Desiree

Something to listen to this afternoon: "Desiree" by Sean Rowe. It's off his new album, Madman, which was released this week. About the video, from his FB page: "I put aside my hatred for heights and and weariness of clowns to find my inner child. enjoy!" (People, the man is working through his clown issues for you.)

From a GQ bit this week pegged to the album:

Sean Rowe's new album Madman, which drops tomorrow, is gritty yet somehow catchier than a Taylor Swift song. More soulful too. His extra-deep voice pairs with folksy guitar riffs to make this the kind of album that's at once recognizable and nothing like you've ever heard before. The kind you can leave on repeat all day long: Seriously, try listening to "Desiree"--we have the premiere on the video below--just once. He describes Madman has his most buoyant, most personal album so far.

Oh, and also, he made a squirrel burger this week.

As mentioned, Rowe is playing a hometown show at CAC Woodside in Troy October 3 to celebrate the new album.

I am Dominican so I totally relate. I have thick curly hair (3c) and some of the hair professionals in this area do wonders with fine curly hair but have no idea what to do with thick (ethnic) hair. For the longest I had to take trips to NYC to get my hair done until I found Islenia (you can find her as "Hair by Islenia" in Facebook).She has been doing my hair for over 10 ears and she is excellent! ...
