rainy days. sundays going into mondays. and all i really wanna do is crawl back into bed and listen to my headphones stopping for comfortable silences occasionally just in time to hear those raindrops so easily lull me off to sleep. for right now, this is all i need.

mazzy star truly is a special favorite.
i distinctly remember the first time i heard “fade into you”. it was the summer of turning 12 years old, my parents had just finalized their divorce and it was so hard to feel anything but… numb. there was this rush of pink, purple and red from a sunset, the peacefulness of lying down in an amazing soft ivory leather recliner, warm cool breezes coming slowly from outside, the radio was lightly on in the background and through the speakers a steady flow of circling guitars surrounded the quietness of hope sandoval’s dreamy voice creating pure magic. comfortably content, i closed my eyes and was completely hypnotized. every part of me fell in love with the music, holding onto the sound, the visions, the fantasy took me away from my actual existence. ive been lost in this trance ever since.

theres a world
outside my doorstep
flames over everyone’s heart
dont you see them shining
i want to hear them
beating for me

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    This is excellent. Thanks for putting this up. I almost went to the show at Union Chapel in London but couldn’t quite get there. Mazzy! Where are you now that we need you?
