I’m not really listening to anything new right now, so instead I’m sharing two songs I’m listening the heck out of right now: The Dirty Heads: Spread Too Thin and Of Monsters & Men: Little Talks. Both of these songs are in every single mixed playlist I have on Spotify, I can’t get enough of them. Honestly, I can’t get enough of both of the bands themselves. They each have a sound that soothes my soul.
Of Monsters and Men’s hauntingly beautiful melodies and the way singers Nanna Hilmarsdóttir and Ragnar “Raggi” Þórhallsson’s voices melt together – it relaxes me and stirs up some bittersweet remembrance.
While The Dirty Heads’ Spread Too Thin also relaxes me, it puts me in a much less reflective state of mind. The band and the songs they create remind me so much of Sublime (even before Rome)…they just relax me instantly and bring a smile to my face. The fact that recently I’ve started working a bit more and the girls are back in school (and all of KG’s respective extracurricular activities) also contributes to the fact that this song is on repeat in my brain…because there are often times during the day when it’s exactly how I feel – spread too thin.
I am seriously missing live music right now, so I am really listening to music all the time right now – but as you know, it’s totally not the same thing. I need live music. Need. So who wants to go to a concert soon?
