Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Septembre

It’s the first of the month, so cash your checks and get up.” – Bone Thugs

Aside from the usual check cashing  and up getting, the first of the month is always exciting for us because it means a new version of Steph Lund’s Le Miel du Mois premiere’s on E.M.P.T. Since it’s inception back in May Le Miel du Mois has been downloaded over 800 times, and that’s not counting the nearly month long shut down we had to overcome. This popular mixtape displays a broad yet refined taste in countless genres, styles and feelings – quite fresh. This is one that needs to be listen to the whole way though as all the songs come together to paint a coherent experience. So without further ado, here are some words from the mastermind herself, enjoy.

Septembre. septembre. les feuilles. le vent. The beautiful feeling of fall across your neck, buzzing through your hair, down to your legs making you run faster and faster until you fall oh into fall into fall into fall. This mix is a little bit softer than the summer mixes. The second to last track is Fever Ray. I was first introduced to Fever Ray a few months ago, when I received it in the mail from The Album Club. If you haven’t heard about the UK’s TAC yet, I suggest you check it out here: Fever Ray is the debut solo album from The Knife’s frontwoman, Karin Dreijer Andersson. I love Karin’s voice, ever since I fell in love with Röyksopp’s “What Else Is There” released in ’05. She is eccentric and eclectic and sometimes her vocals and lyrics scare me, but nevertheless keep me wanting more:

Fever Ray’s If I Had A Heart lyrics:

This will never end
cause i want more
more, give me more, give me more”
