Between Two Speakers
I’ve been swamped with grad school, but frankly who isn’t up to their eyeballs in work these days? Until I can come up with a few more decent posts, I decided to share some tracks that have been getting me through my good and bad days (totally stole this from Steve Lamacq). Enjoy!
“Two Trees” by FOALS
The lyrics and music on this track work perfectly together. You think it would be a depressing song, but on the contrary, it’s very uplifting. It’s definitely one of my favorites off of “Total Life Forever.” Such a spectacular album! I’m excited to be seeing them live next month. It’s been too long.
“Let’s Go Surfing” by The Drums
Whenever I listen to “Let’s Go Surfing,” it automatically puts me in a good mood. This is one I’ve been playing in the mornings. It’s get you going, for sure!
“If You Return” by Maximum Balloon featuring Little Dragon
Yesterday, I bought Maximum Balloon’s debut album. I’m really impressed by the collaboration between Dave Sitek and the various artists. This is one track I’ve been listening to over and over again. I LOVE it! I also love the visuals. If I could marry this song, I would, but I’m sure that’s frowned upon in some states.
“Sax and Violins” by Talking Heads
I’ve been listening to Talking Heads a lot lately. I think it’s well known that I love David Byrne, but this track in particular is constantly stuck in my head and I can only hear David singing it. I think the lyrics are brilliant too.
So what songs do you listen to on your good or bad days? Feel free to share them in the comments.
