Lenka is back with "Shadows"

UPDATE: Lenka interview in the Cambridge Chronicle
Some contemporary pop music can damage my old ears, but Lenka's is sweet and melodic. We talked recently, as she was preparing for her current US tour and release of new CD, "Shadows."  There are some really good tracks on "Shadows" and the more you listen, the more you will like. "Nothing Here but Love" and "After the Winter" have that great Lenka melody, while "Nothing" and "Top of Memory Lane" are just two of the slow ballads that grow on you with each playing.  Check out Lenkaland, and this delightful, live version of The Show below. Her live performances sound just as good as the studio recordings!

Oh, I remember that song! I didn't know who sang it. I'm old, and I like it.

Love,

She's darling! Great song. The words are so true to life and the tune upbeat and bouncy. Lenka has a clear, melodic voice that is easy to listen to. This was fun, Nick. I may go out and purchase her CD...and I'm 70.

Same here, I really enjoy listening to that song. I think old age is not a hinder to liking and listening to new and hip songs. It likewise may me smile and think of something happy. Stay tuned and enjoy! Hope you’ll have a wonderful and blessed weekend ahead of you.

I'm not familiar with her or her music. Guess I am too old!
I'll have to give her a listen.

Oh, why SHOULDN'T you enjoy it! Age is just a number (at least when it comes to music - my joints, now that's another thing...)

I am like photowannabe too old to be familiar with this music and much too old to like the music, but the singer is very beautiful!
Thanks for visiting.

I don't think I've heard that one before. It's got a good beat. I could dance to it. Giving away my own age?

Jenny said...

I love her!

That sweet sound and intense lyrical contrast!

She is amazing!

I need to add a few more of her songs to my playlist. I think I only have two at the moment!

Gosh. I'm going to be smiling over this song all day!

Hooray for me!

And thanks to you for making that happen!
