After all the heavy stuff we debated on the site this week, I figure it’s time for a change of pace. And since it’s the weekend, let’s celebrate with something to lighten the heart and lift the spirit.
This is an open thread for you to tell us about something cool and interesting you’ve come across lately – music, books, art, movies, food, whatever – something that makes you happy and that you think more people should know about. It doesn’t have to be new, just new to you!
I’ll start out by sharing a band I discovered: the English folk rock group Mumford & Sons
. I heard one of their singles on the radio and liked it enough to download their debut album, Sigh No More
, and I’m very happy I did. I love this album; I can sit and listen to the whole thing in one sitting, and I very rarely find a band I like enough to do that. If you like any of these tracks (or if you’re a fan of electric banjo), I guarantee you’ll love the rest of the album. (One or two songs, I have to admit, are slightly goddy, but I can easily overlook that with something this good.)
Now it’s your turn. What do you want to share with the world?
