La Blogotheque

How was everyone's long weekend? Please excuse my lack of a Monday post, I was on serious vacation mode and didn't want to touch my computer! We had a great Memorial weekend in Chelan, WA, camping out, cooking, and wine tasting, and this coming weekend we have our wedding shower and engagement photos, so things are a bit crazy around the A&B household. Which means this week's postings are going to be a bit different so bear with me :).

In leiu of Travel Tip Tuesday, I wanted to share with you all a bit of my favorite music. Have you ever heard of take-away shows? My friends have been raving about this French music blog called La Blogotheque, and they film amazing musicians singing on a street corner, in the subway, or just walking around town. These take-away shows are great because you can truly hear how amazing the artists voices are and the people around them usually have no idea what's going on.

About a year ago now I was listening to KEXP and heard Aloe Blacc. He has a voice as smooth as butter... Here is his take-away and if you don't want to listen to all 8 minutes, fast forward to minute three to hear "I need a dollar."

Bon Iver, another amazing singer

Sigur Ros, I love his voice...

I've never listened to Nick Waterhouse, but I loved his takeaway when I saw it.

Hope you enjoy these and here's to a short work week! 


  1. I love Bon Iver and Sigur Ros! Brings a smile to my face :)

  2. I'm smitten with your blog, and these musical discoveries!

    xo, Lena

  3. Glad you like them! And thanks Lena! I can't take all the musical discoveries (I have a musician friend with impeccable taste :)
