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.

For Mother’s Day, Harry (with some technical assistance from his father) made me a Mixed Tape…or a personalized CD…of my favorite songs, or rather, my favorite songs according to Harry. Some are not my favorite songs. And some are. And oh my gosh, I love this CD. I love that he did this (Although how [...]
