Well Hello Again!

Okay so it's been like forever since I posted anything so I thought I might drop some phat beats on you. I mean that in some sort of figurative way so don't get your panties in a bunch.

I recently stumbled upon two amazing bands. One of them is not really new just new to me, and one of them I would actually consider pretty new to the scene. (Well at least the US scene)
To start off I would like to say if there is anyone out there who hasn't heard The Black Keys yet you should get out there and give them a listen. They are this bluesy rock band that just radiate with sexiness and good times.

Now The Black Keys have been around for awhile and have been featured in a bunch a of movies and stuff and I have been apparently been listening to them for like ages before I even realized it. Anyway I saw them on Jimmy Fallon and was hooked. I now have this crazy love for them and have been listening to their music for like five days straight.

Next on the list is the band Two Door Cinema Club. They are this fun indie-pop band out of Northern Ireland and they totally just rock. I have been listening to them for a few weeks now and I always am craving more listening time with them. They're music is kinda diverse too. Like I can listen to them doing almost anything. I listen to them while I run, while I chill, and when I need a pick me up. I love them. As soon as they start touring in the US I will be the first in line to get tickets to see them out here on the west coast.
Also their album has a cat wearing a crown on it so you know they gets points with me for that.

Now I know that I normally have terrible taste in music often defaulting to the heavily mixed and mastered pop/ hip hop pop genres, but I think these bands show off that I can also like good music that has talent and whatnot. So take a chance and give them both a listen.

PS Katy Perry's California Gurls is pretty awesome too. On that note I will leave you all with some parting wisdom, Snoop Dogg wishes all girls could be California girls. Take that other states!
