I’m not a country fan, but…

13 Sep

A taste of America while I’m on other side of the world:¬†Pretty Lights remixes John Denver’s “Country Roads”. In introduction is in order: Ravers, meet 70’s folk music. Country hippies- meet electronic music.

This isn’t your parents’ music

11 Oct

My trip home this weekend was filled with cider donuts, snowboard purchases, and seeing familiar faces. While my mom was cooking dinner the other night (nothing quite like a home-cooked meal), I played this song not thinking she was actually listening. I think my parents seriously doubt my tastes and knowledge of music sometimes because my mom was so pumped that I was listening to Bruce Springsteen, albeit a cover of his song. Florence (from Florence+the Machine) and Kid Harpoon collaborate here for “I’m Goin Down” and the result is a chill, catchy, revitalization.

Someone left a mixtape in the cd-player of my zipcar. The CD turned out to be pretty good, and I really enjoyed driving to this one. Classic. Feel-good-music for sure.

The Morning Benders “Dreams” (Fleetwood Mac cover)

5 Oct

I was in the middle of studying for my Statistics midterm, when this song came on my iPod. Evidently, this song takes way more precedence than my studying, so that must mean it’s really good…right? Right.

Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” reminds me of a roadtrip with Him this past summer, just us, the road and some mountains. The beginning of the video suggests “Let’s find some beautiful place to get lost,” which is precisely how I feel whenever I hear this song. The Morning Benders capture that feeling terrifically in this cover.

(One of the) Best Live Recordings

23 Sep

Youtube doesn’t do this song justice. “Lie in Our Graves” by Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds, recorded live at Radio City Music Hall will always blow me away. Maybe it’s a stretch to say that this is the best live recording out there, but each and every time I see Tim strumming (or more like making love to) his guitar, I get goosebumps. Their facial expressions show just how much they are in love with music, how much they are transported by sound, and how much they want to share their music with others. This is what music is about.
