In musical news:
I'm adding Mates of State and Mariah Taylor to my concert schedule and I'm listening to Maria Taylor now and I really like her (and not just for her great last name). I found out that she was one half of the band Azure Ray, which is a group I like but I wish I had gotten into more. Finally, she's on Saddle Creek Records which has always produced great artists/records. Here's two tracks from her.
MP3 Song Beneath the Song
MP3 Speak Easy
Mocking Music loves Mates' new CD. They also have a cool new layout.
