With Just One Glance- Nicolas Jaar (feat. Scout Larue)
I have been quite silent recently, this summer I had an internship which took all of my creative attention, and I sort of stopped consuming music for a while, when I wasn’t listening to things needed for my work I retreated to pop music like Lady GaGa and Katy Perry… I was rejecting everything I knew, and cleared my mind for a while, but now the real work begins, I get very claustrophobic when I am not listening to new music, something that I may not be used to or some new sound. So as a restart to my dead blog, I give you Nicolas Jaar with Bruce Willis’ 20 year old daughter Scout. The age is important to note here because her voice sounds like someone much older. The background is full of jazz and African references, I don’t know anything about Nicolas Jaar, but what I gathered from this song is that he likes the art of the remix. I really enjoy Scout’s vocals on this track and I hope this is not a one time thing for her, she should find a band or just start one with Jaar (my opinion).
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
