The time is almost here! MGMT will be releasing their sophomore album, Congratulations, on April 13. The best part is that you don't have to wait until mid-April to preview the new album in its entirety. Travel over to www.whoismgmt.com and you can listen to all 9 tracks for FREE!

This release is trippy / psychadelic and it honestly sounds like the soundtrack to a bad 80's movie...but in a good way (if that makes sense). It's upbeat, but a few of the tracks also have the mellow tone that true MGMT fans have loved all along. Have fun with it!

Download it: "Song for Dan Treacy" / "Brian Eno" / "Congratulations"

Under My Bed

Now my eyes are wide open
Now that every thing's been stolen
And I'm here to get it back from you
See I ain't wasting no more time
gotta take back whats mine
What else am i suppose to do

Here I am
with my heart on the floor
and my love out the door
you should be knocking
but there it goes
I got nothing to show for
except pictures i posed for
but i keep them in a box under my bed

Download it: Meiko - "Under My Bed"
*The acoustic version of this song (if you can find it) is amazing!

Happy Friday...indeed!

I could have never anticipated the great news that I just received regarding one of my favorite bands of all time. Not only are the Born Ruffians releasing their new album in a mere 80 days, but they have just announced their 2010 tour dates and Chicago has been blessed with one of these much coveted dates. :) Of course I immediately purchased tickets, but I'm hoping that all of you will do the same. Their energy is contagious and their live performances are outstanding so I can promise that you won't be dissapointed. Here's what you need to know...

Wednesday, June 16th @ Lincoln Hall
Born Ruffians
Young Rival
Tickets: $12 (purchase them through www.lincolnhallchicago.com)

And with that little nugget of goodness, I leave you for the weekend. Enjoy it!

Whistle while you work...

Last fall I had the amazing opportunity to assist with a photo shoot at an apple orchard owned by one of my past clients. We spent the day scouting great locations, styling the gorgeous outfits, constantly toying with the hair & makeup, shopping for apple products (doughnuts...yum!) and just really having a great time. My fantastic (and super talented) boyfriend was the mastermind behind the whole project and he ended up getting some really great shots. Check it out!!

P.S. Shout out to Ben Mahoney for selecting such a perfect song for this video.
