Summer is here!

Hey Hell Ya-ers!

Wow it has been a while…

I made myself my new Summer mix CD about a week ago and it has yet to leave my car. Covering everything from Duffy to Does It Offend You, Yeah? the CD has been keeping my interest for far longer than half of the guys I have dated in the last year... Ha! (but oh so true)

One of the songs is a new one from my boys, The Postelles...

These boys have been even busier than I have. After just wrapping up a tour of the UK and France, these barely-old-enough-to-vote boys have recently released their EP on iTunes, got booked for BOTH Bonnaroo and Lolapalooza, and have a new song recorded with Strokes superstar Albert Hammond Jr. The new song 123 STOP is a catchy summer-tune that makes you want to drive around with your windows down, singing along, not caring about the rising gas prices or the lady in the car next to you giving you the you’re-so-crazy look. And we aren’t the only ones talking about them. They have been played on Radio One in the UK and have a slew of press and A&R following… Check out 123 Stop on their myspace page and pick up their EP on iTunes.

As for me, I have been busy busy with all that is life. One of my best friends got married last weekend... Huge music lovers, I walked down the isle to Bright Eyes’ “The First Day of My Life” (I was a groom's lady)… No average wedding march for the Bride either, she walked to Iron and Wine’s cover of “Such Great Heights”.

Aren't they adorable!?
Congrats Jon & Bronwyn!

They had one of the BEST DJs I have ever experienced at the wedding... DJ Jester the Filipino Fist is his name, and though he wouldn't play me any Mark Ronson, he did mash some great tunes together and kept us dancing for hours on end (everything from swing to hip hop). As I understand it, he is a touring DJ, so I highly recommend seeing him... Check out his myspace here.

Till next time...
