It’s that time again. MIXTAPE TiME.
Music is really one of the coolest things on the planet. With just a handful of notes, musicians communicate the vast array of human emotion in a poetic form that resonates so deeply it causes people to say “Wow. Me too."
One of my favorite questions to ask is "What’s your favorite song?"
Usually people respond by saying "Oh gosh! Just one?! For all time or just for right now?” I think this is because we go through so much change in our lives and different seasons bring about different emotions and thus… our penchant for a certain song or musical style changes right alongside ourselves.
Currently… I’m in a bluegrassy stage and I’m not sure exactly what that says about me. Except maybe that I went to a music festival last weekend that highly favored bluegrassy music BUT I DIGRESS. Maybe it means I’ll meet a man with a beard soon WHO KNOWS.
One band I’ve been diggin’ lately is called St. Paul and the Broken Bones. They’re not on Spotify, so they’re not on the playlist, but you should check them out anyway. Take special note of the Judah and the Lion stuff this week. I saw them last night at 40 Watt and it was amazing! I imagine these guys are on the cusp of becoming huge so… be a bandwagonner early ;)
