With January speedily coming to a close and the return of college drawing near, I thought what better way to spend a Monday than reflecting on the music that touched my heart and tickled my eardrums this cold and quite month. But none the less a great month at that.
I've found I listened to music a lot less this month then I generally would, on a usual working week (with college and my part time job) I would listen to music on my ipod Monday to Friday without a doubt during my college commute, in the shower, driving places etc. But this month I generally only listened to music when I was driving places. I'm one of those people who have to have music playing (up loud) when in the car, so I can sing along and enjoy my journey. It's probably one of the most enjoyable parts of driving for me. I cherish long solo journeys with my playlist blaring. It does sound pretty sad haha, driving by myself listening to music. But I love it!
I'm also one of those people who doesn't download or buy cds. I used to be. But with apps like Spotify, I just don't see the point. I can add songs to my playlists and listen to them offline within 10 seconds. No more downloading a cds contents onto itunes or buying music from the itunes store. Don't get me wrong, it is sad that the whole CD and Vinyl era is pretty much impractical now. Nothing is solid or physical anymore, it's all in the cloud and saved online.
So here are some of my favorites from the past month -
| | Foster The People - Supermodel | |
I've loved FTP since the first time I heard Pumped up Kicks. I adore their sound, it's so original. I find it hard to explain their style (they are an indie pop group) but I feel like their music has a very 'beachy' feel. Their music reminds me of Australia, either I listened to them when I visited their or they just give off an Australia vibe. Regardless they are American, not Australian haha. I've had this album on shuffle over the past few weeks and I just can't get enough. Their songs on the album vary in sound, three of my favorite being the more upbeat tracks Are You What You Want to Be, Best Friend and Ask Yourself.
| | No Rest For The Wicked - Lykke Li | |
This song just gets me in the feels haha, beautifully written, composed and sang. I came across it when watching a gripping episode of 'Revenge'.
| | Elastic Heart - Sia | |
Another really powerful music video from Sia, featuring Dance Mom's star Maddie Ziegler and actor Shia LaBeouf. But the song it's self is brilliant, Sia has such a beautiful voice. Just like Chandelier, Elastic Heart will no doubt be a hit.
| | L.A.LOVE (la la) - Fergie | |
She's back, with a funky new track. A little rhyme for you there. I love this song, its a little quirky and fun.
| | I Loved You - Blonde (ft. Melissa Steel) | |
Out of dance songs, this has to be my current favorite. Its got a very summery vibe to it and reminds me of Greece and Crete for some reason. I feel pumped for summer and excited when I listen to it.
BLAST FROM THE PAST
| | It's Not Over Yet - Klaxons | |
Stumbled back across this song in a spotify playlist and had to add it to my own. This track has such an addictive sound, I just love it.

So that's pretty much all of the songs that I've been loving the most this month. Without a doubt I'll gather a few more before the end of January, but if I love them enough I'm sure they will make an appearance in next months playlist post.
I'd love to hear what songs you're currently listening to, one can never have too much music!
It's just gone midnight and I vowed I'd get an early night, so I best sign off, until next time,
