3 Days Until Turkey

So, another (thankfully short) week of work, and all I want is to spend time with friends who are back home and eat delicious things. I got to spend the evening yesterday with some of them, and I'm feeling very centered, albeit eager for the week to end. Because of this, and in the spirit of my delightful friend Chris, I wanted to post a few things that reflect the calmness I feel right now, mixed with the anticipation and yearning for the holidays bouncing around in my head. I know I've been on a Field Report binge. This video from the Current in MPLS is excellent though. And perfect for today.

Chris and I watched this unbelievable video of Pretty Broken Things at Doe Bay Fest last night. You should watch it tonight. It'll make you happy.

This new song from Hey Rosetta! on their holiday EP is just ridiculously good, and makes me way too excited for the coming month.

I'm slowly putting together a winter playlist for the snowy months, so keep your eyes/ears out. Also, I'm going to try and get some love for some more "upbeat" stuff over the next few days here, so be ready for some of that.

Happy Monday!

Another Weekend

As I find myself restlessly preparing to head out for the evening (which should be specatacular - one of my best friend's birthdays and then seeing Allen Stone!) I found I needed a song to wind down from work. Naturally, I went to this stunner from Pretty Broken Things. This track is free on their bandcamp, and their currently raising money for their new album, which you can donate to/pre-order here. I've donated, maybe you will too. Check out the track below: [bandcamp track=3910840364 bgcol=FFFFFF linkcol=4285BB size=venti]

Later tonight I'll be partying with Allen Stone. He's awesome. Seriously. Just watch this:

His debut album is out now, and he's pretty cool. Hope you enjoy - have an awesome weekend y'all!
