The one with mister Rice, pumpkins and my favourite sunday sweater

I think I could spend all winter inside, curled up on the couch, with a stash of books, cups of tea, cookies and Damien Rice's new album. Gorgeous song!



Last weekend I heard Tonight, Tonight, by the Smashing Pumpkins on the radio. It's one of my favourite songs of all time, and I wondered what the Pumpkins have been up to lately. I discovered a new song was released last month.



Over at Man Repeller, Jake Isaacs' voice is being described as 'your favourite sunday sweater'. Wondering what my favourite sunday sweater sounds like, I give it a listen. And I like what it sounds like.


Do you like discovering new music? Do you have a go to place to find new tunes? I'd love to know if you have any recommendations.

  1. I love the whole album that Tonight Tonight is on by the Smashing Pumpkins. Those songs take me back :) Their new song is great too.
    I have to admit, I listen to more old music than I do new music.

    1. I love that whole album too! I don't think some of the songs are suitable for work, but I will need to dust it of during the weekend, at home!

  2. Oh wow! This is the first time I've heard Jake Isaac. Awesome! I've been obsessing lately over Taylor Swift's new album and her song "Style" :D

    1. Is it good? I looked it up at Spotify, but it's not available there.

  3. Oh yes, I do love discovering new music. I just purchased two albums (probably not what they are called anymore) for my devices. I bought the soundtrack to Burlesque because most of the songs are excellent to workout to. While I was at the google play store, I decided to purchase the latest collection by Rob Thomas. Now I can't wait to get a new car so I can hook up my phone to the radio instead of putting in CDs.

    1. I used to listen to Matchbox 20 obsessively for a while. They have great songs!

  6. Whoa, I didn't know the Pumpkins were still making music! That's a blast from the past. :-)

    1. They do! But I think most of the past bandmembers, quit, joined again and quit again. And in between they apparantly have been making some music too.

  7. I used to live at a recording studio (there was an apartment attached) and Smashing Pumpkins recorded there while I was living there. They were all really nice. :)

  8. I have to admit that when I first read "Mister Rice," I was kind of hoping it would be like the Mr. Potato Head toy, only with rice. That probably doesn't make much sense, but this imaginary product I imagined would have made a great gift for my husband!

    1. Maybe Mr. Potato Head has a distant cousin named Rice?

  9. I haven't heard a Smashing Pumpkins song in a really long time! I had no idea that they have a new release out. Thanks!
