Blast from the [recent] past

Hey kids,

Tilly here. As we haven't posted in a bit, I thought I'd share with anyone who stopped by 2g1k a little of what I've been enjoying lately. Interestingly enough, the songs I've been enjoying lately are not so new, but not so old either.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I have to indirectly thank the Twilight sequel New Moon for the discovery of this first song. Terrible movie, terrible acting, but with a fantastic soundtrack. One of the songs was a compilation between St. Vincent and Bon Iver, which I've posted in the past. If not for that song, I might never have discovered Bon Iver's music in general, and I'm so glad I have now. Here's a beautiful sample of the album released in '08, For Emma, Forever Ago.

"Skinny Love" - Bon Iver

Also, I've been simultaneously jamming to a very different flavor of music...the danceable wonder that is Of Montreal! I knew they'd released a new album in 2008 (called Skeletal Lamping), but I never got my shiz together and checked it out. A couple nights ago I heard the unmistakable bass line that could only mean Of Montreal, and realized what I'd been missing. Here ya go!

"Gallery Piece" - Of Montreal

Happy music hunting to one and all!



  1. My friend introduced me to Of Montreal a year and a half ago. He said it gives him a better high. Are they really that "cool"?

  2. Of Montreal has a very good mix of bouncy and chillax-y vibes. I think they're pretty cool! Some songs are more accessible than others, but you should give them a shot.

  3. Homeschooling can is difficult with a baby or daughter is young. You have to provide time in the day for each child. Look for age appropriate activities for both ages. Use every moment to have both of your children engaged while allowing them personal time for bonding or development. | | | | |
