On the Ocean

Did I blog this already? Anyway, I like this song, especially the lyric, “Twenty-nine years I’ve wandered around/there’s no beauty here, no emerald town.” I think it might even make an appearance in my memoir…

Guster live

29 03 2015

Finally got the chance to watch them live tonight.

So. Good.

Though it was annoying when a random drunk kid asked if he could be onstage to drink their whisky. Which he did, much to the band’s confusion and perplexity. And despite the kid buying a replacement drink for the one he gulped down in the back as Guster played a song, I still thought it was rude.

But Guster was awesome! Made me love all their music all over again.

I love you, Guster.

30 Day Song Challenge: Day 11: A song from your favourite band

20 04 2011

Upon thinking about which song to choose for today, I realized that I’m not a super-fan of a lot of bands out there.  Most of the music I listen to comes from singer-songwriters.  I like the occasional song from random bands, but I don’t know why I haven’t gotten into any groups as much.  Hmm.

In any case, I’ve chosen the band from Massachusettes, Guster!  I believe I first discovered them when the video for “One Man Wrecking Machine” was playing on muchmusic’s The Wedge program — which I thought was their program for “weird” videos/music, but the video isn’t that weird… — and after that, I wrote down the name of the band and proceeded to search them up after.  Eventually, I discovered their amazing, super-catchy stuff and have fallen in love with them ever since.

It was a toss-up between “Careful” and “Keep it Together”, both from Keep It Together, which is one of my favourite albums of all time.  There are so many good things about it that I can’t even begin to describe it… maybe I’ll attempt to do that a different day.  Anyway, I went with “Careful” because 1. I couldn’t find a studio album version of it on youtube and 2. I feel like “Careful” is a good intro song for people who haven’t heard their music before.

Guster forever!
