Here's a spot where I rave (or rant) about music I think deserves better recognition. I'll probably shed some light on other big news in the music world.

Let's Buy Happiness
So, I'm all about the things unknown. Life is a little bit more fun that way. So, when I stumble upon a band that literally no one I know, knows about, well it's a gold mine. It's like my own personal band of preference that was made just for me and only I get to enjoy it. So when I intro this band, I mean they're fairly indie. Like barely on the map. Like MAYBE 300 views on YouTube kinda indie. In other words, be happy that I am sharing this band with you, because I wasn't quite sure if I was going to keep them in my private collection or not. Needless to say, because they are so small time this blog will be short and sweet. Let's Buy Happiness is a British band. It falls under the indie category as well as alternative rock genre. They are a self released band that started out playing local shows in Newcastle, England. The band has only released on EP and that is "No Hot Ashes." The band has been invited twice over to record in Maida Vale Studios for BBC radio. As far as it goes for touring, they've toured the U.K twice and have supported many popular British bands such as The Temper Trap. The band's single "Dirty Lakes" is on Spotify's song list of 2011. Within a year of their debut show, they played at Glastonbury Festival 2010 along side major bands like Florence And The Machine and Mumford And Sons. In 2012 the band stated that they were working on a "fresh" new EP for the new year and that the EP was really going to showcase the band and what it's about.
Sadly, the music I'm posting can only be found on YouTube. Grr. Except for one. For one dumb reason. GRRRR. HATE TECHNOLOGY djehipfewufhpeivnreiqpgnuirieqg.
