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.

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

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…)

Song of the Day: Apple Tree by Nina Nesbitt

Sounding a bit like Amy MacDonald, Nina Nesbitt has arrived into the musical consciousness (well, my musical consciousness at least) with this charming tune. (more…)
