Car jams

December 16, 2012

I haven’t been good at posting in a long while, so here’s two weeks worth of my driving in the car music.

Florence and The Machine- Unplugged:  Need I say more?

Ben Folds and Nick Hornby- Lonely Avenue  The amazing team up of one of my favorite artists and one of my favorite novelists.  🙂

The Civil Wars- Barton Hollow   This is what Country music is supposed to sound like.  

Ingrid Michaelson- Boys and Girls  Cheerful pop songs about difficult things, and also Love.

Laura Cortese- Simple Heart-  An amazing fiddler and an awesome voice.  She covers a Feist song, and I have a signed copy. Just sayin’.

Foster The People- Torches-  Indie/Electronic whiz kids!  One of my favorite albums from last year.

Cee-Lo’s Magic Moment-  Cee-Lo Green does Christmas, and I couldn’t be more excited about a Christmas album.

The Hunger Games Soundtrack-  A great mix of folksy awesome including:  The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Glen Hansard, The Decemberists, The Civil Wars, Pistol Annies, The Low Anthem, Arcade Fire, and others…

Death Cab For Cutie-Narrow Stairs  Still what I like to consider Ben Gibbard and co’s Pet Sounds.

The Decemberists- Hazards of Love-   Folk group takes on the Rock Opera and Rocks!

Kate Miller-Heidke- Curiouser- A great pop songstress with Opera training.  It’s as unusual as “Politics in Space,”  easily my favorite track. 🙂
