The Hills are Alive

I don't have a lot of time to discover new music anymore. During my early twenties I spent a lot of time & energy seeking out new music to listen to but now I guess you could say I'm in a comfortable rut with the maybe 25 songs I like and listen to over and over again. I'm pretty ok with that. Still, sometimes I like to have something new to hear. I've been listening to a couple of new (to me) things lately and I thought I'd share.

1. Salt & Samovar. I probably wouldn't know about this band right now had I not been in a wedding with one of its members last summer. Dane, it was nice walking up the aisle with you and thanks for telling me about your band -- I love this album. It makes me want to live in a dirt-floor cottage and wear a long skirt.

2. The Cave Singers. Ian must have discovered this because one day it was just there on my iPod and it has become an instant favorite. This also has kind of a rusty, dirty feeling for me. It also kind of spooked me when I first listened to it, in a good way.
