Goldfrapp, The Singles Album Review

Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory have been providing us with perfectly pitched high quality pop for nearly thirteen years now. Their output has always been extraordinarily reliable and has evolved through time to seemingly be just that much further forward than the mainstream, making them both interesting, pioneering and influential. They may not be as well known as the household names they have laid a musical path for but they have certainly been responsible in aiding the breakthrough of many of today's more high profile acts.

Hope your day is a good one X  #lensculture #mextures #tree_magic #nature #monday
As I was gazing longingly into the pan relishing my Saturday morning listening to the radio and making breakfast. I realised some of my fondest memories have involved eating and cooking eggs. As well sharing breakfast with friends, family & partner, camping & nursing hangovers. There's being on tour with the band and holidays abroad. I'll never forget arriving after a very long drive at a roadside cafe in Greece. The old man who owned the place, served us eggs and bread on the veranda as we watched the sun come up over the mountain....A delicious & unforgettable eggy moment X #nature #egg #heaven

Whirl up, sea whirl your pointed pines, Splash your great pines on our rocks, Hurl your green over us, Cover us with your pools of fir.
Oread by H.D.
Oreads in Greek mythology, were nymphs of the mountain conifers. They were believed to guide weary travellers safely through the steep & rocky terrain of the mountain forests. They also hung out in grottos, rivers & streams that cascaded into the sea! X

And so she comes to dream herself the tree, The wind possessing her, weaving her young veins, Holding her to the sky and it's quick blue, Drowning the fever of her hands in sunlight. She has no memory, nor fear, nor hope beyond the grass and shadows at her feet.
