Mood Monday-Kurt Vile-Pretty Pimpin’

“Who are you? Who, Who, Who, Who?”     Do you ever wonder? Do you look at your reflection in the mirror and try to recognize the person looking back at you? I guess this Monday is probably the best day of the week to experience this soul searching, questioning mood. This is my mood…

Apex Shrine-All For You

Cold and hunkered down? This ripping 70’s inspired rock will definitely warm you up. I am sure of it. Guitar love, right here, right now. As if you couldn’t possibly sway to the swagger of the music and the professed love, then just wait for the guitar solos and crushing drums. Maybe we can just…

Literature-Kites

Sadly, summer is coming to an end…….   As much as I hate the idea of another season passing me by, I also recognize that all things eventually come to an end. When there are endings, it opens the possibility of amazing moments to quietly reveal themselves. Sometimes, I wish I could manipulate and stop…

J. Mascis-Wide Awake

Mood Monday Peculiar patterns. For some crazy reason, I find myself awake every day at @ 5:30am. This is tough when I am a total night owl. When I glance at the bright red digital numbers, it is (more often than not) exactly 5:38. Feeling restless and tired, I don’t like to open my eyes…

Beverly-Honey Do

Girls and guitars. Sound, power, and mysterious intrigue, all rolled in to one. My dream world, for sure. I remember begging for a guitar for Christmas when I was about 10. Yes, I was a good girl, and yes, sweet Santa brought it to me. The next part was up to me…..I had to learn…

Phospherescent

Don’t judge a band by the lead singer’s shoes. Well, okay in this case, maybe you should. (Must see picture attached) Matthew Houck stepped out among the vases of flowers and the lingering incense to sing and play onstage in Atlanta, GA.  It was incredible. All the hype is real and he proved it, as…

The Silver Comet-Techno

I accidentally stumbled upon an emerging talent with a way cool, head popping, rock and roll sound that is from Atlanta. The song, Techno, has an electric guitar riff in-between harmonizing vocals, that makes me swoon. There is also a subtle hint of an 80’s throw back band that pleases me.  Can you guess who…

New Music-Real Estate- Talking Backwards

Waiting for new music and patience isn’t my strong suit. But, for now, my waiting can go temporarily on hold due to Real Estate releasing a new song which I only just discovered in the wee hours of the night. Yes, I have listened to it over and over since. Their new album, Atlas which…

Quit Yer Bellyaching and Just Watch….You’re Welcome

I found this sweet relief from a new twitter follower (thanks guys!). This video saved my life this very cold morning in the deep South. With only 9〫   at mid-morning, I was in desperate need for a little warmth and a reminder that this weather is only temporary. Thank you, Sensual Harassment, for this great…

Bear Hands-Giants

Today I have a new obsession, and it is a song that has just floated by me recently.  I can’t get enough of it. Bear Hands is a post punk, indie rock band out of Brooklyn, NY. They are Dylan Rau (vocals/guitar), Val Loper (bass), Ted Feldman (guitar), and TJ Orscher (drums). There is not…

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears-Come to My Party

Well, hello Friday! Let the Christmas parties begin! YAY! “Come to My Party” will play loud while I gussy up and get ready to go to the first Christmas party of the season. It just sets the mood for a much anticipated gathering with dear friends and the happy possibility of meeting  new friends. I…

Direwolf-Goodbye

I just spent two days and many frantic clicks deciding on Arcade Fire tickets. They are coming to Atlanta and I have to see them. Well…. hear them, because our seats are sort of back in a large arena and the close up seats were way too expensive for us. So frustrating! I love that…
