Song of the Day: Stubborn Love by The Lumineers

I’ve heard their name around for a while but never really given them much thought, they’re always just been a name banded about but there’s never been much eagerness to listen to them. However, when it came to finding something new to listen to their name jumped out.

I’m glad it did. The vocalist has a lovely voice, kind of gruff at points but smooth at others and there’s something very Mumford and Sons about them, but they’re not a complete copy. (more…)

Song of the Day: I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons

This is their brand new song foreshadowing their upcoming album, and I think we’re in for something special when that comes out.

Song of the Day: Happy Now by Jon Allen

This guy sounds like Rod Stewart,that’s really the first thing that strikes you about Jon Allen, especially with Happy Now. His rough vocals give this otherwise moody folk song a rocky edge. (more…)

Song of the Day: Sea of Love by Cat Power

In a couple of these posts I’ve mentioned how some songs belong in a movie soundtrack. Well, this is exactly where I found this one. (more…)

Song of the Day: Ask You a Question by Gabby Young & Other Animals

Ask You a Question by Gabby Young & Other Animals is completely and utterly awesome! I have had it on repeat since I first heard it and this is something that has not happened for a while. (more…)

Song of the Day: The Boxer by Jerry Douglas Featuring Mumford and Sons

I came across this beautiful cover at Sutro’s Songs. I can’t even begin to say how amazing this track is. I’ve had it on repeat since hearing it for the first time. For those of you who might not know (like me when I first uncovered it) it’s a cover of the Simon and Garfunkel song The Boxer. (more…)
