Music Monday – 40 Watt Bulb

Hey everyone,

About a week or so ago I was listening to random songs in my iTunes collection and happened upon a group I thought I would share with all of you.  Unfortunately I don’t believe they are writing music together anymore, but I did a quick check and their previous album that I am going to recommend is still on iTunes so I can still share that with you.  The band is called 40 Watt Bulb and they were a group from north-central Minnesota that I met once when I was interning at a recording studio in Mankato, MN.  I guess you would say there sound is more towards roots and folk music, but I don’t want to label it completely, so you can take a listen and hear for yourself.  This is actually one of my absolute favorite albums that I continue to listen to over and over again.  The songs are easy to sing along to, and you’ll find clever lyrics throughout.

You can find them on iTunes here:

or on Spotify here: Forty Watt Bulb – Shovel’s Length Short

The main songwriter also has some solo music out so you find out more about that here:

Music Monday – RWB Revisited

Hello friends, for this week’s Music Monday post I decided I wanted to revisit a band that I shared with all of you just a little while back.  The reason I wanted to do this is because they’re awesome and I want to help support their music, but also because they are in the middle of a cool contest right now.  Starting on Oct 1 (a few days ago) they are going to reveal a new track from their upcoming album each day until they are through the 13 tracks.  The contest part comes in where all you need to do is leave a comment on the soundcloud upload that they provide and you are entered to win a cool prize package featuring a whole bunch of stuff like tickets to a show and merch items related to their new album.  So head over to their facebook page where you can listen each day to the tracks and enter a comment for a chance to win.
