The Beautiful South - We Are Each Other

Another blast from the past post. And my second of the day because I woke up way too early this morning and now have a new song in my head and on repeat in my home.

A band called We Are Each Other is opening up for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros tomorrow night. I don't know their music, but I immediately recalled this song of the same name, by The Beautiful South.

Sleepy Sun "Open Eyes"

Well it's been waaaaay too long since my last post and for that, I am truly sorry. In order to make it up to you, I have posted a song from a fantastic band called Sleepy Sun. The video is very well done and the song is outstanding. I hope you like it.

David Bowie - Hang Onto Yourself

Grace Cathedral Park- Red House Painters

How Much Are They- Jah Wobble

Teenage Fanclub - What You Do to Me

Saged just reminded me of this gem of a band. Not familiar with a lot of their music, but this album was on heavy rotation during high school, especially this song. Teenage love, angst. Teenage Fanclub.
