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….

Satellite Stories-Lights Go Low

31 Days of Music Day 23 Here is a fantastic new vibe for today.   Satellite Stories, out of Oulu, Finland, has a new EP, Pine Trails, on the horizon. Just to tease and entice us, they are releasing new songs exclusively on Spotify, as the album release gets closer. “Lights Go Low” is a…
