Music: On Repeat

It’s been a while since I talked about music here, outside of my year-end reviews. Since my music listening’s recently underwent a semi-significant change, perhaps it’s time a good time to chime in. :)


I’ve been an iPod/iTunes junkie for over a decade now, carrying music with me everywhere I go religiously. I got my first one as the “pickle” gift for Christmas and still, to this day, consider it one of the best presents I’ve ever received. That first iPod seemed to last forever, even though forever was actually only 5-6 years, before it finally died. In that time, Apple had released all kinds of newer, fancier iPods, so on my 30th birthday, my husband (fiancé at the time) bought me one of those fancy new ones. (You might remember me posting about it if you’ve been here long enough?) Well, to be the gift that keeps on giving (or doesn’t), literally a few days short of my 34th birthday that fancy new iPod committed suicide. It was a devastating thing to see it pass even faster than its predecessor. And despite it feeling like an appendage I’d lost, I just couldn’t bring myself to drop another $250 on a new one knowing that I’ll be lucky if I got another 4 years out of that one too.


SO… In my ongoing need for new music, I decided to just utilize my Amazon Prime account for more than just free two-day shipping and stream some music while I decided what to do with my music library from here on out. And, in doing so I found myself wondering why I wasn’t doing it all along. Why I’d fallen captive of the Apple platform for so many years when all this music was at my disposal already. I’d talked about spending more time exploring new music this year to keep my creative juices flowing, but I’d hardly even entertained the idea before being forced into another option than my iPod. In just the short time of using Amazon Prime, I’ve discovered SO MANY great artists or songs I would have likely missed out on had I just kept going on with my normal listening habits. Oh, how many musical wonders I could have found sooner had I not felt compelled to be loyal to Apple.


I’ve been so satisfied with my finds on Amazon Prime that I even bought the Amazon Echo for easier, higher quality listening when I’m at home doing things away from my PC. And while I haven’t started doing it yet, I can even add all the music and playlists I already had on iTunes to my Amazon account so I still get to enjoy the massive library of music I already own.


I feel like I should add that just because I’m enjoying streaming so much doesn’t mean I’m no longer buying music. That’s hardly the case. If anything I’m buying more, because I have the freedom to listen to and fall in-love with whole albums instead of singles before forking over the money. I will never NOT buy music, even when it’s at my disposal for free. Music artists, like so many other creative careers, cannot exist without compensation. They deserve to be paid for their hard work. Try to remember that if you are a streamer yourself.


Anyway, on tumblr tonight, I’m featuring a few of the gems I’ve found and played to death and probably I’ll keep up a sort of seasonal on repeat thing over there instead of every week (since finding time for Tumblr these days is super hard). To keep this post from becoming a short novel, I’ll just feature the bands I’ve fallen the hardest for here and if you’re interested in checking out anything else, head over to Tumblr and follow my Music Friday hashtag. Happy Listening!


The Joy Formidable


Oh, picking a song to share by this band was so, so freaking hard. The first song to spike my interest was “Whirring” and maybe I should have shared it for that reason alone, but Amazon Prime had two of their albums available for streaming and you know how much I love chick led rock music so I jumped straight from “Whirring” to everything else. It only took a half a day of listening to know that I had to own everything they’d ever made, so three albums purchased later and now I’m obsessed. They’re the kind of band you can listen to an album straight through, without ever feeling compelled to skip a track. They’ve got that grungy 90’s alternative sound and I’m so, so glad to have discovered them.



Royal Blood


The thing about Amazon Prime that I don’t love is that it doesn’t keep play counts for you; iTunes did this and it helped me gauge what I listened to the most better. I bring this up here because I’m certain that I have listened to the album this track comes from a ridiculous amount already. Like for a solid week straight from wake to sleep. Thankfully my boss ended up liking the band too. I love the rawness of them – how they don’t feel over-produced. And just overall they give me a bit of a 90’s alternative feel, which is always, always a good nostalgic thing for me.





