So I'm finally back up and running after not having internet access for about 2 weeks. I had it last Wednesday, but was finishing up moving into my new place. So that said, here's the latest in inanity with my ramblings on!
Do you guys have a song that just is never out of your head when it comes to a song that just never fails to make you happy? See, I have one of those, and I will be sharing that one along with two songs that have lately made me feel that way each time I've heard it.
First off is a song I am sure most of you reading this already know. Indie darlings Belle and Sebastian made what could easily be thought of as one of the top 10 songs of the last 15 years in the indie world. The track "The Boy With The Arab Strap" just appeals to so many different people as well as to many different emotions. It's very rare that I find a song that doesn't simply fade with how it makes me feel, and this is one of those rarities!

Next up are two songs I've picked up on recently. The first is by a young woman from New Zealand named Annabel Alpers that goes by the stage name Bachelorette. This song reminds me so much of Stereolab back in the day, and I can't help but feel very warm and happy with this song, entitled "Lifetime". You can check her out here, also!

The last track is one I've heard fairly often as of late. The group White Denim comes out of music-rich Austin, Texas, and it's hard to really find a place that they fit in the genre spectrum. Honestly? Who cares? I have two genres in music. Stuff I like, and stuff I don't. It's that simple. So take what you will from their track "Regina Holding Hands". It's part of the former of the two genres I described. I would like to think it'd be one you all would like, as well!

And again, buy some shit. If not, whichever deity you believe in will make your testicles small. That's assuming they aren't already small, like mine, of course.
