Whether dreamy and sweet or spunky and upbeat, you can find me head-bobbing to these five tracks at all times. So come on, forget the cleanin’ and get to dreamin’!

“Closer” – Tegan and Sara

“Entertainment” – Phoenix

“Hey Love” – Quadron

“Lunar Phobia” – No Joy

MusicListen Up! Josh Rouse’s New Album “The Happiness Waltz”

Put a little sparkle in your day with the newest album from indie-folk artist Josh Rouse. If you’re the kind of girl who puts on an album when you’re getting ready in the morning, “The Happiness Waltz” will get you going with Rouse’s soft, velvety voice, upbeat piano chords, and head-bobbing beats. Stuck in a traffic jam? Chilling out with friends? Switch on the lighthearted melodies of this Nebraska-born singer-songwriter and let the lounge-y habits and occasional seventies vibes work their magic.
