Monday Favorites and New Temper Trap Single!

You may've noticed with all my recent music posts that I get pretty excited over great songs. In fact, that crazy person you see sometimes on the bus with their eyes closed and swaying and singing (silently!) along to their iPod...yea I'm one of those XD. I'd like to think of myself as having pretty distinguishing taste (ha!) so it's not often that I immediately fall head over heels for a song. I'm not joking, either, I just listened to this new single from The Temper Trap's coming album no less than TEN times in a row. For your own sanity, I hope you love it but not quite as much as me. If you enjoy this, I recommend checking out their first album, Conditions, as well as keeping tabs on their website for news about their upcoming self-titled album! Oh and before I start replaying "Rabbit Hole" again and are some food photographs I enjoyed in the last week! =)

  4. OH MY GOD a new temper trap single...

    ...btw, I get the same way about music, obsessing, listening to songs on repeat...dancing along while on the subway...

    the song is SO GOOD. whew.

  5. Yay! Glad to hear of a fellow obsessive music fan ;p. Yea I have to move some part of my body to good music, even if it's just my mouth silently or my big toe. It blows my mind when I'm at an amazing concert and 80% of the people there are standing still.

    1. Hah - I started reading your comment, saw "move some part of my body," started moving my toes, then finished the comment and realized what I was doing. :D Woop toe-movers!

    2. OH! also... did you hear the other single? "Need Your Love"
