Kaleo is an Icelandic indie pop / rock / folk band established in 2012 and their first major public appearance Iceland. Firmly a phenomenon in their home country of Iceland, the four-piece band Kaleo is set to descend upon foreign shores in 2015, bringing their gorgeous blend of folk, blues, country, and rock to a wider mainstream audience in America. Best friends since attending elementary school in the small town outside of Reykjavik, the band began playing together at the age of 17. They named the band Kaleo, which means “the sound” in Hawaiian. Kaleo has since moved to Austin, TX. (Source: officialkaleo.com)
[…]You and me together riding into the sun
Live without care, with the wind in my hair
Driving through the desert, yeah I’ll go anywhere
Take me where the wheels take me, far away
Wheels take me, I can’t stay
Wheels take, any place today
Imagine myself in an automobile
a hundred miles an hour if you know how I feel.
Alone with my mind, leave my worries behind
I might even reach the border, it’s just a matter of time
I said take me where the wheels take me, far away.
Wheels take me, can’t stay.
Wheels take me, any place today.
Ohh I’m going to San Diego, here I come.
San Fransisco, it won’t be long.
Sacramento, yeah in the sun. I just might go
I said I’m going to San Diego and San Jose
San Francisco and hang by the bay
Sacramento, yeah all the way I just might go
all the way to Mexico oho
I just might go all the way down to Mexico.

When you love something like reading — or drawing or music or nature — it surrounds you with a sense of connection to something great.

A Hawaiian mother/daughter duo. If you close your eyes, these two will transport you to the Islands. Devine, soulful, spiritual.
Can you feel the breeze? Hear the ocean breaking on the shoreline?
Aloha Kakahiaka. (Good morning)
My early morning routine, My zone, My sweet spot, is detonated.
I’m on the mid-afternoon train to Manhattan.
Everything is out of order. Way out of order.
It’s a sparsely occupied train.
A few Suits. Students. Tourists chattering. Children buzzing.
All rules of order violated. Quiet Car? What’s that?
The landscape is foreign as it flashes by the window.
The whites of winter turn to the darks of buildings, and back. Strobe lights. Disco. Discombobulating.
Pulse quickens. Wrong train? No. Daylight. Mr. Hyde makes his appearance in Light, flings his robe back, and works to shake off his lethargy.
Eyes are heavy from scanning emails. Words are merging together. Regurgitation, without nourishment. Chewing, remembering nothing, looping back to re-read. Sigh.
I give up. [Read more…]
