It seems like every single week, I’m listening to a new style of music. It starts with one band, and then some searching and then next thing you know, I’ve got an entirely huge playlist to listen to of a completely new genre. First of all, I’ve been incredibly obsessed with fun. a lot. I’ve been listening to it, trying to learn some stuff on keyboards and just becoming generally obsessed. I just love the sound of it and the voice and the harmonies and everything about the music, just really gets my blood flowing.
So, the other night, I did some looking for Similar Artists on last.fm and I found a lot that I had already known about and a few, which I’m most impressed with, that I had never heard of before. It’s resulted in the same type of music playing over and over again for days now. I just can’t get enough of this indie/pop-punk/folk-y type of music. I don’t even know what to call it.
Let’s go through some of the stuff that’s absolutely topping my list right now:
- Rivers and Roads
The Head and The Heart
- All of the Drugs
- Lakes of Pontchartrain
The Be Good Tanyas
- Girl U Want
- Weeping Willow
The Hush Sound
- One Foot
And when I haven’t been listening to the indie/pop-punk/folk-y type of music, I’ve been listening to nothing but dubstep. I don’t know what it is about dubstep that has me so in love with it. Maybe it’s because it’s a type of music that you can’t help but feel in every bone and every muscle and even the tiniest of ligaments. Maybe it’s because no matter how quiet you have your stereo, the bass throbs beneath your seat. Maybe it’s any number of things.
The kids even like dubstep, which I’m always surprised by, especially Kaeidyn – who normally chooses whatever is popular with the other kids at school. Like Katy Perry and Carly Rae Jepsen. But, I was smart and discovered a whole bunch of Transformers-esque songs, and now they’re all obsessed.
- My Name is Skrillex
SkrillexThe kids absolutely love this song. They often replace the Skrillex with their own name or Optimus for Optimus Prime 😉
- Optimus Prime
DaggaAgain, the kids love this one. They all scream “Transformers”, almost as soon as this song starts…
- For Sex
Mt. EdenI don’t know if this is actually what any of these songs are called, but that’s what they are called on my Grooveshark playlist…
- Transformers (Skrillex Remix)
SkrillexAnother one that the kids go nuts over. I swear they know it’s Skrillex too!
- Internet Connection
Flux PavilionThis song just always gets me. The second it comes on, I swear my inner self wants to become a pop and locker desperately.
So, that’s some of the awesome stuff we’ve been listening to this last week or so. What’s been on your coming-into-the-New-Year, playlist?
