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.

“Wolves without Teeth” by Of Monsters and Men

“We Sink” by Of Monsters and Men

Some newer stuff? :

“Glorious Morning” by Waterflame

“Tribe Society” by Kings

“Creation” by True Noir

Just Another Music Monday

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

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)

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: Troubled Tuesday Edition

I know it’s Tuesday, but this past weekend my laptop of three years, my baby, died and I haven’t been able to do much other than work. I’ve been working everyday, I have no time to celebrate the holiday season or prepare – and I’ve been trying. You know that time management thing people are always talking about? I’m actually doing it. But it’s not easy, and I’m missing my alone time.

So without further ado, here are some wintry-feeling songs to reflect my melancholic mood this Tuesday.

Tori Amos – “Winter”

The Cinematic Orchestra – “To Build a Home”

Israel Kamakawiwo’ole – “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

Chantal Kreviazuk – “All I Can Do” (I was going to recommend “Waiting for the Sun” but somehow I can’t find it on Youtube!?! So have a different dose of this talent)

Nico – “These Days”

Birdy – “Skinny Love” (my preferred version)

And I may have recommended this one before, but I don’t care; give it another go too:

Sigur Ros – “Isjaki”

 

Happy Tuesday.
