Something Blue (Darcy & Rachel, #2) by Emily GiffinFollowing the smash-hit Something Borrowed comes story of betrayal, redemption, and forgiveness
Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: Her beauty and charm. Her fiance, Dex. Her lifelong best friend, Rachel. She never needed anything else. Or so she thinks until Dex calls off their dream wedding and she uncovers the ultimate betrayal. Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to re-create her glamorous life on a new continent. But to her dismay, she discovers that her tried-and-true tricks no longer apply—and that her luck has finally expired. It is only then that she can begin her journey toward redemption, forgiveness, and true love.
The words are accompanied by her jaunty ukelele strumming and the bassy backing of imposing beat boxer Alex Blake-Pink. Listen to some more tunes here. Her singing style is a delicious cross between Nina Simone and Amy Winehouse, fused with the urban heartbeat of beat box. Her lyrics and covers are playful and personal, while her consummate confidence as a performer is all the more extraordinary when you find out she only picked up the ukelele and began gigging two years ago. The couple gig week-in, week-out, on average four times a week. Then after having been given a ukelele by a friend, embarked on learning to play it using the self-help videos on YouTube as instruction yes, really.

Rachel D'Arcy (7of7) 'The Album Verses the E.P'
And so it begins. I expect the Endeavour body count to be high and to have my emotions strained to breaking point. A hit-and-run accident claims the life of an eminent classics professor. Cue the grieving widow, sinister professors, multiple suspects and Endeavour digging in until there are handcuffs. In this last of the four pre-Morse episodes I was pleasantly surprised by the blend of musical genre.
Venue with a penchant for attracting musicians and colourful characters begins broadcasting through home-grown channel. OVER at the Boogaloo something has been brewing. For the past few months this favourite hangout of musos, brimming with regulars with their own unique stories, a place where Shane McGowan, Bernard Butler and many more can be found, has been working on a low-key project, harnessing the soul of the Boogaloo with its own home-grown radio channel. The pub has really famous musical connections. It all made sense. The show is broadcast from a studio in the beer garden, while TV screens broadcast inside the bar.
It feels portentous. As lead singer of Ought, Darcy has created frenzied, wiry, jittery post punk with the singer looking out, surveying the world. Ought make brilliant rock that at times sounds like how this year has made you feel: nervous, antsy, sometimes hostile. Saturday Night is, indeed, a very human record. The contrast to Ought is marked. It never really worked for us, other people bringing in other stuff. So this is really my songs.
