Make it Simple to Last Your Whole Life Long

My recent musical cross section:

* I read this music blog called Obscuresound.com and it what you'd expect from an indie music blog, lots of newsie caps, soft spoken singer/songwriters, and political and personal angst.

So imagine the refreshing awesome when I clicked on their latest sampling and found THIS!! Amazing. Just amazing. Threw me back and I liked it.

*My friend Kathleen pointed The Dears out to me and I could barely believe my eyes/ears

*It was a Smiths reprise if I'd ever seen it. So THAT led me to being all nostalgic for The Smiths and realizing that I lost most of that music when my laptop got stolen so the amazing Brett came to my rescue and sweetness continues to only be joking

*Bon Iver has had a regular spot

*Along side Imogen. How can you not love how original she is? Enough to overlook her man hands, that's how much.

*Just to be totally weird and, well, Liz, Lady Gaga and some of Britney's stuff is highly addictive but rather formulaic. I giggled through this whole illustration of it. Its literally Britney's Circus laid over the music track from Gaga's Poker Face.

*Ne-Yo is quickly gaining a permanent spot in my musical heart. He's blindingly talented, does all his own writing and production, knows how to wear a suit, his latest album is called "The Year of the Gentleman" and he makes hypnotic positive stuff like this.

I've been a fan since his first album in 06 but he just gets better and better. Totally amazing.

31 Days till Coachella! Woot!

Great post. I've got some new stuff to catch up on. And I'm totally in love with your new layout. And I'm totally jealous of Coachella.
