Wow, time flies! I just realized that I said I would probably be updating this thing; the thing is, I am a lying liar who sometimes doesn't tell the truth. But here's what I've been listening to lately!

WINTERSLEEP:

Their whole album Welcome to the Night Sky is phenomenal, and I've loved them since the first time I heard Weighty Ghost. For a good while, that was the only song of theirs I had truly listened to, but I did some exploring, and I came across gems like Dead Letter and the Infinite Yes, Drunk on Aluminum, and Astronaut. I don't know what it is, but something about their lead singers voice leads me to think that they are a very passionate band, they truly enjoy the great music they're making. And Dead Letter and the Infinite Yes is a heartbreaking song, I could listen to the chorus until I die.

Set the Fire to the Third bar by SNOW PATROL FEAT. MARTHA WAINWRIGHT:

Not only is this a soothing, beautiful lulling song, but the lyrics are wonderful. The thing that really draws me into the song is the lead singer of Snow Patrol's lower register and slow tone, with the utter expressiveness of Martha's voice. And like I've said before, I'm a sucker for male/female duets.

The Album Fantasies by METRIC:

This is an all-around great album. It has some fantastic dancing beats, and Emily Haines' crazy awesome vocals. It seems she could sing the phone book to me, and I would still listen with all my heart. Gold Guns Girls, is my go-to song from this album, though Sick Muse comes in at a close second. But I swear for the longest time, I thought the chorus went "everybody everybody just wants to play the Wii' and not 'everybody everybody just wants to play the lead'. Twilight Galaxy is a great song to fall asleep to.

For Your Entertainment by ADAM LAMBERT:

I listen to this song while I clean, and it really gets me motivated to actually finish the job! The video is awesome too, and this song is ridiculously catchy, I can't help but dance.

Challengers by THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS:

I first heard their song Adventures in Solitude and that is a fantastic song, so I decided to do some more digging, and I absolutely LOVE this song! Once again, it's a male/female song, but I think it's multiple girls, and one guy.  I think this band blends well together, and you can tell with their music.

Until You Won Me Over by TRENT DABBS:

This is overall just a sweet song. There's not much else to say, it's just a very pleasant song to listen to, and kind of addictive! I heard it on One Tree Hill (a show I watch exclusively for the awesome music, I don't much care for the characters), and I knew it was awesome after the first bar!

When Lost At Sea by THE WOODEN SKY:

I don't know much about this band, I stumbled upon them by accident, but they're my kind of band, and this song is awesome, so I really enjoy them!

Defying Gravity by CHRIS COLFER:

I'd never heard this song before Glee, as I'm not really a musicals kind of person, no matter how much people around me seem to be, but Kurt is literally my favorite character in that show, and I really like Chris Colfer's personality, so it's a given that I love this song!

Bad Romance by LADY GAGA:

Nuff' said.

That's all for now, nobody reads this thing anyways, but I like to go back and look at what i'd been doing at any particular time.

God I forgot how badass Fight Club is.

I love this movie like Dean loves Sam.

And that's a lot!

I have a lot of time to listen to music, and I'm pretty sure if I didn't, i'd be spending my spare time plotting nefarious deeds, and no one wants that hmmm? So here's what I've been listening to lately:

REGINA SPEKTOR:

I bought her new album as soon as it came out, and loved it at first listen! I had heard the live version of Genius Next Door before this album, an hearing the studio version was really lovely. She always has such stories in her lyrics which is a big part in the fun I have listening to her music. And plus, her voice is PHENOMENAL. I listened to Dance Anthem of the 80's literally 67 times (I checked on iTunes), it's just so darn catchy! And to quote somebody else whom I'm to lazy to look up right now "Wallet is the best song written about a blockbuster card ever!" And every time I listen to Two Birds, all I think about is Kirk and McCoy from Star Trek at the Academy, especially the line:  "Two birds on a wire, one says 'Come on!' and the other says 'I'm tired'". I just keep picturing a grumpy McCoy being irritated at Kirk's attempts to socialise him. All in all, a great album!

I Know What I Am by BAND OF SKULLS:

This is just a song that makes me want to do something badass! I love the thumping bass line and drums, and I've always had a thing for bands with a male and female singer, so this was just my cup of tea! I listen to it when I want to pump myself up for something boring (like doing the dishes) :D

Hearless (Kanye West Cover) by THE FRAY:


The Fray took a song that I already liked, and made it EVEN MORE AWESOME! I went to their concert a couple of weeks ago, and it was fantastic, I had so much fun! It's much smoother than the original version, and I love Isaac's voice, so it was awesome to hear live.

Chillin' by WALE FT. LADY GAGA:

I'm a person that steers clear of hip hop usually, unless it's PHENOMENAL or it has a really good message, this song is neither, but I blame the catchy chorus. Something about Lady Gaga's voice just draws me in! And it's not because it's exceptionally good, but I love the melody of the chorus, and generally ignore the rapping, but I still enjoy it.

Wrong by DEPECHE MODE:

Now, I've been going on a Depeche Mode binge lately, but I can't stop listening to this song!

The Acrobat by JOHNATHAN RICE:

I love this song because it is so low. Not in a depressing way, but I like the way his voice rumbles, I find it very soothing. I like the way the song escalates into more melody, and I can't resist a good violins section (I've always wanted to play the violin or the cello). I like how each verse is it's own little story, so I listen to this song usually before I go to sleep.

So that's what's been playing in my ears lately, I'll probably have another slew of songs next week.
