Losing Grip

Every once in a while a band comes around that transcends categorical imperatives. The Unseen Guest is such a band. Declan Murray and Indian boy Amith Narayan’s music is a combination of experimental folk and alternative sounds with a jazz feel.
I don’t really know what the elusive ingredient is, but I’m certain that they are a set apart from the crowd of musical peers they're in. I heard their music for the first time in the radio station I worked at a couple of years ago and I quickly found myself coming to the conclusion that such a band’s music is to be revered and will remain special to me for a long time to come. For me, they come out with simply ‘the right sound’. I couldn’t find their CD anywhere or the song that I liked so much online. I’m still on the hunt.

You can listen to their music on MySpace and on YouTube.

I ask myself how I handle all the bullshit at work. But I guess once you’ve given up your dreams there’s a surprisingly larger realm of possibility that appears for you.

What’s left when you get old and don’t want to turn out like those hippies who want to party all the time and you don’t want to be soccer mom either? Too soon to be thinking about this stuff. I’ve got some partying to do tonite.

Have a great weekend y’all. Here's another one by Holly Brook called 'Curious'
