more bunny.

awesome, awesome, awesome album.

been better

good things are happening in 2012.

another album to keep a look out for - heartless bastards, arrow is set for release this valentine's day.

check out their single, "parted ways."

"i need a little bit of whiskey and a little bit of time to ease my troubled mind. lost for the loneliness, so many things have changed. i just don't look at things the same way now, since we parted ways."

moo goo gai pan..

john mccauley and robbie crowell (deer tick), ian saint pé (black lips), hardy morris (dead confederate), bryan dufresne (six finger satelitte), AND steve berlin (los lobos) have teamed up to form the DIAMOND RUGS!

it's no secret that i love everything and anything deer tick.. but this band is making some pretty awesome music. check out john singing diamond rugs' song "christmas in a chinese restaurant" and then be sure to pick up their self-titled debut album in the spring.


spending the next few days packing and moving (blah). always a forward thinker, i hate to revisit my past BUT i have enjoyed going through boxes of old music. this song seemed relevant today...

snow day!

coachella 2012!

if you haven't already heard.. the lineup for coachella this year is pretty amazing.

but since i won't be going, i figured i'd blog about how amazing the lineup actually is in hopes some of you are planning to go!

if you are, be sure to check out all or some: cat power, girls, m.ward, dawes, sheepdogs, bon iver, feist, st.vincent, laura marling, we are augustines, florence and the machine, wild flag, real estate, santigold, first aid kit and lissie!

dani and lizzy!

my friends over at photophonic media directed and produced a music video for vancouver based singers/rappers dani and lizzy and i helped out! it was a lot of fun to be apart of (clearly - i'm laughing like a hyena and fist pumping) and see the whole thing come together.

check it out!

chasing after you

murder to excellence

all my favorite things.

hovering over yourself

spin's album of the year!


fucked up, david comes to life! no suprise there. it's without doubt my favorite album of the year, and along with deer tick's divine providence, one album i couldn't seem to shut up about. can you blame me?

anyway, get your reading on and pick up spin's best of issue - there's a great article on fucked up which talks about the rumors of a possible definite hiatus, but it kinda leaves you thinking they're not done yet.. naw.

new year, new music.

better late than never... HAPPY NEW YEAR!
