music (again)

This post about music can at least be blame on someone else–Ashley Gill made me do it.  She begs to know what my favorite summer music is

Normally, I would have a pretty stellar playlist to pull from, but, truth be told, this summer has been odd and overwhelming and stressful.  In ways I could not have necessarily predicted, so I think a lot of the music I’ve had on repeat is probably more in the Autumn category.  I’ve listened to a lot of Band of Horses, Redbird, the FInches, and (of coures) Hem and Iron & Wine.  A few summertime (re)discoveries include Tilly and the Wall, Mates of State, and Josh Ritter.  They’re pretty summer-full, at least the first two are.  The Fleet Foxes seem a bit over-hyped, but I still love their album and their harmonies, and their winter-wear during concerts in Texas.

Though someone bothered that I don’t have a go-to summer list, I did make my dad a compilation album of which I am rather proud.  So I’ll share that list:

“Gospel, For Now”

10. “By The Mark”–Gillian Welch
11. “Holy Ground”–Luka Bloom
12. “Glory Bound”–Martin Sexton
13. “Failed Christian (Ash Wednesday Mix)”–Over the Rhine

15. “I’ll Fly Away” (slow version)–Gathering Miriam
