I am always on the lookout for new artists, new sounds. I read Lefsetz Letter and found an entry about this new song, Bubbly. "GO GET IT!" the letter implored. "This is a HIT!"
I searched it on iTunes and found it to be by a new artist, Colbie Caillat. I listened to it, then listened to the rest of the tracks on her new album, Coco, and immediately clicked the BUY NOW button. For $7.99, I've found a new treasure. I cannot get enough of the entire album. It's always a bonus when you buy a CD and can listen to the whole thing without skipping through those annoying token ballads, or poppy crap-0 tunes. In fact, I like it enough that I would pay a lot more than $7.99 for it.
Even Tony is smittin' with it, and it's not just because she has a pretty face! It's not often that Tony and I agree on musical tastes (he prefers the loud screeching nails-on-a-chalkboard of death metal and the like), so you know it's gotta be good if we can both agree to listen to it every day since I bought it.
A little background: Colbie Caillat got her start on myspace, of all places, and accumulated a huge fan base there before being signed to a label. There are entire tracks there that you can listen to or download for free, so I would strongly suggest you check it out. You'll thank me later.
