GARDENING, NOT ARCHITECTURE. If Rilo Kiley and Maria Taylor had a baby and that baby grew up and released an album that was produced by Trent Reznor.
Have I mentioned I love Nashville? It truly is a small town after all. I was introduced to Sarah Saturday (AKA Gardening, Not Architecture) a few weeks ago by not one but two mutual friends. I had been told to check her out by one of these mutual friends on more than one occasion but had let them down and never got around to it. After our formal introduction I figured I should probably get around to it. She is not your typical Nashville act. She’ll be the first to admit to that. But like a 75 degree day after a slew of muggy 95 degree days, her music can be a breath of fresh air in this town. Don’t get me wrong, there are some pretty eclectic (and awesome) styles coming out of Nashville these days but nothing quite like Gardening, Not Architecture. To be brief, it’s catchy pop rock electronic. Check her out and don’t waste as much time as I did.

Seven years ago today, an amazing little soul entered the world in the body of a reeeeeeally cute puppy. And I named him Ragnar The Pirate.
