  1. I’m so glad these are up your alley Kev let me know what you thought of them, all different from each other but pretty nice


    1. Nick Cave was clever, vulnerable, sharp and sometimes strikingly obnoxious. Reminded me of shots of Bowie touring America in a limo on his Young Americans era. Florence’s place is a treat, crafted by her alone. NUMA very relaxing to listen to. Thanks for the shoe-ins!


      1. No worries Kev I’m so glad you liked them, yeah Cave has that same energy as Bowie – mysterious, dangerous, intelligent, it’s a dynamite combo that makes people lose their minds! I see what you mean about Young Americans era Bowie…is that the Thin White Duke persona? I can definitely see the similarity. More stuff to come Kev, hope you like the next ones, it will be a weekly series. Take care xx


  2. The Florence Welch video was so relaxing. Her house is like an enchanting cottage out of a fairy tale. I’ve also been watching the National Theatre’s productions each week (although I missed Frankenstein!) and they’re always good. My fav so far has been Treasure Island! Thanks for all these suggestions.


    1. Yeah she is like a fairy with this soft floaty way about her, she is beautiful. I agree – so relaxing 😊 I’m so glad you are watching the National Theatre productions, they are amazing aren’t they, I haven’t seen treasure Island I will definitely check it out. I hope you are having a relaxing weekend ❤😊


    1. I’m so glad Diana more of these to come on here it will be a weekly series. The channel with the NUMA mix on it has loads more mixes like this on there. I love the cute animation to go with it on Youtube.. that also adds to the atmosphere. Take care xx
