Whenever people ask me, â€œWhat type of music do you listen to?â€ Really- how could anyone answer that?? Are there people out there who really only listen to one kind of music? If I HAD to narrow it down my only reply would be, â€œgood musicâ€. So this month for my playlist I channeled a winter storm a few years ago where I was snowed into my Boston apartment for 3 days and had nothing to do but listen to good music. Living in sunny L.A. now I occasionally get nostalgic of those days. In honor of a time past I included a song by my favorite band of the last ten years, Circa Survive. Their new record, â€œDescencusâ€ is perfect and even though they keep doing the same things for some reason it keeps working. Without them I surely wouldnâ€™t be in music.
But anyways, it was finally raining and I decided to peruse one of my favorite blogs, @TinManLondon, where I stumbled upon my new favorite artist and Londonite, Jack Garrat. The perfect blend of human and electronicâ€¦ plus the kid has soul. It doesnâ€™t get much better than that! Speaking of soulâ€¦ Brooklynâ€™s up-and-comer SEIDS released her debut single where she sings her heart out about the sorrows of being in a new city. A feeling that I know many of us can relate to. If you arenâ€™t familiar with Nashvilleâ€™s electronic duo Basecamp, then you should immediately get familiar with their new single â€œShudderâ€ as it will certainly make you do just that.
Last but certainly not least, I had the great honor of seeing PPL MVR this monthâ€¦. a band that can be best described as an experience like no other. Complete with Sasquatch and Abominable Snowman costumes- you are sure to get a hoot out of watching first video.
Now snuggle up and enjoy!
