Banks Binge

There's something about Jillian Rose Banks—aka Banks—that just hits all the right notes for me. Maybe part of it is the Victoria's Secret commercial to the tune of her "Waiting Game"... but the California songstress herself is so undeniably sexy. 

If I were to use one word to describe her voice, it would be tantalizing. A little cryptic, a lot of soul. Dark. It is hard not to take this girl seriously. And I can't seem to take my eyes off of her. I started my binge with "Gemini Feed" and fell down a k-hole of video goodness from there. The way she grabs you with her presence. Man. 

So you can imagine the happiness I felt this weekend when I saw Banks featured in the October issue of Glamour. So well deserved, and what a delight. I'm also truly happy that the magazine hasn't lost its music edge in my absence. Wink. 

"I think I'm sexy, and I don't give a f--k if you think I'm sexy," she tells Glamour. For the record (and I'm sure by this point you can tell), I do. 

Her new album, The Altar, is out September 30.
