1. Deep Sea Diver: Good Music

    This weekend, a great Seattle band, Deep Sea Diver, released their first full-length. It can be purchased here. I’ll be honest, it’s taken me a little while to warm up to female vocalists. With the help of First Aid Kit and Lemolo, I started welcoming the idea a little more. Jessica Dobson (has been a guitarist for The Shins) is the frontrunner of this project. She keeps her music fun and poppy, but her voice and delivery is in just a low enough register that her words are powerful and I am drawn in by her music. She has confirmed that there are powerful female vocalists out there. She also is an excellent guitarist and it shows in some excellent riffs and loops. Give them a listen (especially You Go Running), and if you can, see them live. Because that is when you really really love it.

  3. I met these girls a couple of week ago, and they were so loving and accepting of my story. They are making great music and are definitely worth checking out.

    Someone recently asked me for advice about how to do the music industry. These are a couple thoughts I had, from my limited store of knowledge.


    Above all things, love what you do.

    Work at it. Always grow.

    Find your weaknesses and strengthen those areas.

    Surround your self with good people…

    Champagne Champagne, I Fell Through (found on the split 7” STRFKR/Champagne Champagne)

    I’m not usually a big fan of rap but Seattle’s own punk-rap-shoegazers Champagne Champagne hit all the right marks for me.  ”I Fell Through” is kind of gorgeous.  A gorgeous rap eargasm.  Yeah you heard right.  This whole 7” is delightful as fuck. I mean STRFKR and Champagne Champagne jams to obsess over.  Yep sign me up every single time.  If you are smitten too you can stream both tracks and purchase the split single over at Bandcamp!

    This video is one of a series that they shot while out camping back in 2009. Congrats to the band for making KEXP’s Top Listener Voted Albums of 2011.

    Happy New Year!
