Bon Iver...

10.25.2011


Happy Tuesday everyone!!! After a great night run with my Run Dem Crew people, I am feeling pretty satisfied with life all around... time to sit and enjoy some pie (if you follow me on twitter, yep second night in a row!) and some wine, complemented by some tunes to set the relaxed mood I'm feeling... the calm after the run if you will. Then the genius that I am thought, hey it's Tuesday!!! Let me share my musical selection with my blog follower friends... I know, I know, I'm just that good hu?

So to add to my ever growing collection of indie-folk loves (seriously I think I may be a tad obsessed!), I give you Bon Iver. These guys just casually swooped into my life via my ears and into my heart... especially with my all time favorite of theirs, Skinny Love... swoon!!! The combination of poetry like lyrics accompanied by such heart felt vocals are reason enough to fall... and fall hard! After hearing them for the first time, I just couldn't get enough!!! Downloading their album, I listened to each song and devoured every word (did I mention I'm a poetry junkie?)... I was mesmerized by one song after another. I never expect to like every song in an album let alone LOVE each and every one... but well done guys, you have my heart.

*Sorry guys, the website I make my playlists on is down but I will have it up and running as soon as I can... enjoy the songs via youtube in the mean time =)

***Today I am thankful for the amazing views I have to the pleasure of seeing on my runs... I mean who else can say they have the Gherkin, the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, and some pretty amazing bridges on their route... I am really lucky and spoiled!!!

  2. Indie Rock is very understated. I'm so glad that many new bands are getting exposure thanks to social media. :)
