"'Are You Sleeping' - Sara Culler
And talk about a likable voice: Sweden's Sara Culler opens her mouth and some part of me melts a bit. "Are You Sleeping" begins as a placid march, with a gentle one-two keyboard/drum riff. With the verse come lyrical blurts, rushed between beats in a clipped but also smile-inducing way (I think it's that voice of hers, that beguiling tone she gets even singing in rushed bursts); but notice in and around the singing how the music is building by way of that swooping, supple bass line. It's setting us up for something, and that something turns out to be a sweet, expansive chorus--a great sing-along thing set against a whimsical pastiche of blippy, ringy sounds, having the effect of being produced by some intricate Rube Goldberg-like apparatus. Listen to the words, too: as far as I can surmise, she's trying to wake us up, she is, with that ever-powerful awareness of how much of our lives we quite literally sleep through. "Are You Sleeping" is a brand-new song off her brand-new EP, Miss Takes - Light the Night!, self-released this week--just in time for her SXSW debut, as part of a series of WOXY-sponsored concerts at the festival. I also feel impelled to point out that Sara is one of the 13 wonderful artists featured on the Fingertips: Unwebbed CD, which is currently available for a $12 donation to this here web site; details aplenty are a click away"

Each Note Secure - March 13
"It's always nice to hear a new, fresh female voice hit the scene. It seems like of late, there have been some really incredible ones that I have been enjoying. From Julie Dorion to Tracey Thorn and of course Feist. But one that certainly belongs in that class but that you may not be aware of is Sara Culler. Sara is from Sweden and has an intoxicating voice that sounds as if she has been recording for longer than her young age suggests. You may know Sara from her time with the band David and The Citizens but she is certainly forging her own path with the recent songs that have been circulating around the web. Sara has just released a brand new EP as well titled, "Miss Takes, Light The Night" which you can purchase by following this link.
WOXY has taken a liking to Sara and her music, and she will be a guest in their Austin Recording Studio tomorrow at Noon. This is actually a homecoming of sorts for Culler, who did a good deal of her growing up in Dallas. This will be her first return trip however in 10 years. Enjoy her new single as well as an older cover of a great Madonna song"

The Futurist - The Independent Rock Blog of
"Yet another SXSW live session recap to get to today, and loads more still to come. Today we recap the Sara Culler session, which was one of my personal favorites. Sara traveled all the way from Sweden for the session and it was a homecoming of sorts for the singer, as she actually spent a good chunk of her childhood growing up in Texas. This was Sara's first return to the Lone Star state in over a decade however. As usual, we have the session photos, a full download and some individual tracks for download as well below".

The great Chris @ The Battering Room has a great blog too and has taken some good notice of both me and David & the Citizens + it was great meeting him in Brooklyn, NY @ Union Hall.

NOW. If I have missed any blog that you think I should know about, let me know by leaving a comment below. I have linked these blogs not only 'cause I think they are great music blogs and that they have had the good taste in writing about me. I have also linked to the blogs so those of you who are not familiar with them find out about them and visit them mainly because the guys and girls are better writers than your average music journalist or have a more relaxed approach than your local music store "know-it-all"... I find more pleasure reading what REAL people think about music than what bored "over listened" or "over studied", bitter professionals get paid to think ;O) Although - I have met some really nice and great professionals out there - you know who you are :O)

Here is a great picture from after I opened for Rocky and Shaun in New Haven, Connecticut
- Great Timesenheimer!!! Go become friends with Oppenheimer the greatest band on earth!
