This weeks Talk Music To Me Tuesday (#tm2t) is full of Indie songs. I wasn’t lying in the description, my entire Spotify is littered with indie music. What can I say, it’s my bread and butter. Many of the songs included this week are a few years old, however, we have sprinkled in a few very new songs. All deserve a listen or ten. Enjoy.
S.O.B. by Nathaniel Ratecliff & The Night Sweats
This song has an older, folk song sound to it. The lyrics are perfect for any long day where you have just had it up to your eyeballs. Push play, grab a drink, and listen.
Around U by Ellie Goulding
Fresh off of her new album that was released last Friday. Ellie continues with her light pop, indie sound, which continues to make me love her.
(not on Youtube yet, but go check out Spotify or iTunes)
Carry Your Will by The Mowgli’s
The Mowgli’s are an amazing band to listen to both on your iPod and in real life. They are beautiful performers from California, and are exactly what you would picture when thinking of a large band from California. The amount of musicians in this band seems excessive, but their music is bound to put you in a good mood. Carry Your Will especially lets you feel like everyone near you is there to help you out and have your back.
Dirty Paws by Of Monsters and Men
Coming straight outta Iceland, this indie band incorporates their own heritage into their songs. I read that Icelandic folktales incorporate animals as the main characters to help teach younger generations. Of Monsters and Men use their native folklore examples and put them into song. The band stays true to their homeland throughout much of their lyrics, and it proves to work well for them. Pairing their lyrics with an Indie/Folk band, and Of Monsters and Men can have my ears any day. (Weird phrase, but you understand)
Your Rocky Spine by Great Lake Swimmers
Indie. Folk. Banjo. Soft voice. Great melody.
