And for Something New and completely different: Ties by I have a Blood Type. This is a really rough-sounding song in that you can hear a bit of static, but I really like that effect here. I like it's wishful sort of quality and the vocals just seem to float around. It's available for free download on bandcamp.com (if you haven't been to that website and you love music you should definitely go now!). THIS is the direct link to the song and now I think that the band is called Velvet Bumble Bees.. or the singer is Amelia Pianola. Confusing! Anyway, it's just lovely.
I hope these tunes get you going on a Monday in one way or another!
