What we’ve been listening to.

As you may have noticed The Window Seat has been on a short hiatus. We’ve been finishing up other projects, raising a family, planning weddings, taking vacations, paying the mortgage and of course listening to music. So we’ll be posting songs over the next couple of weeks. So much good music, it’s hard to know where to begin.

Let’s start with a track from Wake Owl, called Wild Country. They’re a band from Vancouver and Portland, and I think you can hear the influence of both places in this song. We hope you like it as much as we do.

xoxo,

Christy

Listen to this now, please.

I recently went to go see Once, the musical based on the film featuring The Swell Season. It was strange to see the movie reimagined as a play, but the music was still brilliant all these years later. Since then, I’ve been on an Irish music kick, which led me to Irish singer-songwirter Hozier. While I was super impressed along with everyone else with his debut single, “Take me to Church,” I’m more drawn to the other tracks on his ep’s. I hope you enjoy the one I’ve posted above, it’s a live track called “Cherry Wine”.

Happy weekend to you,

Cathedrals “Harlem”

We can’t stop listening to this new track from San Fran duo Cathedrals. Their first single “Unbound” was equally captivating, but this ditty is the perfect theme song for our May mixtape of spring tracks. We love the way it starts, and how the place that it ends feels completely different.

Happy almost Friday,

First Dance.

I just got back from a very special wedding in Santa Barbara, and since I’m starting to plan my own wedding I’ve been thinking a lot about the first dance. Some brides care about the dress or the flowers, I care WAY more about the music. I remember envying Prince William and Kate Middleton because they danced to Elton John’s “Your Song” at their wedding. AND it was performed live by Elie Goulding (although I personally would have asked Sir Elton to do it–since he was at the wedding!) But it’s such a classic first dance song, and I will admit Elie’s rendition is beautiful, sad and perfect.

This weekend the lovely couple showcased some stylish and choreographed dance moves to “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees. It was such a fun song to choose, and everyone had so much fun watching them!

One song we are thinking of choosing is Yo La Tengo’s “Our Way to Fall,”
but it’s still too early to make a final decision. But it’s definitely one of many contenders. I posted it above for your listening pleasure, if your in love I suggest you turn it up!

I Got You


Christy & I love Colorado! One of the most amazing venues happens to be in our backyard, Red Rocks, and Jack Johnson will be there April 26th. “I Got You” is really a nice song to listen to any time of the day, but especially at sunset on a Monday which is what I’m doing right now.

Sometimes commentary is offered on Spotify which is fun to listen to. Here’s what Jack Johnson thinks about this song “…You can enjoy anything as long as you have the right person by your side and that was the sentiment of I Got You, it’s just with the ups and downs that life brings. As long as you have someone you love, it makes it a lot easier…”

Hillary Hand and Colorado Bands at SXSW 2014

Loving the sound of this Hillary Hand song on this quiet Friday afternoon. In the next couple days many Colorado artists and bands (like Hilary!) are packing up and hitting the road for SXSW. Goodbye for now friends, and give those Austin Texas folks a taste of our cool Colorado sunshine.

Heart,

Coney Island


I LOVE to imagine how various songs would fit into a movie. This is one of them. Coney Island by Good Old War is the kind of song I think would fit into a scene of the movie where two friends give up on trying to do the right thing. Instead they ditch school and sneak into a small amusement park, eat lots of funnel cake, and get lost in a maze of mirrors. Maybe the scene sounds a little cliche but that’s ok.

Ten Years!


Ten years ago today my husband and I became official at a Chipotle by the Beverly Center in West LA, that is boyfriend & girlfriend. A lot has changed since then. We now live in Colorado, have a son who we’re madly in love with and well, we’re a little older. Today is a special day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤ m.

Come Home

“Under the covers I make a tent
It’s my world that I invent
Without you near me no adventure
I want you to be home”

Oh how I love those lyrics! This is not a new song to the world but to me it is and I just love it.
