note of a melodic nature.

EPIC BALLAD

A powerful song
is one
that makes me remember
something
that never actually happened to me.

-Dallas Clayton

All right, does anyone have any good music to recommend? I've been living in a busy Provo bubble, and then a crazy London trip, and I have almost no new music except the sofabulousit'swack new Ingrid Michaelson album. Anyways, does anyone have any suggestions? I'm pretty open in terms of style, I like almost anything. It would be muchly appreciated.

Love,

Heidi Lynn

My playlist made especially for Heidi:

Gimme Sympathy - Metric
Girl - Beck
Life Magazine - Cold Cave
Happy Up Here - Royksopp
Fast Asleep - Voxtrot
Last Dance - The Ravonettes
Daylight - Matt and Kim

Some of them aren't super new but they're new to me, and they're my new favorites.
Enjoy.
