*Note: Sunday seems to be the time that the blogging world shifts back in to gear after the weekend. Because of that, I will try to present a musical escape for the end of the week. Each month will have a theme and July's will be new music.
When it comes to obtaining new music, I get mine from a variety of different ways. Mostly from other people, some from the blogosphere but on a consistent basis I get it from listening to Alt Nation on Sirius. It's crazy how there are hundreds of channels, yet I mainly tune in to one. But I can't help it.. it plays good music.
Anyway, each weekend they do a top 18 countdown. Usually at the top are established bands such as Foo Fighters and Death Cab for Cutie, but for the past three weeks a band that I am just now becoming familiar with has held the #1 spot.
The LA-based band Grouplove released their debut EP Mirrors last year but are seeming to gain radio play now with the track "Colours." Admittedly, it didn't grab me at first. But I found it was one of those things that I knew the words to and I had no idea who the artist or title was. A month or so later, I can say I like it and have plans to check out the EP.
So give "Colours" a listen (because after all, song titles are cooler when you add the extra "o" in there). And if you don't like it at first, come back in a few days and try it again. If you still don't like it, then I'm sorry I wasted your time.