It’s funny because this wasn’t the first Foals song I added to my playlist and it sounds nothing like the other one, but it quickly became my favorite. It’s heady and sounds sort of sinister and I just can’t get enough of it. And while I wish that more of their music had this darker tone, I can’t pretend I don’t love all of their work regardless, because I’ve bought two albums and can easily listen to them straight through without skipping a song. Maybe their future will offer up a few more dark gems like this. 😉



Highly Suspect


I’m not sure obsessed is even a good enough descriptor for how much I am loving this band right now. They have that raw, not overly produced sound I’m loving about Royal Blood, the singers voice reminds me of Dustin Kensrue (of Thrice) only even hotter, and it’s just seriously good all-out jamming music. It’s like garage band meets blues and I hate to sound like a broken record with all these 90’s feels, but it’s seriously like the music scene of my youth is making a comeback and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. I really, really hope to see this band live someday. No doubt it’s gotta be one hell of a show with music this full of energy.



J. Roddy Walston & the Business


I woke up with The Clash’s “Rock the Casbah” in my head last Friday and couldn’t stop listening to it on repeat for some reason. I tried to explain to my boss that part of the reason I loved the song so much was for how perfectly the piano stands out and that whenever I’m reunited with my own piano, I hope to learn to play it. We got to talking about other bands who do a good job at making the piano stand out and he said, “You listen to J. Roddy Walston & the Business?” My boss is one of those cool 50 year olds who figured out how to not let age actually age him. He’s been in a rock band since he can remember and while he doesn’t always love my music choices, appreciates our jam sessions at work. He had done a few gigs with J. Roddy when they first started out in the early 2000’s and they’d even lived here in Baltimore for a while. My interest was piqued immediately and Amazon had 2 of their albums available to stream so we listened to them all day and now I can’t stop listening to them because they’re like a new band with an old sound. They’re the soundtrack to the summer cookouts of my youth. They’re music my parents would have exposed me to if they’d been around when I was younger. They’re the kind of rock my parents would still listen to. I immediately went home and bought both albums and then promptly corrupted my dad with them too. 😉



What have you guys been jamming to lately?


Music Friday: July

It just occurred to me that this past Friday was in fact the last Friday of the month and I completely forgot about my Music Friday post. I've been really bad at blogging this month. Sorry about that. Anyway, I know it's not on the right day, but the music is worth being listened to on any day of the week so better late than never, right?

There was a lot to be excited about this month where music's concerned. I got singles and new releases from bands I already knew I loved and also discovered some new artists to fangirl about.

O'Brother – "Context"

You guys already know how much I love O'Brother, I posted about them plenty in 2012. But they announced a new album coming out in August and with it this single. If it's a signal of what's to come, I am positive this album will be as good, if not better than their previous one. It has all the feels of fall for me and makes it almost seem close despite the oppressive heat. I can't wait for 8/20!

78Violet – "Hothouse"

I've been an Aly & AJ fan for years. And it has been years since they released something new. If I'm honest, I wasn't sure they ever would because it'd just been so long. But there's a new album coming soon and this month they released the first single. While the girls voices have obviously matured, they're still maintaining that pop-alternative sound I fell in-love with on Into the Rush. I'm so, so excited for more.

*This video is quite beautiful, but there's a very long monologue in the beginning. Fast forward to 3:30 to hear the song itself.

Bring Me The Horizon – "The House of Wolves"

I could have sworn I'd checked out this band before and didn't like them, but when Mindy White of States posted "Can You Feel My Heart" as a song on her summer playlist, I was intrigued to check out more. I don't know if it's just this latest album, but I'm really digging it.

Karnivool – "We Are"

Even if this song wasn't great (but I assure you, it is), this video is a perfect example of what I love about proper music videos. I have a great respect for bands who still put a lot of effort into these mini movies. I know that video's don't really have a great platform to present themselves anymore, with channels like MTV never actually playing music anymore, but I miss the old days when we used to live for the music video. When I saw this one, I was captivated and even more amazed when I reached it's end and hadn't seen it coming. I'm waiting for the album this song comes from to release in August with great expectations.

Other songs worth checking out:

Kings of Leon – "Supersoaker"
letlive. – "The Priest and Used Cars"
Dance Gavin Dance – "The Robot with Human Hair Pt. IV"
Vampire Weekend – "Everlasting Arms"

What were you listening to in July? Anything I need to hear? Feel free to share!

