Nothing like a bit of Banjo in the morning

I’ve discovered the Oh Hellos, I might be a bit delayed, but man I love their sound! Sure they look funny, and they probably smell a little strange, but their content is deep and wide. This track is off the album Through the Deep Dark Valley, released in 2012. The band consists of two siblings, Maggie and Tyler from Texas. This is the only album they’ve released besides a Christmas album, but damn its good! The sound is comparable to Mumford and Sons, mixed with Of Monsters and Men (like, if these two bands had a one night stand, the Oh Hello’s would be their unexpected child). I hope you enjoy!

All aboard!!

Yeah, I shouldn’t be blogging on a Monday, but I’ve got this guy’s album, All the Little Lights, blasting through my pink Typo earphones, and I had to share the awesomeness with you.

Passenger (aka Mike Rosenberg) released Let her Go last year, being the slow-developer I am, I only heard it this morning, but I love it (thanks Lu for posting it on my wall, you are the best!!). I imagine myself driving long roads lined with fields to this music. He sounds like The Shins meets Mumford & Sons.

Take a listen , let me know what you think

Don’t Blink coz Relient K is back

When I was 15 years old, I listened to a track called “Pressing On”. Something deep resonated in my Christian-teenage self with the need to be unique, to push through in the path I’d chosen.
Since that day I’ve bought every Relient K album ever made.
I was somewhat disappointed with their last offering (Forget and not slow down) because it didn’t address the deep issues that they often work through in their songs.
I heard on Monday that amid some shaky ground (Ethan Luck announced he would be leaving the band, and their release date for the new album keeps getting pushed back) they WILL be releasing their new album, Collapsable Lung this year (June hopefully)

Here’s a sampler so long (I’m enjoying the new sounds I must say)
