Tunes On The Tube: February 5-11

Hi lovelies!

Ashley has reappeared into the blogosphere, and I don’t know about you, but I am so happy to see her! Her posts are always fun to read, and usually give me at least a couple good chuckles by the time I’m done reading. If you haven’t already seen T Swift’s manic Grammy dance moves or the Oscar edition of Between Two Ferns, I highly suggest you get yourself on over to Ashley’s latest post, where you can find them both.

While everyone and their mother were killing it at The Grammys on Sunday night, I was working on a big project for Creating With The Stars! My poor roommates have had to deal with a large piece of furniture taking up space in our dining area, along with the smell of primer and paint (don’t worry I keep the windows open when I prime!), since Saturday morning. And it won’t be back in our breakfast nook until this weekend, unfortunately for them. If you’re reading this, sorry Megans! (Yes, I live with multiple Megans.) My very exciting before-and-after major furniture redo will be up by Feb 21st, hopefully sooner. It’s still in the “during” stages, but I think it’s going to turn out great!

In the midst of Home Depot runs and priming and painting and spray painting and sawing and various other I’m-redoing-my-furniture-madness, I’ve managed to keep up with most of my shows, and I’ve got some awesome music for you this week. PRETTY LITTLE LIARS gave us Madi Diaz and Lianne La Havas (thanks, PLL!), and GREY’S (nine seasons in and I’m still watching) proved it still knows what’s up with a new track from Phosphorescent, along with some newish Grizzly Bear.

Shazam’d! Sunday – March 25th

Hello, and welcome to my first ever Shazam’d! post.  Come with me as I take you on a journey of musical exploration (aka tell you what songs I discovered this week through Shazam or Soundhound).  Whenever possible, I will post a link to the artist’s website and to the song itself for your listening pleasure.  Sometimes the song in question is not in circulation online, in which case I will provide as much information as I can with regards to album/song release dates.  Even if you’re not able to listen to a song, rest assured that it’s fantastic and you should check it out once it’s available!  I mean, I loved it enough to Shazam it, didn’t I?  I realize this is calling on you to trust me and my musical tastes… hopefully I’ll be able to win your trust after I’ve posted a few times, and you’ll be more likely to search out songs from Shazam’d! Sundays.  I promise they’re good, y’all!!
