Dog Is Dead: All of Our Favorite Stories

Shelby here! In our earlier post, we mentioned that we would be writing reviews and sharing our personal works of art on Peculiar Curls.

Today I wanted to bring everyone's attention to a bitchin' band, by the name of Dog Is Dead. Their innovative, catchy, and "indie-pop," tunes on their newest release, All Our Favorite Stories, will have you hooked.

All Our Favorite Stories opens with a down-tempo "Get Low," before picking up speed with its typical Dog Is Dead sound, "Do The Right Thing." All Our Favorite Stories is a collection of jazzy, poppy, and folksy rhythms, including the dancing-down-the-street jingle, "Glockenspiel Song," and the summer nights anthem, "Talk Through the Night." "River Jordan," is perhaps the darker side of All Our Favorite Stories, with a daunting melody. "Ricochet," transitions the album to a slower, more mellow pace, before slightly picking back up again with "Burial Ground." The album finishes with "Talent Show," and despite the 10% popularity bar on iTunes, the closing track really brings the album to closure.

Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars

To sum it up, All Our Favorite Stories is a beautiful treasury of songs you won't be able to shake out of your head. Be sure to pick that up as soon as you have the chance!

October 13th Photoshoot

So hey, we've been gone for a couple of months, soaking up the sun, enjoying the crisp autumn air, and all. We decided to get together for another shoot, using that Canon Rebel T3 (with da 18-55 mm lens) and a nice backdrop.

Here is Stevie contemplating whilst posing on an abandoned tree stump. Her lovely blue lace dress is from Urban Outfitters, for those of you fashion-crazed viewers.

Shelby here, is posing in her American Eagle dress, looking rather perturbed.

We've come up with more ideas for our blog; our own personal creative works, reviews of things we enjoyed (or didn't enjoy), and just random posts! So be sure to check out Peculiar Curls frequently for all of the awesome and rad stuff that is to come. 

Also, if you're interested in seeing the rest of the photos from today's shoot, click

We wish everyone a happy beginning of autumn, and that everyone will stay warm and cozy for the season. Whip out the scarves and boots, get your Pumpkin Spice Starbucks drinks, and read our blog. 

That is all.
