I love discovering new music. One of my life's missions is to discover new music that no one I know knows and share with them the greatness of what I have discovered. I have always enjoyed a good tune. Growing up in the south, I first liked country then my taste turned to pop then again to country. It was not until the Garden State OST that I was introduced to indie rock and my love for this genre truly began.
Back when it was cool to have Myspace (yes, it was once cool) I loved browsing for different artists to play on my page. I love the feeling as though I am the one to discover the artist. My love for great and unique music has only gotten greater as I have gotten older. Lucky for me, husband and I share the same taste.
While I know they are more popular now, some of my favorites are Death Cab for Cutie, Florence & The Machine, The xx, Bon Iver, Adele, The Postal Service and Mumford & Sons.
I am very lucky to live in a city that has a radio station (WYEP) that plays the type of music I have grown to so admire, love and have a passion for. It was WYEP that recently introduced me to my
(and now husbands) new favorite band. Frightened Rabbit. They are from Scotland with a frontman who fits the image of a Scottish man singing in an indie rock band perfectly and sounds very similar to everyone's favorite Grey's Anatomy circa 2006 Snow Patrol.

Since "discovering" them I have been playing their Pandora radio station all weekend and cannot get enough. Seriously. Every song is, in my humble opinion, amaze balls. Yes, that good. And what a better way to end your Monday and start your holiday week than with new music to help get you through.
I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I have and do pass on the good word if you do. But please not too much because I really don't want have to pay more than $50 to see them in concert (I know how selfish of me). Thanks in advance:)
Cheers to another Monday gone and one day closer to the long weekend ahead of us (at least in the US)!
