Hello, Yuri Pleskun. Hi.

I really like this Yuri Pleskun guy. Thank you NylonTV & Nylon magazine for showing me this gem. He's cute. He's not stuck up. His name's Yuri. He has a bit of a Ukranian accent. He loves chicken wings. What's not to love?

I like to meet you Yuri Pleskun. Maybe we can go get some chicken wings together. Or maybe you could even make them for me. Hehe.

Sidenote: I've been meaning to get a subscription to Nylon mag since like January or February. Maybe I should actually do that soon. Remember.

Passion Pit - Sleepyhead LIVE

Hello, here is Passion Pit's Sleepyhead. Passion Pit is pretty much superawesomesauce in my book. So much depth and talent in that band. I especially love this song (read: it's my favorite) for so many reasons including the fact that it's the first song that I heard by Passion Pit and for many others like the random times it reminds me of that need not be mentioned here.

Anyway, check Passion Pit performing Sleepyhead live in Juan's Basement. Pretty much I want to be in that basement with them watching & dancing around.

I should also mention that I have a huge thing for the drummer in this. It might be because I really want to play drums, and he's awesome. But hey, now you know.

Cassie Steele Sings?

Wait, hold the phone, Cassie Steele sings? I had no idea! She's actually really really good too! Cassie is best known for her role on Degrassi: The Next Generation as Manny Santos.

Those of you who know me, you know that Degrassi was my complete obsession for so so long. I loved that show and it still holds a strong place in my heart. Yes, I did watch that show regularly until I was like 23 or so. I admit it. I will still watch it sometimes if the older seasons are on. I only recently started shying away from it in the past few seasons because most of the stellar cast is now gone & replaced with randoms that I don't think can hold a candle to the originals, like Cassie. Anyway, if you don't know me well, fyi for you.

Back to my point. Cassie posted a video of her singing her song Summer Nights & it was the first time I've heard her sing. I was really just blown away by it. I would have never guessed she had such a great voice on her. She should have been singing WAY more on the show. She seemed so cool & at home just chillin out on the floor singing with her guitarist. Very stripped down & honest, just her.

I need to go buy some of her stuff if I can find it. Check this girl out. I swear. Summer Nights has literally been running in my head since I first heard the song Monday.

Ok. End fun rant.

I Blame Coco

My newest music find = I Blame Coco & I love it. The other day Hayley Foster, the fabulous singer of Chaingang, posted this on Twitter:

@hayleyjfoster: Wow Sting's daughter is amazing

From there, I checked out the video to discover I Blame Coco. Yes, she is the daughter of Sting like Hayley said. That family must have some damn good genes. I loved the video and checked out more of her stuff. All very good. Her voice reminds me a little of the style Sting sings, how he pronounces his words or something, and a little of Fiona Apple. It's very souly (if that's a word, soulful maybe) and very fun. I'm pretty sure she'd rock out live. Check her style too. I approve. More:
