I love music almost as much as I love books. The variety of tunes on my Ipod is extensive and I'll listen to pretty much anything. Why not share what you love?

I bought the July Talk album a few months ago because the contrast in the singer's voices immediately drew me in. He has a gravely deep deep voice and she sounds sweet enough to give you a tooth ache. Throw them together in an alternative/indie rock band and its perfect.

But it doesn't stop with just their sound. They recently played at show at K-days in Edmonton - free with gate admission ($6 for me). Yes, I said I saw this wicked band for $6. And the stage presence blew my mind! Leah continuously interacts with the audience - she was especially taken with a gentleman wearing a giant unicorn mask/head and brought him up on stage for a song. Another dude was brought on stage and ended up licking her armpit and getting a kiss from Peter. Oh my. The energy was incredible. The whole time.
This was the kind of show that made me love the band more and you left knowing they love their jobs. I highly recommend checking out the album and if you ever have a chance to see them, do it!
Please share your favourite band with me too!
