Monday Morning Tunes: Little Daylight

Little Daylight

Head-bobbing, foot-tapping, instant ear worms that make you want to get up and dance. That, in a nutshell, is what Little Daylight is all about.

A trio that cannot be contained to one genre, Little Daylight is a New York City-based band bound by hyphens and adjectives: bubbly, bouncy, indie-pop-rock-synth goodness.

They make music that immediately puts you in a good mood. It wakes you up and prepares you for a day of getting shit done. I can write that declaration with complete confidence, having woken up and started my day by listening to their EP, “Tunnel Vision” (and only current release, although rumor has it they are currently busy working on a full-length album), with a full workload ahead of me that has been staring me dead in the face all weekend.

Great (and majorly productive) days begin with dancing.

Snow Day! 15 Movies to Watch When You’re Snowed In

Snow has been a very frequent, very unpleasant visitor in much of the country in the last few weeks. Just yesterday, weather.com reported that the Midwest and South are experiencing the coldest arctic outbreak since the 1990s. So with many schools closed, either because of snow or below freezing temperatures and frostbite risks, I thought… Read More »

Monday Morning Tunes: K’s Choice

K's Choice

I am not playing fair at all. K’s Choice is not a new band to me by any means. This Belgian band, formed by brother and sister Gert and Sarah Bettens, have been around since the mid-90’s. I have been a fan of theirs since the early 2000’s, when I would walk miles everyday with their albums, “Paradise in Me” and “Almost Happy” blaring through the headphones of my discman.

God, I’m getting old. I should really walk more.

Anyway.

“Almost Happy” has always, since the very first time I heard it, been my go-to companion in times of desperate, unwavering quiet. The quiet that makes your ears ring; the kind of quiet that makes you suspicious of just how firmly rooted your feet are to the ground because the earth just may spontaneously open up and swallow you whole.

It is that soothing, honest, and raw voice that gives words to emotions that should not have words to describe them because they are ugly and all that is wrong with what has become of being human. It makes you remember to breathe in times when you’re not sure you want to.

Right now, I need to be reminded to breathe.

K’s Choice is the only band that I could have possibly written about today, and “Almost Happy” is the only album I will likely have playing until I can adequately stabilize myself.
