September is coming up! That means there’s just 10 more days left to say goodbyes! That also means @ellolovey Sept doodle-a-day challenge is up! Don’t know the doodle-a-day challenge Well go to Rhianna’s instagram and find out! Also, snag her cards (I have so many) and prints from @whistshop or @duncanandyork. And check out her work at the Fall @showandtellpopupshop Oct 19 - 28! Here are her thoughts:
“My name was inspired by Fleetwood Mac’s song “Rhiannon,” so I’ve always had this inherent connection to their music. Despite the “rumours” of this band’s turmoil, this album is a stone cold classic. What grabs me about this album is the raw emotion that shines through the storytelling, harmonies and musical chemistry of the band’s five members. This album doesn’t sugarcoat love. Since it was written during the break-ups of various band members, you feel the intense pain and heartbreak of love and loss. It’s mystical, poetic, haunting and weirdly uplifting. It balances light and dark masterfully. “Go Your Own Way” is deeply bitter, yet it motivates the hell out of me. This album proves that magic can still be born out of the stormy seasons in our lives. I will always have nostalgic feels for this album.”
The countdown is real! Come say bye while we pack up our house!

Peter Gabriel - So (1986) // This record changed my life. For me, this fifth solo album by Peter Gabriel was a refuge of security and also a key to a new world. 🔑
The tape on the top right-hand side of the picture is what I wanted for my birthday sometime in the second half of the 80s. It was one of the first pieces in my music collection. I think I fell in love with the cover (Peter Saville!) while looking through the records of my parents' friends. What an expression and grace came over from this artwork. That was of direct interest to me. We listened to the record and the music spoke to me. And then I watched the videos of "Sledgehammer" and "Don't Give Up" on TV and I was enchanted. 🔨
Throughout my life I've probably never listened to an album so often. There were always phases when I heard this album up and down. It gave me strength, drive, inspiration and just a good feeling. While other children listened to fairy tales and radio plays to fall asleep, this cassette ran in my children's room. 🛌 That tape made me feel and gave me support in hard times. And it was a door opener for me to pop music and to the works of many artists and bands, which became and still are important for me. As a child, these were primarily Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush and Genesis. Later I discovered artists like Laurie Anderson, Stewart Copeland, Daniel Lanois, Manu Katché or Otis Redding through this record.
The album has never left me and always inspired me anew. Melodies, sounds and text snippets of "Mercy Street", "This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds)", or the drumbeat of "Red Rain", come to my mind again and again. They are deep inside me and I am very happy about it. I still think it is one of the best pop albums ever recorded and produced. Timeless grandiosity.
I know that this record is very precious to many people. I want to hear your stories. What are your favourite songs And which stories or feelings do you associate with this album 🖤

Yesterday I picked this one to spin. It fitted perfectly the early evening hours, that melancholy time between the end of the day and the beginning of the night... spinning it again now, with the gentle morning sun coming through the white curtains of my living room. And it came to me that it's just the ideal soundtrack for the end of summer.
Vini Reilly is here to provide a necessary soothing voice for that. This is a dreamy, airy record... but somewhat desolate too. It's melancholic. I adore how it plays with echo, how the percussion and keys are always up front, while the gentleness of the guitar stays constant trough the songs, in the background. Steadily, melodic.
Sketch for Dawn is just beautiful, as is Never Known. Both objectively so. But the whole album is tight, it's cohesive and it makes sense. I just float with it. Each song like a verse in a poem, maybe
And then Missing Boy, the darkest one from the album... We all know who was he singing about, Ian Curtis.
I get Tony Wilson in this one, although he was totally wrong about The Stranglers. But Vini Reilly is indeed and underappreciated genius.
This does sound like the end of summer to me. So it's the perfect spin for today, the last day of August. The crazy, carefree and intense month that this was has come to an end, and it's time to let go and ground myself yet again.
"The dream is better / Disolves into softness / But the end / The end is always the same" ♥
