Between several airplane flights, not taking calls at work for a few days due to having lost my voice, and moving this past weekend, I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately. Since this is a place for sharing, I thought I would share some of the albums I’ve been returning to over and over.
I know, I know. I don’t have nearly enough hipster cred to pull this kind of post off. You will probably have HEARD of these bands before. Which is why this post is based on what I am currently listening to a lot as opposed to being something like the “Top Ten BEST Albums of All Time. Period.” So, I open myself to judgment and would love to be able to open your eyes to at least one awesome new song along the way. I would also love to hear some suggestions back, because I am well aware that I am hardly musically omniscient.
The ten albums are in alphabetical rather than numerical order. You’ll see the band name first, and then the album title and a song or two I would particularly recommend, along with a link to listen to it. Convenient, right?
the bird and the bee
ray guns are not just the future
The Hazards of Love
(Picking one album is just hard since I love them all, but I would say that the Hazards of Love benefits the most from a listen all the way through since it’s one continuous story.)
(Like I said, it’s a continuous story so start from the beginning. However, if you’re too impatient for the largely silent prelude, start here.)
Florence + the Machine
The Glitch Mob
Drink the Sea
Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
(You really can’t go wrong.)
