vi-dii-oo

Hi lovely boys, girls and all the beautiful animals,

Just got back from tenting alone in the middle of the Icelandic wilderness…at the foot of a volcano actually…(I will share some bits of it a bit later) :)Now it is nice and warm to sit inside, drink hot tea and share the music video that just got out of the Flying Rabbit’s oven. Huge thanks Racqui, Rabbit, all the fairies, Gaex for mastering and of course You all for watching:)

Lots of love ,joy and August wonderfulness,

Possi.

The open letter with a heart stamp on it.

possiidont care

Hi my loves:)

I decided to write this post as an open answer to a letter I just received. “Hi, Possi, I used to love your songs and was looking forward to your album but if it is going to be like the new song then I am sorry but you lost a fan.It is sad to see you doing music like that.Best, (—-)

Dear —-

Thank you for caring so much and for your honesty and time to listen and write.
There is nothing I can do. I am not the one who creates songs. They just come though me in the form they want to and I try my best to preserve their original spirit. As souls pick their parents, I believe, before they are born into this world, songs do too.For some reason the Whisky song picked me and Racqui as his parents.
I love all the music in the world as I love all living beings in this world. But still, there is no bigger love than the one I feel towards my songs just like there is nothing comparable with a mother’s love towards her children. Some of them are quiet, some of them are total rebels, some of them are confident and the other ones so fragile and innocent-but they all need to be loved, listened to and understood. Some of them open themselves up quickly but at the same time it can take years to get to know the other ones.Just like you, just like me-we need love. As a mum it makes me sad that you are saying like that about my kid. I feel fear that you are around, I become cautious about that my kid is around someone who is not willing to learn to understand and love him.I will do my best to take him as far away from you as I can, I will do my best to find him a place where there are other kids like him – different in numerous ways and people who are open-minded, open-hearted and patient enough to get connected to them, experience them and enjoy the time spent together-appreciate them as beautiful human beings.
As a musician the only thing I have ever wished is that my songs would reach and connect people who are free and understanding spirits , brave enough to be who they are, grow, learn and love.That’s the only reason I am sharing the songs with you all. I would write them anyway, with or without you – this is my need in this life, in this body I was born into – I write song because of ME.
But all the beautiful sunny days that I have spent locked in my studio, to make those songs hearable for you too – it is just purely because of YOU and that I love you and would love to give something meaningful to you because maybe…there is a perfect moment in your life someday this song could be with you and bring some magic into your life.If you feel disappointed with my song then you have never loved me unconditionally and really. It is better that you go…don’t come back just because if you like my next song that is going to be calm and ambient-the kind of music you like. A friend is not someone who is around only to share happy moments. A friend is someone who is there no matter what. Come back if your heart is really ready to embrace absolutely anything that comes out of me:heavy metal, classic, k-pop,country…- if you really want to put labels on magical things like music. You, my fans,mean as much as my closest friends to me, I am sharing the most hidden corners of my heart with you through music. I feel hurt and fragile now in front of you to have opened myself up to someone who actually have never been my real friend.Maybe you become one one day?

I am still sending you love and wish everything will go well on your path,

Yours,
Possi

But all you crazy, colourful, playful, full of life, queer, different, living,experiencing-life-to-the-fullest, limitless, wandering strange kind of total FREAKS who really enjoy that weird song – you know that there is no better feeling of knowing that you are a freak among other freaks, totally free and unconditionally loved.

Thank you all for the feeling of belonging. You make me feel not alone in the world where most people are afraid to discover who they are. We are deep and endlessūüôā

Your Possimiste

Day

 

7am. Teardrops of the rain on the first spring leaves. Five slices of cucumber on a slice of rye bread.Smoke of the clouds above your head. To watch a dandelion through an ¬†another ¬†dandelion.Catch a smile of a passer by. Take a walk to the unknown. Hear a magical melody in my mind¬īs ear. . See a ladibird with 5 dots. And a some little¬†kids picking limestones at theseaside.Rest the¬†tired feet at the end of the day. Send telepathic love to dear people around me. Fall asleep with a calm heart knowing ¬†that¬†I¬†have appreciated the gifts today gave me.

This.

Is.

My.

Kind.

Of.

Happiness.

Dragonwalk

imageHi boys and girls. I wrote this small ( and a little bit funny)poem while I was walking through the rainy Reykjavík this evening. During the past two weeks in New York I just realized how we should just share all the weirdness in us with the world, as much as possible.Weirdnesses are beautiful.( The next post is going to be about NY ) Hugs towards you:)P.

 

Dragonwalk

I found myself from an empty town.

At the border of the horizon.

on my left hand there was night,

the last sunrays on my right.

