Apparently my ears get bored very quickly, so I’ve been on the hunt for new music as of late. It also probably doesn’t help my cause when I find a song I like, it goes into heavy rotation for a month or two of commuting…over and over and over again. It’s the one major issue I have with iPod playlists. Convenient yes, but one can only listen to a certain song so many times don’t cha know. So I’ve begun to play a little game in the mornings to keep things interesting. iPod roulette. It’s been fun, weird, nostalgic and a whole lot of, “I have never heard this song before, but apparently I own it”.

Right before I went to Lollapalooza, Pennyweight posted this video to her blog. First off, the song is pretty jazzy and the 2 cool old dudes dancing…yes, please give me more of that, but what really struck a chord in me was the set design. I LOOOOOVED IT! I kept watching it over and over again and Where’s Waldo-ing more and more pieces that I wanted to snatch up for my own home.
The shelving, the clock on the back wall, the vintage trophies, the desk in the far right corner, the coffee table, the greenery, the taxidermy bird shown in the first second, the brass pineapple (hellloooo lover!), the small side table. Even the weird bunny head is kinda rad if you’re into giant creepy bunny heads and scarring small children for life. Oh, and that black and white rug is pretty amazing as well…get in my house already!
Anyhoo, after getting over the killer set and listening to Jungle’s song Time about 238 times, I decided I really liked the band. Low and behold, they were playing Lolla, and I was fortunate enough to see them live. So thank you Pennyweight for enlightening me. Jungle is one of my new favorite bands, and their album has been on heavy rotation. I hope you enjoy it as much I as do.
