flowers in my teeth

I finally got this! I found it at my local record store which was a nice surprise because I never find records there (that aren’t overpriced).

Why did it take me so long to buy this?! I’m on my fourth listen now. “Misery” is just beautiful. The “Skinny Love” cover is better than I expected too. I want a whole album like this. Ah! I love this band!!!


2012 End Of The Year Lists

This list was really difficult to put together this year. I literally did some math to figure out what order to put them in. Anyways, I’m still pretty terrible at keeping up with new music, so don’t remind me of all the stuff I missed this year. I’m sure I’ll get around to ‘em eventually.

Music Recommendations

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:

  • Young Statues' 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.

Random Start: The Gaslight Anthem - Great Expectations

Yesterday I woke up with a song in my head and it was a Modest Mouse song but I couldn’t remember what it was called plus I was busy babysitting… like, all day. However, for some “random” and wonderful reason this morning I had these lyrics from Great Expectations stuck in my head:

"And they burnt up the diner where I always used to find her
Licking young boys’ blood from her claws”

Needless to say, I listened to this entire album already today because it’s perfect.
