Listening to : : Fazerdaze 'Morningside'

"Morningside is an elegant introduction into the soft dulcet tones of summer joy, Amelia’s euphonious vocals will have you swooning over every lyric..."

At 24 years old the Wellington born Amelia Murray is far more mature than the comma-number next to her name suggests. Based in Morningside, Auckland (surprise, surprise), Murray floats through indie guitar pop on the slightest of breath. Boasting her signature dreamy style paired with a more developed sense of wholeness, Murray seems to be at one with her own concepts of self and love and being, let loose in an album, seemingly built upon the foundations of 2am bedrooms sessions. Heaving with trepidation and an underlying hope, this is so much more than a little pop number, this is a refined bedroom project buried in complexity, that would've been a dream summer release, if the summer actually came at all.

If you haven't heard Fazerdaze either at Laneway Festival or through her debut EP, Morningside is an elegant introduction into the soft dulcet tones of summer joy, Amelia’s euphonious vocals will have you swooning over every lyric and delicate guitar string and hi-hat. As you float high above an Auckland summer with “Take It Slow” and “Shoulders” Amelia brings it home on upbeat winners like “Lucky Girl” and “Last to Sleep”, while bringing you closer and addressing her vulnerabilities on “Half-Figured” and “Bedroom Talks”, the latter somehow dripping in romanticism that you can't quite put into words.

The album is true to Fazerdaze style, the soft, bubbly, yet limited palette with which she works brings out the subtleties of her intimacy, the buoyant melodies keeping you afloat through a joyful homage to millennial vulnerability stripped down to the core, both infectious and graceful. This is the kind of album to have on repeat whenever the sun brings itself out, I just wish it was released in December, that would've been a vibe and a half.

Listen to the album on Apple Music or Spotify.

    Dalio pointed out that the gap between rich and poor has reached the highest level since the end of the 1930s, and now the wealthiest 1% of the population has more than the wealth of the bottom 90% of the population. So who is responsible for this dilemma? Dalio thinks that it should not be “evil rich” or “lazy poor”, but should be the capitalist system itself. Dalio pointed out.

    The highest number of actively quarantined people, 628, was connected to Cal State Los Angeles, where a single measles patient created hundreds of possible exposures by visiting a campus library, officials said. That number includes at least 106 staff members, according to the university.

    They’re still talented and skilled. They’re generally smart. The unity has become uneven. That ruthless thing, however, has never been more elusive than this season – and it has carried over into the first five games of these playoffs.

    Federal health officials say the number of confirmed measles patients in the United States — 626 in 22 states — is on pace to surpass 2014’s record 667 cases. One in 1,000 children who contract the disease will die, according to the CDC.

    “When we get a nice lead, we just tend to relax a little bit,” Kevin Durant said after Game 5, which the Warriors never led by more than four. “I’ve said it before, teams are looking for something just to get them back into the game.”

    They have to be desperate to reestablish the identity they have forged over the vast majority of Steve Kerr’s five-year run as head coach. Talented, skilled, smart, unified and ruthless.

    This web site certainly has all the information I wanted concerning this subject and
    didn’t know who to ask.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    out. Please let me know where you got your design.
