The song Tahiti has a sound that could be compared to that of Florence from Florence and the Machine. However the song is also drastically different with more of a traditional choir feel during the chorus.
Jah Didn’t Kill Johnny by Sage Francis is not only funny and really chill, but it also makes me want to dance. This song has a really cool earthy Bob Dylan feel (it’s the harmonica) and a more modern feel hidden in it as well. This is currently my favorite song and it’s been on repeat forever. I think I’m addicted.
In Young and Cold, The Raveonettes managed to capture not only a twang folky sound, but also a slight rock sound. I really like how they intertwined a bit of piano in the song as well. All around this song really comes together to be something amazing.
Fiction might be my new favorite The xx song. This is a song I can really connect to from the rhythm to the lyrics. The xx has just outdone themselves on Coexist all around. Really I recommend anything to do with The xx.
Lish’s post of the week: How Six Songs Collide by Norwegian Recycling
Since I didn’t post last week, I’m making it up to you guys with two songs, one today and one tomorrow. This song isn’t something I would normally post, but I had to share it. This six songs in this mix are:
I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, Collide by Howie Day, Superman by Five For Fighting, Always Getting Over You by Angela Ammons, All That I Need by Boyzone, and Here Without You by 3 Doors Down.
Too often song mix-ups can sound forced, or like the originals were altered too much to make it work. But here, an extremely smooth mix-up is accomplished with all six songs. Talk about skill!
Broken Bones by Aqualung is a beautiful song. I really like how this song conveys a friendship between three people. I feel like every other song I listen to is just a love song, so this song is really refreshing.
