Happiness

So maybe we’re all “so over” music videos. Remember when you used to watch them after school? The countdowns? Oh the excitement we once held so deep in our hearts for MTV and MuchMusic. It’s still there. But for the most part if I want to see a music video I scope it out on youtube. I thoroughly enjoy Deerhunter‘s helicopter. And look! There is a video! I seem to enjoy strange things and images…which this video seems to contain.

Something that I came across the other day was this little treat. I love Panda Bear so much, I can’t really explain. Something about the music seems to make me happy. I could listen all day. Also there is something nostalgic about the sound.

I reccomend you make this full screen while you watch. Anything else you choose to partake in during this experience is your own doing…

Hope you enjoyed it!

Record Store Day!

What are you going to buy today?

I’ve had a few records on my mind that I wouldn’t mind adding to my growing collection.

Decisions, decisions…

I’m sure I’ll run into a few others…sifting through vinyl always gets my blood pumping.

And new music does too! Recent excitement from Panda Bear, and of course there’s plenty of reverb overload. Something I can never get enough of. Now that I think of it, Person Pitch is definitely on my list of potential buys. There’s so much to choose from!

Track one on the new album is currently getting to me. But I’m digging every ounce.

Also, I’m kind of in awe of Tv on the Radio. Blowing my mind since the start. I still remember hearing “Staring at the Sun” and having my heart melt into a puddle on my bedroom floor. I don’t even remember how it happened. But it was beautiful. And I’ve been craving a live show ever since the age of 15. The love goes on. and on. aaaaand on with Nine Types of Light!

I know I should be studying instead of blogging and thinking about what records I’m going to buy later today. But I just CAN’T! My parents are on their way as we speak to come pick up my sister. So…fam-jam Ottawa adventures ahead. Hopefully I get over my sleepy spell…I stayed up late dancing. It seems as though I’m celebrating before my final exam. I guess it feels like it’s over. BUT IT IS NOT! Tuesday afternoon, then release.

Until then, mellow tunes, records, Pub Italia, and…studying I guess. The library has been a good friend as of late. I miss going to coffee shops to relax and read a book. Currently, it includes sipping coffee while staring continuously at a computer screen. Can’t wait to delve into a new summer reading list.

Happy Record Store Day!
