Iโ€™m moving to New York City in early June, and am overcome with wonder. Canโ€™t wait to dig in.

Late Spring Music and a Wes Anderson Reference

It’s a greying day in early May, and I just want to find my way to a slinky, swanky bar and go dancing.ย Maybe to this one:

Ladino Song – Oi Va Voiย 

Something about that song, maybe it’s the subtle horns, reminds me of a Wes Anderson movie. The melody is vaguely unsettling, almost sinister, as most of his visuals are. I love that subtle subversion.

It’s a little something, but here’s one of my favorite songs (this one’s actually from a Wes Anderson short film, Hotel Chevalier.):

If that can’t get you where you’re going, then you’re going the wrong places.
