30 March 2015 - Tyler Ward & Lindsey Stirling - Thrift Shop

I admit it.

I've been looking for an excuse to post the very talented violinist Lindsey Stirling for weeks.  I really had no reason to include Tyler Ward, who does hold up the swagger of Macklemore very well.... I mean, he's really talented, and does have his own album out.

....but I'm all about the hip hop violin here.  That's what steals the show.  And I chose this song because it's not a song where you would expect violin to work well....... and yet it does.

25 March 2015 - Lennon and Maisy - Boom Clap

As many of you are aware (if you read my other blog), I am a little bit of a Charli XCX fan.  But not everything she does is gold, even if I write a post about it.

So, when I stumble upon a cover that makes me like the original more, I am going to pay attention.  The best parts of Nashville, the Stella sisters have taken an EDM-heavy song and made it into a beautiful masterpiece of harmony.  They've done it before.   I'm glad they still do.

And, to answer your question, Charli sent them heart-shaped suckers, so I think she's a fan.
