Music Monday, some weekend keepers and a preview for the upcoming week!

13 Feb

The past week has been quite the week for new music in my world.  With two new previews of some top albums about to drop, my ears have been on sensory overload in the best way possible.

First, James Mercer from the Shins stopped by to play an intimate set show casing some of his new songs off the Shins album to be released (Port of Morrow) in the next month or so.  He played “September” and “Simple Song” off of the new album which were both equally tranquil and beautiful.  I can’t wait to hear the rest of the songs live at Coachella!

Last night was pretty special as well.  If you had any connection to ’90s music then you would know The Cranberries “Linger” or “Zombie” in a heartbeat.  They played those two hits as well as some new songs off of their new album “Roses” to drop next month (it was supposed to be this month but has been pushed back).  I really like “Tomorrow” off of the new album.  It speaks volumes and man oh man does Dolores O’Riordan have some Irish iron lungs.  They sound absolutely fantastic and I continue to look forward to the new album.  One of our radio stations, Alice 97.3, hosted them at a small intimate show at San Francisco’s Infusion Lounge.

I spent a good deal of time at the barn on Saturday just enjoying the day time hours and hanging with the horses.  I guess I’m still that little kid at heart that likes to go out to the barn and spend half my day there.  There’s something so refreshing and peaceful about it.

This isn’t a horse I ride but the way the light was hitting her while the sun was going down was so beautiful!

The rest of this week’s blog posts will be mine and Chelsea’s rendition of San Francisco’s fashion week.  Since it’s New York fashion week right now and I’m headed there Thursday night (not to fashion week but from some leisurely travel), we thought we’d show some of our favorite trends right now to get me ready for the big apple :).
