My main sources for discovering new music are 1. folk festivals, 2. fandom (mostly vids and mixes/playlists but also other fannish interaction), 3. film & tv soundtracks, and 4. other. Other is usually conversations outside of fandom or being near a radio, but the otherest other happened yesterday when I went to Value Village to drop off three bags of clothes I don't wear and shop for one bag of clothes I will. I found a me-sized black t-shirt with some feathers and the words "The Balconies" on it and deduced, correctly, that this was a band I'd never heard of (also there were actually two of the same shirt in the same size, apparently unworn, so plausibly leftover merch). I decided I'd look them up when I got home and I did and they're great. Remind me some of Die Mannequin (who I know because of Hard Core Logo 2/the Bruce McDonald creative cluster) and Halestorm (who I know because of--I had to wrack my brain to remember this--author notes on an unfortunately apparently deleted Game of Thrones rock band AU that cited a Halestorm song as basis for one played by Brienne and Sansa and Arya and Margaery's band), insofar as all are woman-fronted alternative/hard rock bands with punk and metal influences.


As part of Operation: Be Less Anaemic, I've been looking for more ways to get iron-rich foods into my face. Tahini, in particular, has already yielded two successful experiments: toasted raisin bagel with tahini and honey (delicious but sooooo messy) and vegan macaroni thing (cooked macaroni, miso paste, tahini, mustard powder, some non-dairy milk if it's not cheese-saucey enough, splash of lemon juice, nutritional yeast, lentils; green peas optional).
