How you like me now?

I seriously need to start picking up the pace! Summer's officially in full swing as evidenced by a nearly-crippling heat wave. Anyway, to the tunes!

I've been hearing a song on lots of commercials and movies lately and so I investigated it. I found a video on Youtube by a British band called The Heavy (oh and the song is called "How You Like Me Now?"). It's a great song, lots of energy and kind of a neo-soul groovy sound (not unlike The Black Keys). I really love it. So, I did some more digging on iTunes and it looks like this album came out in did I miss it?? I don't know if this band is working on anything new anytime soon, but I sure hope so. I guess I'll just tide myself over with that 2009 album, The House That Dirt Built.

In other news, and speaking of The Black Keys, they are said to have finished recording their next album and are not just in the last stages of mixing. I'm seriously hoping it's done by the end of the year.

In other, other news, I know that this isn't a book blog, but I need to share what I've been reading. I recently started Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell and omg I love it. I heard all the hype about the movie and then subsequently never saw it, but recently I saw the book and decided to pick it up. It's a great story that really draws you in. And I love that a local (well, from the Ozarks in MO) author has gotten so much attention.

I've also been reading The Feminine Mystique and getting in touch with my feminist side. There are parts that I'm not sure I totally agree with, but I still think this book should be required reading for women everywhere. Very interesting stuff.

Until next time...
