One of my favorite bands right now is Feist. I don't know what it is..but I just really love The Reminder, which is Feist's newest CD. I first started listening to them when I saw the video for the song Mushaboom (which is an awesome song, and a cool video too) on Vh1. I discovered a lot of bands just watching the 'Nocturnal State' on Vh1. A while back, I was having a lot of trouble sleeping, and so I watched the music videos on Vh1 a lot at night, because there really wasn't much on. I also found out that I hate the song A Long Road To Ruin by The Foo Fighters. Okay, not so much the song I hate, but the video. I think it's quite stupid.
Eek!! I ran in to a MAJOR problem last night. I don't have any space left on my Zune!!!!!! What am I going to do? I've had this for such a short time...and I pretty much listen to every thing I have on there. -sigh- It's definitely a problem.
Anywho, I've got to run. (sorry the posts have been short lately. I'm a busy person. =)

Seven Days of Lonely

Of course, today, I was super-excited to be able to actually go to a real store that sells cd's. (my town has a very small mall. There isn't much to it.) Together, me and my sister bought six new cd's today. I'm going to have a lot to listen to. =) One of the things I love about music is that there is always new cd's coming out, and new bands. It never ends. I don't think I could ever get tired of listening to music, or searching for new music. I seriously just spend hours on the computer listening to music. My poor Zune can't hold too many more cd's...oh well. That's not going to stop me from buying more cd's!!!! =)
Sorry this is such a short post...I'm extremely exhausted....and my brain isn't working very well right now.

Always The Best Man

I discovered a new way to find really good music. I was looking at a band's myspace page, and scrolled down to their friends list. I wasn't too surprised to find a different band on their top friends. So, I clicked on that band, and listened to them for a while. And after I listened to their songs, I went to their friends list and clicked on another band. I did that for a while, just listening to random songs on random bands' pages. Which is how I found out about Landon Austin. (If you want to listen to him...here's the link. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=156312634 ) I'm really liking his sound, but then again, I'm pretty easy to win over when it comes to music.
One of my favorite things to do while I'm on the computer is go on to http://www.playlist.com/ and listen to music, obviously. They always have a featured playlist, which I only occasionally listen to. But today, when I logged on, I decided to give this person's music choice a chance, and played the first song. Instantly, I knew this random person has good taste in music. If I had never started listening to their playlist, I wouldn't have discovered a band called Frankly Speaking. I loved the one song that was on the playlist, and went straight to the band's myspace. (Another addiction of mine. Myspace.) -sigh- I love finding good music. There's a special kind of feeling, of excitement, and curiosity when you come upon a band you've never heard before. (Well, for me anyways.)
Another good way to find new music? Movie soundtracks. I just watched the movie Juno for the first time today, and that movie has awesome music. I can't wait to buy the soundtrack.

Well, I'm going to go search for more music. I'd LOVE to hear about other bands..or your opinion on a band I've talked about. Just leave me a comment!!

Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun

Welcome to my blog! So, before I really get started, let me introduce myself. My name, is Samantha. I'm known as Rose to a lot of people (Rose is my middle name) so you're welcome to call me either Samantha (or any form of that name) or Rose. It doesn't matter to me. I made this blog for a few reasons. First, I'm completely obsessed with music. Secondly, I love to talk about music, so this seemed like a good place to do that. Third, I love to hear about awesome bands that I've never listened to, so I made this blog with the hope that I could possibly get some recommendations. I don't really have a preference for genre when it comes to music. I'm not really in to rap/hip-hop, but every now and then I listen to it. My family is musical. We all love singing, my mom can play piano, I know a tiny bit of piano, me and my sister both can semi-play guitar, and we just really like to listen to all types of music.
I can't promise that I'll be completely committed to this blog, because I've failed at blogs before. But I will try to post regularly, and hopefully more than once a week. (Again, I'm not making any promises.) Enjoy.

Currently listening to: Claude Debussy
