Currently Absorbing: Melody Gardot

For a momentary change in pace from the usual music we promote around here, I present Melody Gardot. What? We're not always all NIN, all the time. Anyway, I've been listening to her album, "Worrisome Heart", all night and I just can't get enough. Sweet and soulful, a mix of blues and jazz that for tonight I can only describe as "perfect".

You know how there are some albums you have to listen to a few times before they really sink in and then there are those that you just feel it from your head to your toes the first spin through? This album definitely falls into the latter category. It's the kind of music that has inspired drunken emails to friends at 3am. I'll share more about the song that was in reference to another time. For now though, grab a glass of wine (or non-alcoholic beverage of choice) and sit back and enjoy. And if you want to read a little background on on Melody, this is a great article.



Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We should have our Cedar Rapids NIN show review posted here "soon" so stay tuned!

Maise, there's a rumor going around that your "big titty" brassiere landed on stage in Iowa. Heard you've been having back problems ever since.

That was at the Council Bluffs show I couldn't make it to. Please don't remind me because I'm dying of envy of those that went to the show. Not because of the "big titty" bra but just that I missed a show in Iowa. Dammit!

Trent has never seen the like of MY big titty bra, and he can only pray that he will someday.
