Good Old War

While tracking though a couple playlists on 8tracks. I came across Good Old War! Two different songs were on two different playlists and I fell in love with both of them! So I figured I needed to listen to them more. I automatically was in love with there folky, alternative country sound. PLUS their songs have some of the most adorable, heart felt lyrics I've ever heard. I love his sweet, nasally voice! The way they layer their voices is really interesting. Its awesome how simple there songs are and they've got some nifty little riffs though out their songs. I can't believe that it took me this long to discover theses guys!

Hope you like this mini-playlist! Look these guys up! They are definitely added to my list of people that I need to see live.


What is WAS, what is IS and what its BECOMING...

Theres no doubt that you can tell that this blog has quickly been consumed by tunes. Which isn't a bad thing. Zoei and myself first started this blog when we started our own lil' screen printing business. Unfortunately last fall we had to close up out lil shop and focus on life a little bit. We love LOVE screen printing and theres no doubt that we will start it up again soon. But until then I've been neglecting this blog quite a bit. Mostly because I have my own personal BLOG, that I've been working hard at keeping updated. Its also hard to blog about screen printing and our art adventures when we really aren't having any.

So its half way though the year and so far the Brightside blog has become my place to share music with all of you. Which I personally love! I've always wanted a music blog, but never really knew how to go about it. I've been pretty flaky and only blogging when I find something that I really just want to share with the readers of the interweb. But I think that's how it should be. So no more music just on Mondays, now its music everyday...err...when I find something worth sharing!

I'm not sure how many readers we actually have on this blog, but if you happen to stumble upon it then I hope you find a band off of this blog that you really love. Or at the very least find a bit interesting.

Keep on listening! Don't fret we'll be back sinking our hands into some inky goodness in no time!

Not Monday, but Music.

I just got home from an amazing lil' show in good ol' Provo. We had the pleasure to listen to the Utah native, Isaac Russell. I'm sure I've rambled on about him plenty of times and it seems like all the ladies around here can't get enough of him. I don't blame them, he is the bee's knees. But he is on his way to releasing a new album any day now, so seeing him live means a lot of new songs! Which I always enjoy because I love following artist and seeing what they can come up with next! Anyways, I really wanted to share the two latest songs of the young Mr. Isaac Russell. Who, by the way, never fails to disappoint and put on a good show! Despite the heat/sweat/smelly people I had a fantastical evening.

So? What do you think? I think I need some sleep and I'm pretty sure Gloria is gonna make it in my top ten for 2013.
