A Good Read, A Good Listen and a Good Drink: Abby Weitz, Wise Girl

It’s a simple yet sublime pleasure, and just thinking about it can make you feel a little calmer, a little more content. Imagine: You bring out one of the good rocks glasses (or your favorite mug or a special occasion tea cup) and pour a couple fingers of amber liquid (or something dark and strong or just some whole milk). You drop the needle on the jazz platter (or pull up a blues album on your mp3 player or dig out that mixtape from college). Ensconcing yourself in the coziest seat in the house, you crack the spine on a classic (or find your place in that sci-fi paperback or pull up a biography on your e-book reader). And then, you go away for a while. Ah, bliss.

In this series, some of NTSIB’s friends share beloved albums, books and drinks to recommend or inspire.

Wise Girl is Abby Weitz (singer/songwriter/guitar), Chris Fasulo (guitar/producer) and Harry Keithline (drums). They’re from New York, and they make power-pop gems like this one, called Wishful Thinking:

There’s also this awesome little tune, which is called You’ll Just Have to Wait:

And now, here is Abby Weitz to share a favorite book, record and drink:

A Good Read: The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron

This book literally changed my life. I had started it in May and it changed my life. We had just finished recording the album and I’d just gotten out of being involved with a shitty person. I’d lost myself in the bullshit and realized that besides recording, I’d lost touch with my creativity because I was so consumed by everything going on. This book helped me realize a lot of things about myself and I started writing again. Funny thing though, I usually write about failed relationships but this person was so worthless they got nothin’! Haha.

A Good Listen: Damone, Roll the Dice

Ugh this band is so underrated and I’m so upset that they are no longer around. This album is great for a pick me up at anytime! I love to rock out to this while im getting ready to go out or when I need to get pumped up for a run or if I have to go on a long drive. Love me some Damone!

A Good Drink: Prosecco

I’m totally a prosecco girl! I can drink a whole bottle by myself without even flinching. One time my friends and I went to the lake by my parent’s vacation house and I brought a kayak and bottle of prosecco and drank the bottle while I kayaked alone while they all tanned. It’s one of my favorite most peaceful memories in the world!
