My Top Artists of the Week (Aug 18 - 24)

(via my

Ah, She & Him reign supreme! I was a bit lazy last week, though. I didn't listen to anything new and most of the week I played my iPod on shuffle. I spent a lot of last week tired due to Jesse being back in town*, and so my commutes (aka music-listening time) were spent taking naps. I put my iPod on shuffle and skipped anything I didn't know the words to. Ha.

This week I've been listening to a few new things. Rick sent me The Dark Knight soundtrack a couple of weeks ago, and I just got to it, and it's quite good. I have a secret love of movie scores (my favorites - Shakespeare in Love, The Usual Suspects). It's eerie and explosive, as it should be; I was incredibly alert on the subway ride home after work yesterday - ha. But that's next week.

Also, Valencia's latest A Reason To Believe was released yesterday, and you should get into it if you haven't already. Buy it here. It's weird to say it, but it's old-school pop-punk. And yes, by old-school, I mean late 90s/early 2000s. See? Weird.

*It's called me going to work at 7am every day and him sleeping in and ready to "start" his day when I get home at 6pm. Just as I want to crash. Love every minute of it, though. :)

  2. Apparently I can't type, so I'll try again:

    I definitely recommend checking out the Gladiator soundtrack, too. It's another Hans Zimmer joint, and it's serene and bombastic and everything in-between - very similar to The Dark Knight.

  3. john - i stay away from anything related to russell crowe. except for: la confidential.

    hahaha jk. kinda.

  4. I've been listening to Eye Alaska all month. Perfect summer music. I thoroughly enjoy their EP and live show.
