YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS- september! september!

As Rebecca waxed earlier, the first signs of fall are upon us. The cloudscapes are gloomier; the air is colder; STARBUCKS UNVEILS THEIR NEW FALL LINE-UP. TV shows begin again, streets are quiet in the afternoon, so forth.

there are certain kinds of music that put me in the mood for the fall season. I like relaxing music; I like the sort of music you could study or take a nap to. well maybe not like, a full nap, but an afternoon siesta deal.

and why Starbucks has not jumped on Sam and Ruby, I will never know completely! they're this acoustic soul duo straight out of the American south (Nashville, to be specific!). and they were perfect for long, lazy summer days but now they're great for doing whatever it is we do in the fall. pick pumpkins? get ready to hibernate? IDK.

their voices gently coincide and work off each other in an easygoing way. it's just some of the most beautiful, peaceful, real music I've fallen upon lately. If you like (shudder) John Mayer or Jack Johnson or (not shudder) Corinne Bailey Rae, THEN I may have found you a new love, friend:
Sam & Ruby - The Here and the Now - Live on Lightning 100

and my favorite- such a gorgeous song:

Sam & Ruby Live- "Heaven's My Home" from sammy b on Vimeo.



seriously- I won't be posting a lot this September because me and a fellow contributor are embarking on a trip together, BUT this is my gift to you. they are wonderful.

they are currently touring the east coast- keep in touch by becoming a fan on (shudder!)
facebook

Mira likes them! you should like them too!
