I need to hang out with Smith Westerns for a weekend.

Today Chicago youngins Smith Westerns released their music video for "Weekend," a song I've had on repeat since its release. I'm not sure if it was all the ying yang signs, chopping of the tree or mall adventures that did it for me, but this is a beautifully done video. They also do a shotgun in a bathroom, which I am a fan of. My conclusion? I need to hang out with them for a weekend.

Mountain Man quiet a room with a cappella.

The sweet harmonizing voices of Mountain Man gathered on World Cafe today. The trio provided a much needed study break for me, and a relaxing one at that. The all-girl trio of Bennington, Vermont know how to hush a room with their tamed but powerful voices. Mally Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monning and Amelia Meath know how to perform a cappella the exactly the way it should be. I love that they started off covering Cindy Lauper.
