Happy Friday everyone! Today is my friend Shelly’s birthday so I just want to shout out – Happy Birthday!! We have known each other since 3rd grade and actually hang out almost every week. Very nice. 🙂 She even takes some of my book recommendations these days – woo hoo!
Anyway, that out of the way I just wanted to share that I have been obsessed with two different albums (what do you call CDs/albums/releases these days?!). Anyway, both of these are fairly recent, have a ton of hooks and I have no idea what the lyrics are about, but they are fun to try to figure out. 🙂
Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City in particular ‘Step’ It is a little slow, but the lyrics have been talking to me lately.
AND I have been completely obsessed with Alt-J’s first album An Awesome Wave. I had to break up listening to them with Vampire Weekend. The one I love right now is Fitzpleasure, though I just watched this video for the first time and it kind of changed the song for me. WEIRD! I would say, listen to the music, then if you are curious watch the video with the music. They made it about as bizarre and ookey as possible. I was envisioning strippers or some seedy nightclub. They took it to the streets with people bending the wrong way. Ick.
What are you listening to these days? Let me know, I need a new band to keep me motivated at work (doing data clean up which is boring and I can blast a bit of music to keep me going.) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
