I’ve found that the busier I am, the less music I get to listen to. And lately I’ve been super busy, but have made a goal to try to listen to music more often (maybe I’ll start bringing headphones to work to get a half hour or so of music in). The change of seasons always ignites my brain and ears to certain songs, artists and types of music. Usually summer is more upbeat, and the transition into fall makes me listen to more laid-back indie tracks or, oddly enough, my old favorite bands. I guess fall reminds me of high school football games with friends, and I get all nostalgic and find myself listening to some embarrassing (or awesome) albums. Here’s what I’m listening to this October. What about you?
Daughter- “Youth”– It’s hard not to fall in love with lead singer Elena’s vocals. If you’re a fan of a more relaxed Florence and the Machine, you need to check Daughter out.
Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova- “Falling Slowly”– I’m a fan of songs with a male/female duo, except for crap like the Black Eyed Peas. I love the relaxing and heartfelt tone of “Falling Slowly”.
Lorde- “Royals”– This chick is 16- SIXTEEN! She reminds me a lot of Lana Del Rey, so I’m hooked.
Miley Cyrus- “Wrecking Ball”- Judge away, but this is a good song. No, I’m not a huge Miley, but even I can admit that she did a good job writing this emotional song. As for the video… ehhhh at least Miley’s makeup looks good.
Young Statues- “Spacism”– This song reminds me of drives to and from my college. Something about it just makes me happy, even though it’s not necessarily a happy song.
The Neighbourhood- “Sweather Weather”– I’ve been obsessed with this song since the summer, but it only seems fitting now since it’s technically “sweater weather”.
The Early November- “A Stain on the Carpet”– Maybe I’m just SUPER excited that my boyfriend got me tickets to see their 10-year album concert, but I’ve been enjoying this song lately. Plus, when I inevitably spill some wine on our nice carpet, I can belt out the lyrics, “I spilled red wine on the carpetttt”.
fun.- “Sight of the Sun”– This song, which appeared on the soundtrack of Girls, is the token happy song of this playlist.
Imagine Dragons- “Demons”– Imagine Dragons are on my must-see list- if only they weren’t in the middle of an overseas tour right now. If you haven’t downloaded “Night Visions” yet, get on it!
