Just Another Lazy Monday

How can I be so lazy as to not post in half a year. Here’s music. You’ve probably already heard it. But these are actually a few of my favourite bands. Be back soon.

“Brighter than the Sun” by Brick + Mortar

Every Brick + Mortar song is gold. Can honestly say favourite band.

“Train” by Brick + Mortar

Okay this video is honestly amazing. I’ve watched it fifty times.

Just Another Music Monday

Probably most of these songs aren’t new to everyone, but they helped get me through a busy time at work and are continuing to improve my day!

“Lifted Up (1985)” by Passion Pit

Oh well, how many years has it been now?
How many days went to waste?
Now the rain and the thunder are clashing
The Sun’s got a smile ‘cross the face
Oh, but yeah I’m so tired
I fight so hard and come back beaten
Beacon, burn through it brightly
Soared through a sliver of space

“Winter is Coming” by Firewoodisland
(I don’t know half the words but I sing along anyway.
Can someone get on these lyrics, please?)

“Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon
I enjoy this fun tune almost as much as their “Anna Sun”
This band definitely needs to keep producing these catchy, FUN, dance-y songs!

“What Kind of Man” by Florence + the Machine

But I can’t beat you
Cause I’m still with you
Oh mercy I implore
How do you do it
I think I’m through it
Then I’m back against the wall

What kind of man loves like this

“No Room in Frame” by Death Cab for Cutie

Was I in your way
When the cameras turned to face you?
No room in frame
For two
And how can I stay
In the sun
When the rain flows
All through my veins
It’s true

“The Road You Didn’t Take” by Stornoway

There is something dark and beautiful and magical about this song. *Repeat*

Get high up on the mountain
Feel your lungs start burning as you rise
Sometimes when you get to this height
You will see another hill to climb
But sometimes all you can see
When you look down the other side
It’s the road you didn’t take
The road you didn’t take
It’s the road you didn’t take
The road you didn’t take

“Monkey Tree” by Mother Mother

Do not ask me what my obsession with this band is – I can’t explain it.
Although it probably has something to do with their weirdness…

Tied to the rat race,
A big bird in a small cage.
You’re tied with a tightrope,
And you wiggle but it won’t let go.
You wanna be a free bird,
You wanna be a free lover, see
You gotta run from the shepherd.
Run, run away with me.

I’d rather be a hammer than a nail
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

Looking Too Closely by Fink

El Condor Pasa (If I could)

Walk Unafraid covered by First Aid Kit

Honesty by Fink

To a Poet by First Aid Kit

How can I be
What I want To be?
When all I want to do is strip away
These stilled constraints
And crush this charade
Shred this sad masquerade

Just Another Music Monday

My love affair with Indie Rock will never end – here are some tunes from the November Playlist that I have been dying to share….just slacking off in the generosity department apparently (that and writing in general…tsk tsk).

One of my favourite bands, Brick + Mortar have another stellar (or Hollow?) tune

A hollow tune, within the fire.
I feel them breathe, so uninspired.
My broken hands my weary bones,
I sit my words beside my throne.
You’re not alone. I’m not alone. (Brick + Mortar)

I crank this song by Bad Suns every time I’m driving

Grab my bag and bring me into the ocean, take my love and run
The tide rolls in void of all emotion, take my love
Oh, break my heart, disintegrated what would be
Yeah, take my love, you might as well listen to me (Bad Suns)

Love the warmth in Catey Shaw’s voice

and the roof that I’m standing on feels like an airplane
city streets below me moving far away
what I wouldn’t give to be there now
I’ll find my way to you somehow (Catey Shaw)

One of my other favourite songs right now by Mother Mother

How’d I ever get so off my rocks?
How’d I ever get so lost
Everybody out there on the job, but not me oh no
How’d I ever get so indiscreet, how’d I ever get so freakly
Everybody out there on a leash
But not me (Mother Mother)

This song speaks for itself

What you don’t know won’t hurt you, yeah
Ignorance is bliss
I’m a happy idiot
Waving at cars.
I’m gonna bang my head to the wall
‘Till I feel like nothing at all
I’m a happy idiot
To keep my mind off you. (TV On the Radio)

Really enjoying this jam by Adam French – even in its repetitiveness

I never asked, but I always wondered
just why you’re here
when there’s so much more to life (Adam French)
