It seems appropriate to carry on with the music theme this week since May is NZ Music Month. I can't think of a better idea than a month that celebrates music in all it's wonderful glory.
I love music. All kinds of music. In fact I'm probably something of a music junkie. And one of the things I love doing is discovering new songs to listen to and to share them with others.
So here's a random list of songs that I have been playing lately. Many of which you may not of heard but which I hope you might like and maybe even become addicted to - just like I have.
Cut My Hair by Luca Vasta
It was Amazon that got me onto this song; listed as it was as one of the songs to watch out for in 2013 and Luca Vasta as an artist on the rise. And I'm so glad I checked it out. Its boppy and catchy and a perfect head banging dance song. So click on the link below and see what you think
Haven't Had Enough by Marianas Trench
Another song that I have been playing on instant replay. I found this band courtesy of Teen Wolf and have fallen in love with this song and Stutter which I also recommend that you check out.
Another break out band that many are predicting as one of the bands to watch out for in 2013 and their debut record You Belong Here as a must buy. I have to say I agree and I've already got my copy.
Blowin' Smoke by Kacey Musgraves
I'm usually not much of a country music fan but for some reason this song appeals to me. Maybe it's because it's not as country as some but has a nice laid back feel to it.
Hold On by Alabama Shakes
These guys (and girl) are just awesome and so deserved last year's Grammy nominations which they or the Lumineers should of won but we won't go into that. All you need to know is that you have you check them out.
Bones by MS MR
I fell in love with this song earlier this year after hearing it on the Season 3 trailer for Game of Thrones. It's moody and soulful and the amazing lyrics are made even more so by the lead singer's voice. Their debut album has just been released overseas but until then have a listen to the video link below and see what you think
