Song of the Day: We Were Promised Jetpacks - Quiet Little Voices

This is my most favorite thing to come out of England since the original Office. These guys are simply superb. The best part of We Were Promised Jetpacks is that they look like just normal guys getting together for a bang up time. The thing is, they are NOT normal guys. They are like superheros of rock. Check out "Quiet Little Voices".

I like it. It's a catchy little tune. So where do you find all of your music? And where do you find the time to find your music. Your music library is very large, it seems.

Well Lindsey - It all started 2 years ago when I wondered why there wasn't any good new music anymore. I certainly wasn't hearing it on the radio! (Still not)

So, I looked for new music... ANY new music that might be half decent. I knew there had to be something out there.

I taped an episode of MTV's Subteranian and caught a "Bright Eyes" video. I kinda dug it.

I checked out a Bright Eyes album at the library and really liked it. (Looking back Bright Eyes is completely average, but at the time they were different and different is good)

So, then I got ALL the Bright Eyes albums. Then... I went on and started searching "Customers that bought Bright Eyes also bought..."

That led me to some really, really great bands and I was hooked. It became a bit of a hobby to find new stuff that I liked - which was much easier than I thought it was going to be.

Now, it is more of an obsession than a hobby. Who knew all this great music existed? Radio doesn't play squat!

So, I get most of it from the library, but I "Borrow" some from friends with similar taste.

It's great you have similar taste. Someone can appreciate good music.
