I decided it’s time to wrap up my favorite artists/tracks per month. It’s easier to catch up than do it quarterly, right? According to my trusty last.fm scrobble (but I doubt trusty cause I have offline obsessions as well), my Top 10 artist for the last 30 days are:
1 The 1975
I can explain: I saw them live this month. So you understand concert pre and post hangovers, right? Plus take a look at this really cool light show during “Heart Out“!
2 Frank Sinatra
I love Frank, but I don’t know why it took me long to realize that he could totally sing me to sleep. Also, I have a thing for this song. I mean, just the title. And then the lyrics OHMYGOD the lyrics. I love Chet Baker’s version, but Frank’s is nice too.
3 John Mayer
Sometimes I just miss John Mayer pre-dating everyone else on the tabloids. I meant Room for Squares, Heavier Things…so I binged on that. Also “Not Myself” is my ultimate Mayer song and “In Your Atmosphere”? So much feels.
4 Taylor Swift
Cause I’ve got a blank space and she pretty much wrote her name.
5 Purity Ring
YAS new album come to me please!
6 Wolf Alice
Recent track of the week!
7 Simon & Garfunkel
I was writing a story in which they mention “Homeward Bound”, my first ever Simon & Garfunkel fave song before I realized oh these are the guys who sang The Sound of Silence! PS I didn’t like “The Sound of Silence” as a kid as it’s very eerie but I totally got it after watching The Graduate years later.
Strange Desire is brilliant, just putting it out there. I love it.
9 Death Cab for Cutie
There’s a new song out called “Black Sun” minus one DCFC member, but also, who gets tired of Transatlanticism? Not me.
I just listened to the new album and it’s pretty fun! I first noticed Haerts for their track “All the Days” but now I have my eyes (ears?) on “Giving Up” and “Hemiplegia.” Also, googling that word.
Next month’s prediction:
Mikky Ekko released his debut album Time and it is gorgeous. I expect to have him on next month’s list.
Little Discoveries Worth Mentioning:
Leo Stannard – Please Don’t
Up and coming. Very promising.
PHOX – Slow Motion
Really sexy tune. Enjoying this band and I’m currently trying their other tracks. But this one’s really strong.
The Coronas – Someone Else’s Hands
HOW DO I NOT KNOW THESE GUYS UNTIL THIS DAY, I don’t even. It’s Snow Patrol-esque music and that works for me.
Magic Man – Catherine
Happy, catchy, youthful song that we all need on such days.

And that’s it! Happy listening! 🙂
