Hands in the Snow

"And I watch you drink invisible ink... so I won't know when you swallow your words."

I listen a little bit to a band called "Saturday Looks Good to Me" which is a group that technically wasn't supposed to exist.
(Read more here if you care too:
I have recently realized that I mainly listen to them for one of their vocalists: Betty Marie Barnes. I love her voice for reasons I cannot explain.
Listen to her shine on the SLGtM* track "Hands in the Snow". I've been listening to and marveling at this song constantly for the past week!

*I'm sure you can figure this out. It gets tiresome to write long band names! :P

Sunday Morning

"Lots of time with nothing to do, lots of time to spend with you -- on Sunday morning."

Since it's Sunday I decided to be lame and post my favourite song about Sunday! [hehe] Which would be Margo Guryan's "Sunday Morning".
Though I must say I do not experience Sunday mornings like she describes because often I am at church... but it's a nice thought! ;)

~~If you have never heard of Margo Guryan, please read this and educate yourself! ~~

Silent O Moyle

"When shall Heav'n, its sweet bell ringing, call my spirit from this stormy world?"

I have been overwhelmed by noise today. Not because it's been particularly noisier than usual, I just am feeling very aware of the sounds around me. (Maybe it has to do with my semi-sleeplessness last night...)
I was so on edge I even started typing words like "quiet" and "silent" into my itunes library search to see what songs would come up.
Méav Ní Mhaolchatha's "Silent O Moyle" came up so I listened to it, remembered how much I loved it, and decided to post it.
The lyrics are based off the legend "Children of Lir". This song is the lament of Lir's daughter, Fionnula, who was turned into a swan by her father's wicked second wife. She is in a 300 year exile on the Straits of Moyle.

"Music is my lover... and lovers are music."

I recently discovered this French singer, Daphné, and sadly I can't find much of her music... But the little I've found I've enjoyed immensly! I'm too tired to ramble right now so I'll let the music video for her song "Musicamor" tell you how wonderful she is. ;)

Dark Halls

Well, it's a rainy, grey Monday today! I am resisting the urge to post the Carpenters' "Rainy Days and Mondays" (which is how I feel right now) in favour of something happier: Au Revoir Simone's "Dark Halls"!

Yes, it's called Dark Halls... but it doesn't sound very dark. Give it a listen! No one does the genre "dreamy electronic pop" better than Au Revoir Simone!

Human Like a House

"Sold my shoes to pay the rent, I won't be needing them... I won't be leaving too soon."

The Finches album Human Like a House is my favourite album at the moment. With its whimsical lyrics, melodies I find myself constantly humming, and the unique, beautiful voice of Carolynne Pennypacker Riggs, it's a classic. Listening to the album is like visiting the town where you grew up and visiting your childhood haunts where you were happiest.

Listen to the title track 'Human Like a House':

Linda Perhacs

It seems only right that my first post should be Linda Perhacs: one of the most brilliant songwriters to ever walk this earth. She only released one album which is one of the greatest tragedies of our time. Her album "Parallelograms" is psychedelic-folk like you've never heard it before! It sadly sunk into obscurity shortly after it's release... but years afterwards it was rediscovered! {Read more about it here:}

Listen to one of my favourite tracks off the album: Chimacum Rain!

An Introduction

Music.... It's one of the most important things in my life.
I love to talk about the music I like.
The problem is most people don't want to hear about it. ;)
I started this blog to share and talk about the music I love.
It doesn't matter if no one's reading, I enjoy rambling!
{let the ramblings commence!}
