Christmas Season or Greetings Season, as one of my customers would say has officially begun.
Technically it's not as "cold outside" in Northern CA but the lights are out and the trees are starting to show in windows. So to start the season off I give you one of my favorite Holiday songs. I prefer Deans version over any other.

Noah and The Whale's new album The First Days of Spring will break your heart and start to mend it again. It is extraordinary, stunning, yet simple masterpiece. I have been absorbing it for a month now and every time I listen it becomes just what I need it to be.
It must be listened straight through a few times to get the beauty behind it. The mini Film that coincides with the album is perfection also. I highly recommend this album and their previous album, which I thoroughly love, Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down. They are both must listens (and own for that matter).

R.E.M. was and is iconic to me. Most if not all of their songs hold a special place in my heart and trigger quite a few memories especially the albums of my youth. I was struggling to find how to post a memory of another song when I came across this gem and changed.
This song is beautiful and always takes me back to Swan Valley, Idaho. Imagine sitting in the back seat of a car, the window down, wind kissing my face and playing with my hair. Sun is setting, the Snake River saunters along and the Tetons loom in the background. The song makes the moment perfect.
It is one of my favorite places, songs, and memories. This may be the first memory of R.E.M. but it won't be the last, there are just too many.
