catching up

Been awhile. Let’s talk musics.

“Call it Dreaming”- Iron & Wine
I missed this version of Sam Beam. This is a perfect song.

“If You Need To, Keep Time On Me”- Fleet Foxes
This is very lovely. I’m glad to have new songs like this from Fleet Foxes.

“Heaven I Know”- Gordi
Pretty enamored with this song lately.

“Lady May”- Tyler Childers
I have listened to this a socially inappropriate number of times the last day or so. Thanks, Aaron.

“Need to Feel Your Love”- Sheer Mag
Consider this your Summer Struttin’ song.

“The Gold”- Manchester Orchestra
Yes, I like this. Very much.

“Glad It’s Raining”- James Vincent McMorrow
Have I made an entire 45 minute commute with just this song playing over and over? The answer is yes. You know that.

Monday Links

On Twitter and Facebook I share links each day to various stuff that I think is great and/or worth people’s time. But not everyone that comes here is on Twitter or Facebook, so I gather up the best of those links each Monday and post them here so everyone can get in on the fun. If you’ve missed any of the past Monday Links (or just want to waste some time), check out the archive here.

Add Middle Kids to the list of artists that should cover whatever song they damn well please.

Joan Shelley: still the most lovely.

Fionn Regan and The Staves rehearsing in a hallway. Sure, yes.

This Julia Jacklin Tiny Desk Concert is a good way to spend 15 minutes.

This tune is quickly climbing up my list of favorite tunes of 2017.

File this Cataldo song under ‘Things That Make Me Smile Every Time.’

Same goes for this one from Pickwick.

Very much a fan of this Oh Wonder tune all stripped down.

Posted a bunch of summer mixes last week. Here’s a playlist with all 146 songs from the 6 mixes in one place. Click here to listen to/follow the playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!

summer soul – a mix

Nothing sounds quite as good as old soul songs (and like one new one that sounds old) on a hot day, I’d say. Click here to listen to/follow the playlist on Spotify. Enjoy.

summer drive – a mix

Summer is for road trips. This mix is made to soundtrack such things. I’m only a little sorry if this ends up being the soundtrack to you getting a speeding ticket. Click here to listen to/follow the playlist on Spotify. Enjoy.

summer nights – a mix

Below is one of the better flowing mixes I’ve ever put together, I think, perfect for back patios and citronella candles and late night conversations with friends. Click here to listen to/follow the playlist on Spotify. Enjoy.

summer days – a mix

Alright, now for my favorite mix I make each year. This is a mix of jams, even and especially that Carly Rae Jepsen one- don’t @ me SLASH don’t pretend you’re too cool for a wonderful pop song, and is best listened to while being a little reckless in the unrelenting sunshine. Click here to listen to/follow the playlist on Spotify. Enjoy!

summer mornings – a mix

Below is a mix of songs best heard listened to early in the morning, before the sun and heat take over, before the air conditioner is operating at max capacity and the cups start sweating, before summer starts throwing its weight around. So, grab some coffee (hot or cold, doesn’t matter), and press play. Enjoy.
