Well the past few weeks I got very wrapped up in the holidays and just didn't find much time to blog. Christmas was good. It was nice to have 5 day weekends for the past 2 weeks for sure! New Year's was SO amazing. Amanda and I drove down to Las Vegas and stayed in an awesome hotel just off the strip. We kissed for Salt Lake New Year's and then kissed about 20 times for Vegas New Year's. It was a big drunken party, just the way Vegas should be. I couldn't have asked for a better New Year with a better girl. Hope everyone's holiday was good!
So now let's get to it. What I've been listening to today.
GlassJaw has always been one of my favorite bands. I think they've got a really amazing sound. Since Daryl Palumbo has so many side projects, they don't put out as much music as I'd like to see. Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence was a great debut album. And then came Worship and Tribute. And I didn't even know what to do with myself. It's just a really great album written by a very talented guy and performed by a very talented band. Like I said, Daryl has a lot of side projects (including another of my favorite bands, Head Automatica) and some of the other guys have their own side projects as well. Justin Beck, co-founder of the band has a clothing line. Bassist Manuel Carrero and drummer Durijah Lang are both current members of the band Saves the Day. GlassJaw fans have been waiting for their 3rd album for many years, and I'm still super excited.
With that, I leave you with my pick for today. It's GlassJaw-Must've Run All Day from their 2nd album, Worship and Tribute. This is a video made my someone who is not affiliated with GlassJaw but I still thought it was pretty cool. Hope you like it!
Also, I wanted to try doing something fun. With every "What I'm Listening to Today" post, I'm going to add in what other people are listening to. If you have suggestions, leave them in a comment then check back in a week to see what I have to say about your pick! Today I'm featuring a song that my sister picked the day I started this. It's John Mayer's version of Free Fallin', originally by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. John has got a very bluesy/jazzy voice, so I think he does this cover very well.
So here it is. John Mayer covering Tom Petty's Free Fallin'.
