Noah Gunderson-First Defeat

I readily admit to my wide open heart that can hear a song and get weak in the knees. I can easily lose my mind over thoughtful lyrics, where a story gently unfolds in a song.  This song, “First Defeat”, makes my heart pound just thinking about someone writing these poetic words of love. Never…

Music for Your Ears

You asked for it, and I can’t help but accommodate my music friends. I have to admit, there was a bit of a learning curve so it took me some time to create a “31 Days of Music” Spotify playlist. There are just a few songs which are missing because they aren’t on Spotify yet….

Arcade Fire-Here Comes The Night Time

31 Days of Music Day 31 This is the last day of my 31 days of music. I thought this quote was perfect for today because it clearly expresses why I listen to music and blog about the connection I have with it. I feel a little sad that I’m on day 31, but that…

Snowflake-Hurricane

31 days of Music Day 30 Well, I am sliding into homebase. I am now on day 30 of my thirty-one day posts of music. I have to admit that I am a little sad that this portion is coming to an end, but also a little relieved that I won’t have to keep up…

Ducktails-Honey Tiger Eyes

31 days of Music Day 29 I have been patiently waiting for new music from one of my favorite bands, Real Estate. It seems like I have been left hanging for forever and ever. Then, low and behold, I find out that one of the main band members has a side project called, Ducktails. It…

Misterwives-The Western

31 Days of Music Day 28 This is a fantastic tune from a new NYC band, Misterwives,  that just received a nice nod from Paste Magazine. I understand their thinking, especially after listening to Mandy Lee’s vocals. Their Facebook page describes them as Soul/Dance/Pop/Folk. Hard to define? Maybe, but I think that is what makes…

Cage the Elephant-Shake Me Down, Come A Little Closer

31 Days of Music Day 27 Sunday is reserved for those songs that I can’t get enough of on my playlist. Without the many hours of listening to new music, I find it to be a much needed rest for a Sunday. I have always loved Cage the Elephant. The first song that sold me…

Becka Pimenta-So Beautiful

31 Days of Music Day 26 This is a departure from my alt/indie roots. This is a pop tune from Becka Pimenta out of England. She has a wonderful song called “So Beautiful”, and created a lyric video of the beautiful moments in her life. From her website it says….. “Born in Emsworth, a small…

James Blake Feat. Chance The Rapper- Life Round Here

31 Days of Music Day 25 I am so fascinated with James Blake. Everything about his music, his style, and the musical chances he takes impresses me. I am living in the heart of rap nation in Atlanta, Ga. I really don’t appreciate it like I probably should. I tend to like the older rap…

Daughter-Home (Jon Hopkins Remix)

31 days of Music Day 24 This song is so different for me, but there is something so hauntingly beautiful about “Home” and her lovely voice. I am captivated by it all, the steady taps, the dreamy instruments, and the voice pleading to be taken home. It pierces something in me that I can’t place….
