Want to know what I've been putting on my iPod recently?
Mat Kearney: City of Black and White
(I bought this album because we went to see Keane in concert and Mat was one of the openers. It's awesome music to listen while walking to school.)
Dark was the Night: A Red Hot Compilation
I heard about this album from C a couple months ago and surprisingly found that my co-worker had a copy of the album. After listening to it for about 3 weeks straight whenever I was at work, I figured I'd by my own copy. It has some of my favorite artists-The Decemberists, Feist, Ben Gibbard, Iron and Wine, Sufjan Stevens and of course, our city celebrity, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.
Coconut Records: Davy
I stumbled upon Davy through work again. Although it's a short album (only 10 songs) it's very sweet. The first song 'Microphone' is adorable.
Camera Obscura: My Maudlin Career
This is another band that C got me hooked on. This album is so sad. There's a song called 'James' that these lyrics- "Oh can't you see that you belong with me?...Oh James, you broke me, I thought I knew you well."
Isn't that just heart-breaking?! These song lyrics are unbelievable.
The Daredevil Christopher Wright: In Deference to a Broken Back
My sister has known these boys for 5+ years and was always playing their music. I totally support them since they're another local band and I always find myself listening to this album when I'm driving the car.
Ray LaMontagne: Gossip in the Grain
When I was scouring his website, I saw that he's going to be in Minneapolis on November 13th...unfortunately, it's sold out. Although, we'll feel like we're at his concert when we are at our reception since we could play all of this album and be perfectly content.
Feist: The Reminder
I bought this album right before we went on vacation and I haven't gotten tired of it yet. It is purely wonderful.
Do you have any music recommendations to share?
