As I get older, I find it harder to find new music. Weird, because you'd think with things like Rdio, Last.fm, and Pandora, I'd be able to uncover all kinds of great new stuff. But I don't have a ton of time to explore, and about 97% of the time when I do, everything falls under the "meh" to "this is horrible" categories.
But when I do find new stuff that I like, it usually hits me like a ton of bricks. That's the reaction I had Friday night to Whitehorse. They opened for Barenaked Ladies at the Peabody Opera House and they were just awesome. Literally got a standing ovation from the folks who actually showed up early enough for the opening act – and that's something I don't recall ever seeing before.
Check out this one on YouTube, I think you'll really enjoy it.
They put on one hell of a stage show, and write some great songs.
Note, there's only two social networks I'll connect with anyone on, and that's Rdio and Untappd. If you're an Rdio user, please hit me up. Have suggestions for music I should check out? Leave me a comment.
