I have been a drafting fool at work and I need good music to write to. Thus, I hunt and hunt for random good stuff... plus LB is the master at finding awesome tunes. I am just now discovering Need to Breathe and after reading this interview with the band, I am in awe of everything they have made. (Bold, but true). My two favorites? Wasteland & Difference Maker... oh shoot, three favorites... Brother.
Birds of Tokyo has the weirdest band name ever, but I dig this song.
Also, pretty much everything by Miner has been in rotation, but Carousel has two of the three things that LB and Andy say make a great song: piano, slow that leads up to shouting, and swearing. No swearing in this one, but 2/3 is pretty good.
Tom Odell's Another Love reminds me of watching Parenthood with Andy = my happy place. That show people... as Esther has said, "I am glad this season is over because I can't emotionally take it anymore." #TeamBraverman.
Vance Joy's Riptide: the band/dude's last name is Joy... just get on board.
And finally, I have been rocking out to this Christian jam while drafting stuff at work because it reminds me to do the hardest thing in the world: "Let go and let God." Here are the lyrics for this worship song... I think they are pretty phenonmenal.
"Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)"
Your grace abounds in deepest waters Your sovereign hand Will be my guide Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me You've never failed and You won't start now
So I will call upon Your name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise My soul will rest in Your embrace For I am Yours and You are mine
[6x] Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander And my faith will be made stronger In the presence of my Savior
I will call upon Your name Keep my eyes above the waves My soul will rest in Your embrace I am Yours and You are mine
