Discovering Music...

I love music. I always seem to have something running in my head. Sometimes I imagine that this is the soundtrack of my life - like if I was in a movie. Wouldn't that be cool? Okay, most days, not so much, but I do really enjoy music.

I get excited when I find a new band to listen to. I don't care if they are "current" or whatever, just new to me. NPR radio shows have helped me discover so many bands I would never have come across otherwise.

Today, it was Midlake, a band out of Texas. I love, love, love them. There are releasing a new album at the beginning of next month and I have it pre-ordered on iTunes already. I'm in the process of downloading their last album - Trials of Van Occupanther. Check them out on iTunes or Myspace.

Their sound is described as psychedelic folk in one of the reviews I saw - which would have scared me a bit, if I hadn't already heard a preview of them on the radio. It's fabulous.

I like to be diverse in my musical selection, but I definitely have a tendency to focus on a genre or particular type of sound for a while before moving on to something and then integrating whatever I find into my collection.

These guys fit right in with what I've been jamming to lately. Iron and Wine, Peter, Bjorn and John, Rob Thomas, Josh Groban, Pearl Jam, Gin Blossoms, to name a few. Maybe those don't really all fit together but in my world they do.

I can't wait until the whole thing is downloaded and I really start listening to them.

So what's on your playlist at the moment???

Nothing better than music. I can't help but play Dave Matthews all day long.

I love Dave Matthews! Under the Table and Dreaming was one of the first two cds that I bought when I first left home.

Listening to that album reminds me of unpacking in my new apartment and setting up my first place away from home. I love those memories!
