Into The Wild

I went for a jog today. Well, I say jog, but realistically it was a more of a hungover walk and coughing session (note to self: maybe smoke less?). I ended up in a field at some point and stumbled across a derelict skeleton of a barn or something similar nearby to a grimy, brick construct that looked like it could easily have been some sort of drug hovel, and then saw a somebody leave wearing what looked like a balaclava, and legged it. Anyway, I took some incredibly generic photos.

A Cover: 'Poke'

A beautiful song by a beautiful band. I hope one day I'll be able to do it justice, but right now I just don't posses the exquisitely poignant tones of Scott Hutchison. And I'm not Scottish. Regrettably.

A Cover: 'My Backwards Walk'

I can't be arsed to write any more Daily Shuffles right now because I have too many real things to write at the moment. In the meantime, here's a rough-and-ready cover of Frightened Rabbit's My Backwards Walk:

An Original Song: 'Sea'

I should start writing The Daily Shuffle again so that nobody can read it, but in the meantime here's a song I've just made.

The Daily Shuffle #10: Avril Lavigne

My World
by Avril Lavigne, from the Canadian pop-rock goddess' 2002 album Let Go.

Who didn't have a crush on Avril Lavigne?

Built around an almost sickeningly upbeat guitar chord sequence, My World is a sanguine confession (I never spend much less than an hour / washing my hair in the shower) of all the things that make Avril, Avril. If this song was a drink it would be a mug of warm Canadian snow drizzled in maple syrup.

Who cares?
Whilst I have perhaps somewhat deluded images of Lavigne as a cool-kid skater-girl punk rocker with flowers in her hair, this song is poppy to the extreme and will probably appeal to anyone into early noughties pop (rock?).
