July doesn't. It was crazy. Much like certain farmers, I'm currently experiencing my professional busy season. Over the weekend, I did manage to pick up a new CD. It's Making Mirrors by Gotye.
Yeah, yeah. I'm late to this party. What else is new? Not this album; it was released almost a year ago. I saw him on SNL a few months ago and thought that his songs were catchy, but yesterday I was shopping with my niece, and we heard his song Somebody That I Used to Know. It stuck in my head. Bad.
Now I own it. So far I've listened to most of the songs, but I keep going back to the two I had heard before. (The other song is Eyes Wide Open.) His music is hard to pin down--part pop, part synth-experiment, and part Stevie Wonder at times. That may sound like an odd combination, but it works.
Usually I am not up on the latest in music, partly because I get stuck on CDs. Yes, CDs. It still seems like such a treat that I can listen to them in my car, even though I've had this ability for about 12 years now. *shrug* I have thought about doing a little blog series on some of my top favorite albums.
How have you been? What are you listening to these days?
