South-By-Southwest 2009

I was in Austin for a total of 91 hours and only 14 of those hours were wasted on sleep. It was South-by-Southwest weekend, the annual conference showcasing hundreds of bands that travel to Texas from all around the world. It takes an entire year of volunteer preparation for the culmination of events that take […]

“Lille” by Lisa Hannigan

So, I thought a little tune by and Irish singer-songwriter would be nice for St. Patrick’s Day! This is a single by Lisa Hannigan taken from her solo debut, Sea Sew released on February 3, 2009 in the US.

Kimberly M’Carver at Anderson Fair

On Tuesday, March 10th KUHF, the public news and arts NPR affiliated station of the University of Houston, welcomed folk singer/songwriter and native Texan, Kimberly M’Carver. I had a generous invitation to view the live broadcast of the featuring program, The Front Row. After her on-air performance I decided to attend the follow-up show at […]

“Untouched” by The Veronicas

I was looking for the video for “My Cabal” by The School of Seven Bells and I came across this video by The Veronicas.

So, they’re twins right? Twins cryin’ about not getting the attention they desire.

Rock Legend Autobiographies

Duffy “Rain on Your Parade”

If you haven’t seen it yet here’s the first single from Duffy’s deluxe edition of Rockferry. She wanted to copy Beyonce but let everyone else do the dancing. Just kidding. I like it. Especially the silhouetted shots of the drummer. I don’t know why but, for some reason, that is […]

Fleet Foxes

“Mykonos” is the third single from folk band Fleet Foxes, off of their 2008 EP, Sun Giant. However, I bought their full-length self-titled album in LP format, therefore, I own this track as it was part of the delux edition.

This music video, to me, is boring. I get it. The two little blue […]
