I have been in a music rut for quite a long time. Seriously, I could sing EVERY song from EVERY Rilo Kiley album in my sleep. I used to be on the pulse of what was happening in my niche of music. I used to go to so many shows and research so many new bands that were up and coming. I used to scour the record store for something new that might pique my interest. Time went on and I got busy and distracted...I discovered bands that I loved about a year too late...I'm talking about you Best Coast...I missed every show that I would have loved to see, including a Jenny & Johnny show (oh, the shame). But, I am now assured that I am getting back into the swing of things. Not only have I bought tickets to 2 concerts in the next month and a half, but I have also discovered some bands that I really like. Here are some bands old and new that are now gracing my iPod playlists: The Living Sisters, "Love to Live"- Ada Louise and I listen to this every morning during breakfast....and I sing my lungs out while Ada stares at me wondering why she has the worlds weirdest mom. The Mynabirds, "What We Lose in the Fire We Gain in the Flood"- Great Saddle Creek band. The Head and the Heart, self-titled- This could be totally dated, but I really like them. Mates of State, "Mountaintops" - Discovered them in college and still love them now. The new album is so fun! Love "Palomino" and "Maracas. "
