Music Tuesday

Originally I had planned to give this post the snappier name of “Music Monday” butttt I got distracted, so this is what we’re left with.

A friend recently informed me that she’d read an article that stated that typically, people stop searching for new music once they hit 33. I’m calling major BS on this fact. I am quickly hurdling through time and space to the land of the 30 and I feel like, if anything, my music taste is better than it’s ever been.

Of course, we all have our nostalgia “partying with the b’yes” music that we love to throw down to from time to time (I love you, Justin Timberlake). But from day-to-day I tend to run pretty eclectic.

Here’s a sampling of music I’ve discovered just in the past few days.

I loved that this song is upbeat and fun, I was listening to it tonight while doing some housework.

I actually recommend checking out the full Andrew McMahon catalog. He’s been a new find of me and I think it’s fantastic. I love how it’s both heartfelt and upbeat.

Now let’s slow it down a little with a bit of alt-J. I’m a sucker for a gentle whistle in the middle of a song, especially when combined with a slow build.

If you don’t already love Florence, I’m not sure we can be friends. I love her and 97% of her music. I can’t wait to hear her new album in its entirety. 

Music Review – The Lumineers

As I am sure any of my friends will gladly tell you, my taste in music has definitely evolved over the years.  I’ve gone from strictly the poppiest of pop to a bit more of an eclectic mix of of folk/indie/rock (but that’s not to say you won’t see me heavily rocking out to Uptown Funk or some Taylor Swift in my car from time to time).

On my radar for a while now has been The Lumineers.  Their biggest hit thus far came out out a few years ago (Ho Hey), but the band is so much more than this one song.

I like the upbeat sounds of their music and the fact that most of the songs sound distinctly different, unlike a lot of other bands these days.

If you’re a ‘starter’ fan my highest recommendation would be to check out Stubborn Love and go from there, I dare you not to like it.