Straight through the old graveyard

I left a trace –

in this empty town

the most lively place.

By the lake

stood a dragon

Majestetic and cold

of stone.

“Why would someone

sculpt a dragon

in the middle of a town

where no one lives…

and no-one any **** gives?”

I wondered,thought, did feel

it must be something that someone has seen

and wanted to make the world believe

that dragons are real.

I believed.

‘Cause I have heard some say, I remember,:

 

 

“They arrive with the first mushroom rains in early September.”

Possi’s secret Christmas playlist

possilist
Heihó dearest friends, how has your Christmas time been?

Mine has been quite busy. Just finished a couple of songs for Analogrunner¬īs EP that is coming out in the beginning of 2016. Did a remix for the first time in my life. Enjoying my own album recording process and trying to put my ideas in order, which is kinda a task.But despite that I still remind myself that it is important to take time for my loved ones and for enjoying :

Cold-cold weather. Icicles. Slippery roads. The Christmas tree that I got really cheaply from the second hand store( yes, a fake one…there are barely no tr√©es in Iceland! So let at least those few ones stay where they belong, in the forestūüôā. Candles, candles, as many candles as you can imagine. Gingerbread. Mulled wine. Grandma knitted socks. Christmas calendar and norhern lights. And of course ¬†christmas songs. But not the ones we hear everyday and everywhere. Something much more fresh. And that’s what I must share with youūüôā

“Snowflakes Falling Down” by Simon Panrucker

Simon Panrucker¬īs Christmas album ¬† really is a hidden christmas gem and my most favorite musical find this year. Blessed be the day when I accidentally stumbled upon it on FMA website. A definite MUST HAVE in your Christmas playlist this year. So must that I even picked 2 songs for this post. Anyway, this is that kind of song I would be really proud of if I had written it myself…(Unfortunately or fortunately I didn’t , but it would be super great to make a cover for it one day, who knows) Beautiful melody. Interesting¬†harmony. Unpredictable. Shortly, a fantastic track, in my opinion one of the best Christmas songs recently written…Thanks Simon for that!

 

 

 

“J√≥lak√∂ttinn” by Bj√∂rk

This is a traditional icelandic Christmas song. A bit creepy, isn’t it? Well, in Iceland there are 13 santas and they are all really naughty. One of them is j√≥lak√∂tturinn – a big black Christmas cat who steals and eats kids who haven’t got new clothes and taken a bath before the Christmas Eve. Mnj√¶uūüėČ

¬†“Angels We Have Heard On High” by Sufjan Stevens

O-o-o,gloria-aa-a this is what happens if you put one of my favorite Christmas songs, one of my favorite musicians and a beautiful choir arrangement together. Magic happens‚̧ This song is from his Christmas album “Silver and Gold” and to be honest, you can skip the “silver” from the title because the whole album is just pure gold.

¬†“Christmas At Sea” ¬†by Sting

Watching Sting¬īs live from ¬†Durham Cathedral has been one of my most important Christmas traditions since I saw it for the first time exactly one winter morning when we ourselves( me and my best friends) were going on a Christmas tour in different churches in Estonia. So this video always brings me back those good memories. Basically this live is in my playlist from the day the first snow falls down until it goes away again in the spring. ¬†This song is just one of the many pearls (And has a beautiful harpist singing beautiful gaelic so beautifully that I have shivers on my skin every time I listen to it)

5.

“Fairytale of New York” by¬†Katie Melua and The Pogues

I think the most important thing for a singer is to div deeply into the song he is singing and let the song take first over him and then all the others who are listening. And this is IT! And a beautiful song too, of course!

¬†“White Winter Hymnal” by Fleet Foxes
This song takes me to the forest without actually going to the forest. Beautiful song, catchy song and a beautiful video. One of my this year¬īs favourite discoveries.

 

7.

“Little Drummer Boy” by Josh Groban

 There are about zillion different versions of that song but  my totally favorite arrangement is this one.

8.

“Vive Le Vent” by MIKA

O la la, I remember how we needed to learn this song by heart every Christmas for the French lesson before we could go and enjoy our Christmas vacation. H√ļrraaa! Another song from the section “good arrangements”. And MIKA is cool as well:)

“Winter’s Love” by Animal Collective

.Ohh, I would like to dedicate this beautiful winter song to all beautiful #vegans in the world;)<3

“Happy Christmas, You Guys” by Simon Panrucker

So good, I don’t even need to start thinking what to say to end this playlist, Simon Panrucker has already stolen my words:) I’m gonna listen to¬†¬†this song out loud ¬†in the morning of the Christmas day while making preparations for the night, and you should too !HAPPY CHRISTMAS, YOU GUYS!

