ALL WHO WANDER [feat: The Bronze Medal + Oscar & the Wolf]

ALL WHO WANDER [feat: The Bronze Medal + Oscar & the Wolf]

Hello, my sweets. Are you still there? The silence in this room is deafening, I know. I’ve been negligent and I’m bored with making excuses. Am I busy? Truly, I am. I have traveled over 4,000 miles by car and another 1,500 miles by air in the past two months alone. Hello, Summer 2014. You’re looking […]

Joy Williams [does] Duran Duran — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 17)

Joy Williams [does] Duran Duran — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 17)

Cover songs are often a controversial topic among music lovers. I see both sides of the topic, but I myself am very PRO-cover. Inspiration is found in nature, in a kind word, in a thoughtfully penned poem, in the laughter of children. Different things inspire different people at different times, but I think music is […]

Post SXSW 2014 | the official wrap-up

Post SXSW 2014 | the official wrap-up

It’s been more than a month now since South-by came and went, I guess it’s about time I told y’all about it. Yes? In my pre-game post I shared 30 bands I was hoping to see at the annual South by Southwest festivities; it’s always kind of a coin toss as to which bands you actually […]

Kishi Bashi [does] Talking Heads — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 16)

Kishi Bashi [does] Talking Heads — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 16)

I had this great idea to do a cover series post featuring a handful of bands that we saw at SXSW, similar to the one I did last year in honor of my musical adventures in LA, but as I’m still struggling with putting together the official line-up from this year’s SX extravaganza, I think […]

South by Southwest | 2014

South by Southwest | 2014

This is one of those “better late than never” posts, right? I know I’m cutting it close, but as the music week of South by Southwest hasn’t begun yet – I think I’m okay. Here’s my list of bands I’m going to attempt to see this year. It’s always chaos trying to coordinate your “must-sees” with […]

March Ramblings & Nathaniel Rateliff

March Ramblings & Nathaniel Rateliff

Ahhh… it’s March in Austin, Texas. Do you know what that means? It means South by Southwest is right around the corner. I’m trying to work up a little post featuring some of the artists I’m excited to see this year — but in truth I can’t focus. I know the silence in these pages […]

Kina Grannis [does] The Neighbourhood — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 15)

Kina Grannis [does] The Neighbourhood — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 15)

I couldn’t decide which of Kina’s covers to share with you. A good friend recently tipped me off to her cover of Lorde’s, “Team”. He knew I was already smitten with that tune and Kina’s version was, indeed, sensational. But then I listened to her cover of The Neighbourhood’s, “Sweater Weather”. Well, hell. Seriously?! The tug-of-war […]

Favorite Finds of 2013

Favorite Finds of 2013

The drum roll has long faded, the fireworks are gone, too. 2014 is well underway. Let’s invent a new phrase for time flies, shall we? It’s absurdly overused. Time sneaks by me on tip toes. Time fakes right while I’m looking left. Time is like a delightful breeze racing across my skin – a quick stroke, a […]

The Mighty Oaks [cover] Rihanna — MIMFL Cover Songs (Vol. 14)

This post may or may not be a stall tactic. You see, it’s 13 days into the new year and I still haven’t posted my Favorite Finds of 2013. I know y’all are waiting with great anticipation. [wink] If you keep up over at my facebook page I’ve dropped a few spoiler alerts. It IS […]

Burn Me Baby — LLOYD YATES

Burn Me Baby — LLOYD YATES

When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable.  ― Henry David Thoreau Thoreau’s words come to mind when I listen to Lloyd Yates’s 5 song E.P, Bring Back the Life. I don’t typically “fear danger”, but I have been feeling a lot of unrest lately. It’s not exactly bad, but it’s not good, […]
