Salutations fellow Jammies. There is an innate response to art an individual feels when it is faced with superior craftsmanship and work; an undeniable sentiment towards beauty. So, for today, PutYourJammiesOn recognizes the medium of music AND film today. Our first pick comes from the extraordinary self-titled début from James Blake. I recently pasted another track from this album and after giving the whole work a good listen, I strongly recommend you to check it out. The second pick comes from two artists, the first of which is a cover, and the second (Esmerelda) being the original.
Finally, our last recommendation is a first here at PutYourJammiesOn- a film recommendation! Our official “Pajama Stamp of Approval” is awarded to Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech. The film stars Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter. The cast is outstanding and the stories development is impeccable. A real emotional delivery comes through with something that is so personal, yet being experienced on such a public main-stage provides an interesting and original perspective. Watch it! On to the music.
Pick 1: James Blake – I Mind
Pick 2: Nina Simone – Misunderstood
Original: Santa Esmeralda – Misunderstood
And here is a trailer for the movie The King’s Speech.
