Some how Paper Route is the band that always releases the album I need right when I need it. There is no denying their talent and I think that each album is a testament unto itself but I can't deny that part of my absolute adoration of their music has... Continue reading

I first heard of Bear's Den back in early 2013 when a friend over in the UK sent me their Agape EP and it was love at first listen. I saw them later that year when they opened for Daughter (old post HERE) and they didn't disappoint. I'm a sucker... Continue reading

Well they're back at it again and this year's summer mash-up is just as awesome as last year's! Although last year's video was shared and viewed thousands of times for some reason there seems to be very limited information on who these ladies are. After some digging lat year I... Continue reading

So after seeing so much buzz about the "A Color Story" app on Instagram I decided to download it and check it out. Some of you may know that Enlight is my go to photo editing app and I thought I would highlight some of the key pros/cons for each... Continue reading

I don't normally post this sort of thing here so I added it to BuzzFeed... I had a StarWars theory (warning: The Force Awakens spoilers included) that apparently no one else had shared about so at the encouragement of a friend I wrote a piece about it. Enjoy! Click HERE... Continue reading

Does anyone think I missed any great albums of 2015?

I've heard it said that 2015 is "the year that pop grew up" and I couldn't agree more. Justin, Demi, Salina, Jonas, 1D, etc... I've been so into it this year that I almost feel like my depth as a consumer of music has shallowed out. But I know so... Continue reading

Gabrielle Aplin first caught my attention in 2011 when I stumbled across an acoustic performance video of "Home" from her debut EP when she was only 19 years old. Now at 23 she is really starting to turn heads. If you're not familiar with her previous work I would recommend... Continue reading

These days when you go see local music you can probably guess what sort of musician you'll see. All too often there is very little variation in the look, the sound, the lyrical subject matter. So you may understand how refreshing it was to come across something different. Last Saturday... Continue reading

Since so many people have been asking I've done some research and these ladies are Lucie, Élisa and Juliette who have formed a french group that go by L.E.J. they have this song "Summer 2015" and their song from last year "Summer 2014" available on iTunes. These Girls Are So... Continue reading

I first heard of Celia Pavey by stubmling upon her YouTube channel when I was looking for good covers songs (her version of Feel Good, Inc. is fantastic by the way) and I was delighted to find that she has recently released her first EP of original songs. Celia's voice... Continue reading

I don't know what it has been with me and EP's lately but there are so many new artists I'm psyched about and most of them have yet to release LP's. So to add to the ever growing list of EP's I'm wild about I wanted to let you know... Continue reading

As I was creating my suggestion list for my good friend Paul over at Vino & Vinyl's first in store vinyl order it occurred to me that some of my favorite recent finds haven't yet released full albums... so if you want to get as excited for the rest of... Continue reading

I can't stop talking about this album... seriously, ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you how I've been cramming this ablum down their eardrums for weeks and I'm showing NO. SIGNS. OF. LEAVING. OFF. Betty Who is the stage name for Jessica Anne Newham, an Australian singer-songwriter who... Continue reading

The other day I was on my way to work and was feeling too indecisive to pick something from my ipod/iphone/Spotify to listen to. To make matters more difficult I was already driving and didn’t want to be so dangerous as to go through my CD’s and the one already... Continue reading

This just might be my most anticipated post of the year... anticipated by me that is. I've got no clue what you guys want. If you're a Spotify user then you can check out your year in music. And mine certainly showed that this was the year of pop music... Continue reading

So many wonderful musical things have happened since I last posted here. It's tempting to try and capture them all but I'll spare you that and belatedly let you know that I'm not doing Musical Advent this year... mostly because it's already the 11th and there just isn't enough new...

Greetings from Houston on this first day of fall weather! Today is the day that all Texans will now instagram pictures of themselves sipping coffee on their back porches and saying, "It may be miserably hot 9 months of the year here but for the next few months feel free... Continue reading

Just a few weeks ago I was telling my brother Dillon about how much I love the songs on Manchester Orchestra's latest album "COPE" but that I really just didn't enjoy listening to the album due to the poor quality of the recording. This was on purpose of course... the... Continue reading

Ryan Adams is one of those artists that has gained my loyalty over the years. He's fairly well known between soundtrack features and the longevity of his career thus far, so I won't bore you with who he is and where he's from... if you want to know just take... Continue reading

There are a lot of misconceptions about introverts... and there are a lot of legitimately standard things about introverts that don't apply to each one of us. For example, many people are shocked to find that I'm an introvert because I'm "not shy at all!" Well as it happens introversion... Continue reading
