As part of my summer plannershere hiatus, (a planniatus???) I've assigned myself homework consisting of my reading mission, and expanding the music repetoire. To aid your patio ambiance quest I'll share the tunes currently ruling the charts in my house (condo technically.) Thanks to my buddy Jamie at MTV Latin America for hooking me up with the first three back in Miami.
Scissors for Lefty (best video so far, but not my favorite song of theirs)
Pete Yorn - some good honest rock and roll.