Music Friday: June

Oh, June. It wasn't good for much, but musically it was on fire (much like the weather). I've been trying to keep these posts under 5 videos a month, with links to the rest and mostly I've stuck to 3, but I just can't do that this month. There is just too much you need to hear. Sorry, not sorry.

I The Mighty – "Four Letter Words"

You probably already know how much I've been looking forward to the new I The Mighty album because I've basically been listening to them non-stop for the past two months now. On release day it was almost like I was daring them to let me down – sure that their streak of perfect music couldn't possibly be an all-the-time thing. But, man, they so did NOT let me down. It is rare for me to love every song a band puts out, so rare that I can count the bands who qualify in less than ten fingers, but I The Mighty has quickly butted it's way into this "favorites" list. Bravo, boys. If you haven't checked out Satori yet, do yourself a favor and get on that. Seriously. (You can stream the whole album to preview HERE.)

City and Colour – "Thirst"

This was another album I was looking forward to releasing in June and it was so, so soothing at just the right times. If you're feeling angsty and want to settle down, I suggest giving City and Colour a shot. It's the kind of music you just chill out too and suddenly you've forgotten why you were angsty to begin with.

Sleeping with Sirens – "These Things I've Done"

It's not that I wasn't a fan of Sleeping with Sirens already, because I was, but I admit I wasn't exactly looking forward to their latest album – heck I didn't even know it was coming out until they released the first single and I wasn't much of a fan of that first track. But then right when the album dropped they released a second single that I just had to have and I found that the album had a lot more of that sound than the first single's sound. I find it a bit funny that I was in no hurry to get this album and in the end I think I liked it better than the previous one. Maybe it's a silly comparison, but I get a lot of 80's hairband feels from this album and it makes me a bit nostalgic for my youth.

letlive. – "The Fear Fever"

You might remember me posting about letlive. in my yearly music reviews last December, about how I wasn't prepared to fall in-love with them the way I did, but it happened. So imagine my delight over them releasing not only a new single this month, but also streaming the entire new album slated to come out in July. I've tried really hard to stay away from that stream because I don't want it to kill the excitement factor of release day, but there are just some songs like this one that are irresistible. You can bet I'll be posting about letlive. again next month. You should just go ahead and get to know them now.

Arctic Monkeys – "Do You Wanna Know?"

A month or two ago Arctic Monkeys announced they were working on a new album to be released this year. Considering Arctic Monkeys is one of those rare favorite bands that I like every song they've ever created, you can imagine the sort of fangirl squeal that escaped my mouth over the news. This month they announced the release date (September 10th) and track list alongside this single. Alex Turner's voice is oh-so-dreamy as usual and if this track and "R U Mine?" (which is also on the album) is any indication of what this album will sound like as a whole, I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it a heck of a lot.

The Material – "Skin & Bone"

I got into this band this month solely because I The Mighty said to. The female voice you heard in their track, "Four Letter Word," is the lead singer of this band and since I'm a sucker for chick-rock it seemed like an easy direction to take. And I'm glad I did because this band's not just good, they're great. They have a lot of the same qualities that made me fall in-love with Paramore back in the day so I'm hopeful I'll love even more than just this album.

Some other tracks worth checking out:

Fall Out Boy – "Where Did the Party Go?"
Deerhunter – "Leather Jacket II"
Tides of Man – "Young and Courageous"

What were you listening to in June? Anything you think I'd like to hear? Please feel free to share, this music junkie can never get enough. 😀

Music Friday: March

Look, I remembered to do the Best of Music Friday on the right day this month! And this is despite being ridiculously busy and far past my bedtime. ::gives self a high-five::

Music was strange for me this month. At moments I clung to one individual song or artist and listened to nothing else for a week straight. Typically I have several artists to post on Friday, but this wasn't the case for most of March. I spent a great deal of time revisiting bands I've already posted before and a surprising amount of time listening to nothing at all. Anyway, most notable this month is as follows!

Fall Out Boy – "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'em Up)"

I heard this on the way to church one Sunday and sort of loved that it sounded like Fall Out Boy, but didn't at the same time. I've enjoyed some of their music in the past, but I'm actually looking forward to this new album if it's more like this.

