// Music Monday: Tunes to get you through the week

M & I may not have dated, then later married, it wasn't for both of our rather obsessive interest in music. That first night we met, he knew more about the obscure bands I loved than anyone I'd ever met. It was love at first... conversation?

M now writes a great music blog (Paper Pistol) that I contribute to occasionally. I thought it would be fun to share on Habit some of the bands I'm diggin' right now - hope you like today's three picks!

Dan Mangan is my imaginary boyfriend. I just think he's amazing. There's something about the rough, soulful sounds of his music & lyrics that resonates with me... and I'm proud to say that he's from my hometown!

Langhorne Slim was hands down one of the best live shows we saw in 2009. Their tunes are in high rotation over here & never fail to a smile on my face!

I don't really know where to start with Andrew Bird - all I can do is suggest you start at the beginning. Dig up some of his old tunes, and make your way through to the new ones. Every song is a musical masterpiece (in my humble opinion).


  1. mmmm love me some andrew bird :)

  2. Andrew Bird is my imaginary husband! I'll have to check out those other two you mentioned..

  3. @Colene, you'll have to fight me for him ;) Did you know he just did a TED talk? I can't for the life of me find it online though!

  4. TED talk!? omg, I am searching for it now.

  5. let me know if you find it... i've been obsessively looking, with no success...
