Music I Dig 050: Alpine – Gasoline (2012)

Alpine is Phoebe, Lou, Phil, Christian, Ryan and Tim. They hail from Melbourne, Australia. They make some pretty nice music – if all their music is as good as is ‘Gasoline’ (I still have to check that out), their latest single. It is one of twelve tracks on their album ‘A is for Alpine’.

‘Gasoline’ is what you expect a good summer track to be and feel like; happy, bright, careless, soothing and a tiny wee uplifting. There’s also this unofficial video that is doing rather well (viewer-wise).

Movie I dig 011: Les Petits Mouchoirs (Little White Lies) (2010)

After watching ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘ I’m ready to go-go on a summer holiday at the beach. Sea food, beach-life, friends, meeting new people, sun and fun!

It’s a bunch of friends who decide to go on their annual holiday at one of the friends’ beach-house in the south of France, despite one of their friends being in the hospital after he was hit by a truck while driving his scooter. While being on this holiday everyone of these friends seems to have their own personal issues. Telling more would spoil it.

All in all I had a really good time watching this movie. The characters are quite likeable and the directing is done nicely.
