Lately Listens

Do you guys ever feel like you listen to the same music over and over again? I know I’ll go through phases where I really only listen to 3 albums or so over the course of the month. Here are some of the artists I’ve had on heavy rotation lately:

Modest Mouse – Strangers to Ourselves


Ok, Modest Mouse is my favorite band. I’ve loved them since I was 14 years old and I think it’s safe to say I’ve heard all their songs at least once. It had been almost 8 years since they put out an album, so I was itching to hear this one. I was not at all disappointed by this album, and apparently they’re already in the studio recording their next album with Krist Novoselic from Nirvana. I can’t wait!

Favorite/least favorite – Sugar Boats/Pistol

Sia – 1000 Forms of Fear


I was surprised by how much I like this album as a whole. All the songs are all incredibly intimate. The first time I listened to the album I cried. Chandelier and Elastic Heart have become pretty popular singles, but there’s so much more to this album. I think Sia’s pretty visionary, the way she presents herself, the openness with her audience, it’s really hard to come by in a pop act.

Favorite/least favorite – Burn the Pages/Cellophane

Death Cab for Cutie – Transatlanticism


Ok, this album is over 10 years old at this point, but it’s still one of my favorites.┬áThis album will always be one of my favorite albums, there’s so much nostalgia associated with it. Death Cab came out with a new album this year. I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, but I think I’ll give it a go soon.

Favorite/least favorite – Expo ’86/Sorry, N/A

What have you guys been listening to lately? Any recommendations for me?
