Y La Bamba is the...no, I won't say it.

A long time ago on a blog far, far away I wrote this.

Yes, I wrote a super-enthusiastic and highly energetic blog post following a great night in which I'd had too much to drink with my husband, and played groupie to a band of which I'd never even heard. 

It was awesome. I still smile when I think about it.

I followed the band on Facebook but otherwise didn't give them much additional thought. I'd liked their music, but I'm terrible about remembering to buy things like albums. Unless I mention something to Charles, it doesn't get bought.

Then this afternoon I saw this. Y La Bamba, the band from my crazy-silly post, has a new album out! NPR has the whole thing streaming for your listening pleasure.

So listen to it. Do! If you like folky/bluesy stuff with a Mexican flavor, listen! If you like Feist or Florence + The Machine, listen.  Because you'll like it.  And then you'll want to buy it.  Like I want to buy it. 

I did!

And their accordion player? He's still the coolest.   

P.S. I can't believe I've never written about music on this blog. I mean, I know I'm all about the written word and all, but I love music. And I just had to add a "music" label to tag this post! What? I've been slack and I'm sorry. I will write more.

P.S.S. Also, RIP Davy Jones. I am very sad.

Too funny! Ok, I read that post and it is quite...jovial! I don't think I've seen so many exclamation points and caps in quite a while. :) I have to admit, I'm not a fan of that type of music, but I do like it when someone is enthusiastic about something they enjoy! Great post. And I have to say, I love, Love, LOVE reading posts that are grammatically accurate. I know that sounds pretentious, and it certainly isn't a requirement for any blog that I read, but it's refreshing. :)

Aw, you make me blush. I am a grammar fool - can't STAND when people ignore grammar rules and such. I was an English major back in the day, and I copy edited my college paper for a while...so I'm a stickler. But I do love some CAPS and !!!!!s. :)
