Okay, I'm just going to say it straight up: This topic is entirely self-serving as I just broke up with my girlfriend and want new music that doesn't remind me at all of her to soothe my soul for the next little while as I'm a bit of an audiophile and shared everything I know with this person and now I'm left with nothing and am just sitting here wishing I could listen to music to get this girl off of my mind but I can't because it all reminds me of her now and this is all really cliche so I thought I'd express this opening in a bit of a Faulkner-esque stream of consciousness- type fashion to mask the fact and keep people from making fun of me. BUT! In my self-serving, I'd might as well open up new avenues for others. So, my contribution: ~The Walkmen: TBH I have no idea how popular these guys actually are. When I saw them in concert there were a lot of hipsters around, but I think they were all there for Beach House. They're most known for "The Rat," but I like the mellower, lighter side that they've been turning towards in recent years. Songs to check out: In The New Year, Four Provinces, Angela Surf City, Blue As Your Blood, The House You Made (current favorite) ~The Mollies: So I mentioned them before ages ago...local band, and the singer has the voice of an angel. She's also in a band called Late Night Alumni which is apparently more popular, but I'm sticking with The Mollies. Very folky, dare I say "girly"...but if everyone loves K-pop, I can love this. Songs to check out: Fly Me To The Moon, Star Bits, DOOM, Fancies Are Fiends ~Puggy: A French band with a British vocalist. Actually very good...I heard about it from a kid who was going to their concert. I'm glad I bothered to jot the name down! Songs to check out: Dubois, When You Know, We Have It Made ... Oh, and hi, guys! It's been a little while! How's life?
