Yay to all my pals and fave bands that made it onto this NY Magazine list for the Top 40 Soungs That Define the Sound! Shannon's latest project, Light Asylum (pic of Shannon, above), comes in at number 40, and it just builds momentum... Oakley Hall, Japanther, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson (he's playing at the Bell House soon... wanna go?), The National, and TV on the Radio, are just a few of the bands that were recognized.
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
