New music!

I have been searching for some new music, but nothing I have heard lately on the radio or Pandora has made me go running to my list of cds to buy and make note. But I recently found a new group, through the oddest of connections, my knitting group. The Monday knitting group at the library consists of us “older” ladies, who are able to find time every Monday afternoon for some knitting and a good deal of talking. So when one of the knitting ladies mentioned in passing that her son has a band, just as a hobby, with free music to download, I made note of that! Once I got home, I went on the band’s website and settled in for a listen. I am pretty picky about the music I listen to; I don’t easily jump on the bandwagon just because everyone else is listening, or because of the proud words of a mom telling her knitting group about her son’s band. But as I listened, I found myself going, yes! This is what I have been looking for! The name of the band is Trails and Ways, and they are from Oakland, California. I would describe their music as pop with some folk tendencies and a bit of bossa nova sprinkled in – delicious! And the lyrics are sheer poetry – they can be read on their own and enjoyed without the musical accompaniment. If you want to check them out, here is the link to their website –  http://trailsandways.com/ – Maybe you will also find some great new music there –
