Hi! I am Kahlo, a new Motel de Moka’s contributor. I would like to start my first post focusing on some old favourites songs of mine. I hope you enjoy them while optimistic feelings start to call your minds ;) I wish you a big smile . Sweet “pink” kisses little “mokas” ;)
Buddy Holly – Everyday
Buddy Holly – Peggy Sue got married
Shirelles -I met him on a Sunday
Emmylou Harris – Mister Sandman
Aretha Franklin – Think

My holidays are finally over, (well, not quite… I’ll be leaving you later this week and I’ll be returning at beginnings of January, I’ll leave you with the new residents so don’t worry, you’re in good hands) my blood relatives were relatively languid and lifeless this year, was it a bad year? Lack of color is contagious.
Feel free to join me in epileptic steps whilst listening to this random dancey tunes.
Paul Kalkbrenner – Gebrunn Gebrunn
Liars – don’t techno for an answer
Velella Velella – hunter
Jackson and his computer band – arpeggio

Well hence the fact we’ll have new people writing here at the motel next week I’ve decided to quit using the tags (laundry room, elevator beat and bedroom rockers) and I’ll probably redesign the blog next month… so expect some nice changes. As you may have noticed I have finally purchased an ezarchive account so from now on I wont be using savefile or usendit, direct links only from now on, ain’t you readers happy? I’ll see you on monday, Happy Xmas to all of you (except for that reader that kept harrasing me at my mail).
The avalanche is an outtake Sufjan recorded during the Illinois sessions and Borderline is a b-side, seven swans era as good as everything he’s done, I’m seriously considering Sufjan made a pact with Satan.
If you haven’t decided which records to buy yourself for xmas head over at feedmegoodtunes or at almostcool to read their year end lists. Hipsters might want to check the extremely boring and predictable pitchfork’s top 50 records of the year (for a moment there I thought I had the ability to predict the future) or the similar yet better top 50 records from Stylus.
Sufjan Stevens - the avalanche
Sufjan Stevens – borderline
The Dead Brothers – esclavo triste
Arizona amp and alternator – blue blue marble girl
The Mooks - hollywood nocturne

I am among that strange breed that admires their grandparents secretly. I wonder at their old pictures, I steal their old vynils and I watch their boring yet touching, golden era movies. It’s become some sort of sacred act to touch those old fashioned items.
The only thing I feel very sorry about is that none of my 4 living ancestors were very concerned or obsessed as me about music.
Jimmy Cohrsen – Kenzo (wma)
Richard Swift – the novelist
Nat King Cole – quizas, quizas, quizas
Louie Armstrong – St James infirmary
Bobby Darin – mack the knife
Tom Waits – alice
