I really hate myself for liking Owl City as much as I do. he's like a castrated Postal Service- something fluffy and totally harmless. gave his album on last.fm a listen. not amazing, but pop radio loves it and sometimes you need that guilty pap, like cotton candy for your ears. I prefer "Hello Seattle."''
And Sofia Talvik, Swedish pop star in making (fingers crossed!) - with the 1st of December- has her "Christmas calendar" well under way. ? I'm still confused as to what that's about, but you can check it out at her website: www.sofiatalvik.com. there's some free music on it and she really isn't bad at all. FRIEND HER ON FACEBOOK DAMMIT!
Here's her cover of Leonard Cohen's immortal "Hallelujah," which was perfected by Jeff Buckley (RIP) but eh what can you do:
Today is World AIDS Day. It's weird: breast cancer gets a month and AIDS just a day.
Lastly, to close off on a good note, our imaginary girlfriend Zooey Deschanel is teaming up again with M. Ward to release the second She & Him record (Volume Two) in the spring. yay!
