Over the past couple of months I’ve discovered both XM radio and Pandora radio. How did I go so long without listening to these two media? I’m particularly fond of The Spectrum on XM (channel 28) and Pandora changes based on my mood. I started listening to Phoenix Radio per my sister’s suggestion which has led me to Vampire Weekend. I seriously heart them.
So, first on my list is Vampire Weekend. I had the toughest time picking a song to include–Love Oxford Comma (Kristi–finally heard what you were talking about), Taxi Cab, Ottoman, Campus. But I’m going with a live version of M79:
Which leads me to Phoenix. I can’t help but dancing around when listening to them. I really want to share this Lisztomania video but embedding is disabled. So…If I Ever Feel Better:
On Phoenix Radio I discovered Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros. LOOOOOOOOVE Home. Love. (official video on YouTube)
And from Iceland comes Of Monsters and Men. Little Talks. Don’t you want to dance around a bit? Plus a really cool video! Definitely my favorite of the bunch.
Have you heard The Head and the Heart – Lost in My Mind? If you’re a fan of The Avett Brothers or even Mumford and Sons I think you’ll like this one:
And Alexander – A Million Years. Admittedly this video is a bit strange but. Your Love? It’s a holy shit? Yes, sometimes I feel like that, too. In a million years full of tears, but I found my girl. Sigh.
And finally, Somebody that I Used to Know by Gotye (featuring Kimbra). LOVE this song, though the video…I really am not sure what to say about it…
Ok no…I want to leave you with Kate Nash’s Merry Happy. Because it’s so very very happy. (but I think you need to head to YouTube to hear the song). So sad.
What songs have you been loving on lately? Do you have a favorite station on Pandora? Or do you have another music medium to recommend to me?
