The Neighbors

I've had a very stressful, not so happy week so I needed to take a break for just a few minutes for something that makes me happy-blogging and music (less fattening than chocolate).

I went to a concert a few weeks ago that had several local bands/singers. My favorite by far was the last group. I have listened to their music lots since then. They are called The Neighbors and are an LDS brother and sister indie piano rock band who moved out to Utah from Michigan. Adam and Rachel Kaiser sing their own unique kind of music, composing their own songs and playing several instruments. It was so f--u--n to see them live, but the music on their CD is super too. And the CD is only $5.99. You can listen to clips or buy it HERE.

This is one of my favorites called Rusafie.

Or check out their music video

Rachel was recently touring as a back-up singer for Brandon Flowers so maybe you saw her, Ann Marie.

Check them out on Facebook to see their tour dates/venues. Lots of fun!


  1. Well Valerie you are a very hip chick listening to all this new and local music! I like it!

  2. Music can really be a pick-me-up during a stressful time. Looks like fun!

  3. There you go! I think it sounds like fun even if it is not exactly the stuff I normally listen too. Nothing like broadening my horizons a little. Hope you are doing well, and having fun every once in awhile.

  4. Glad you had a moment to do what you wanted to do.
    They look like a darling group!

    Hope you have a better less stressful week

    HUGS to you!

  5. Thank you for gifting me with that Brandon Flowers clip on such a low day. I love that I am always inspired when I come here!!

    I read an article about her.. when she got the job with Brandon and such and I was sooo extememly jealous. That girl is Lucky with a capitol L.

  6. I look forward to your blogs. You actually do some interesting things. We seem not to. We are happy you can do something to relieve the stress and being down. I hope this week will be lots better!

  7. I didn't realize you were so into concerts but you have been to quite a few lately! Glad they had some good music.

  8. Cherie, I am anything but a hip chick!

    Everyone: Well, I liked listening to the music, but I went alone to the concert and that part wasn't so fun. Some things are okay alone, but I've decided not concerts. I just wanted to do something and didn't have anyone to go with me. I went to the first Nikki Forova concert alone too long long before this one.

    Ann, we've already emailed each other, but glad you liked the video I included. :)Hope today is good for ya.

  9. awesome! i learned in october that ANYTHING or person connected to brandon flowers is GOLDEN! proves true yet again, lol. glad you had a great time. ::hugs::
