On Sundays I reflect on bands whose music I enjoyed last week.
Maybe this can help your music discovery?

What’s exciting in the new releases today?
Well, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs album “Mosquito”! of course. But, can I be shallow? I don’t like the album cover. At all. But, I’m not sure what I expect. They are a wild bunch, and I’m just a codger. The music was good, as usual from Karen O and crew.
I also liked what I heard of the new Fall Out Boy’s album “Save Rock and Roll”. If you like Panic at the Disco, you already know Fall Out Boy.
I’m interested in the new Jane Monheit recording (Jazz Vocalist). We’ve seen her at a club a couple years back. Amazing singer.
There’s a bunch of other good stuff that I haven’t made it through yet (Spotify rocks).
– Carla Bruni, if you like listening to a chanteuse (I do sometimes)
– Iron & Wine, I need to listen again to a few songs. They didn’t really catch me first time around. He’s usually awesome.
– I have about 15-20 more artists in my new music playlist. Everything from Willie Nelson & Steve Earle to The Flaming Lips & Major Lazer.
Here’s a similar post from a fellow new music lover: Check it!
Ugh. Chapter six was uncomfortable in a bad way. I know the MC is supposed to be left of center, but I’m not so sure about him right now. This is the way the story is supposed to go, but…
Anyway, on to chapter seven. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Crystal Castles have been great soundtracks to the writing today.
I need to leave the writing cave and get some fresh air. My writer’s group meets tomorrow. I’m hoping to finish off Chapter 7 before bed tonight, and 8 before I go to group. Ambition unwraps itself.
