tuesday tunes.

September 8, 2009

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was fun…BUT…my dogs were sprayed by a skunk on Saturday, and we’ve spent the last two days trying to rid our dogs and house of the funky smell. UGH!!!

There’s no segue between the skunk, and tuesday tunes…I just felt the need to complain about our plight a little more!

I have a new favorite band. Again. I’m fickle, I know…but THIS band is my current 2009 favorite. And this song….is AMAZING….I couldn’t find a real video for you to see online, so I thought I’d post the only one I could find. Hope you enjoy!

What’s your favorite song so far this year?

Hi all! Hope everyone is having a great week…

My latest favorite album of the year…is by a band called Wussy. Just love it. Found this video online, and thought it was a good one. Skip to .55 seconds into the video {warning: swears} to hear the song…

I used to attempt to force my girlfriends in high school to listen to my music. It never went over very well. I tried to do the “it’s my car… listen to my music” thing, but ended up listening to Ratt or Phil Collins anyway…instead of Echo and the Bunnymen or Fear. Ah well!  tuesday tunes is just me saying “it’s my blog…listen to my music”. ha ha! Hope you like the song…

Hi everyone! For this week’s “Tuesday’s Tunes”, I thought I’d add a music-related indie shop. Well, sort-of. Moxie and Oliver make fantastic leather goods…including some really cool guitar straps. That fits in with the theme, right?! I also like their clutches and wallets and things…especially anything with those cute poppies on them!

And, as for a song…I chose my favorite Norwegian artist, Sondre Lerche…as a little ode to our exchange student from Norway who lived with us last year {2007-2008 school year}. She and her girlfriend came back to stay with us for two weeks, and just left on Sunday. I already miss her a ton. So, this one is for Hilde!

It’s an old tune, but I have yet to tire of it…hope you enjoy!

I can’t get enough of this song, “Buddy” by the band Iran. Little did I know that one of the band’s members is Kyp Malone from TV on the Radio {I’m a big, huge, crazy fan of the band, TV on the Radio}…I had no idea! Anyhow, I think the LaLa player that I’ve posted only gives you part of the song…so you can listen to the whole thing here {their MySpace page}.

What do you think? Like it? Hate it?

{ps. cute ceramics on tomorrow’s post…I’ve been busy with our exchange student visiting us, and haven’t made time to post…too busy having fun and enjoying the summer!!}

I love the internet. Here’s how I found this song {it’s a couple of years old, but I had never heard it}:

Last week I had a gal named Amanda Donaho follow me on Twitter…so I went to her site to check it out {she’s a photographer based in Ohio}. As I was perusing her great portfolio, the song, Trouble by an Ohio band, Over the Rhine came on. Usually music on a website is a bit of a peeve of mine, because it usually interferes with what I’m already playing…but I just couldn’t seem to get enough of this little tune. I haven’t listened to any more of their music…but if you like it and want to know more, here’s Over the Rhine’s website {click the little record player option on the right, and you can listen}.
