- Caught several shows, including Yellow Ostrich, James Vincent McMorrow, White Hinterland and S. Carey, Moon Taxi and The Revivalists, and Dan Croll and Panama Wedding.
- Chatted with the boys of Junior Prom and Harmonic Blue.
- Checked out the Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival featuring so many TIOJ favorites!
"Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)" - City & Colour
This song is unthinkably sexy.
"Whiskey Sunsets" - Moon Taxi
A song that references my liquor of choice and the most beautiful time of day -- plus a live version that samples Bruce Springsteen? Uh, duh.
"Cavalier" - James Vincent McMorrow
Seeing JVM live was the highlight of our YEAR and this song stood out as the goddamn sexiest song ever.
"Warranted Queen" - Arum Rae
All hail the queen!
"Marching Through Georgia" - Old Crow Medicine Show
I always like learning something from songs -- thanks for the history lesson, OCMS!
"Maway" - Dan Croll
Dan Croll's show was such a delight; I haven't been able to get this song out of my head since.
"Cold Front" - Laura Welsh
So hypnotizing and soothing -- can't get enough.
"Fever" - The Black Keys
Can. Not. Wait. for the new album from the Black Keys after all the teasers they've been releasing!
"Back In The Tall Grass" - Future Islands
Future Islands was certainly my most played album this month and this song was my perfect cut to listen to and user in warmer weather.
"Nevermind the End" - Tei Shi
This stunner reminds me of a quirkier Adele -- a great combo.
"Baby Missiles" - The War on Drugs
Such a fan of The War on Drugs after listening to their interview on NPR!
"Brother" - Mac DeMarco
After a little prodding, I am now completely on the Mac DeMarco bandwagon.
"Mirrors" - Andrew Ripp
Sometimes covers are just as good as originals--this is one of those times.
"Bayhouse" - Save the Arcadian
Such a summery fun song from some of my new favorite Virginians.
"It's Time To Wake Up 2023"- La Femme
This has been my favorite song to wake up to all month (bonus points for getting to practice my French while listening!)