The Kills – "Cheap and Cheerful"

My friend Heather () got me into this band a while back, but I sort of forgot to give the album she'd shared with me a shot. I finally rectified that this month and while doing so had a brain-fart moment. I'd been listening to this song on repeat for a week when I watched the movie Project X for the third time and wondered once again about a song I liked on the soundtrack that actually wasn't part of the soundtrack. After some small research, I realized the reason I liked the song so much was because it was the remix of the song I was already listening to on repeat. I swear, I'm a genius sometimes. ::sarcasm::

Mindless Self Indulgence – "It Gets Worse"

I'd been looking forward to this album coming out since Christmas. While there are plenty of great tracks, I have to admit I don't love it as much as I did previous albums, but that's totally okay. Still a great band that I'm happy to have new music from finally, especially when songs like this will help me with Dreamsters! :)

Nico Vega – "Million Years"

I got into Nico Vega in early 2012 with the track "Iron Man" but once again forgot I had the album and never gave it a second listen. For the past few weeks though the commercial for BioShock Infinite has been using their track "Beast" and not only is it making me want to play this game something fierce, it finally encouraged me to check out the album. I regret not doing it sooner it's that good.

Other tracks that lived on repeat:

Macklemore – "Can't Hold Us"
Korn – "Throw Me Away"
Marilyn Manson – "Devour"
Black Light Burns – "Lucretia My Reflection"

What held your ears attention in March? I'm always on the hunt for new tunes so please share!


Music Friday: January

Typically I include the music that made me happy each month in my monthly review posts, but I think this year I’m going to do it a little differently so those posts aren’t so terribly long. Since I always post music on Friday’s on FB, Tumblr, and Twitter, dubbed “Music Friday,” I’m going to pull my absolute favorites from the month and start posting them in their own post here on the last Friday of the month. This way those of you who are only interested in the music aspect of my monthly reviews don’t have to be bored with all my other life achievements (or failures – eh).

So, what exactly graced my ears in January? Too much to share it all, honestly. But I’ll post the top 5 played tracks and link you to some more! ENJOY!

Deftones – “Gauze”
Lindsey Stirling – “Stars Align”
Silversun Pickups – “Simmer”
KB – “Church Clap”
ZZ Ward – “Put the Gun Down”

Other songs that lived on repeat in January include

If you’re really into music like me, and would like to see music related posts more often than a once a month recap here, perhaps you should follow me on Tumblr. There are some Friday’s where Music Friday doesn’t happen, but it’s not often. I also love music suggestions so feel free to send me something you think I might like!


July: In Review (Super Late)

Writing: I only wrote 581 words for my short story. Shameful, I know.

Reading: I read 10 books in July!

The Shins – “The Rifle’s Spiral”

Gotye – “Easy Way Out”

Kimbra – “Warrior”

Seems a little late to ask now, but how was your July?


March: In Review

So March was full of unexpected stresses that I handled oddly well, but it bit into my typical goals a great deal and in that manner I didn’t handle it well. I know that life sneaks up on you at times and you have to just accept it for what it is, but this month it made me sad that I wasn’t able to juggle it all.


I started several books this month, but my desire to read died as my stress level increased. Any time I tried to pick up and finish any of the books I’d started, I’d quickly put them back down feeling meh about them as a whole. I’m not sure if it just says they’re not good books or whether my mood just made them feel that way. Hopefully my urge to finish them will return in April and they won’t still have that boring feel to them.

Anyway, since it’d look too lonely being photographed alone, I’ll just link to the review for the only book I did manage to complete this month: Sweetly by Jackson Pearce.


Considering how successful I was writing last month, this is the most disappointing thing to report this month. I’d like to say that I tried hard and failed, but in most cases when I should have been trying, my brain was too fried with stress to even open my books documents. As a result my official word count for March is only 1669, and I’m pretty positive that almost 1000 of those words are total crap, likely to be deleted. I really, really hope I can come out of April with something more worthy of reporting because this month’s number is making me feel pretty pathetic right now.

Music: On Repeat

Since everything else hasn’t really been worth mentioning, I will let music get a little more shine because it certainly didn’t let me down this month!

