With so much music in the world, it’s hard to have been graced by every single fantastic song. To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of some awesome tracks that will make your life and hopefully introduce you to some bands you may not have heard otherwise.
1) “Welcome Home” by Radical Face
I’m way too in love with this song. Having heard it for the first time about a week ago in Starbucks, I’ve been playing it on an endless loop ever since. It seems as if I’m not the only one obsessed as the song as been featured on multiple TV shows such as the hit show, “The Blacklist”.
2) “Waiting For An Invitation” by Benji Hughes
Benji Hughes’ voice is perfect for easy listening and his lyrics are always very raw and heartfelt. This particular song, I find so heartbreakingly beautiful, I could put it on repeat for days. It was featured on an episode of “How I Met Your Mother”, but that’s the only time I’ve ever heard it outside of my Spotify library.
3) “Lovely Bloodflow” by Baths
Baths is an extremely weird artist to get your head around. His lyrics are hard to understand sort of like Bon Iver, but his music is deeply entrancing. “Lovely Bloodflow” is the kind of song that you accidently stumble upon, but then can’t get out of your head for days. I strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking for music to write or read to.
4) “Paradise Circus” by Massive Attack
I find it hard to classify the band as one specific genre, but their music is fantastic and I have the worst time finding people who know their work. “Paradise Circus” has worked its way up to at least my top 20 favorite songs. It’s very dramatic and haunting.
5) “Ride” by Cary Brothers
This is the only song by the Cary Brothers that I’m familiar with and it’s the only song I feel the need to be familiar with. The song is so pretty and just sounds like the sound track to every romance movie ever, but I’m okay with that.
6) “Bloodstream” by Stateless
I’ve loved this song for years and I’m still trying to find the time to learn how to play it on the piano. From the melody to the lyrics there is nothing about this song that isn’t fantastic.
7) “Thousand Mile Wish” by Finger Eleven
An oldie, but goodie. Finger Eleven is best known for their club anthem, “Paralyzer,” but “Thousand Mile Wish” is my absolute favorite song of theirs.
Check out these songs and more! I recommend downloading Spotify if you don’t already have it. It’s a great resource for discovering new songs and bands to obsess over.
