Music is precious to us, both as parents and as individuals. I especially love discovering new music, and I’ve started sticking my ears in new places again after years of staying in my ’90s rock and old school hip-hop bubble.

Last week, I stumbled upon the new release by Eisley, a Texas band made up of four siblings (three sisters and a brother) and their cousin. I first found Eisley about eight years ago when I was researching music venues in Dallas for my band to play. I fell for their dreamy alt rock back then. When I nestled into my music bubble, I missed a few albums and EPs along the way. Now, after previewing the new album, I snapped it up. The verdict: It’s amazing, and we want to share.

eisley_the_valley We’re giving away three MP3 albums of Eisley’s new release, The Valley! We’ll send the MP3 albums as gifts through Amazon.com. And don’t be surprised if you go to Amazon and see that the album is on sale on $5.00 in March. Hey, we’re experimenting with new music, but we’re still cheap. 😉
