sunday afternoon tunes

Besides falling in love with a great book, there's nothing else I love more then finding music that gives me goosebumps. It's been about a month and a half that I got introduced to The Radio Dept. and I haven't been able to stop listening everyday. It seemed so fit to post them on a Sunday as I'm sitting outside in my patio area, on this perfect San Francisco afternoon listening to them. There's something about their music that makes me want to go back and watch all the home video tapes that were ever taken of my life, and attach their songs to them. A sense of sadness comes over me when listening to them that I love. I go back and relive moments in my life through their music and then have to remind myself of all the things that have changed up to the present. The fact that music can have that power over me is amazing, and can't imagine life without it. I couldn't even imagine being a writer without music. It plays such a huge part in how I write; as I'm never able to sit down and write unless I've got headphones on, zoning out everything around me. 

I hope you're all able to take something away from music the way I do, and that you all have those playlists on your ipod that you just listen to over and over (that maybe give you goosebumps?). 

Enjoy the tunes and the adorable little cloud in this video!

i bought an album by radio dept. last year maybe, and I wasn't taken by it right away, but maybe I'll have to give it another try now.
