Soundtrack, Part 1

11th March 2011

I’m headed to SxSW, and though I’m still sick, I’ve been spending a lot of time with the music you guys suggested. Speaking of which, wow. Thank you for all the suggestions. I’ve gotten through the first set of recommendations and I’ve also spent a little time with Pandora. For the record, apparently Nick Drake, Mumford and Sons, and Ryan Adams make people weep. Here’s what else has stood out so far.
