Airship Adventure

Crossing

My various jobs have taken me to a lot of cool places. LivePlanet sent me to Sundance for three days. Razorfish sent me to Las Vegas two nights.  23andMe,  sent me to the skies, for a slow ride 1000 feet in the air above Silicon valley upon Airship Ventures 23andMe branded zepplin. How cool! My favorite part  about the whole thing is that the windows actually open and you can stick your head (or your camera) out. Thanks 23andMe!

What have you been listening to?

Yes, I know it’s been a while. Thought I’d get back into the action with some new music selections – this is helping greatly with the 6-10 hours a week I have to spend in the car to get to work.

One EskimO – All Balloons
Sweet vocals and just lovely in the auto. Kinda making me think of Simon and Garfunkel. They’re touring and opening for Tori Amos right now. Give it a listen on myspace.

Moby – Wait for Me
Kind of brooding, but still beautiful. Great ambients to cook dinner to!

Grizzly Bear – Veckatimist
Indie rock band of the moment. Check out their nice website.

Dirty Projectors – Bitte Orka
“Experimental”/Indie rock band – critically acclaimed, and compared to Radiohead (but I don’t get it) – trying to – will probably take more listenings. Like the female vocals. Maybe they’re great live? Kinda dramatic.

Phoenix – Wolfgang Amadeus
I saw this pop band at the Wiltern before I left LA. Have to say, I think I like this better.

Looking forward to new records by some of my favorite artists:
Sia
, She’s so fun to follow on twitter!
Zero 7. You can download an .mp3 Everything Up (Zizou) for free if you go to their site!
Imogen Heap – Listen to her new single First Train Home.
