Gardening Rocks 2012 Advent: Day 21

December 21, 2012

Poking through music at random on the internet is like gambling with bad odds–there’s a whole out there, but odds are you’re not going to find something you love. This band, Caught a Ghost, was a lucky find. I really only clicked through to listen because I liked their outfits. Free/legal download of “Hold Out” […]

Gardening Rocks 2012 Advent: Day 20

December 20, 2012

I had been meaning to check out Wye Oak for a while. This song, “Civilian,” is from their 2011 album of the same name, and it’s just the ticket: warm, edgy folk for a cold season we’re probably going to be more than a tad bitter about before it’s over. Grab it here, and check […]

And now we take a short break from the Gardening Rocks 2012 Advent Calendar for Garden Designers Roundtable. Yes, I’ll be posting more music later today. It’s an old, old story at this point… I couldn’t pass up that huge sign on the side of the highway that said BRASS. Did I know what I […]

Gardening Rocks 2012 Advent: Day 17

December 17, 2012

It’s Monday. You know what’s missing from your life? Russian pop, that’s what. This band is called something WordPress doesn’t have the Cyrillic characters for me to type here, which transliterates to “Zimavsegda,” which translates to… Uh… Zimavsegda. I can’t tell you much more than that. I CAN tell you that I like the next […]
