Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

I was very surprised when Brian recommended that I listen to Frank Turner, mostly because I never thought Brian liked that kind of music. There is always something to learn about each other even after a few years. What was no surprise is that I would love his music; the songs are a combination of funk and pop mixed together in catchy love sonnets and I cant get enough. My favorite album is Tape Deck Heart, this is definitely one of the most listened songs on my ipod, with Recovery as close second.

What kind of love music do you listen to?

I hope everyone has had an amazing holiday break. Brian and I had a whirlwind of fun visiting family and then getting away for a few days, I will share a lot more tomorrow.

We spent a lot of our time driving to and from family and after running out of podcasts we switched over to pandora and our music collection. My favorite was listening to She & Him’s album, Classics, which is filled with soothing remedies and perfect for holiday listening (their Christmas album is pretty awesome too!). I was really happy to find out they produced a very cute music video with one of my favorite songs “Stay Awhile.”

What do you think?

How were your holidays and New Years?

I am over all a bigger fan of raspy deep mens voices in songs, but for some odd reason the last few weeks I have been continually listening to a variety of womens vocal songs. There is something almost soothing about it that I enjoy in these cold (almost) winter days that I can listen easily with a big hot cup of tea.

This song and all of Lera Lynn’s music has been on repeat in my house, but Sarah Jarosz and Amanda Shires pops up a lot too!

What is the type of music you listen to when you need some time to just relax and stay warm?

I was listening to The National radio station on Pandora with Brian and this song came on and half way through Brian and I looked up at each other and were impressed with what we were listening to. This is why I love Pandora, I probably would have never heard this song otherwise.

Milky Chance is a german folk group made up of Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch. They met in high school in a music class and have been playing music together ever since. I think I might be the last to hear of them since their 2015 North America Tour is practically sold out.

What do you think of this song? Catchy, right?

I heard this song for the first time over this weekend and fell in love. The minute I was home I jumped right on to my computer to look for more. So far all of Sarah Jarosz’s music has been heaven to  my ears. I love her folk rhythm and the quiet cello, guitar and fiddle playing in the background for most of the songs. I am obviously not the first to fall in love with this singer as she just received 2 grammy nominations as well. Can you believe this girl is only 22?

If you like this song you should take a listen to the rest of her most recent album Build Me Up From Bones.

I dont know why I have not posted this song before but I LOVE LOVE LOVE this music video. Just brings a big smile to my face and warm fuzzy feeling in my heart.

There have been many evenings where Brian and I would lay down on the couch and spend an hour or more just listening to the bands many records. This song is from their album Im Wide Awake Its Morning, which is one of my favorites, but I also really like Digital Ash in a Digital Urn.

I dare you to watch this video only once 🙂
