cmj faves

sigh.

no camera this weekend.

i feel like it's been absolutely forever since i've had an outfit post. and i'm used to centering posts around photos i take, so i feel like i've got nothing new for you guys! plus it's snowing and cold today, so i don't think i'll be doing anything special...

silver lining: i decided to cook a chicken and biscuits crock pot, and the smell is making me feel happy and cozy :)


i decided that i'd share with you a few of my favorite finds from cmj! there were tons of talented bands and artists, but these guys took the cake for me...


sophie madeline

i stumbled into rockwood with some friends, and was immediately turned on by her quirky-folky-girlpop.

i'm always looking for musicians, songwriters, and creative types to network with. and sometimes, i'm actually in the mood to try and make friends :) so i approached her afterward, and we had an awkward little exchange together. i think she was just anxious to get everything packed up and get outta there... however, she gave me a free cd!

here's a video i found on her site covering "firework" with pearl and the beard (who i also love!!)

hank & cupcakes

this is a husband-wife duo. i caught their set at the canal room, and their energy is in-fucking-credible. she actually plays drums and sings at the same time, and ROCKS it. she's like an 80's power rock chick with the energy and confidence of madonna ;)

gotye

i actually didn't see this guy live, but this song played about a thousand times when i was volunteering at registration. everyone was talking about him all week, and i guess this video has 13 million views...




the song and his voice are obviously amazing. but i really enjoy watching the video, because of all his little facial subtleties. i love that he can flick his eyebrow and convey anger or sadness so quickly.

plus i think he has an interesting look. interesting face :)
