Life has been pretty crazy for the past several months. I got a new job and the wife and I packed up our stuff and moved to the Pacific Northwest. It’s definitely a different vibe than Southern California. Besides missing our family and friends, we miss the sun as well; however, we do appreciate it more when the sun finally decides to show up.
I know. I’m a bad person to you several people out there that actually read this blog, and I apologize greatly. So what’s been going on in my music world? Well, I have some new music from some old and newer bands that I’ve been listening to, and I got to see Tennis in concert a few months ago. They’re a great band to see live and the lead singer has a pretty good sense of humor to go with it.
Down below is a cover version of “Ceremony” from Chromatics. Big thanks to Mike for finding this gem. I also finally heard the lovely cover version of “Souvenir” from Brittle Stars.
Here are some pics below from the Memoryhouse and Washed Out show shot with my wife’s Sony Nex-5n. They were both great bands to see live, but I really would love to see Memoryhouse again. They covered “When You Sleep” by My Bloody Valentine which was a nice highlight of the night. My friend and I got to meet Denise Nouvion who is one-half of the band. She was actually selling their merchandise behind the counter! She’s must be pretty good at sales, because I ended up walking away with one of their shirts, a poster, and one of her photo books. She was very humble to talk to and she signed my poster and photo book as well. For those of you who do not know, Denise is also an art student who shoots all of Memoryhouse’s photos for their albums and I believe does most of their videos as well. She also designed the T-shirt that I bought, so she’s pretty talented. Her photography site is called wearebandits.com.
