Listen To The Darkside - Charlie Mars and Mary Louise Parker

Monday night, I went to make some buttons at 121studio, where my friend Chad gave me his brother's cd: Like a Bird, Like a Plane. This might demonstrate my musical ignorance, but I've never heard of Charlie Mars. And the fact that he is a local artist, only makes above statement even sadder.
Back to the cd, it's been playing in my car on rotation since Monday!It's filled with songs that just make you want to groove to them, and be engulfed in their musical universe. My favorites are #4: What Are You Looking For? and #5: Listen To The Darkside.

I find myself humming the chorus to "What Are You Looking For" while seating at my desk
and doodling away. It's one of those songs that urges to go and do something! Great soundtrack for a creative filled afternoon. I could go on, but you get the point. It's obvious, I've developed a musical crush! All the while, not really knowing who I was listening to.
Then today, I read an interview with Mary Louise Parker at American Songwriter, where she talks about her part in Listen To The Darkside's video. I mean how much better can things get?
I'm a super fan of Weeds and Mary Louise Parker, and has been super excited that Weeds Season 5 is finally here! So video below is a super treat!
