Just Another Music Monday

Spring is here never coming.

So yesterday I decided to make a compilation of soft indie rock that’s slightly depressing, because this is my favourite stuff to listen to in the Spring when I’m feeling slightly hopeful but want to feel slightly hopeless and a little depressed, because it’s just more comfortable to be that way.

Especially when it’s still -20°C (if it’s not above zero it may as well be minus a hundred) and I have anxiety over silly things and I have too many bills to pay and I’m just not FEELING it. Ya know? (Also I watched Secret Life of Walter Mitty and I love those movies, but they only make me feel sorrowful – but still not as bad as one would feel watching “UP”)

Anyway, here’s the CD line up:

  1. “Brother” by Mighty Oaks
  2. “Hopeless Wanderer” by Mumford & Sons (Okay, this song makes me laugh because of the amazing video. But it still fits the mix tape requirements)
  3. “Blood” by The Middle East
  4. “Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men
  5. Skinny Love” by Birdy (I actually don’t even like this song, but I love Birdy’s voice and it helps me to feel sadness)
  6. “I Lost Myself” by Laruen Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk
  7. “Dying Day” by Brandi Carlile
  8. “Your Rocky Spine” by Great Lake Swimmers
  9. “Just One Day” by Mighty Oaks
  10. “Your Bones” by Of Monsters and Men
  11. “Youth” by Daughter
  12. “Bugs” by O’Death
  13. “The Chain” by Ingrid Michaelson
  14. “Stranger at the Gate” by Passenger & Pilot
  15. “Hand Grenade” by The Almost
  16. “Things That Stop You Dreaming” by Passenger
  17. “Rivers and Roads” by The Head and the Heart
  18. “Paint” by The Paper Kites
  19. “Get on the Road” by Tired Pony
  20. “Lost Coastlines” by Okkervil River

Just Another Music Monday

“Paint” by The Paper Kites

See where I am is where I’m wanting to be,
I know what I need, know what I need
And there are many different places to see
I know how to dream, know how to dream
Still there’s a wound and I’m moving slow
Though it don’t show, though it don’t show
I’ve got a hole where nothing grows,
How little you know little you know

“Isjaki” by Sigur Ros

“Born at the Right Time” by Dappled Cities

We never had to fight
for the world we would’ve liked
The war’s already won
I guess I was just born at the right time

“In the Middle of the Night” by Chloe Foy

“Spaceship” by Miss Li

So, have you heard the news today?
If you listen closely, you’ll hear his heart break.
Cause in the psycho world of Eden,
this is the version where she is the snake.

“Little Letters” by Paper Aeroplanes

“Christabel” by Dems

I wished I’d
not found you
beneath that
forest tree

“Blew My Mind” by Dresses

“Drink Drank Drunk” by Jack Moy & Glöden

Sick of the people telling me not to hide behind my sunshades

Sick of the people telling me not to drink on a Sunday

Sick of the people telling me not to run or go my own way

go my own way

Just Another Music Monday

As I wait for the next indie rock playlist to be uploaded to a much frequented website,  I put a few old favourites on my own fall playlist.  Check out these for a little taste of my Monday:

Raymond & Maria’s “The Fish Are Swimming Slower Every Year

Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Chain

CAMERAS’S “Break/Hands

The Rural Alberta Advantage’s “Stamp

Okay…I could go on forever!  But those are some tunes that can carry you through the rest of the day…and maybe inspire your music throughout the week.
