. scarlett johansson .

i'm always a little wary when actresses act, and then decide to sing and release and album.
i love when scarlett acts. and then decides to reveal to the world - she's incredible at singing.
not crap mainstream. real music.

scarlett johansson

she got together and did an album with pete yorn. and i can't stop listening. 

the first time i watched he's just not that into you, i watched the bonus material on the dvd. and it showed her singing. and i had to find something with her in it.
but i couldn't.
and few months ago i finally could. 
here's relator.

When I met you, I didn't know what to do.
But I noticed that I didn't really feel.
Now you're away, you write home everyday.
I don't beg I don't borrow. I steal.

and remember when i was so excited because steel train came out with a new album?
well they released a companion album with that. and scarlett is on it.

this is the steel train original. they're both phenomenal.

I'm moving on, 

I hope you're coming with me, 

'Cause I'm not strong, without you.

Don't blame it on your shadow.

. mumford & sons .

i just want to dive into a pool filled with water that feels like this band does on my eardrums.

this west london band is just three years old. they make music that matters.


But you are not alone in this
And you are not alone in this
As brothers we will stand and we'll hold your hand
Hold your hand

super weird.
and i love his music.

darwin deez

what i'm listening to on repeat.
the video is so funky. at first i was bugged. and then i loved. 
if you hate it - just close your eyes and listen.
{i'm totally trying that camera thing}
radar detector

You and I go shopping and find exactly what we're looking for
You and I go shopping and fall asleep inside the mattress store.

. ellie goulding .

i had my itunes on shuffle the other day. 
a risky move when you have 5K+ songs. 
and a song came on.
and i loved it.
my friend gave me a bunch of this artists music a while back.

twenty four year old singer song writer from england. 
her sound is nothing new. kinda a mix of lights and kate nash with a little lykke li.
but i love it. another fun band.

get some.
your biggest mistake
starry eyed
salt skin 
i'll hold my breath
black & gold
guns & horses
under the sheets

i love love her vids. go youtube them.

your biggest mistake

guns & horses
It's a shame you don't know what you're running from
Would your bones have to break and your lights turn off
Would it take the end of time to hear you heart's false start?

. city and colour .

i discovered this man through tegan and sara.
his acoustic love is amazing.
as is his voice. the man's name is dallas green. 
better known as.
city and colour.

he is so interesting to me. tattooed from head to toe. totally sweet. glasses. i love him. 

i love the band name because it's after his name. 
dallas = city
green = colour

justifiably awesome.

face the music:
sometimes (i wish)
hello i'm in delaware 
in the water i am beautiful
the girl

this is my favorite song. listen to the whole thing. 
it has a hook in the middle that will blow you away. 

the girl
{don't worry - it's not really six minutes}

And when you cry a piece of my heart dies,
Knowing that I may have been the cause,
If you were to leave, fulfill someone elses dreams,
I think I might totally be lost.

But you don't ask for no diamond rings,
No delicate string of pearls,
That's why I wrote this song to sing,
My beautiful girl

. dirty projectors .

experimental indie rock group from brooklyn?
yes please.

dirty projectors

they're kinda quirky. especially their vids. you'll get over it. the music is amazing.

mostly i'm just in love with this song.
stillness is the move

(recognize her voice? yeah. i just figured it out too. it's amber coffman. featured in rusko's hold on. sweet.)

after all that we've been through
i know we'll make it after the wait
the question is a truth
there is nothing we can't do
i'll see you along the way baby
the stillness is the move

. sleigh bells .

noise pop. exists.
let it ring. 

a fresh NYC duo. will rock you.
if you like bird and the bee. and you like shiny toy guns {post soon to come}. 
you'll love this.

hearken to:
tell em
run the heart
riot rhythm
rill rill

rill rill is my number one

keep thinking about every straight face yes
wonder what your boyfriend thinks about your braces
what about them 
i'll all about them
we never blink see
and you can see me
we fell asleep in the middle of fury

:: she had a guitar, she taught him some chords ::

for my 6th birthday i got a purple camera with blue squares on it. my dad took me on a road trip across the USA and i took pictures of everything imaginable. i was hooked. time passed and i grew older and i forgot about my little obsession.
two years ago i picked up my little digital camera and realized how much i missed photography. so i got a summer job, saved up all my money, and bought a Nikon D60 SLR.
i haven't put it down since.
