridge for breakfast, go to the beach, get a little tipsy, take a little cat nap before the night begins, maybe a little sex if your lucky, wash away the day, start all over, dance like you don’t give a F*&k, let the night take over your mind and body…Repeat tomorrow!
We can’t thank Steph enough for making sure we all didn’t go through withdrawal, it was getting close but it looks like we made it! Crave no more you sexy animals, press play and enjoy this sweet sweet Summer magic!

Le Miel du Mois at work? That’s much better than work at work! Download
