Music Monday: Vol 3

Sorry for missing out last week! I was on vacation but happy to be back! Here are my top picks for this week, what are you loving??

New Releases:

I love this collab by Kygo and Kodaline.  I love the sound of Kodaline with their acoustic vibe and Kygo's EDM skills.  On point!

I love Drake.  All of his different sounds they are amazing.  I thought I didn't like this song but I heard it on the radio and now Im obsessed. 

I can't stop listening to the Lumineers new album.  Their is a lot more depth in this album and Angela is just another example of that.

Tegan and Sara can do no wrong in my eyes.  I am still learning to love this one but their new song is different and outside their comfort zone.  Go Tegan & Sara!

 

All Time Fav:

I recently got Hozier on vinyl.  Its everything and so much more.  This is one of my all time favorite songs from him. Extremely under-ratted song.

I LOVE Oh Wonder, and I love to relax to this song at night, their voices harmonizing together is bliss. Especially with a nice hum background.

Everyone just needs a reminder of this song.  Its on so many sound tracks but its an amazing go to.  And in case you were wondering Band of Horses is amazing!

This song is on a ton of playlist and I never seem to skip it.  I really enjoy Troy Sivan's stuff and different sound.  I recommend checking him out & remixes of his songs.

Music Monday: Vol 2

Hi guys! I hope you are having a great week, I apologize for this Music Monday coming to you a little late.  I cut my hand up real good last week and it has been slowing me down a little bit to say the least. So here are some songs I wanted to share with all of you! And the playlist is updated on the playlist page.

Underrated:

I believe that Melanie was on The Voice show way back.  But I love her new stuff,  it is different and super catchy.

AH this is everything and so much more.  I love Half Moon Run and I just love this song.  Cant get much better!

Alessia was put on the map because of her song "Here".  But I really enjoy her album as a whole and this is one of my favorite songs on the album.  Along with "Seventeen"

New Release:

Im not crazy about this song but I like it more every time I hear it.  I think Nick Jonas and Tove Lo together is a really interesting a cool dynamic.  It a cool Jamaican influenced song if you listen closely to the instruments.

Covers:

I LOVE the song Fast Car, it's probably one of my top favorite songs and I love this up-tempo twist on the song.

Walking On A Dream - The Gardnier Sisters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0fgzA-LgwM

This is yet to be put on Spotiiy but this acoustic version is everything and I love how they arranged the song. It was slowed down but not slow.

Cant Stop Singing:

Im not usually a huge Ariana Grande fan but I cant get this song out of my head.  I watched a video of her singing it acapella and thats what actually really sold me on the song and made me like it.

What are some of our favorites this week??

Music Monday: Vol 1

So I'd like to think that I was a DJ in a past life.  JK but I love music, it can change your day, make or break a party or can say the words you've been searching for.  When I was growing up I had the dream of being a music journalist, which I put to the side since I wasn't very good at writing (here I am with a blog).  And there is no better time than the present.  I wanted to start a series to share my love of music, whether its what I can't get out of my head, new music, or songs I think are underrated. I love my playlist here on the site but I wanted to do something more weekly.  Again I am super into indie pop, alternative, crowd pleasers and sprinkle a little rap in there, sorry you country lovers this post probably isn't for you. I hope you enjoy and hope this can be a place where we share our love of music!

New Releases:

Ah Fitz and The Tantrums have done it again, I am really digging their new sound and love this song.  It just came out this past week and its one too look out for.

This is exactly what I would expect from the Lumineers and that makes me happy since I loved their style.  The piano in this song is perfect touch!

So I tried not to like Zayn but I just can't help it.  His album is super catchy and I would for sure check it out!

Underrated Music: 

You wouldn't expect a dance song from Death Cab, but thats what this song is to me.  The beat is catchy and in true Death Cab for Cutie fashion the lyrics are even better!

I think this song is underrated in the music world and needs some more attention, so lets give it that.  This is the type of song I find myself humming throughout the day.

Oh Wonder is one of my favorite new bands.  There stuff is magical, thats the best word I have.  Its so soothing and yet I find myself listening to it at all times of the day. Lose It has an awesome music video and Drive is one of my favorite songs.

No need for a category:

Birdy is an amazing songwriter, although she is usually acoustic, I just loved this upbeat remix. Especially with the lyrics and message.

The Starting Line has always been one of my favorites and after a like 7 year hiatus they are back and they are everything I could hop for and more!

I have compiled the playlist, with a few most sprinkled in on the playlist page. Like this post if you like this content, I hope there is a little something for everyone!  What's some of your favorites right now?
