So, guess what?! I’m going to Hawaii (specifically Kauai) in a few weeks with my family! I can hardly believe it. I guess it’s the same island Jurassic Park was filmed on too so, whatever, no big deal. Anyways! I’ve decided on this being my theme song because it sounds like it needs to be played chilling on the beach of tropical island, right?
For the past couple of months every time I was going to listen to Sucré, something else was released or leaked that stopped me from ever getting around to it. I finally listened to A Minor Bird this week and it’s stunning. Stacy’s vocals are better than they ever have been and Jeremy Larson more than lives up to his reputation as the go-to guy for making your songs as sweeping and beautiful as possible. Just listen to “When We Were Young” and I’m sure you’ll be searching for the full album pretty quickly.
I’m sick, so I have plenty of time to listen to some new music. If you feel so inclined, please either reply to this post or send me an ask with whatever albums you think I should listen to! It can be new or old and from whatever genre. I’d really appreciate it!
Some stuff I’ve been listening to:
YoungStatues' self-titled album is pretty great. I don't have it yet but I've listened to it a bit on Spotify. Pretty Girls Make Raves is my jam.
I finally bought High Violet by The National and holy smokes, I’m super into this band now. I actually hated them when I first listened to them too.
The new Gaslight Anthem single is getting a lot of listens. I swear, this band can do no wrong in my eyes. Handwritten is easily my most anticipated album this year.
Also, Kenny Vasoli (singer of The Starting Line)’s new project, Vacationer, is super good. I will probably love whatever music this guy makes anyway.