The Black Keys – “Hell of a Season”

I kept forgetting to buy this album and finally caved at the start of March. Overall, it is a fantastic record. Every bit of it is easy to listen to; it’s music that feels like summer. I highly suggest giving it a shot.

Alex Clare – “Too Close”

I’m still not sure how I feel about dubstep. Sometimes I think I like it because it makes me want to dance and you must know how much I love to dance, but overall I can’t really see myself just listening to it to listen to it. This song isn’t completely dubstep though so I was able to just listen to it without feeling the urge to pop wherever I was. I blame Internet Explorer’s recent commercial for this song being purchased and played so many times this month. 

White Rabbits – “Danny Come Inside”

The much anticipated “Milk Famous” came out at the beginning of the month and previous posts should have made you guess I’d be snatching that up right away. The album definitely has a different feel than its predecessors, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing. My favorite track so far is one I’d heard them perform back in December at the show I attended. I’m still feeling the album out for other favorites.

Chantal Claret – “Bite Your Tongue”

While I’m sad to discover that Chantal’s previous band Morningwood is officially dead, I’m excited that she’s making music on her own now, music that’s being released on an EP in April and a full album in June! As a way to lure listeners in, two songs from the upcoming album have been released, one of which, “Bite Your Tongue,” was released for free download. Because I can’t find an actual video to show you, “Bite Your Tongue,” I’m going to share the video for the other released track, which is equally as awesome anyway (I just have no way of recording how many times I've watched it – ha!).

“Pop Pop Bang Bang” *Warning: Video is a little morbid.

Alice Anna – “Standing in the Rain”

This is a local Baltimore band I stumbled upon this month and part of me wanted to love them solely for being from my home town, but even if they hadn't been I couldn’t deny their amazing talent. I bought every bit of music they’ve released and have been telling anyone I can to check them out. It’s a piano based rock band, with a lead singer with such a smooth voice. What’s not to love?

Blouse – “Time Travel”

A track that somehow slipped in at the very end of the month, suggested by a friend from tumblr. I’m not sure how much I’ll love the entire album, but there’s this great 80’s feel to this track that’s impossible not to bob your head to and step back into time with.


As always, Gideon is a nearly perfect subject for our photo shoots. I think I've trained him pretty well. There were lots of great shots this month, but I think this one is the sweetest because it captured both his dimple and bottom teeth! He is such a happy baby.

Hopefully life is finished toying with me and April will be a little more rewarding. It is my birthday month after all. That means the universe must play nice with me, right? *fingers crossed*

How successful (or not) was your March?


Yes. Yes, I’m yours.

I’ll just leave this right here…. I’m pretty sure you know what to do with it. 😀




2011 In Review: Music (Part 1)

2011 was an extremely musically charged year for me. In fact, when it comes to these year end lists, music had so much influence on me that it makes the other “reviews” I’ll do seem lackluster. I have added 9.12 GB worth of music to my iTunes this year (that’s approximately 1400 new songs) and that’s not even all of the music I’ve acquired this year. I’m scared to do the math and see what my Amazon MP3 bill looks like.

Anyway, because music was so prominent this year, I plan to break my music review into two parts for you. What you’re seeing now are the Top Ten Most Played Songs. Keep an eye out for Part 2 – featuring the Best *New Bands of 2011 and the corruptors who made it possible! :)

*New to me, not necessarily new to the world

Top Ten Most Played Songs

Every month this year, I’ve done an “On Repeat” post of the music currently getting a lot of love that month. If you’ve been paying attention all year, most of the songs in this top ten should seem a little familiar to you.

10. Sixx: A.M. – "Pray for Me"

I was a fan of Motley Crue growing up so when Heather turned me onto Sixx: A.M. and I realized the band featured Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue it was pretty easy to give them a shot. Clearly, the fact that this song makes this top-ten list is evidence that I ended up loving them. (Warning: The video is explicit)

9. Three Days Grace – “Scared”

So badly I've wanted a character to own this song, but nope, no ones stepped up to the plate for it yet. That didn’t mean I couldn’t love it though, and play it ad nauseam just because I wanted to. That does happen sometimes, after all. 😉

8. Tides of Man – “Chemical Fires”

It surprises me a little that this song got so many plays so quickly considering the band itself is still fairly new to me, but once a certain character of mine heard it, he demanded I listen to it over and over again while working on his book in November. Also, it doesn’t hurt that overall this band flat out rocks and reminds me of a band I grew up loving.

