My friend Sam, my roomie Lizzie and I were all chillin’ in my dorm on Friday night. The two of them work together in a music store and I love music myself. It’s something the three of us love to bond over, well, that and food– we LOVE food. Anyway, we were all hanging out and listening to music when the idea of an article featuring some pretty obscure artists came up. I asked the two of them to help me come up with some songs to feature and bam! This beautiful baby of an article was born.
1. You and I both lose (but the number 5 wins) byToehider

2. Love Is a Beautiful Thing by Theo Katzman
