What I’ve Been Listening to Lately
What We Said. I’m all caught up (I skipped a lot of the earlier interviews, don’t care for those), I wish they had 2x a week with a Patreon or something, I’m missing binging. Life advice and girl from a pair of hilarious best friends. Hilarious secret spilling episodes (so much for avoiding gossip), and I just found this via Spotify lists.
What Next? I found this on my Spotify suggestions. It’s not a super favorite at least not yet, for one thing I prefer more humor and two hosts.
It’s funny, both Jaci Marie Smith and Michelle Reed are Youtubers, but I found their podcasts first.
I’m not a huge music person, a song has to catch me from someone, its hard for me to “try” music. And I’m so picky, one song that I love doesn’t mean that I will love the rest unfortunately. And really, I prefer quiet most often. Both of these I heard on Instagram, the first on an ice skating story from Vintage Facade, and the second on I thought a post from Foraging Pages, but I can’t find it.
Primavera by Ludovico Einaudi. Its still melancholy, which is another reason I shy from music, its always mostly melancholy or unhappy or mean (pop particularly).
Soldier, Poet, King by The Oh Hellos. This is just, oh perfect. I love folk, true folk, and this feels like the old real stuff with just a sparkle of modern.
I don’t think I could live without music, so it’s interesting to find someone who’s the opposite of that. I need to listen to more podcasts, I’ve been neglecting the ones I was listening to.
Sound and smell are too senses that just push me over the edge easily plus music and my mood and mind are often a bad mix. I listen to podcasts (something I was loth to do previously for the auditory reason) at work because I get so bored, I’m still bored but it’s less.
I love Einaudi and The Oh Hellos! I hear ya on the depressingness of music though. A couple of my go-to bands are Half Alive and Dayglow, they have a retro/vintage pop sound and are pretty upbeat.
I’ll have to look those up.
Have you tried music by Thomas Bergersen? A lot of the movie trailers might have used his music. It has a different feel — they are all instrumentals on an epic scale. Somehow they come across as motivational / inspirational, which takes away the “melancholy” of music. ~Lex
I haven’t but I do like movie scores often, I will have to look him up, thanks for the recommendation.
I’d forgotten about Ludovico Einaudi! I can sort of play a couple of his songs on the piano but it’s been forever. I should look him up again
I’d never heard him before, I need to listen to more.
