With all the moving from Kreuzberg to Mitte and setting up an office and home all over again and trying to get work done in the middle of it all, it pretty much slipped my mind that on Mondays I usually post a song I like on my blog.

Fortunately, Debbie just reminded me that it’s Music Monday when I mentioned that I had bought Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” today* and she was in the process of purchasing some (still undisclosed) music herself.

So real quick: here is the beautiful song “Zebra” by Baltimore duo Beach House – a song that I discovered and fell in love with fairly recently, even though I’ve had the album “Teen Dream” for several months already. So yes, Judith, you’re right, it’s not such a great idea to get too many albums at the same time – but better to space them out a bit.

I’ll soon get back to this band in a future post about something that deserves its own heading. And I don’t mean that I’ll be writing about the web show / video podcast “The Interface” (from which this video is taken) – even though I do highly recommend that show and watch it regularly myself. But it may be about something somewhat similar…
* I got the cover with the big palm tree on the left. It reminded me the most of Florida, where I first was confronted with the concept of the suburb.

  2. I'm afraid I already missed them. They played when I first got here. Glad you got to see them.

  3. Hallo Luci,

    This is Tommaso, Tessa's friend, how have you been? I just wanted to say hi, I see that you're in Berlin now. I just came back from a tour of Berlin, Prague, and Florence and I fell in love with Berlin. Do you know of any schools that…um…need me to come learn German and stay forever :^)

  4. Tommaso! So great to read from you. Wish I had known you were coming through Berlin. I've been here for a few months now. How come we're not friends on facebook? Find me: facebook.com/luciwest – So that next time when you come to Berlin we can meet up!!! Tessa is due for a visit as well. And I'm sure there are a billion ways to move here. Going to school is probably easiest but not cheapest. That's how I first came to US. Btw, Prague and Florence are on my list this year as well. Can't wait..
