Music: Guest Blogger Chelsea from {frolic!}

Today we are very fortunate to have Chelsea from Frolic! writing about her favorite tunes. She has great taste and aesthetic sensibility. Thanks Chelsea!


Photobooth

Hello! I am Chelsea from Portland. I write a blog called, Frolic! where I share my favorite things. Aside from my blog, I also work as a floral + event designer and on occasion a prop stylist. I enjoy living simply, wandering around snapping Polaroids, eating yummy food, attending shows, and hanging out with loved ones.

Lecia asked me to share some of my favorite tunes. Here's a little of what is spinning on my record player right now:

Camera obscura

I think I've been listening to Camera Obscura everyday for about a year. Good thing they are coming out with a new album on April 20th! I can't wait!

Innocence mission

The Innocence Mission might be old news to a lot of you but this '90's band recently released a new album that I can't get enough of. (Thanks for introducing them to me, Pam!)

The high violets

The High Violets are a seasoned Portland band who's style is ethereal and dreamy. Don't they have the best name? Photo via the one true b!x, Flickr.

Blue giant

Blue Giant offers just the right amount of blue-grassy twang.

The kooks

To me, The Kooks are the quintessential British rockers. Check out this pretty video they made.

Loch lomond

Each time I attend a Loch Lomond concert, I am transported to a lovely, lovely place. Their music easily ranks in my top 10.

For more of my favorites, check out the music section on my blog, Frolic!. Thank you so much for letting me visit your wonderful blog, Lecia!

I love listening to music while I work and I also love BBC and so many British bands. My son loves Kings of Leon - I will tell him all about this list - He wants to be a music producer. Off to frolic! :)

I spend most of my time listening to kid music. I look forward to adding some new, age-appropriate music to my iPod. Thanks for helping move my musical tastes out of the late 90's, early 00's!

Lecia, glad you're back in town.
