In order to give this blog some semblance of cohesion (and to force me to post at least once a week about something I’m passionate about) I’ve decided to introduce a new segment. Here are some curated tracks that I’ve discovered that I want you to listen to, and enjoy. Happy listening! :)
P.S. You can listen to them in any order you want, I just post them as I remember them.
1. Possibility (TASQA remix) – Lykke Li
The only good thing that comes out of the Twilight movies is the soundtracks, and the subsequent remixes. Here’s a dubsteppy version of the gorgeous track by Swedish singer Lykke Li:
2. Young – Air Review
Air Review is this indie band from Texas, if I’m not mistaken that creates adorable music. Listening to them always puts a smile on my face, and this is a really good track by them.
3. Let Her Go – Birdy
Birdy is this 17 year old English musician who a) has impeccable taste in covers and b) has this beautiful, deep voice that gives all her music a haunting touch that’s lovely. She covers the Passenger song for BBC Live Lounge, and it’s great.
4. Beyond Reason (ft. Coma) – Ghosts of Paraguay
I found this track randomly once while in the search of new music, and liked it so much that I kept in my music library. I personally really enjoy soft dubstep/chillstep, especially when it’s cold and snowy outside. It gives the day a little character, but maybe that’s just me.
5. Pull Me Down – Mikky Ekko
Most may recognize him from that great Rihanna track, Stay but his own material is really wonderful too. The lyrics are interesting, as are his vocals. It’s the perfect track for when you just want to hang out at home and relax.
6. Best Day of Your Life – Katie Herzig
And, in an effort to end this first post on a happy note, one of my favorite tracks by Katie Herzig. You’ve no doubt heard her music at some point (she’s featured on a lot of television shows) and this is a really fun song by her, and I love the incorporation of strings into it. Overall great song.
