bryn listens : songza

congo-rumba celebrate Have you guys tried Songza yet?

Songza is kind of like a new and improved Pandora -- curated music by experts but with a different structure.

You can listen to streaming playlists by genre (Classic Hawaiian Steel Guitar), mood (Introspective -> Sunset Soundtrack), activity (Unwinding After Work -> Grown Folks Hip Hop) or decade (60's International -> 60's Salsa).

Available streaming online or as an app.

At this moment I'm listening to the Congolese Rumba mix, so good!

bryn listens : nick waterhouse

Nick Waterhouse, who serves up new old-sound California R&B, has a new album out, Holly. I am a real fan of his live shows; it's a great sound and classy performance so check them out on tour if you can. I don't actually listen to him that much at home, but a live show always gives me a bit of juice to run on.

bryn listens : majesty & MK

I don't know about you, but I'm hooked on American Idol this season. And it isn't just because Harry Connick Jr. was my first real crush. It might be typical tv spectacle, but there's something about the sweet hope and emotion of each contestant and their families behind them, plus the power of their individual performances. Right now I'm really routing for Majesty and MK...
