This Etc.


Been listening to this. And thinking about this and laughing (delightedly) about this and needing to start this. Wanting this and wishing for some of this. That’s all.

I write little passive aggressive notes to myself pretty frequently and I’ve had this one in my head since October. That Instagram even inspired my friend Kristina to make her own. I made it into a free desktop + iPhone + iPad wallpaper so you’ll remember to worry about your own fucking self. Enjoy!

I am newly obsessed with the band Lucius and this song is my favorite thing. Enjoy!


Random Love — Caroline Smith

Caroline Smith – Audiotree Live from Audiotree Live on Vimeo.

I blogged about one of my favorite musicians, Caroline Smith, last month and thought you might be like to watch this great live performance too! Ignore some of the awkward chatter in between. Happy Tuesday!

Volcano Choir // Repave

Volcano Choir is composed of Justin Vernon from Bon Iver (which if you haven’t listened to it, we can’t even talk) and some of the fellows from Colonies of Bees. This album. This album, people. It’s beautiful and perfect. I’m seeing them in Portland in January by myself and I’m planning on throwing panties and crying. Maybe both at the same time.

Kopecky Family Band // Kids Raising Kids

I had listened to random songs from this band before, but spent one Saturday at school and really listened to this album. It’s really great!
