MusicSong of the Day: Misread by Kings of Convenience!

I hopped on my bike today and rode to work with my iPhone on shuffle. Since the whole shuffle phenomenon came into my life I have become consistently attachment to some type of music playing device (be it an ipod or an iphone) I have found new music every day that I already have!

Now today Kings of Convenience came on with Misread which lulled me into a cycling trance and before I knew it I was already at work.

Kings of Convenience are an indie duo made up of Erlend Øye and Eirik Glambek Bøe from Bergen, Norway.

Here is the nerve calming and emotion sensitive song with its pretty video to go along.

MusicMusic for Your DAY with VAMPIRE WEEKEND!!

OK guys I’ve been listening to too much Pandora lately and haven’t gotten any good music for you to listen to in a while BUT VAMPIRE WEEKEND took my attention today!

So gooooo and listen and keep listening to them because they are great and fun and will keep you on your feet with a smile all day long.

And another song for your listening pleasure is “Cousins” by Vampire Weekend!

MusicWe’re Lovin’ Demetri Martin’s “Important Things!”

If you haven’t caught Comedy Central’s Important Things With Demetri Martin, then you’ve been missing out on some serious laughs.

From law school drop out to popular comedian, Demetri Martin is well known for his stand up routine Demetri Martin. Person and his recent film, Taking Woodstock.

Now, with the launch of Important Things in 2009, Demetri has become a weekly staple in living rooms across the country.


The show features various sketches and skits in which Demetri puts on different personas. With his diagrams, drawings, guitar solos and spins on the ordinary, Demetri’s style definitely appeals to those with a quirky sense of humor.

Check out the clip above and catch the show on Comedy Central!

MusicGet Through Your Day With: DAYDREAMING by Kid Sister!!

Kid Sister is a fashionable diva whose song Daydreaming is perfect for killing thoose mid-week blues!

I enjoyed watching her adorable self in this adorable video this morning, and it’s already made my “I wish it was Friday” blues go away. I love her bright clothes, her long colored nails, and her super soft pink makeup in this video.

I recommend watching and going for a stroll downtown to get a treat on your lunch break or after work while listening to this song on your iPod!

ArtMusic + ART = Go DO by Jónsi

I was perusing some music blogs the other day when I happened upon a music video that literally transported me to another world. The song that captured me was Go DO by Jónsi of Sigur Rós.

If you don’t know or aren’t familiar with Sigur Rós then I recommend checking them out but keep in mind they aren’t for the faint of heart. However, I believe the video for the single Go DO from the album Go is a masterpiece of artistic vision in which theater, performance, and opera are combined to create an otherworldly experience as you watch and listen to this video.

59 Productions, who produced the operatic theatre inspired performances done for the Jónsi his new tour described it as:

“Band members arrive onstage in the gloom of night. Owls fly and wolves chase deer, leading us into the next song as floodlights reveal the remains of a ruined house cradled in the heart of a forest. And Jonsi himself, dressed all in white and wrapped in coloured rags, backlit by the perfectly timed footlights fanning out, flowerlike. Whistles and wolf call sound effects echo the effect of a gently decaying house, something warm and bright unfurling in your belly as you become more absorbed in the show.”
