tunes i like tuesday: goodbye midnight



Between the holidays and just plain old life, I've sorta been off my game the past few weeks. (As evidenced by the fact that I've barely been able to blog once a week.)  However, I'm feeling more like myself and think I'm seeing a return to (my somewhat crazy) normal.  Countrymouse and I went to a show over the weekend, so I know things are getting back on track!


We had the opportunity to see The Spring Standards, who put on a great show.  Known for their three-part harmonies, The Spring Standards are hard to peg into one musical genre.  They play folk music.  They play pop music.  They play rock music. They play country music.  At times they sound Beatle-esque.  What's not to like?  


This particular song, "Goodbye Midnight" is from their first effort, No One Will Know, released in 2008.  They released a full-length album, Would Things Be Different, in 2010 and are currently headed back to the studio to work on a new EP.  


When was the last time you heard someone outside of a marching band play the glockenspiel?


Check 'em out and let me know what you think.

  2. Ciao and best wishes for 2011, I am back at last catching up on so much that I missed while I was away from the blogsphere! Thankyou for comments you left on News From Italy while I was absent.

    I understand how you feel about blogging at the moment, one should never feel pressured to do so. Take Care and I am pleased to be here listening to music again.

  3. I know! I am amazed that I started blogging a year ago at this time with great energy. This year, life and work is so big! It is taking too much of my time, and it pisses me off because I can't blog and write as much as I'd like!