7. The Kills – “U.R.A. Fever”

Imagine two wayward teens, one of which used to be popular. They share a common trait, a special ability, but no one else knows that. Now picture them walking onto campus in one of those slow motion walk sequences like you’ve seen in movies like Road Trip. Suddenly, they seem cool. This is the imagery that belongs to this song for me. Two characters from a companion novel to my first book own this song for this reason and when I received the song, I just knew whenever I return to writing their book that this track will be played so-so many more times than it already has been.

6. Artifex Pereo – “The Lantern & the Firefly”

Everything by this band is so easy to write too, especially for Crack the Sky because their sound overall just fits the tone of that book so perfectly. It’s the kind of music I imagine the lead male listening to so it’s easy to just have it on in the background when I’m writing. This song in particular, though, will actually represent a major turning point in the book and writing that scene will be so much fun! I imagine, as I aim to complete Crack the Sky in 2012, that this track will bleed into the New Year and get heaps more plays.

5. Emarosa – “Breather”

I didn’t even get into Emarosa until late in the year, but this song became the backdrop of the intro to my NanoWrimo novel and as a result was played over 285 times! I love when bands I like release wordless music, especially when it’s as epic as this track. Sometimes it’s the best stuff to write to!

4. Prom Kings – “Angels”

When I first heard this song I loved it right away and I was grateful for the way it seemed to wake up characters I’d long given up on. It became representation of the way the story will end, something I had no idea of when the story had first come to me, and partly the reason I thought it was a dead story. At the time I had no idea this story would be a book I’d actually start working on, but it became my NanoWrimo novel and this song got even more plays than I could have expected!

3. White Rabbits – “Midnight & I”

White Rabbits is a band I really got into last year honestly, but for some reason in the beginning of 2011 I couldn’t get enough of them again and this song in particular. Again, this is a song that was used for a book and it is largely the reason for its repetitive nature. Even if it hadn’t been used for a book though, I would have still loved its moody piano based sound.

2. Sick Puppies – “I Hate You”

I can’t even remember what the first Sick Puppies song I heard was at this point because once I acquired all of their music this song completely dominated my ears. While I will say that everything by this group is extremely easy to listen to, this song in particular got the most plays not just because I liked it, but also because characters from a four book series I plan to write claimed it as theirs. Characters, as you’ve already seen, have a lot of power over me when it comes to my music selection.

1. The Left Rights – “I’m on Crack”

Certifiably the strangest song in this list, I know. I listened to this song ad nauseam last January when they first released it. It’s a side project from Mindless Self Indulgence singer, Jimmy Urine (whom I love), and I just couldn’t help myself.  It’s also a short song so its play count quickly climbed higher than the others because of this.

What lived on repeat for you in 2011?


November: On Repeat (Special Edition)

Since November was NanoWrimo month I didn’t really allow my ears to hear much outside of the playlist for my NanoNovel, Crack the Sky. Because of this I’ve decided to simply post said playlist (or at least the 10 songs with the highest play counts at the end of my NanoWrimo mania).
Also, if you’re interested in seeing some snippets from Crack the Sky click HERE!

Emarosa – “Breather”

He Is Legend – “Mean Shadows”

Artifex Pereo – “The Lantern & the Firefly”

Three Days Grace – “Overrated”

Thrice – “Moving Mountains”

Red – “Watch You Crawl”

Tides of Man – “Chemical Fires”

Prom Kings – “Angels”

Sharon Van Etten – “Love More”

Florence + the Machine – “Seven Devils”

Since I will most likely listen to nothing but Christmas music in December and plan to do the 25 Days of Christmas Music posts like I did last year, this will be the last On Repeat post of the year. At the end of December though, keep an eye out for my 2011 in Review posts, of which there will be more than one music themed one this year!
Peace – Sarah
