We all got into the show Breaking Bad this year. It is about a high-school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal cancer and decides to start cooking meth in order to support his family.
Logic 9 is a very useful recording program that I’ve been obsessed with for the last couple of years. It comes with a lot of very cool plug-ins, including Space Design (Reverb), Delay Design, Amp Designer, and Pedalboard.
The singer from Little Dragon, Yukimi Nagano, sounds to me like a Swedish-Japanese version of Erykah Badu. She writes very interesting melodies and her band plays very groovy electronic music. They have a new album called Ritual Union out this month.
One night back at home in Southern California, I decided to go to a bar called The Crosby to check out the live Bossa Nova jazz band called Sister Rogers. That night I fell madly in love with the whole vibe of Bossa Nova jazz and I highly recommend getting their EP online.
