Vitamin String Quartet

So, my last post was pretty... personal. I know, I know-  I said I wasn't going to get personal a few posts before... but I just had to get that one little story out.

But, now- I'm back to telling you about music.  All day today, I was listening to Vitamin String Quartet cover Death Cab for Cutie.
(p.s. you have to have spotify to open that link...)

The best part about this is that Death Cab is one of my favorite bands... ever. The 2nd best part about this is that I've listened to Vitamin String Quartet since as long as I can remember. And discovering today that the two have merged was one of the best discoveries of my life. (YES! It was THAT significant!)

I believe (Laura, correct me if I'm wrong,) that we danced to THIS song in high school. So, it's been at least 10 years that I've known of them.

Then... I forgot about them! Oh my strings! I feel as if I lost a favorite cashmere sweater in the depths of my closet to find it, try it on again, and see that it still fits perfectly comfortable a decade later. 

I've been listening to them all day/all night and I just can't get enough! If you haven't heard them, please, please listen to them. 

They are basically a cover band made up of strings and some percussion (depending on the original song they're covering.)

Take a listen:

You're quite welcome. I hope your work day flies by, now, courtesy of some violins. (I should have never given that dang thing up!)
