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 released this spring.

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!)

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 means a lot to me!

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 favourite.)

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.

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 is going to be different. so this month’s music mix is all about trying to be upbeat and … um… full of hope – but in a proactive & non-cheesy way. as bowie so wisely sang:

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.
