Meg Myers-Make a Shadow

Today seems like Sunday, but happily, it is only Saturday. It has been a slow, calm day compared to the furious intensity of The Fourth of July. A napping in the sun day is a nice luxury and joyfully welcomed. But, after hearing this tune, I must get going. Meg Myers is a fierce femme…

Incan Abraham-Tuolumne

A happy accident…..That is an oxymoron, right? Accidents usually happen and everyone freaks out that it is not supposed to be happening. Bad, bad, bad. Well, the happy accident of finding this band has helped me find some solace in the universe for today. Good, good, good. Accidents can actually be pleasant and meaningful. The…

Wild Child/Shakey Graves-Live and Up Close

So, I enjoy music. It breathes life into my existence and brings joy to my soul. Yes, you say, you would do the same if you could afford to stop your real job to travel and listen to bands…..well I can’t always afford it, but I find my crazy ways. I see a lot of…

Conor Oberst-Double Life

I am a small town girl. I admit it wholeheartedly, but I have found myself in the heart of a giant city. I have been here long enough to… well honestly, know better. Yes, there is no doubt that in this big city I have fantastic opportunities, wonderful people that I love, and amazing experiences…

Years & Years-Real

Okay, the weekend is arriving soon and it is time to push back the furniture and start a dance party. Yes, I am all about alternative/indie music, but sometimes it is time to cut loose a little. I stumbled upon Years & Years by accident, because I don’t really listen to their genre, electronic/pop. Years…

Tomy Lobo-Modern Man’s Gone

Twitter. I am still trying to figure you out, but there are wonderful moments in between the thousands of random casual comments. I love it when I get a new follower on twitter and they have a band with great music. I always try to listen. Case in point, is the indie/rock band, Tomy Lobo….

Elim Bolt-Dingy

A yummy lunch on the porch of a beautifully aged historical Charleston “single” house delivered this fun song. I know it seems odd,  but amazingly, good music sometimes magically appears. This dining experience puts a hefty stamp on and confirms my love of alternative music, the hopeful newbie band, and the exciting opportunity to meet…

Totoake-Make It Work (Demo)

Twangy guitar, hazy fuzz distortion, and “ooh baby” choruses all remind me that summertime is just around the corner. Yes….finally. The sun will once again shine warmly and soothe the cold frosty memories of a brutally harsh winter. Okay, harsh for Atlanta. I can’t really even complain when compared to the northeast or the midwest….

Hooray for Earth-Keys

Mood Monday. Bold, distorted, and futuristic, this song caught my attention right away. “Keys” is a new track release from Hooray for Earth, an indie-rock band out of New York City. I am drawn to the giant symbol smash that shows up between a steady beat, pounding synth, and blasts of screeching distorted guitar. Even…

Saint Raymond-Young Blood/The River

Welcome back sing songy, summer tunes! I have been listening to Saint Raymond off and on all week. The lyrics, the jumping beat, and the fact that this young fellow just turned 19 is amazing to me. Saint Raymond’s self-penned songs have a perfect combination of lyrical young love, instrumental savvy, and catchy pop appreciation….
