Yesterday started out with a mauled dead cat from a coyote on the lawn (not mine), traffic and ended 12 hours later when I finally got home from the office. Yuck!

Today is shaping up to be a much better day to say the least. My last weekend of the summer is beginning and I am planning to enjoy it to the fullest. Beach, drinks and the long awaited release of the new Untitled Records design. Finally making it official in hopes this will get my ass in gear to put in the work to release it this weekend.

In the mean time I have been listening to calming, relaxing folk. Allowing the summer breeze to blow through my hair and the music to fill my ears. It is a beautiful thing.

If I had it my way I would be on my way to the beach right now blasting the dreamy pop music of Real Estate. My reality? I am jumping in the shower and heading to work. Whatever you are doing today the music of Real Estate makes everything better. Enjoy!

Stroked: A Tribute To ‘This Is It’ 2011



Their fourth full length album just makes you feel good. It is upbeat and airy, a gentle mix of rock and pop that is perfect for a summer afternoon. I am all about the summer right now, just as long as it stays 75 degrees. Enjoy!


Worse For WearVetiver

The Errant Charm 2011 (Sub Pop)


It has been unbearably hot this week, my “unbearably hot” is anything over 80 degrees. How can I complain about that you may ask? Well, we have been spoiled rotten, the weather in Southern California has been beautifully mild for the summer and I dig that. I do not dig the heat however, and I turn into the Wicked Witch of the West bitch mode all the way. Last night was the worse of it, so hot that I couldn’t even sleep with a fan blowing directly on me. The cherry was the mosquito sucking my blood in 3 different spots one of them being my cheek! Well I was not having it, I jumped out of bed and flipped on the lights and hunted that mosquito like the vampire it is. Needless to say there is a tiny little stain on my wall… The mosquito and the flea are the two insects I have no problem killing, probably because they make me so uncomfortable. I have terrible reactions to bites, my flea bites are the size of a normal mosquito bite and my mosquito bites are just down right swollen and painful. Not a pretty sight.

Thank goodness tonight it is a lot cooler. There is a beautiful breeze flowing through the windows, quite pleasing. I have been listening to Skybox lately, a Chicago based band, who make groovy rock melodies mixed with just the right amount of fun pop. They are currently touring all over this nation.
