WE KEEP ON ARRIVING
Just in case you missed this afternoon's online "Daily Kiss" feature of Cosmo Girl:
Life is good. No, wait.
"If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years it’s that a girl can never know too much about indie music. Think about it: When the littlest known bands make it big (and they often do) you can say you heard them first! Just look at The National. I saw them a few years ago when no one had heard of them and now they’re touring with R.E.M. and Modest Mouse and their songs have been featured on One Tree Hill . So stick with me ladies, and I’ll hook you up with the music you need to know. (I’ll even let you take credit for “discovering” them!)
Allow me to introduce you to Anathallo. While you may think you’ve never heard their music you probably have. Their song is featured in a commercial for Vicks Cough Medicine (the one where it’s raining Vicks drops). Okay, sure, it’s not the sexiest of products to be linked to but it makes sense. Anathallo’s sound is so soothing to the soul it’ll cure you of just about anything. They’re a big group—6 guys and one girl—and after seeing them live I’m totally hooked. Their live show is like a shot of happiness! So check them out okay? You'll be glad you did.
Have wonderful weekends everyone. We're all back home in Mount Pleasant for a few days... Nate has his recital tomorrow and we'll be playing a few songs (CALVIN COLLEGE STYLE) with trombone choir accompaniment. Including, perhaps, an unheard Canopy Glow track. Perhaps.
It's free and you're invited! And if you can't come, youtube is free and you'll eventually be invited. No promises (!) but that's the hope.
