What My Pulses Say...

I spend an unreasonable amount of time listening to music and I can't bear to be without it for more than five minutes. I can't remember the last time I had a list less than 70 to 200 songs waiting to be listened to. One of my most-exciting moments is finding a new incredibly talented band that none of my music-snob pals or listeners have ever heard of, which I then get to introduce them to.
This is where I start talking about my latest musical fascination – Lion of Ido. Vocalist, pianist, guitarist, percussionist and accordion player Ido Zmishlany and his band are fairly new to the popular music scene, but have enjoyed getting to know their contemporaries. The song that got me introduced to their world was their rendition of Chris Brown and Jordin Spark’s ‘No Air’. I’ve been known to fall in love quite fast and I have to admit that I think I’m already falling in love with these guys. Their MySpace page is full of catchy pop/rock songs that make me bop my head and sing along while I play them at work. It was really hard for me to close the window when I logged out of work for the day. They are so damn likable and delicious and I think Ido Zmishlany has the funkiest haircut!
Okay apart from his good looks I think the songs sound like… like… Wow! I mean, they’re really good. I actually read a few of the comments for their ‘No Air’ video and whoever listened to it gave it *really* high marks — which was intriguing. So I’m gonna get back to their music now and feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
