I could sing it, high or low.

I know I haven’t been updating this as often as I normally do.  To all of the 3 people who read this on a regular basis, I’m apologize.

At a certain point, I feel like every post is pretty repetitive “Still job hunting, blah blah blah, man, unemployment sure is boring…” and so on and so forth.  There is nothing new to report.  And me whining certainly isn’t entertaining.  So if I don’t write as often, thats why. I don’t need to subject more people to that. BTW, today is Day 52.

A really good website to find out about new musicians you may like: Pandora.  I have found out about a bunch of new artists that I ended up REALLY liking from them; The Hush Sound, Hurts To Purr, and Katie Todd.  I also started giving other artists who I had heard OF, but never listened to, a chance, and was pleasantly suprised, like with The New Pornographers, Petra Haden, The Kinks, Portishead and The Pierces.

Oh, Katie Todd.  I adore you, and yet you insist on being so low profile.  I keep trying to upload her music on Imeem, and for some reason it won’t allow me to (perhaps because I bought her albums on ITunes?).  Anyways, she is great.  the couple performance videos aren’t anything too spectacular, but her sound is so incredible.  The guitar riffs are amazing, and her piano playing reminds me of…running.  It’s hard to explain.

The sound quality isn’t great, and sadly, there isn’t a ton of stuff online to hear. Your best bet is CDBaby.com and just type in her name (she also goes under ‘Katie Todd Band’), and you can hear some samples there. Or just go to her MySpace page, and you can hear some stuff there. But she is really excellent, with a slightly different sound.

Another artist I just learned about, from Perez (which is where I learned about Katy Perry, Bo Pepper, AlphaBeat and Robyn.), is Marit Larsen.

There is another video shot the same day of her walking around the train station singing the song, and then one of her (same outfit, same day) standing in front of a produce stand. All videos are of her singing “If A Song Could Get Me You”. All her other songs (I listened to them on imeem) do not disappoint. And look at her! She’s so cute! She’s like a little Norwegian fairy!

  1. “I keep trying to upload her music on Imeem, and for some reason it won’t allow me to (perhaps because I bought her albums on ITunes?).”

    That’s exactly the reason, tracks bought on iTunes can’t be uploaded to imeem because they’re encrypted and protected so that only you can play them and you can’t share them.

    Thankfully some other nice people have shared some music
