As I clicked to write a new post I looked over at my window and saw the sun come out, shining brightly. How nice..these past couple of days have been so shitty, cold and rainy. This sun is definitely welcome.
Anyways, on to the music.
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – Arcade Fire Who hasn’t been talking about this band lately? With the release of The Suburbs, everyone’s been posting away. Now I admit, I wasn’t originally a fan of this band. Never really heard enough to make up my mind and see if they were really an incredible band like everyone exclaims or if they were just simply over-hyped. It took some time for me to start listening to this album..and slowly I have come around.
‘Cause on the surface the city lights shine
They’re calling at me, come and find your kind.”
I love the whole theme of this album. The lyrics hit you; they’re relatable. We all have felt stuck at some point in our lives. Excellent song.
Clothed And Open Eyed – Local Natives Another solid band in my book. I love this fast tempo and when they drop the percussion and build it back up after a minute through. The frenziness at the end just makes this song fun to listen to. Download.
Our Younger Noise – Letting Up Despite Great Faults This band has been around for a few years now but I only recently have stumbled upon them. This song is nothing but beautiful, hushed boy/girl vocals with some light electronica. My music taste starts to change around this time of year. I don’t think I’m consciously becoming more sad, just more prone to listen to melancholic music I suppose.
I like this picture, enjoy.
