Maya: Honey, Sleep

Seldom do you discover music that’s so good you just want to put it on loop. Maya‘s Honey, Sleep perfectly fits into that category as it enthralls you with heavenly vocals and playful arrangement.

F. Scott Fitzgerald: This Side of Paradise

Enjoy a classical read with This Side of Paradise, an enjoyable novel who established F. Scott Fitzgerald as the golden boy of Jazz Age. Written when he was only twenty three, this is a semiautobiographical tale of Amory Blaine, a handsome and optimistic Princeton University student who slowly undergoes an adolescent indirection. This was portrayed by his sudden disillusionment, his war experience, and his failed relationship with a New York debutante who then breaks his heart for a wealthier man.

Music That Matters: KEXP

I fell in love with the series nearly two years ago during one of my lovely commutes to work for one simple reason - it brings you the most amazing variety of music just in time when you can no longer listen to the same songs you had on your iPod since 2000. Each podcast comes with a theme and a selection of sounds (from nearly every genre imaginable, with a slightly greater love for alternative and indie rock) put together by some of the greatest DJs from Northwest.

The Zut Alors – a free bedroom pop/indietronica album from Nashville

Based on the name of the band itself, you just know the members of Zut Alors probably passed French with flying remarks. Zut Alors, actually, is a French interjection that more or less means dang or dammit. Though dang or dammit would have made catchy band names all the same, zut alors definitely takes the price of the most inventive and clever band name based on an interjection.
