Hello! We’re now in a post-election world, so YAY. While I try not to get too preachy or go into politics on this blog, I’m glad that the man I voted for is our president for another four years.
Anywho, back to the original point of this post. Time for some new music! It wasn’t too long that I posted my fall playlist, but of course I’ve already added a couple of new songs to it.
Sleeping by The Swell Season
This isn’t a new song by any means, but I kinda fell in love with it all over again a couple of weeks ago and had to add it to my playlist. I’ve loved The Swell Season (and Glen Hansard’s other band, The Frames) since I saw Once back in college. It’s a bit on the sad side but I can’t stop listening to it.
I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons
Ok, so I already have one Mumford and Sons song on this playlist BUT, it’s from their first album. This song is from their new one, Babel. And I’m kinda obsessed with it, so it’s being added.
Dream Song by Ben Gibbard
I’ve listened to Ben Gibbard’s new solo album, Former Lives, a few times and have decided that this is by far my favorite song on it. The album as a whole is surprisingly upbeat, which I think surprised a lot of people. I guess a lot of fans expected the following equation: Gibbard + divorce = sad bastard music. That’s definitely not the case, though. Also if you haven’t seen his music video for the song Teardrop Windows, please do because it’s adorable and hilarious.
What have you been listening to lately? I’m always open to more music suggestions!
