Guess who's coming (back) to Blogger?

It's been quite a hiatus. Should we call it a leave of absence? Maybe a sabbatical? I don't really know. But what I do know, is that I'm watching a ridiculous amount of television and with that comes a ridiculous amount of new and really cool music.

Believe it or not, I'm still watching "Gossip Girl". It's a load of crap, the plots are outlandishly bad and almost none of the characters are redeeming. I'm hanging on for the moment when Dan and Blair get together, though. So yes, I'll keep watching and blogging. Now, on to the music because you don't care to know about the awful shows I'm watching.

Ida Maria. I guarantee you've heard her song "Oh My God." It was featured in the trailer for It's Kind of a Funny Story, which just so happened to be grossly overplayed. But last night, the song "Bad Karma" was on "Gossip Girl." And just to further prove my questionable TV taste (hey, only sometimes!), it was also on MTV's summer hit show "Teen Wolf."

She's a badass Norwegian lady who means business with her music. She's a little bit Joan Jett and a little bit Feist, which sounds great to my ears.

So far, Ida has released two studio albums - both of which are awesome. Her most recent release, Katla, was a non-stop play for me this summer, particularly the track "10,000 Lovers."
