Happy Friday everyone! This seventh edition of Musicellaneous features two gems at once: the American band Covet and its frontwoman multi-instrumentalist Yvette Young, who is by the way also a painter.
Covet‘s genre is officially called math rock, which I would perhaps prepend with “maidenly”.
It’s Friday again, the time when music stars are falling from the sky, or now and then a whole nebula!
We’ve recently been to Paris and strolled along the banks of Seine, where all kinds of old stuff was being sold: postcards, posters, paintings, books.
Occasionally you stumble upon a really interesting artifact.
So we’ve spotted a brilliant version of Mona Lisa, which we named “Mona Lisa Plus” amongst ourselves. It looked so appropriate in the company of hundreds of canonical copies of Da Vinci’s work.
It’s an unusual review today: I’m writing about my experiences with the fastest-growing online supermarket chain in the Netherlands—Picnic—which has finally opened its virtual doors before me.
I’ve signed up for it a little more than a year ago and landed at the place 200+ on the waiting list at the moment.
Later I checked on the app several times but my number never changed so I forgot about it a while later.
As it turns out, you can make postcards yourself.
Furthermore, they will feel much more special and, with a bit of luck, prettier than ones from the store!
Bigger pictures are under the cut.
