#20   versions   zola jesus

Nobody invited her to an Mtv Unplugged but she did it anyway. Zola Jesus paired up with a string quartet and released this stripped down, heartbreaking collection of old songs revisited, which testifies her talent as a singer and reminds us of how soulful her music is.

I react to Kids react

I’ve never spent that much time on YouTube and I’ve always been immune to the charm of Youtube Stars. The only exception to the rule seem to be The Fine Brothers:I’ve discovered them pretty late but now I’m totally obsessed with their YouTube Channel, especially with a series of videos called Kids react, in which kids from 3 to 13 years old are asked to give thoughts and opinions on stuff.

The blog has a mailing list!

I really felt like a Facebook page and a Twitter account weren’t enough.

In case I release a secret studio album in the middle of the night I want you to be the first ones to know

The mailing list will notify you whenever a new blog post is out and will also feature all those b-sides stories and information that didn’t make it into a post, like the top 10 reasons why I love eradicating nose hair!

All you need to do is insert your email in the form on the right and click on the subscribe button.

Legal bit:

the email address you give me will be used ONLY to send out A More Quiet Place‘s newsletter.

Unless they fire me. In that case I might start selling Viagra.

If we’re friends, you’re automatically part of the mailing list and the only way to unsubscribe is to kill me.

Best records of 2013 – thirtieth to twenty-sixth

#30   tales of a grasswidow   cocorosie

I confess: I inserted this record in the list just because having a “Best 29 records of 2013” list sounded awful. Don’t get me wrong, Tales of a Grasswidow is still better than many other releases I heard in the past months, but Cocorosie’s music lost something over the years and having Antony singing in the record won’t make up for it this time.
