Willful Endeavorment

February 24, 2010

I’m not sure if that title is grammatically correct but it pretty much sums up what I mean.  I have been very busy lately on some old endeavors but some new ones as well so finding the time to post here has been like trying to find the door to a different dimension.

Quite a bit of my spare time has been Between Two Waves over at Eardrums Pop with three excellent music people- hopefully in a few weeks time you will hear the fruits of those endeavors!

What the blog doesn’t show at the moment is how much new music I have been listening to and how many new albums I have had on repeat.   There are so many good new tunes out at the moment- both submissions and new finds that have been titillating the ears and I will post soon.

A quick thank you as well for those individuals who nominated me in the best music blog category for the 2010 Irish Blog Awards…while I haven’t had a lot of time for here it’s nice to know that the efforts are appreciated.

For your eyes and ears is the excellent tune and video from one of my favs Dark Room Notes-enjoy!

Competition time!  This time for American singer song-writer David Bazan (of Pedro The Lion) in Whelans on Thursday February 11th with support from Postdata.

Thanks to Foggy Notions I have a double pass up for grabs for the gig- simply answer this question:

What other band besides Pedro The Lion was David Bazan lead singer of?

Hints here.
