This is sort of an oldie but as I went through my archives I realized I had never posted it.  Shocking! It came up on my iPod yesterday and I realized how truly awesome the whole album really is.

I guess it might take time to get to love her voice, which is sort of crackly and off key, but I love it, perhaps because how this is how I would sing if I did? There are fantastic backup singers, and country style twangy guitars, and the most charming lyrics. So check it out! You won’t regret it.

Thao Nguyen and the Get Down Stay Down – Bag of Hammers

Also, this is the song that some of you may recall from my audition tape for an HGTV home redesign show, but thats another story for another time. I owe my two day audition to this song, I think. Thanks Thao! If only you could have got me the job…. (I was surprised to find out that I’m not the least bit funny on TV. Who knew?)

OK, Peace out! Listen to some Thao and make the world a better place.

So the move is ovah, and now we are residents of the bustling metropolis of Almonte! Now I have a real office, and a whole room just for sewing! Productivity is about to go way up, right? : )

I somehow lost my camera in the move, so I can’t post pictures, but it is actually a winter wonderland out here – we seem to be out of the heat dome of the city, so more snow falls and it stays longer, and it looks GORGEOUS! I shoveled last night and this morning. : )

Also – its about time for a song of the week! Song of the two weeks I guess…. This one has been sticking in my head pretty consistently, and maybe you’ve already heard it because its supa catchy, but WAIT – its a remix. Its not that I don’t like the original, but I like this remix more – its less polished and more raw, and more electronic definitely. I actually like a lot of DiscoTech’s remixes better than the originals, but I’m a jerk like that. Anyhoo – check it out:

T.I – Whatever You Like (DiscoTech Remix)

The credit train is pretty complicated… I heard it on the Hype Machine, but the blog post came via Pretty Much Amazing, and the song is by T.I., but the remix is by DiscoTech. Blerg. Enjoy the mess! Delicious mess. And now, back to work! Must find camera…  And cross country skis…

another one I found on the hype machine:

“awake at the wheel” by the glorytellers

its sort of dark and haunting but still a beautiful story and I can listen to it again and again. this is a quote from his record company: “Glorytellers is the new main vehicle for Geoff Farina’s (Karate, Secret Stars) songwriting. His distinctive voice panning bittersweet stories over his jazzy guitar work has been a signature style ever since the early 90’s.”

So apparently he’s been doing this for a while… I have listened to a little of his other stuff since… I’ll let you know if I find anymore gems that I can’t get out of my head! And now, back to work. Laters…
