Hayden Thorpe - Diviner Music Album Reviews

The former Wild Beasts singer embarks on a new direction on his soul-searching solo debut, stripping back his songwriting to a reverent hush.
The British singer-songwriter Hayden Thorpe released “Diviner” in late February 2019, just a year after the final performance of his band Wild Beasts. From its stark opening chords and breathy first line—“I’m a keeper of secrets, pray do tell”—the song sounded markedly personal. With little more than his stately countertenor and humble piano, Thorpe harnessed the energy of quiet solitude and proceeded to pitch that emotion skyward until the music felt bathed in a dim light. After more than a decade with Wild Beasts, “Diviner” pointed to a different direction for Thorpe.

  • In 2-cup glass measuring cup, pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Add in one packet of Knox gelatin, whisking constantly until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour in 1 large package of Berry Blue Jello gelatin, whisking until completely dissolved. Let cool then pour into chilled baking dish before returning to refrigerator for 20 minutes or until layer is set.

  • Refrigerate Hawaiian Layered Jello for at least 1 hour before cutting.
Hawaiian Layered Jello is the perfect treat for your Hawaiian Luau or birthday party. We made this for Emily’s 14th birthday party this week and it was a big hit! Not only was it cute, but it was also super tasty.
Key to Success #1 – Do Not Grease the Pan
You’ll want to put together this dessert in a 9X13-inch glass baking dish. Some of my favorite baking dishes are from Pyrex. They are well made and hold up well to lots of baking. I like ones with straight sides and squared bottom.

You do not need to grease the baking dish when making Hawaiian Layered Jello. In fact, if you grease the pan it could cause your layers to be muddled. The Jello will not stick to the pan.

Key to Success #2 – Measure Milk Mixture Carefully
The white layers of Jello are made from a mixture of plain gelatin, water, and sweetened condensed milk. When you mix up the milk mixture, you’ll end up with 4 cups of the mixture.

You’ll have 4 white layers so be sure to measure out exactly 1 cup of milk mixture for each layer. This will ensure that your white layers are even when your dessert is completed.

If your milk mixture starts to gel or thicken while you’re putting your Hawaiian Layered Jello together, just pop the milk mixture into the microwave and heat it for 20-30 seconds until it is slightly warmed. Be sure to stir it well to make sure it’s completely thinned out.

Key to Success #3 – Play the Waiting Game
When you mix up each Jello layer, be sure you let it cool a bit before you pour it into the baking dish. You don’t want it to melt the layer beneath it. It doesn’t have to be completely cooled, but you want it to be only warm to the touch and not hot.

After you pour each layer of Jello or milk mixture into the pan, be sure to put the pan back into the refrigerator to let it set. Letting each layer set before adding more will ensure that your layers don’t mix and get muddled. It’ll keep your colors nice and bright.

I let my layers refrigerate for about 20 minutes before adding a new layer. That seemed to be plenty of time for the newest layer to firm up.

Get Creative
You can get creative with your Jello colors or the order of your Jello layers. It would be super cute to do a Red White and Blue Layered Jello. You’re only limited by the Jello colors that you can find.

If you try other color/flavor combinations, let us know in the comments!

The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.
