this icelandic group hasn't released their album in the US yet [and i can't find it legally online!] but you can hear a number of live tracks on npr. i can't wait for the full release! there's definitely something arcade fire-like in their execution, but the delivery is less orchestral and a bit more intimate.
a beautiful girl with a voice to match.
this isn't a new song, but i smile every time it comes on my favorite XM station [spectrum] . . . which is quite a lot!
i've mentioned online retailer invite.L before, but if you're in the market for super-cute small gifts, it's definitely worth checking out!
they also have cute, functional, and reasonably-priced iPad and laptop sleeves.
so far it has been a pretty light weekend -- and i plowed through my list yesterday [still have two more gifts to buy, though]. <-- that sounds more impressive than it is; my list wasn't super-long as gifts for everyone are not necessarily in our family tradition. the kids [ie, my nieces + nephew] are the most important!
your favorites: any book/movie/music/gift recs you are loving lately?
on a similar note, i can't wait for yearly 'top 10' lists to come out. i'm a sucker for superlatives! and lists, of course.
