I have always LOVED music. And I have always felt like I was “in the know” on the new, cutting-edge bands. Until recently. Twice in the last two weeks friends have mentioned popular bands that I had never even heard of.
So I have come to realize, I am in serious need of some new music in my i tunes library.
What songs/artists are you listening to right now that I need to go check-out? (Oh, and please tell us all a little bit about song/artist so we can see if they peak our interest.)
So you can see how random my musical preferences are, here are two playlists I made over the holidays. Maybe (I doubt it) you’ll discover something new?
“Completely Random Mix“
I and Love and You – The Avett Brothers
(I listen to this one about 10 times before I move on to the rest of the mix. This song is ridiculously beautiful.)
Don’t Wanna Cry – Pete Yorn
You Really Got a Hold on Me – She and Him
When I Dream of Michaelangelo – Counting Crows
Landed – Ben Folds
Brooklyn – Wakey! Wakey!
Gotta Have You – The Weepies
Lost? – Coldplay
Blessed – Brett Dennen
Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show
City of Black and White – Mat Kearney
“The Christian Mix”
There Will Be a Light – Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama
Whenever God Shines His Light – Van Morrison
It is Well – Todd Fields
Hold My Heart – Tenth Avenue North
Reign in Us – Starfield
The Revelation Song – Kari Jobe
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing – Chris Rice
Arms Open Wide – Hillsong
Kingdom Coming – Shaun Groves

So come on…help a girl out. SAVE ME from becoming one of those un-hip folks who has no idea who what new music is out there.
