Kid Sister – “Daydreamin’”

A cousin’s neighbor’s uncle’s half brother’s best friend’s study buddy of mine actually knows Kid Sister.  True story.   Knowing that I could potentially be best friends with a musical genius, I decided to explore Kid Sister’s melodious workings.  I decided she’s pretty good.  So now you can say a cousin’s neighbor’s blah blah blah knows Kid Sister and you guys are pretty much best friends.

Eliza Doolittle – “Rollerblades”

Do you hear that? It sounds a bit like lemonade stands, swimming pools, and freeze pops. Eliza Doolittle has a few intriguing and enjoyable hits which include this little delight with “Rollerblades.” I’ll support anyone who tries to creatively bring back a token of my childhood. This song even inspires me to lace up the ‘ol inline skates and practice by backwards couple skate maneuvers. Memories.

Iron and Wine – “Boy With a Coin”

Iron and Wine… like liver and Cabernet or shrimp and Merlot OR this singer-songwriter from South Carolina. The clapping paralleling with the guitar strumming in this song inspires for me an immediate reaction of toe tapping and enjoyment. Plus, he plays a banjo. Banjos have and will always be fun. If you dare to argue I’ll thumb wrestle you…to death.
