Hey all! As some of you know, this past weekend (Friday to be specific) was my 27th birthday! I had one of the most memorable and fun birthdays in awhile! Thank you again to all my family and friends that made that happen. Love you all!
Hey everyone, sorry I’m so late to posting this today – had a nutsssss day at work! Anyways, here we are. Today is an EXTREMELY special day because it is April 14th, the day my darling younger sister, Jordana Nicholson was born! She is 23 today and more beautiful than ever! I mean, have you even looked at her photos lately?!
Alright, alright. I’m done…for now. I just can’t help myself. She is as beautiful inside as she is out, and she can bake a meeeeeean cupcake, along with anything else food related. She’s got style for days, including legs for days (haha) and she’s selfless, caring, funny and an amazing sister, daughter and wife. I could go on and on. I am so proud of her and all she has accomplished. :)
SO, today’s Monday Playlist is in honour of my dearest baby sister. Some of her faves, some of my faves…some of OUR faves. Hope you enjoy ’em! (There are 50 tracks, so you’ll never get bored….hahahahaaaaa)
Carousel came my way about a month ago, via SoundCloud. It was their dreamy track, ‘Wolf’s Awake‘ that lured me in. Since then, I’ve been listening to them almost regularly. Fortunately for me, they were in Charlotte last night and I had the privilege of seeing them live. Having recently just listened to their newest EP “Palms” (It came out last year, I am just late, ha), I was especially stoked to see them do a live performance. The guys opened for Cherub – which I was equally as stoked to see – being from Nashville and all. Carousel went above and beyond my expectations! Great stage presence, really dancy, mellow vibes to their songs. Just so good. They were hands down my favourite of the night. (Sorry, ProbCause and Cherub! You all ruled too though.)
If you’re into melodic vocals, light synths and fun poppy-beats, then you’ll love Carousel. They’ve been compared to Passion Pit for their gossamer-type of music and airy style, but who they really remind me of is Gypsy & The Cat and Mackintosh Braun. Two bands that I love! So, it wasn’t hard for me to become hooked on this band.
Check ’em out for yourself, listen to their whole Palms EP here:
