5 More Songs I’ve Been Listening to on Spotify
As you already know, Spotify is the favorite and most used application on my phone. The purpose of this new segment will be to share with you readers five songs I have recently been listening to on Spotify. My hope is that I can share some music with you that you might enjoy and in return you can let me know about some music I might also like. These are the 5 songs I’ve been listening to the most the last week or so.
“The Mighty Rio Grande” by This Will Destroy You
Yes, you already know I LOVE Explosions in the Sky. What you might not know is that I like other Post Rock bands as well. A good friend of mine recently introduced me to This Will Destroy You and they’ve quickly become one of my favorite bands to listen to. The entire album is great but, “The Mighty Rio Grande” is my favorite track to listen while at work or relaxing at home.
“The Ghost of Tom Joad” by Bruce Springsteen feat. Tom Morello
This song was my very favorite when I heard Bruce in concert. I wasn’t aware at first that a version of this song featuring Morello was available, but now that I’ve found it I can’t get it off my regular rotation.
“Sighs of Relief” by Paper Thick Walls
I recently went to a show in town for Save the Clocktower’s most recent album release. Going to the show I knew I already liked Save the Clocktower, what I didn’t know was how much I was going to like one of the opening acts, fellow Chicagoans Paper Thick Walls. This is my favorite track of theirs but I enjoy all the songs on the album.
“I Will Wait” by Mumford & Sons
I know this is boring. Why don’t I suggest “Gangnam Style” to you while I’m at it? Mumford & Sons newest album dominates the “Top Tracks” section on Spotify and while I agree it’s unoriginal it doesn’t mean the album isn’t great. “I Will Wait” is my favorite song off of Babel.
“Onwards to the Wall” by A Place to Bury Strangers
For reasons that remained unexplained to me, Wired began showing up in my mailbox last month. I’m not sure how it happened, or if I really want to read Wired every month, but they did have a Running Mix in the last issue that provided me with this track. The beats per minute are high and that always helps when you’re trying to leg out those last few miles.
