I've decided that since Monday is clearly the worst day of the week unless it's a long weekend, from now on it will be declared Music Monday. I'm a bit of a music junkie so I will share with you some of my current faves. Next time I'll stick to some kind of general theme with my picks. So here goes. I linked the titles up to YouTube because I'm fancy. Let me know whatcha think. Or don't.
To Build a Home- The Cinematic Orchestra
These guys do a ton of instrumental stuff, but this song is so beautifully written it makes me sick. That piano... Yikes. It hurts my heart. It's an older song but I admit it brings me to tears on a semi-regular basis so I thought I would share.
These guys are a couple of DJ's from France, with some heavy use of piano and the sax. You don't hear a lot of sax these days, they made awesome use of it. I'm generally not into house music, but this song screams 'summer' and I love it.
Mama- The Glorious Sons
A fairly new Canadian band that is definitely worth checking out. This is another song that makes me long for summer, or else that's just my I've had enough winter depression kicking in. If you wanna know more about them, check out their website. Fingers crossed they continue to make great tunes.
Never Wanna Know- MØ
This lady is Danish, and it took me about 10 minutes to make that fancy O in her name. She is the voice in Aviici's song 'Dear Boy', that's about all I know about her, I should dig a little deeper before I start bloggin'. She's got a few solid songs out there, worth looking into. If you like her sound, check out 'Waste of Time' and 'XXX 88'
Do I Wanna Know?- The Arctic Monkeys
I had a chance to see them live last year when they opened for The Black Keys and they were amazing. I've already posted once about this song, because it's my favourite thing to listen to lately. Some might say it's quite the sexy tune. I can't get enough of it. The lead singer was wearing a head to toe Adidas sweatsuit which was very ballsy. This entire album, AM, is really good.
Red Lights- Tiesto
Again, I will say that I am not a huge house or club music person, but here's one last one for you. A year ago I wouldn't be caught dead listening to a DJ, but it seems that my music horizons are broadening. Aviici opened my eyes! This is just another happy summer song. The snow is melting, life is good.
That's enough for now. Don't want to get too carried away my first week. Enjoy.
