Finding New Music

My good buddy Kyle and I are music junkies. Well, Kyle more so than I am. However, we both usually have the same problem. We’re tired of the music we have. Yeah, we can go through our respective music libraries and find SOMETHING to listen to, but its always nice to to have something new. But how do you find it? I usually struggle finding new stuff, but today, I tried something new.

I’m a new fan to a couple of bands The Bees and Maserati. So I thought, heck, I’ll go to the iTunes store (where I got those albums) and see what other people bought who liked those bands. It yielded me three new albums:

Rogue Wave - Asleep At Heaven

Rogue Wave – Asleep At Heaven’s Gate

Rogue Wave is a cool band signed to Jack Johnson’s music label Brushfire Records.

Caspian - The Four Trees

Caspian – The Four Trees

A similar band to Maserati, Caspian’s music is very instrumental. Besides coming up with cool music, they’re from Masschusetts, where I currently live!

The Thrills - Teenager

The Thrills – Teenager

The Thrills is a cool band, I’d say similar to The Bees in sound that has been around for a while. I think “Teenager” is their third album.

All three albums I downloaded are excellent. I’ll definitely be using this technique in the future to find new stuff. I’m not sure why I never thought to do it before. I just wish that my music addiction wasn’t so expensive. At $9.99 a whack, it can get out of hand. How about $5.99 an album Apple???

The Beatles Love

Shannan, my fiancee, and I recently took a vacation to Las Vegas. While we were there, we were fortunate enough to catch the Cirque Du Soleil show The Beatles Love. Even though tickets were about $110 each after fees, etc. it was well worth it. To hear all of your favorite Beatles music put to a show with high flying acrobatics was just amazing. If you ever get out to Vegas, I highly recommend seeing the show. Songs used:

  • Get Back
  • I Am The Walrus
  • Strawberry Fields
  • Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds
  • Octopus’s Garden
  • Back In The U.S.S.R.
  • Hey Jude
  • All You Need Is Love

and many many more. There are a total of 26 tracks on the album.
