w/ you on a road to nowhere

this song makes me happy. it brings back memories of sunny days in australia. besides, everybody should be laughing, especially on a monday.

my favorite time of year

someone coined me, "sxsw sarah." i'll take it. spring break 2010 did not let me down!

my new year's resolution was to write down all of the shows i see for a year, considering "not swearing" goes out the window in record time. so i kept good track and here are some shows i caught at sx this year:

black joe lewis, octopus project, the givers, metric, joe pug, frightened rabbit, okkervil/roky erickson, the walkmen, broken bells, miike snow, sharon jones & dap-kings, jj, classixx, dr. dog, local natives, temper trap, black rebel motorcycle club, asteroids galaxy tour, real estate, she & him, washed out, memory tapes, major lazer, still flyin', bone thugs, sleigh bells, delta spirit, band of skulls, here we go magic

and more importantly, songs/bands that blew my mind...

"animal" by miike snow

"saw you first" by the givers

"feel it all around" by washed out

"bicycle" by memory tapes

"sun hands" by local natives

"swim until you can't see land" by frightened rabbit

it's true, i'd rather dance

if you have ever received a sarah d. mix, chances are these two songs have crossed your ears. count them as two of my most favorites!

"i'd rather dance" by kings of convenience

"revelry" by sea ray
