Well hello there!

I have finally recovered from my jet lag and have come across my good friend Casey’s lap top, so I can finally give you a little update. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to post a song of the week for last week, but this week when I get home friday I will post one. It will almost definately be Radiohead. But I will commit to nothing.

So in between my seeing of sights, I managed to go to a really cool record store called Rough Trade Records. That store made almost every record store that I’ve ever been to look like shit! Seriously, this store was chalk full of the absolute best music. Not only that, but they have live concerts at the store pretty much every day! Coming up in the store are performances by Johnny Flynn, Noah and the Whale, Dengue Fever the Hold Steady, and many others. In short, it’s an amazing record shop.

Other than that, I’ve been listening to a lot of Radiohead, MGMT and Mum. And I’m seeing Holly Throsby in concert on Wednesday, so I’m really excited about that!

Hopefully, I will be able to update again before I get home on Friday. But who knows! All i know for sure is I’m going in Buckinham Palace and to Abbey Road.

Bye!

P.S.

Have you seen this video yet?

That song is on Holly’s new album, entitled “A Loud Call”. It came out just a few days ago so go pick yourself up a copy!

Ta!

(Au Revoir Simone Wearing the shirt they designed)

I have decided along with my friends at The Yellow Bird Project to write a weekly blog for their site. This doesn’t mean i will stop writing here. I’m just going to be writing more!

In case you haven’t heard, the Yellow Bird Project is a non-profit, charity organization, where they get artists we all know and love (Stars, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Hayden, Holly Throsby, My Brightest Diamond, Devendra Banhart, The National, Rilo Kiley, The Shins, Wolf Parade, Wolfmother, Broken Social Scene, King Creosote and Joseph Arthur) to design a t-shirt, with the proceeds going to the charity of the band/artist’s choice. Some charities that have been chosen are: The Elliott Smith Memorial Fund , The Nature Conservancy, and Art For Change.

This is a very awesome organization and i am honored to be writing a weekly blog for them!
