I didn’t realize that I knew so many songs by Neon Trees until I listened to their album “Habits”. It’s slowly becoming one of my favorite albums.
You know how sometimes someone tells you to listen to an artist because they think you’d really love them, but you never actually get around to listening to said artist? This happened to me. Jess has listened to Joshua Radin for quite some time, but I only recently discovered his brilliance. His album “We Were Here” is incredible.
Melodic gang vocals, head bobbin’ guitars, and foot stompin’ choruses are just a few reasons that The Lumineers debut album has quickly become one of my top played albums.
This is one of those albums that take you to another land. A new place of adventure and imagination. A place to create a story. I’ve been hooked since I first heard it. But you have to listen to it in it’s entirety.
I’ve been listening to The Dangerous Summer’s album War Paint for some time. But it’s been increasing. With the weather brightening, it’s perfect music for it. The first, and title, track, “War Paint” is a great way to immerse yourself into the cd. All the way through the last chorus of “Waves”, it’s passionate rock, and great driving music. Favorite songs are: War Paint, No One’s Gonna Need You More, and Miscommunication.
I just started listening to “Of Monsters and Men” debut album “My Head Is An Animal”, but I can already tell that this six piece indie folk/pop band from Iceland is going to be on my regular rotation.
With Easter being yesterday, I choose a song that reflect that a little. The Beautiful Things album by Gungor is one of my favorites, especially the song in which the album is named for.
From the first blast of a harmonica supported by a great southern stomp in “Don’t Carry It All”, to the soft Dylon-esque “January Hymn”, and Ending with the musical letter “Dear Avery”, the entire album takes you down a back-country-road adventure. If you like good ole’ southern music, with a little rock, a little folk, and a dash of country, then this is your ticket. Especially like a good harmonica. I’m a sucker for them.
My Favorite Songs: Don’t Carry It All, Down By The Water, June Hymn.
Last week was overcast and rainy, which calls for a certain type of music that is chill and relaxing. The Low Anthem won this week, especially “Charlie Darwin”.
Most commonly known as “The girl from the Gotye song”, Kimbra’s “Settle Down” EP has been added to my regular rotation.
This album was on my heavy rotation this week because sometimes you just need some music that’s upbeat and “fun.” This was one of those weeks.
