As with everything else around here, it's been over a week since I last posted some tags, but it's been a little hectic around these parts lately. There are so many songs tagged in my phone right now, it was like narrowing it all down and weeding out the most relevant this time around. I'm not sure I'll ever be short on tags to post. Now that May and my 30 day challenge is over, it's like I forgot how fun it was to blog (almost) every day. Anyway, without further ado, here's five songs that are hitting me this week, and why.
1) Fanfarlo - Harold T. Wilkins, or How to Wait for a Very Long Time.
I love this song. Part of why this made the list this week is because Fanfarlo is playing a free outdoor show in Providence this Friday evening. Waterplace Park, 7:30 pm. I'll be there, will you?
2) The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition
Okay, I confess that I didn't actually tag this song, but I love it, and my friend M just sent me a text about it, so it's fresh in my head. You can thank M if you're into the tune.
3) Against Me! - I was a Teenage Anarchist
This should have been in the last round of tags, it's been in my phone for so long, and it's been tagged more than twice. It has just the right mix of fun and angst. I love it.
4) Coheed & Cambria - Here We Are Juggernaut
Love. I know C&C aren't anyone new, and I don't know how new this song is, but I'm really into it. It's a little more harsh than some of the other stuff I've been listening to lately, but awesome nonetheless. We were stupid we got caught . . .
5) Bushwalla - I Raise Up
OMG. BW is playing house shows on the east coast this month, and I can't afford to get him at my house. Nor can I count on enough people coming through to chip in to be able to afford to front the money myself. And he's available when I am and everything; I already checked. I could totally do it if I could only justify the cash outlay. BUMMA. B-U-M-M-A. I absolutely hate that I have this opportunity, and can't take advantage. I love his style and his music SO much, and I really and truly want to introduce him to more people that I know would feel the same way. He's also playing a show in MA (an hour and a half away) at the end of the month, and I need to go to that. Seriously, you guys, he's so awesome. New album came out this week, and even though it's not on the radio and capable of being tagged, this is the first single. I couldn't not promote my boy. Check. Him. OUT!
