Note from Val : 

Last week I visited my parents in Ohio.  They're moving. I'm helping. Whenever I go back to my home town I listen to one radio station that plays nothing but oldies. Takes me right back to the 70's, my friends, the drama, those good old days ... and the foundation of my music obsession. Every song threw me back to a when and where. You know the feeling, the same goes for you. 

So what about new music - how does it make you feel?

If you don't know because you've lost track of new music over the years, it's not your fault. You just got busy ~ career, kids, family, life ~ right when digital music entered the scene ~ how could you keep up? There aren't enough hours in the day. 

I don't know you well, but I'm going to get in your space for a minute. I have two things to say to you: 1) You need to get new music into your life - you deserve it.  2) I can help you do it - effortlessly.

I created Valslist boutique music website for one reason and one reason alone - to get the best new music to busy adults who don't have time to find it on their own. Valslist is a music filter - we keep up with new artists, hand pick each track, and create playlists you can download on iTunes. A win-win:  you discover new artists - and they discover you.

One more thing - in every playlist we throw in two vintage tracks for your comfort zone. Hope they take you back.

Give us a listen   If you've lost track, welcome back.

Best show I saw this week :
Greg Laswell w Andrew Belle  
at SPACE Evanston 
Laswell is known for poignant lyrics 
and hilarious stories in between songs.

Catch him if you can.
Greg Laswell - Take Everything

Clever thing a band did on stage :
The Decemberists 
last month at Lincoln Hall, Chicago

Band members switched instruments with each other  ~
they took their song apart 
and put it back together again


Music tip of the day :
An iPod is only as good as the music on it.
