When I was a kid it seemed really easy to find good new music to listen too. Every Sunday I would tape 120 minutes on MTV, watch it the next day and then run out to the cd store and buy whatever new band I found that tickled my fancy. Anymore it is hard to find new music. I feel like I have to sift through bands to just find something really interesting. So when I do find something amazing I feel inclined to share it. I sound like a grumbly old man but being a teen in the 90s and MTV actually playing videos at that point in time it was sooo much easier to find good music. Working with high school kids I will get the occasional student with outstanding music taste that will introduce me to really good current bands but that seems to be rare anymore. I get annoyed when they don't even know who David Bowie is. Oh well. I guess that is why we have David Bowie Fridays in my classroom.
On to my new and exciting music!
Grizzly Bear. My husband introduced me to this band. I can't get enough of them. They really grow on you and are perfect for the mellow sleepy fall weather.
Ida Maria. A good friend of our played this for us the other night. I was surprised because usually he listens to hard core screamfest music. I also can't help but love her awkward accent and raspy voice.
Fleet Foxes. A student played this band for me at the end of last school year. It is dreamy and nostalgic.
