Mmmmmonday. For the first and last time in my life (most likely) I have this weird lull inbetween being laid off and working again. Sure, I have the part-time radio job but even that feels like a vacation at 24 hours a week compared to the 60+ I have been working. I decided that I am only going to work 5 hours today, then I am going to browse the mall with a friend as a form of self torture, eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich and then sit in a bar until all hours of the night drinking water (seriously) and talking about life and the crazy adventure it takes you on. Needless to say I am in a nostalgic mood and these two bands proved to be the perfect soundtrack for how I hope the day will go, simplistic and easily entertaining.
Henry Wolfe hails from LA and plays songs that are described as folk but what I would honestly descibe as “bippity-boppity”. Yes, that’s a technical term. It means when one is immensly enjoying a song and starts to bop delightfully up and down while in a sitting position. It’s yummy. Also, this video is fucking adorable… well, ya know… until the inevitable.
Hey Rosetta! have been described as the next Arcade Fire… I don’t know that I would go THAT far as predicting someone’s eventual Grammy, but they are fucking lovely and might just take a whack at making my favorites from this whole SxSW endeavour.
