My first blog of 2010. I'm starting out with a list of songs/albums where I just couldn't stop hitting 'repeat'. So here goes my list in no particular order (except for #1, it is in the correct place.)
#10 Local Natives- Wide EyesThe official video does this tune no justice. Here's an link to an in-studio session.
#9 Passion Pit- Moths WingsI just stumbled on this the other day and I can’t stop listening to it. I do not think this is the official video but its a nice way to enjoy the song.
#8 The Head and the Heart- Lost in My Mind
No official video from these guys so another in-studio session. Introduced to them by NPR, I was quite surprised I liked it. It’s quite different than my usual taste but very powerful singing and definitely a song to warm the soul.
#7 Vampire Weekend- Giving up the Gun
Yep, you knew it was coming.
#6 Yeasayers- Ambling Amp
Oh boy. I have no explanation for this one? Other than they make strange videos and and....well I couldn't help but listen to it.
#5 The Heligoats- Fish Sticks
Starts out slow and moves super fast. The album Goodness Gracious is also packed with other goodies. It was hard to choose.
+ The Machine- Cosmic Love Florence
This album came out in 2009 but I don’t think this single was released until this year. A beautiful song that came my way courtesy of my beautiful friend Margaret.
#3 Broken Bells- The High Road
A good solid tune
#2 The Temper Trap- Fader
Sweet Disposition- meh, this song? Holy bezeus! Did this one ever get played out in my rotation.
#1 Mumford and Sons- Sigh No More (album)
It has been quite some time that I have been fascinated by an entire album from a band. Another tip of my hat to Margaret who included The Cave on a mixed CD (no we're not in highschool just making up for lost years where I predict we would've been great friends).
