Well folks, school is out for the summer! I now have free time to peruse music at my leisure, and bestow upon you the tunes that are piquing my interest! During the hot weather I definitely find myself gravitating towards country music; I can’t help it, there’s just something about a chorus that includes margaritas, jean shorts and goodnight kisses. However, since I’m exactly one day into my student/camper-free summer, the tunes this week aren’t deep fried yet. Watch out for that next week. For now, please enjoy my eclectic choices, which demonstrate how chaotic life has been the past two weeks as I entered grades, data and a sauna of a classroom.
Deptford Goth‘s Feel Real – If you’re into Bloc Party or The Postal Service, I think you’ll dig this song. It’s catchy, and reminds me of night time car rides, and goosebumps. Especially goosebumps inspired by night time car rides with crushes. What? TMI? Deal.
Sugar and the Hi-Lows‘ Two Day High – This is a super duper duo comprised of Amy Stroup and Trent Dabbs, both of whom you may know from the multitude of television shows that their songs have graced while they were solo artists. They recently opened up for Ingrid Michaelson, which is where I encountered them, and now I’m obsessed. Their whole album is like one long jazzy dinner party that you never want to end. So, yeah, buy it already.
Tom Odell‘s Long Way Down – Tom Odell is like the long lost friend you never knew you were missing. This song is stark, beautiful, and builds to one hell of a crescendo. The song is featured on the soundtrack for The Fault In Our Stars, and I’m never turning back.
