music to my ears.

oh friends, it's been a while since i've told you about some awesome new music.
music makes me happy. like seriously, i cannot operate without it. i think if i were stranded on a desert island, i would have to seriously have my ipod or a radio...i guess it would need to be solar powered too. hmm.
i digress.
so music, good for my soul. i love a wide range of music from christian to country, alternative to hip hop. the only thing i don't like is hard rock or metal. no thank you.
so in a few weeks, Holli and I want to start inviting you to share your favorite music finds as well. it could be anything about music.
we'll have a linky on Tuesdays for "Tuesday Tunes". more info will be coming soon, but go ahead and start thinking of the songs you want to chat about!!!
i just bought 3 new albums and i'm loving them.
i have gotten out of the habit of buying the whole album because lately, i've only liked one or two songs.
i can say for sure that i love every single song on all three of these!
so let's get to it.....

Of Monsters and Men - My Head Is An Animal

Song you may know: Little Talks
My favorite song on the album: Mountain Sound
Sounds like: to me, it's an older sound, but i super love it.
By far one of the best albums I've purchased in a while. I seriously like every single song.

Phillip Phillips - The World from the Side of the Moon

Song you may know: Home
My favorite song on the album: Get Up Get Down
Sounds like: I have to describe it as a mix between Mumford and Sons and Dave Matthews.
I had heard he was on American Idol but I never saw any of his performances. I have to say this is the first "Idol" album I have purchased, but it's absolutely wonderful. By far one of my favorites in a while.

Mumford and Sons - Babel

Song you may know: I Will Wait
My favorite song on the album: I Will Wait
Sounds like: jam-band meets banjo meets cool
I love this band. Beware...some of the songs have a little profanity. But of course if you're a fan, you'd know that already. Especially since one of their hits, Lion Man, is loaded with the F-bomb. However, if you can look past that, it's great!

all three are perfect driving music, background music, chilling music...really whatever.
you would be doing your ears an injustice if you don't at least listen to a few snippets.


  1. Cant wait to get this started. I love all of these bands too , well maybe not so much Philip Phillips. Two out of three aint bad.

  2. OH man I love Mumford & Sons so much! And the only song I know of Phillip Phillips' is "Home," but I love that song too. Maybe I should check out the rest of his CD!? I've never heard of the first one, but I'll look into that one too. Thanks for the suggestions! :)

  3. Does it date me that I don't know who these people are, or perhaps it's because I listen to what my 14 year old daughter wants to listen to.

  4. Hi,
