The first time I heard The 1975 on AltNation, it was their song Chocolate. I thought it was a catchy song in the beginning, but it really wasn't one that I liked all that much - or so I thought.... Continue reading

Last night, my blog host provider experienced a Denial of Service attack. This week's Souncheck on Bunbury is coming to you just a little late - but still is just as good. We'll be back to the regularly scheduled programming... Continue reading

I have had the song "Aviation High" by Semi Precious Weapons stuck in my head for a good chunk of the week. I've been streaming their EP at every opportunity I can, and tonight caught myself dancing around the kitchen... Continue reading

This week, for one of the (unofficial) Bunbury soundcheck bands, I decided to go a little closer to home, and a little less-known, along with a longer and more well-known band that's been around for a few years, but it... Continue reading

THUMPERS is a group from England with a catchy and upbeat sound that fits the modern indie "sound" perfectly. I will be the first to admit that both me and Allen thought they sounded a lot like Walk the Moon... Continue reading

It's that time again: the (unofficial) Bunbury Soundcheck! This week I've got two bands on the agenda: Hunter Hunted and Lily & Madeleine. One is upbeat indie pop. The other? Folksy and enchanting. Both are impressive. Hunter Hunted is definitely... Continue reading

There is nothing quite like a catchy song - one you find yourself humming while cooking dinner, singing while getting ready for work, and dancing to that catchy song that you just cannot get out of your head. Then? When... Continue reading

Today was Opening Day 2014. A really really big day in the Reds Nation. I was not a baseball fan when we first moved to Cincinnati seven years ago, and somehow ended up having a baseball and Reds-themed wedding. This... Continue reading

Today I wanted some scrambled eggs in a serious way. Normally I make cheesy scrambled eggs, and I will be the first to admit: I am terrible at making scrambled eggs - with or without cheese. Normally my cheesy eggs... Continue reading

After a particularly brutal winter, it sometimes feels like spring is taking its time to get here. This is especially true when our temperatures go from sixty degrees one day, to under forty with snow the next. It can be... Continue reading

This week for the Bunbury Festival soundcheck, I want to look at two bands that I've had on repeat for a couple days: The Orwells and Brick + Mortar. They're both bands that after listening to a few of their... Continue reading

I am totally that girl who goes into a coffee shop and orders a drink "skim" or "skinny." I've been ording my espresso drinks this way since I got my first taste of latte. Well, mostly. If a coffee shop... Continue reading

Lately, I've been busy. Except, I don't think I really have been that busy. I just feel that way. Oddly enough, this occurred to me today when reading a couple of the Open Threads on A Practical Wedding: Avoiding Burnout... Continue reading

The first time I heard Broods' first radio single "Bridges," I almost stopped in my tracks. The sounds within the song are ones I haven't heard on the radio in what feels like years. I knew right then I had... Continue reading

Today marks the beginning of a new series I'll be running now through the weekend of the Bunbury Festival in July. With at least 80 bands coming to town, there is quite a bit of music to get familiarized with!... Continue reading

Good afternoon! I've decided to go live with my new blog design today, though it's not entirely finished. To match my random blogging goals and changes in how I blog, I thought a minor update was needed! I hope you... Continue reading

I discovered Big Data (the band) when I first heard their song "Dangerous." It's a powerful alt-electronic song with the absolute best bass line I have ever heard. The song is decently catchy, bordering on an ear worm, but stands... Continue reading

I am a photographer by nature and by trade, and it never ceases to surprise me just how many pictures I take in a week. I realized recently that while I have many Instagram followers, not all of my friends... Continue reading

This week, I want to focus on the band Bear Hands. They are another alt-rock band that I've recently fallen for, in part due to their catchy single "Giants." Their most recent album was released mid-February and is called "Distraction."... Continue reading

This past weekend was a bit of a whirlwind, but an AMAZING one. We took a long weekend to head to Louisville for a night to see Arcade Fire perform at the Yum! Center. This weekend was in the works... Continue reading

This week, I asked Allen to suggest a band to share, and he brought up Broken Bells, an indie rock band. Why Broken Bells? Well, because it's made up of James Mercer, who is the lead singer of the Shins,... Continue reading

Life has been a little hectic lately. I don't really have anything to complain about, except I would like a little more sleep, and a lot less snow. I am just really tired of snow. The first couple times it... Continue reading
