Alright, so I'd really hoped to have had something else to blog about between music posts this week, but for the most part I've been inside, and my mood has been pretty low (boooo) so more music it is!
Maybe soon I will have Done Something soon, and can then blog about it here!
For the time being, here's some music.
This week, I ended up listening to two American indie folk bands...
I think I heard about this band through Random Googling. Some of their music has a bit of a retro sound to it, and overall it calls up memories of long ccar journeys through the countryside. Their songs are pretty relaxing to listen to, and have nice lyrics.
YouTube suggested this band to me when I was listening to Fleet Foxes, so I decided to check them out afterwards. One thing to note is the beautiful scenery in their videos. The lyrics aren't so clear - I had to crank the volume up - but the vocalist has a really calming voice! I can imagine listening to their music on one of those quiet spring days, when the rain is falling, and just chilling out to it.
Am noticing a lack of music from certain parts of the world on my 'listen to' list--Africa, Central/Latin/South America, the Middle East, and Asia (except for Japan and South Korea; have plenty of suggestions from those countries!)
So if anyone knows of acts from these places - any genre or era - please tell me so I can give them a listen!
