Angsty Music From The Districts On "Peaches"

I have been lady gaga over this song since I first heard it on the CMJ compilation a few months back. The Districts had not previously been on my radar, but once again, the College Music Journal crew hipped me to something I will forever love. What I love most is the angst in the... Read more »

Listening To "Crystal Falls," & The Latest Josh Rouse LP

Josh Rouse returns with another great album, The Embers of Time. But the song you have to hear right now is “Crystal Falls.” I love the keys, the upbeat drums, and that groovy harmonica that drags you in.

Houndmouth’s single “Sedona” has haunted me for weeks. It’s the slow and steady build of the verse, that gives one the feeling of traveling. I assume we are going to California because of the lyrics.

I love watches. They don’t have to be the really expensive kind that James Bond or Jay-Z wear either. I’m kind of addicted to what Diesel has been doing for awhile now. They just came out with this new line of denim arm candy, and I’m chomping at the bit to get my hands on... Read more »
