I went into the bandroom, and Dr. Carroll, the percussion specialist who also teaches rock history, was playing Myriad Harbour by The New Pornographers. The song reminded me of something Kyality would listen to, so I asked him what song it was and he told me. His brother made him a CD of the Best of 2007, which included Myriad Harbour, Icky Thump (White Stripes), Black Mirror (Arcade Fire) a Wilco song I don't remember and others. It was awesome!
Driving home from Jazz Band with my friend Bri, she put in a CD. Yael Naim. It was really cool! She sings in Hebrew and French and English. Her song New Soul, was on an Apple commercial. Bri was right when she said that it's cool when music you have listened to for months finally takes off and becomes popular and is on the iMac commercial. I agree.
Check that out.
