This is not a music mix

in lieu of the fact that the music mixes are currently on hiatus i thought it would be a good idea to share some tunes with you that have been making my happy lately. nothing new here though, folks. i’ve only been entertaining the oldies. PS: i can’t believe i haven’t…

Leann Grimes

i included a track by leann grimes in the through the jungle mix, but i want to urge you guys to go to his site and get the entire album (it’s free). leanne grimes is shane conerty, a 24 year old dude from north carolina – this album was inspired…

simon-garfunkel-covered

Simon / Garfunkel / Covered

i put together this playlist of paul simon / simon & garfunkel cover songs last week and have been wanting to share it… been toying around with the idea of sharing the mixes via a streaming site, and 8tracks seemed like a pretty good bet (thanks to kate for turning…

17 it was a good day

It was a good day

mid-month music mix is here. there’s no rhyme or reason to this one, just a bunch of tunes i have been enjoying & playing to death lately. i decided not to over think it this time round. truth. It was a good day. playlist: Fleet Foxes – Lorelai The Wilderness…

donald glover

you probably know donald glover as the ever amusing troy barnes on community… which is where i admittedly got to know about him too. what i didn’t know was that he is a multi-talented individual who also does stand up comedy, makes music under the name childish gambino and writes comedy…

Last of the country gentlemen

Josh T. Pearson promised himself he wouldn’t shave until he put out a second record. Now he hasn’t seen his face in “over ten fucking years” and doesn’t know what he’ll do with the length of ashen fodder he’s grown when his new album Last of the Country Gentlemen is…

I’d rather dance with you

thanks to lance for reminding me of this brilliant video. i was just reliving this song the other day, particularly these lyrics: Even if I could hear what you said I doubt my reply would be interesting for you to hear Because I haven’t read a single book all year…

tina

since i’m in a tina kind of mood. man, this woman is INFECTIOUS. just watch any of her live performances & you can’t help but feel your heart swell for her. they also make you want to run up and down some stairs (those legs!) all images courtesy of the…

Ships In The Night

hello again. you may have noticed things look pretty different around here… a redesign is almost as good as a holiday. almost. thanks for all those link recommendations, i have been making my way through them slowly but surely. i always appreciate it when people take the time to comment – it…

Formative Years

i have always been a music lover. i would often sit in the living room on my parents’ brown corduroy couches (yeah) listening to their old records and cds. when my older brothers weren’t around i’d sneak into their bedrooms and sample hits from the eighties (a-ha is still a…

10×10

wow, check out these awesome custom covers by richard perez of his top ten albums of 2010. psh, makes all other top ten lists look pretty pathetic in comparison, eh? i’d like to see everyone make album art from now on, please. thanks for bringing this to our attention designworklife (stellar…

10 golden years

golden years

it’s december. wow. 2010 went by so quickly, yet i can barely remember january. this was my first post of 2010 where i declared that i would ‘go out and see more stuff’. i’m not sure i lived up to my resolution. i’d like to be hopeful in thinking that 2011…

got something for you

it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.

bowie, golden years

this has pretty much been my theme song lately. i have listened to it every single day… sometimes on repeat. man! what i would give to be in that crowd, funking it up to bowie. please take notice of the dancers on the stages, they have the best moves! bowie…
