Music Video of the Day: “Life In Letters”

Alas, Anniversary Week hasn’t gone quite as planned (what else is new? 🙂 ), as it’s Saturday night and there’s only 2 contest entries, and I’m just getting to my third commemorative post. I’m responding to both of these things by: a) Extending the deadline of the giveaway until next Wednesday night at 11:59 MST. I…

Song of the Day: “Little Joanna”

I’m back with more Anniversary Week-related goodness! Here’s yet another reminder to not forget about the $15 iTunes gift card giveaway. There’s been only one entry so far, so your chances are still quite impressive. Go forth and comment! This Song of the Day (true to form, posted either near the end of the day…

“The Sing-Off” Season 3, Episode 6 Recap: Just A Dream

I never would have expected it (OK, maybe a little, because I’ve learned from 3 seasons of “The Sing-Off” that my expectations are often shattered), but even though tonight spotlighted by far one of my least favorite musical genres…hip-hop…I think it might have been one of the best nights of the season so far. All…

Artist Spotlight: Laura Marling

That’s my extremely low-budget attempt at trying to make these anniversary week posts all shiny. Anyways, here is the first of four (maybe more, but probably four, and what the heck am I rhyming for?) commemorative posts, all with some type of connection to music or artists I shared in my first month of blogging…

It’s Anniversary Week!

Today is a special day here on Harmony Avenue. Exactly one year ago today, I made my first post. That’s right…this here blog is now one year old. When I started this off, I had high hopes…but as I’ve mentioned before, my previous blogging endeavors have been hit-or-miss, and I wasn’t sure if I’d be…

“The Sing-Off” Season 3, Episode 5 Recap: The Power of Love

The two brackets have combined, and all 10 groups took the stage last night for a collection of “guilty pleasures.” (Meanwhile, that other reality show over on ABC counterprogrammed with an 80s theme. Those sneaky dancing devils*.) It was a fun night, and I still wish more people were watching (according to one of the show’s…

Two Songs of the Day: “Young Love” and “Fine Line”

My usual recap of “The Sing-Off” (which, let’s face it, tends to take over this blog a bit when it’s on, though I’ll hopefully be able to remedy that now that I have some more free time) will most likely come tomorrow morning as once again I won’t be able to watch it live (darn…

“The Sing-Off” Season 3, Episode 4 Recap: I Want You Back

Once again, I was unable to watch the show live this week, but watched it this morning (thanks again, Hulu!). Last week I was able to survive until Tuesday morning spoiler-free, but unfortunately last night, I was tipped off to the result of Monday night’s elimination not once, but twice. (I ‘like’ the eliminated group…

My Music: The Park

Here’s a quick post in honor of Feist’s new album (her first in four years!!) coming out tomorrow worldwide. A while ago me, my sister, and her/our friend (hope that’s remotely close to proper grammar) did a summer series of covers. Here’s a gem from Feist’s last album (which was “The Reminder”), called “The Park.” My…
