Shop Sounds: Winter Playlist

I realized I haven't posted a Shop Sounds post in a loooooong time. So I took a look at my records, CDs, iTunes, to see who I've been listening to most as of late. Turns out I'm going through a playlist stage these days, gravitating towards single songs, rather than a specific artist. I've been... Continue Reading →


Shop Sounds: Jacob Montague

Did you hear?! I'm going to be in my first ever craft show on November 7th, and I am so excitified!! (See a previous post to learn what I mean by this word...) I've been researching craft fair preparation on Pinterest to figure out what I've gotten myself into, and oh boy do I have some... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Gregory Alan Isakov

It's staring to feel fall-ish here. Initially, the cold mornings made me lament the loss of lazy, sunny summer days, but the idea of fall is finally starting to grow on me. The mornings are feeling a bit chillier, and there's a tree in the front yard that has decided to adopt a more golden... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Prateek Kuhad

Road trips need good music. I recently made the twelve hour trip from Seattle to my parents' house in Montana, and I was so grateful to have an iPod full of music to keep me company. I have this habit of downloading a ton of music from Noisetrade, loading it on my iPod, and then... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Katie Herzig

Katie Herzig is the coolest. I had the opportunity to catch her in concert not too long ago, and it was easily one of my favorite shows. She has music to fit every mood; from mellow songs with thoughtful lyrics, to energy-inducing pop songs, Katie's music proves so versatile. Her most recent album, Walk Through... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Odessa

Change can be overwhelming. Transitions are exciting and fun to dream about in the big idea stage, but as they come closer and all of the decisions and changes start coming into view, I find it all a little overwhelming at times. Especially when I have to wait, and be patient. I'm a doer, and... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Lord Huron

I can't get over how clever and creative Lord Huron is. I have a soft spot for musicians who are intentional and purposeful about every aspect of their work. I love to pick through the lyrics, riffs, and album artwork, exploring the how and why of each piece. Lord Huron takes this concept to a... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Alfred Hall

The Washington coastline is pretty amazing. I had the chance to drive to the peninsula with some friends recently, and was really excited when I got to play DJ. Alfred Hall's EP seemed like a perfect match for the scenery, and now, every time I listen to it, my mind's eye is full of the... Continue Reading →

Shop Sounds: Home

I'm a total music junkie. I blame my parents. I grew up with music playing all of the time, live or on the stereo. These days I always have music on, and I absolutely love searching out new bands and swapping finds with my friends. My Shop Sounds posts are intended to share what I've... Continue Reading →
