April Earworms

APRIL

Hola! April is my birthday month! Here’s what mostly filled my ears:

1 The Staves

I’m still digging their sophomore album, If I Was. Great record from the sisters.

2 Death Cab for Cutie

“No Room in Frame” is my jam and Kintsugi is pretty fantastic.

3 Tobias Jesso Jr.

I listened to Tobias Jesso Jr. more this month and I’ve discovered more gems from his debut, Goon. My favorite so far is “The Wait“. The melody is pure love – the lyrics, I have quite mixed feelings for (not that it’s not good, just the content haha). I love that his sounds reminds me of the musicians before my time – the sound is clear and clean, and the tunes are mellow and quiet.

4 Husky

Aussie folk band Husky released a new album and it is a delight!

5 Ra Ra Riot

No new releases from Wes Miles and co., I just love Ra Ra Riot always.

6 Sharon Van Etten

I probably should’ve paid attention to Sharon van Etten before, but thanks to the movie Song One, I finally did it! Her two releases are gold. Emotional and raw.

7 Passion Pit

Passion Pit released a new album, Kindred and as always, it’s a fun record to listen to. Plus Michael Angelakos!

8 Jack Garratt

I’m still on the process of discovering Jack Garratt. With only a couple of singles around, he’s that guy worth watching out for.

9 The Wombats

The guys who sang “Let’s Dance to Joy Division” released a new album! Still fun, very pop rock, and catchy!

10  Mumford & Sons

My boys are back! They say it’s a new sound, and yeah, maybe they did swap their acoustic instruments but the core is pretty much the same – just listen to “Snake Eyes“, that’s still so very Mumford and Sons. Plus how haaaawt is the session drummer?

Note-worthy:

Grimes & Bleachers – Entropy

THIS. SONG.

Glass Animals – Gooey

Toro Y Moi – Buffalo

Wet – Deadwater

Rob Simonsen & Faux Fix feat. Elena Tonra (of Daughter) – Start Again

Hope you all had a good month!
