I love finding new artists. Or old artists that you hadn't heard of before. Or ones that you didn't discover during their popularity. "Hey There Delilah" falls into that category - I managed to miss the overplay on the radio and I still adore that song.

But I digress. A few recent additions to my music collection:
Keren Ann, especially Not Going Anywhere and By the Cathedral (I might be in love with French pop music).
Gretchen Parlato (many thanks to my fellow student, Kristen, for the exposure), who has the most beautiful voice I've heard in a while.
Sufjan Stevens, Songs for Christmas - just in time for the holidays.

And Béla Fleck and the Flecktones playing "12 Days of Christmas", just because it's amazing. Notice the change of time signature with each day.
Yeah. That's awesome.