IMG_5399kiisu

Sending gingerbread hearts and wish you all a lot of wonderfulness into the December time, be good children…well, just a bit naughty, but mostly nice, respect the plants under the snow, don’t step on them and don’t forget to build snowman and make snow angelsūüėČ

 

 

Kiss,

Possi

Strawberry-heart

I wish I only could put into words what happens inside a little girl’s heart when the sun is kissing her cheeks for the first time over an eight-month long winter. She sits¬† there nearby the lake in the middle of five swans eating strawberries. Little by little her frozen heart starts melting and becomes one with the lake. Her hair will turn into branches and ears into leaves ready to catch every song that the birds sitting on her will sing.

Have a beautiful loveful day and here is a little drawing for you:)

Your PossiWP_20150506_008

Uus

engillinn

 

Uus means “new” in Estonian and ¬†every new is something¬†¬†well forgotten from the old times¬†. At least we have a saying like that. So let this little word be the spell for the next year and maybe it will tell something about it and maybe ,probably, likely, possibly there will be more new songs in this beautiful old the language of my heart and nature that the post ¬†title is written in.

I draw a little goat angel for us¬†all¬†(because 2015 is the year of goat) to say thank you for the last year.He or she, i don’t even know myself, is ¬†bringing ¬†you peace, light, music and happiness. You can keep him¬†everywhere, in your pocket, your ear, in the nose of the shoe or just in your beautiful mind – doesn’t really matter. Just that you know, he is there, taking care of you and me and us‚̧

 

Have a beautiful and happy new year, dear friends!

 

Your Possi (who is going to watch the New Year ‘s Eve bonfire near the sea. It is a heart warming ¬†Icelandic tradition in the cold wind:)

This must be happiness

Having run¬†up the street in the middle of this ice-cold starry nighted city, ¬†hands and legs so frozen that I could barely feel them and a big scar on my knee under the woolen socks (girls who keep staring up to the sky don’t even notice¬†the ice stones on their way) I opened the door of my little warm house and said to myself¬†¬†: “This must be happiness….”

Behind The Stars

10293592_834374553258290_1381879587973611078_o

Hei, dear diary

I think the most beautiful things are hidden things, things that lie behind something and I just wanted to share with you some little beautiful moments and feelings that I had when creating the music video for Star Caesar, which was mostly filmed in Greenland.

So one nice winter evening we took a small-small plane to Nuuk,Greenland and flew exactly through the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Here is a picture:10293592_834374553258290_1381879587973611078_o

This was our little red house in Nuuk. I draw this picture during the crazy snowstorm that lasted for 3 days. We were just sitting and drawing, watching the waves and eagles that flew by.

1240512_858400907522321_561502276191214452_nThis is me and the wool socks that my grandmother made for me sitting  outside in Р30 degrees and watching the northern lights.

IMG_0277IMG_0330

And those are two elves who are hanging out at our veranda in¬†the national costume . Can you imagine that¬†¬†the colourful part of the womans’ costume is made of zillions of tiny pearls!In the old times they used fish eggs for that.

10269520_834395123256233_7560602615318266888_n

Everyone had his own  boat or motor sleigh standing next to his house.

1529902_834375373258208_5583074346518546555_o

Our house was made of wood as most of the older houses in Nuuk. During the nights were we often ¬†wondering what if the polar bear should suddenly appear in ¬†the window. Normally they don’t come to the town because they are afraid of people. Still, some years ago a foreign guy was building a house there and went early in the morning out of the half-finished house to pee. Suddenly he saw from the corner of his¬†eye a white dog standing behind him. Well, then he turned around and it was something a little bit bigger and furrier than just a dog…and he was lucky to have got rather fast legs:)

1529902_834375383258207_6772995192372069674_o (1)For some reason the eyes of the locals  always started bursting sparkles when they talked about food, especially about whale skin. Well, as we stuff  ourselves mostly with veggies, fruits and tons of cocoa we did not try it of course, but our friend who had eaten it once in a soup said that it tasted  like a chewing gum for a stupid foreigner who is not used to it:)

IMG_0949This picture above is taken one day before the crazy snow storm began, silence before the storm.

IMG_0995

And I think it is the best feeling ever to be stuck in the snowstorm, watching snowflakes, shooting a video and having your 12-tone xylophone with you, making songs of winter and warmth in your heart. And knowing that those moments are always with you and now also with you who you read this:)

IMG_1159

So, and this is our plane that still managed to take off with tons of antifreeze, one extra pilot and without the wheels touching the ground.And even the door did not close because the snow was just everywhere:)

IMG_1167

But we made it and finally, about 6 month later this little adventure turned into   a video and  now I can finally go and bake some gingerbread and make a song for you for Christmas:)

 

LOVE to you all

 

Possi
