Follow Friday

Welcome to my first ever Follow Friday post! Hooray! Thanks to Parajunkee & Alison Can Read for an awesome meme. 🙂

Today’s question is:Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

So glad you asked! I love music of all kinds, but here I’m going to stick with my favorites and/or bands that I think are a little lesser known but deserve more exposure.

Beirut (I LOVE this guy and he has had the most interesting life ever):

The Decemberists:

Devotchka:

Matt and Kim:

And two by M. Ward, who IMO is tied with Jeff Buckley for the most amazing voice ever:

And I will stop there even though I could easily go on ALL DAY. I’m always looking to new things to listen to so please leave a comment with either the link to your choices or just some of your favorite bands!

  1. We have similar taste 🙂 I really like Matt & Kim, Beirut and M Ward.

    I’m a little obsessed with White Lies lately; they have an album that came out in 2011 but I’m partial to To Lose My Life from 2009 (I think). Every song is so good. They’re like a little poppier version of Interpol, although the band denies they sound at all like Interpol. I happen to love Interpol,so whatevs.

  4. I’m embarrassed to admit that I hadn’t heard of any of these, but now I’ve watched those videos, they sound great! I’ll definitely have to listen to more of these bands.

    Here’s my FF!
