Hi, hi, hi! I've been listening to a lot more music in the past few weeks as I'm coming off a podcast kick. Music and reading go hand in hand for me, and I'm doing a lot more of the latter recently too. Patrick and I are reading The Martian together and I'm also determined to work through as many mysteries as possible as a crash course in story-plotting.
Here are a few songs that I'm especially enjoying during these seemingly endless summer days:
This track is funky, jazzy All-American fun by an artist based out of Nashville with a great debut album called Delilah. Definitely recommended for fans of Ray LaMontagne, The Lone Bellow and that upbeat Ryan Adams sound.
Sam Beam and Ben Bridwell are really a dream collaboration for me. I'm looking forward to listening to the Sing Into My Mouth record about a hundred more times, once I can get past this sweet and lulling version cover of one of my favorite songs ever.
Miguel's Wildheart is absolutely my latest obsession and I freak out on a daily basis over how great it is. If you haven't given it a spin yet, please start with this gorgeously sexy, stunningly romantic dream of a song and video. I want to just make out with "Coffee" all day long.
Alright, I know this next song is more than a year old at this point but its inclusion on the Paper Towns Original Soundtrack brought it back to my attention and I realized all over again and doubly so what a fantastic track it is. I love when songs get a second life.
