Anyway my favourite songs at the moment are:
1) Lewis Watson - Into The Wild
I am completely addicted to this song at the moment. After following Lewis for quite a few years via tumblr/twitter, it's good to see how successful he's becoming and he deserves it completely. Into The Wild is such a beautiful song off his new EP 'The Wild' which is released in a few days I think.
2) Luther Vandross - Dance With My Father
I know this isn't a new song, but recently my Grandad died and this song was played at his funeral, so it suddenly has a whole lot of emotion attached to it for me. I really love the song, I think it is beautiful and although I do find it hard to listen to without crying at the moment, I find myself feeling quite comforted by it and it brings back a lot of personal memories for me.
3) The Courteeners - Are You In Love With A Notion
This song, from the new album ANNA, is so good and catchy. They opened with it at their gig last week and it got the crowd to an amazing start and I really can't stop listening to it. I wasn't keen on ANNA at first because I didn't think it lived up to their previous albums but it's 100% grown on me and this song is a particular favourite of mine.
4) Hudson Taylor - Battles
I recently saw Hudson Taylor supporting Jake Bugg on his most recent tour and I fell in love with them there and then. This song is one from their oldest EP but since i've only just started listening to their music, it's still quite new for me. I love this song and the rest of their music and I wouldn't be surprised if this is the band everyone will be talking about in the near future.
5) Bastille - Flaws
Bastille are the band everybody is loving at the moment and I am certainly one of those people. I first heard this song a few months ago playing in River Island and I liked it so much I googled the lyrics to find out who they were. Since then I've been completely hooked. Bastille are making an appearance at three of the festivals I will be attending this summer; Benicassim, Leeds Fest and Evolution and i'm so excited to see what they are like live, I really hope they don't disappoint.
I think I will do a post like this every week or so, because I know I enjoy seeing other peoples and finding new music, so hopefully my posts can help others find something new to listen to as well that they like. What are you listening to at the moment?
