what’s on my playlist

Being a big, big, big fan of music I thought it was only fitting to share what I am listening to at the moment.  This will also include some of hubby’s picks because I usually spend a lot of time time listening to and loving some of his picks.

Janelle Monae – Archandroid: Bright, soulful, gorgeous.  It throws you on the first listen because it’s not like anything else out there at the moment. Reminiscent of  music long past but with a distinctly modern twist, perfect beats to put a smile on your face.

Porcupine Tree – Anesthetize: Hubby’s constant listening companion at the moment.  Porcupine Tree continuously offers a mix of beautifully melancholic sounds, death metal riffs and atmospheric synth sessions and Anesthetize does not disappoint.  Also contains a DVD live performance from their “Fear of a Blank Planet / The Incident”  Tour (and previous releases)  We have been lucky enough to see them live in the past few years and I thoroughly recommend a ticket purchase next time they are near your town.

Bat For Lashes – Tow Suns: Yes it’s been out for a while but Natasha Khan still captures your breath on every listen. Hauntingly beautiful, from the heartbreaking “Daniel” to the breathtaking vocals on “Siren Song” and “Glass”. Two Suns is wise beyond its (and Natasha’s) years.
