New Music

I haven't been keeping up with new music much these days.
I mean, I love music. I love going to concerts. I'm even a bit of a music snob. There's a wide range of music that I listen to and enjoy. But my excuse for the past two years is that I've been busy with seminary...too busy to keep up with the latest bands. Now that I've graduated though, and I have a lot of free time on my hands I'm ready to discover new music again!

So tell me, what bands are you downloading? What songs can't you get out of your head? And make it good, people...remember, music snob.

Thanks, friends!

These days I've been listening to John Mark McMillan, the new Ray LaMontagne album, and I just downloaded Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and like it. But hands down my recent fave has been the Weepies new album, 'Be My Thrill' and the title track 'I was made for sunny days' is always stuck in my head...

Latest song I can't get out of my head (in case you hadn't heard of them): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMiuITS4tHs

Not just because I personally know them all but because they're authentically good musicians:

Bridget and Luke

Brooke Fraser (from Hillsong United...) released her new album 'Flags' yesterday! You can listen to the whole thing here + download an acoustic song for free: http://www.brookefraser.com/ (P.S. if you don't own her first one, Albertine, it is seriously a must have. Seriously :) )
