Welcome back to my...slowly working blog.
Not too much to talk about honestly, summer has been a mix of pure boredom and fun times.
I took up In The Groove again recently to combat my metabolism slowing down.
For those of you who do not know what In The Groove is, it's a more challenging version of Dance Dance Revolution that was made in the USA.
As far as my music goes I have been trying out classical piano this summer. It's enjoyable but It's way too much stress for me. My Jazz studies are going very well I'd like to think.
My good friend and I have started a duo that had our first gig recently at Saxby's Coffee. It was a lot of fun honestly, even though soloing in a duo setting is extremely difficult to pull off for guitar.
Moving on from personal things, now something for you guys.
If you know me well at all...or even a tiny bit you know that I love The Postal Service to the point of them probably being my favorite artist; and I love Owl City's older stuff almost as much (Even though he's sold out for the past two albums
Well, I've been on a search for an artist that has a similar sound to both of them with no avail.
Thankfully though my good friend from the duo showed me a duo out of Austin(Even though one of the guys lives in the North West now) that has taken a lot of influence from The Postal Service. The name of the group is "Quebec Antique" and you can check out my favorite song from the album here. You can also check out their website here and like them on Facebook here.
They have a really great, happy sound that just makes you smile without the super cheesy lyrics like Owl City and without the sad undertones of The Postal Service.
Well, hope you enjoy and I'll be back later on in the Summer.
Peace out everyone.
