(Photo by John Anderson, Austin Chronicle) I dare you (dare you) to listen to Bobby Jealousy’s Rainbow and not find yourself singing it throughout the day. Seriously. Go on. Consider yourself dared. This band is swell. Austin-based, and comprised of the fiercely entertaining Sabrina Ellis, Seth Gibbs, Mark Stoney and Clint Simmons, they were named one of [...]
I’ve been playing lots of Tennis lately. No, not the sport. That would be ridiculous. I’ve been playing the music from the band Tennis, made up of husband-and-wife duo Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. You can listen to them here. Or watch this… I found that top photo here.
*UME photo from Beat Lawrence So 80 kabillion people are about to descend upon our city. And I couldn’t be more excited. I’m already filling my calendar with interesting parties (watch out, this blog is going to be filled with party shots and details over the next few weeks) and music too. Last year, I [...]
I’m ready for a lazy, low-key weekend. No big plans. I do want to clean the house, open the doors and turn up the music. And here’s what I’m listening to. Violens sound like 1983 to me. And I plan to listen to a lot of 1983 this weekend. Seriously. I feel like I’m in 7th [...]
Photo from IndieBall Rogue Wave is a swell California band. Thier song Harmonium was released a while ago, I think 2007, but it’s currently featured on an MLS Soccer commercial that plays very often in our home. I love this song.
I can’t believe I haven’t posted about them until now. Because they’ve been playing non-stop in our house for a while now. Especially since their new album Golden came out about a month ago. The Tontons (Asli Omar, Tom Nguyen, Adam Martinez, Justin Marinez) are a severely talented group of people, and I can’t wait to see [...]
We’re in the process of cleaning out seventy years of stuff…a lifetime of work…piled up high into five barns. I’m spending a lot of time in these barns. Looking through the artifacts of love ones’ lives. And even though it’s stupid degrees outside, I feel so lucky to be given the task. It’s a sober [...]
I can’t stop listening to The Civil Wars. This is what my house sounds like.
I’m going to Miami today. And I have this song in my head. I realize it’s really built for Africa more than Miami, but something about it is ringing true in my ears.
It’s raining in Normandy today. So I’m listening to all kinds of lo-fi songs that sound like versions of James Blake, as well as the actual James Blake. I love rainy days.
