Monthly Mix: September

For that silly little month inbetween summer and autumn. Inspired by tire swings, the last of the fireflies, backpacks and pencils, taking walks to find the first hints of autumn color, welcomed cooler weather, pulling out all the warm sweaters and scarves in anticipation, bike rides and sleeping with the window cracked open just enough to let the cool air in.

Music Monday - Camera Obscura and Lulu and the Lampshades (A Double Feature!)

Okay, so, to make up for all the weeks I've missed, I'm doing a double feature, Camera Obscura and Lulu and the Lampshades.

Scottish Indie-Pop band, Camera Obscura, has been being blasted out from my computer for a while now and been constantly on repeat. I truly can't get enough of their peppy tunes, especially this one song, French Navy. I love it.

and because you've just gotta listen to this one too:

As for Lulu and The Lampshades, well, I seroiusly have no idea why these guys haven't gotten more buzz, they are perfect. Seriously, I couldn't pick just one video. Their music is great and they are super super creative, not only in their music but with their videos too. Definitely worth a listen (or two!).
