Philosophical Monday: GTRL on Summer Hiatus [Listen to the Wave Machines!]

Hey Guys!

I adore GTRL. It was the very first thing I ever wrote for Fierce and Nerdy. But unfortunately, the closer I get to the book launch the less time I have. And since after cutting GTRL last week, the numbers not only didn’t suffer, but also went up to the point that we couldn’t post on Monday, b/c we were out of bandwidth, I decided that I needed to put GTRL on a Summer Hiatus.

So that’s the bad news. The good news is we’ve got a whole mess of great things coming at you this summer, and GTRL will be back in September, just like school. Till then I’ll try to hep you to more of the music I’m listening, so that you guys won’t be so stymied every time I post something that came out after the 90s.

Let’s start with the Liverpoolian group, the Wave Machines. I discovered “Keep the Lights On” on the plane to France and Scotland back in April, and promptly became obsessed with it. I downloaded the whole album almost as soon as I landed back in the States, and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the whole album was very listenable — especially if you like I, went to “lounges” in the your early 20s. Anywho, here’s the song that kicked off the love. Let me know what you think of them in the comments!
