after watching an hour long storytellers with death cab for cutie tonight on palladia, i was just about to turn off the tv and head to bed when i heard jim james (solo project from the my morning jacket frontman) performing on stage. surprisingly, i don’t have this album… but after watching the performance, i definitely need to pick it up this weekend. this song (“a new life”) is pretty awesome, and even thought i wasn’t able to find the professional-looking video that was playing on palladia, i did stumble upon this not so bad video from the audience. watch the video all the way to the end – its definitely worth it to see james dancing around on stage
even though its about half a year away (literally!), i was super excited to get tix this morning to see phoenix at the barclays center in october. hopefully their new album, bankrupt, which includes 71 bonus tracks, will be as dancy fun as wolfgang amadeus phoenix, their last release from 2009. bankrupt will hit stores later this month.
the weather is finally starting to warm up and i can’t help shopping for fun summer clothes. my new shopping obsession – free people’s april catalog. i’m totally digging the brigitte bardot styling and think these looks would be so cute for my late summer trip to italy.
