Take my heart with a grain of salt!

Thank you to the girls from blogs Midnight Couture and Big Mac November for your kind comments!  Head over to their sites for some grand doses of German and French (respectively) style.

Overwhelmed by a new job, I have been pathetic about blogging.  But I am sitting on some pics that I hope to post soon.  In the meantime, please enjoy these videos.  The first popped up just now in the  headlines of blogs I follow, from La Blogothèque .  After talking about THE MORNING BENDERS only hours before!

Originally from Berkeley, California, The Morning Benders are now based out of New York.  Seeing them live brings a fresh-faced earnesty and thrill to a concert experience.  Their music is threaded with angst re-examined through more mature eyes; accompanied by a full, stimulating sound.  They remind me of a modern Beach Boys (2nd BB reference, I know), examining love with more cynicism and hesitance.

This second video is of my FAVORITE group for the last 3 or so years, The Kings of Convenience.  I regret not making the 2.5 hour trip to Brussels last winter to see them but the next chance I have to see this duo live, I shall seize zealously.  Even if it means driving all night.

The Kings of Convenience - Soirée de Poche #11 from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

Both of these groups are gems to me, hope you enjoy.
