a rare breed

hey, if you live in ny, go see the breeders tonight!
or tomorrow…
they’re so cute.

at the bowery ballroom.
and, funnily enough, they’re on the same record label as bon iver, who we just posted about today.

Oh I love the Breeders! I had such a phase when I was about 15 and I still listen... but I don't live in NY, ah well. But thanks for making me think of them anyway, I will now go listen to Drivin' on 9! Sx

bon iver

you know julie, the call center supervisor who was just profiled here yesterday…
well, she was kind enough to write up a little something about one of her favorite musicians, bon iver…
read on, and enjoy.

“Like a quick shot of brandy warming your belly on a cold winter day, Bon Iver sparks a fire in the pit of your stomach and works his way out. His music is layered and reflective, his story-telling frank and selfless. I first found out about him when reading about “Blood Bank”, his latest EP. It was recorded in a remote cabin in Wisconsin, Iver’s home state. The EP is a follow-up to his full length, “For Emma, Forever Ago” which was released in 2008 to much acclaim. Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) is building momentum in the US indie charts thanks to a rigorous tour schedule and rave reviews from respected critics.
His music evokes the crisp winter air along with the silence you encounter when you step outside after a brutal snowstorm. He is a single snow flake falling from a white sky, a single voice touching your soul. I encourage everyone to take a listen to Blood Bank and let it captivate you as it did me.”

Bon Iver is amazing. I saw him at Johnny Brenda's as an opening act (for Black Mountain), and he blew me out of the water. Ever since, I've been hooked. Loved this guest spot--do you often collaborate with other bloggers? If so, I'd surely be interested! xo Jean

anshu

i got an email this weekend from one of our creative directors, merrie. she spends a lot of time in india, and shared this story with me about a little boy she befriended:
“this little boy’s name is anshu.

his family lives on the grounds of our friend kundan’s office and his father is the gardener.
kundan has developed a soft spot for him as he’s grown up because he is so ‘street smart’. he loves hanging with the big guys and doing what they do.
so, kundan decided to send him to a school that teaches english, which is the ticket to a better life in india. the school started only a few weeks ago, and we don’t know if the family will see the value of a good education over the years to come, but we are trying…hopefully it’s the start of something bigger.
i figured out no one had ever taught him his colors, so now everyday after ‘tutions’ he stops by our office and sorts my colors with me. (i work on my hindi, and he works on both hindi and english).”

hi merrie May god bless you and kundan abundantly for all your love and efforts !! Warm Regards Uma
