A few of my current favorites (sidenote: I did not watch any of the videos so I apologize if there is anything wrong with them--I just love the music):
The Civil Wars - Poison and Wine
Why I love it: It's gorgeous. Beautiful voices (especially his)!
Good for: When you have conflicting emotions and need pretty music playing in the background while you decide how you should feel (bonus points if it's a rainy day)
Frightened Rabbit - Swim Until You Can't See Land
Why I love it: They opened for Death Cab a few weeks ago and were so much fun!
Good for: Wearing a kilt and drinking a pint with friends
Awolnation - Sail
Why I love it: I don't have a choice--Michael listens to it 15 times a day. :) It's ok, I love it too. It's different than what we typically listen to. And I like that.
Good for: When you want to feel like a badass.
Foster the People - Pumped Up Kicks
Why I love it: The chorus is so catchy. You have two options with this song: You'll love it or hate it. I love it. Michael hates it.
Good for: Driving with the windows down on a hot summer day.
Nicki Minaj - Super Bass
Why I love it: It makes me want to dance.
Good for: Making everyone question your taste in music.
Have a great weekend!
