YOU GUYS!!!! I apologize (a million times) for being late on my Monday Playlist! A day late….oops. Life has been so amazingly crazy, so so so good though! I am moving Friday into a new place along with spending a lot of time with my sweet boyfriend (yes, that’s correct, you read right.)…and well, WORK AND LIFE TAKE OVER!
Okay, enough of the dramatics, but really. Here’s the playlist, and it’s just one band I have been loving lately: Coral Bones! They simply cannot make a disinteresting song, at least in my opinion! Melodies, harmonies…guitar, vocals…all of it. So good.
So, here ya go, enjoy the tracks! Have a great Tuesday!
So, lately I’ve had this deliciously wonderful Cass McCombs tune stuck in my head. I wondered if there was a music video for it and low and behold…yes, there was! It’s quite simple, following around Cass at what seems to be a fair or outdoor event of some sort. Then, it gets real good at the end, showing some pretty bright lights and people dancing. If you know me, you know I love me some dancing! Anyways, make sure to watch it for yourself and the whole thing! You don’t wanna miss any of that yummy steel guitar sound towards the end. It’s beautiful.
Happy Monday everyone! I am currently laying on the couch trying to get some work done (stayed home today), tea in hand, tissue box beside me and essential oils readily available, because I have the worst cold right now. Ugh. It’s pretty sucky, but I’ll be okay – I’m a tough cookie! ;)
So, this playlist is just some of what I’ve been listening to lately and all this morning. Actually, I just adore Sun Kil Moon and listen to him a lot. But recently, they’ve been on heavy rotation. Anyway, here’s today’s “Sick Day” Playlist. Lots of beautiful classical guitar sounds and somber melodies. Enjoy! Xo
So, I haven’t stopped hearing and seeing all this chitter-chatter about Ryan Adams newest album which is Self-Titled. It dropped just this past Monday and this extremely talented American singer-songwriter has now released his FOURTEENTH studio album! FOURTEENTH! Guys..that’s almost half my age!
Let’s be honest, Adams never ceases to make amazing music. He has talent for daaaays. However, let me just state one thing. This album is not your happy, go-lucky, life is wonderful kind of album. It is definitely a lot more moody than his other ones. Concentrating on hardships, broken-heartedness and pain. The lyrics are somber, and I don’t think there’s an actual happy song on the record – which to some (optimists), could be be a downer. I myself am an optimist, however the musical genius behind these “love lost”, downcast tracks cover up most of it for me. So, no, I’m not bothered by it one bit – I mean, it’s a bummer, of course, to feel all the emotion in these tracks and know that it’s real. Real pain, real experiences and feelings – but, Adams has lured me in with his melodic ballads and bursts of electric guitar riffs. They’re catchy, passionate and raw, and I love that. I personally think that a lot of it is super reminiscent of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers – which, let’s be real – who doesn’t love them!?
My top 3 tracks on the album would have to be Track 1, “Gimme Something Good“, Track 2, “Kim“, and Track 5 “Wrecking Ball“. All of the tracks are great, but these are just my picks. I’d love to know your favourites in the comments!
So there you have it. My two cents on the album. But, you can read more on LA Times,here, or NPR, here...or Treble,here.
Today’s playlist is not of my own but of a very talented Brizzy (Brisbane) beat maker and remixer Callan Alexander, aka “CLN“. I love the vibeyness to his remixes, not to mention a great pick of songs. So, here ya go! Enjoy! :)
Happy Labour Day everyone! What an amazing weekend it’s been! I traveled to Nashville with my family to visit my sis and her husband and we ate all the good foods, had great conversations and just enjoyed one another’s company. Family is the best.
Here is today’s special Labour Day playlist! Hope you enjoy, and have a great day off!
