rave on

Rave On Buddy Holly comes out today and I was lucky enough to get an early preview. Some of the tribute covers are better than others, but True Love Ways by My Morning Jacket and Dearest by The Black Keys are definite standouts.

You can listen to the whole album here.

matthew & the atlas

Discovered these guys at pilates of all places yesterday, when mid-plank I asked my instructor who she was playing. One part Fleet Foxes, another Ray LaMontagne mixed with a little Mumford & Sons. Love.

mix tape: jenny lewis edition

Went to see Jenny and Johnny at the Music Box on Saturday night and since then my Jenny Lewis favorites have been in heavy rotation.

Just when I thought I couldn't love Eddie Vedder more, he drops Ukulele Songs on me.

more than a pinch

I spent a good amount of time perusing the selections at The Meadow when I was up in Portland a few months back. It's the most lovely little shop that sells salt, bitters, chocolate and flowers. What else do you need? I'm coveting one of their Himalayan salt blocks that you can use to cook on directly your stovetop.
