Hello loyal readers! Guess what?!!
Amor Towles debut novel, Rules of Civility is truly a love letter for New York City. Katey Kontent is a girl about town, and she navigates the streets of 1938 Manhattan with true finesse, reveling in the contagious energy of Greenwich Village jazz clubs, making high society friends with monogrammed lighters and impressive doorman building apartments, and working her way through the ranks of the secretariat pool to a challenging but envy inducing editorial job. Kontent comes from modest means and is quick-witted, sensible, and relatable. You will find yourself rooting for her whether she is climbing the ranks in the workplace, or charming her way through a Long Island lawn party. Serving up a heavy dose of Great Gatsby glamor and capturing the glimmer and promise of New York, this book transports you to another time and place and you won’t want to leave it.
the euphonie blog is back! After almost 3 years, we decided to start up again. You (our still loyal readers, hopefully) can expect the same variety of witty (and often irrelevant) posts. Expect lots of concert reviews, artist profiles, Top 5 lists, rants, and other general jabber. Thanks for reading!

Welcome to the Euphonie, a music blog created by three lovely ladies with a total admiration of all things indie rock ‘n roll. The sky is the proverbial limit. This blog might just include something that will tickle your fancy in a harmonic way, of course. Like…
- “Eureka” posts aka. introductions about new bands we have recently become obsessed with
- random themed top [insert number] lists
- musings about pop-culture and life in general
- selections from “overheard on the office iDock”
- the occasional post outlining the reasons why we disagree with the gods at Pitchfork
And of course, there will be random bad (awesome) puns on occasion.
So take off your coat, hat, mittens or other outwear. Make yourself at home on our fancy old couch. Maybe grab a cold PBR. Why not stay a while and leave a comment or two? We will make it worth your while. Promise.
