For awhile I couldn’t stop listening to the Alabama Shakes. Now, in the same general genre, it’s The Lumineers that all of my co-workers are getting tired of hearing me talk about.
I was trying to figure out when I initially fell in love with them (even though lately it’s been a nonstop affair), and finally came across this:
Why, yes, that’s exactly what you think it is. It’s a video clip from a show on the CW probably meant for high schoolers, but that I cannot get enough of. It doesn’t hurt that it’s created by Josh Schwartz and stars Rachel Bilson (ahem, The OC). It certainly doesn’t hurt that every man is gorgeous (and one of them is Jason Street!) and every one of Zoe (Bilson)’s outfits are to die for. And it definitely doesn’t hurt that the soundtrack is a mix of music I like, music I love, and music I hear and immediately think “I need to look this up.”
Anyway, the Zoe-Wade “will they won’t they” (depicted above) is a constant theme throughout the series, which fuses NYC+Bama (yes please)…and I’m not in the least embarrassed to say that this is where I first heard my (most likely) favorite band of the summer.
Okay, maybe “in the least.”
