Feature and Follow Friday 1/13


Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Head over to one of their blogs to see how you can join in!


This week:
Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.


Answer: I've only really developed a music taste in the last few years. Here are a few bands/songs that are played pretty heavily on my ipod.


Civil Twilight: Check out 'Letters From the Sky'
Katie Costello: Check out 'Stranger'
Blitzen Trapper: Check out 'Furr'
Fleet Foxes: Pick a song...all amazing
Bon Iver: Ditto
Deer Tick: Check out 'Baltimore Blues, No. 1'
Metric: Check out 'Help I'm Alive'
Mumford & Sons
Muse
Iron & Wine
Coldplay


Obviously this isn't stuff on my workout playlist (LMFAO, Kesha, Pitbull, Katie Perry, Lady GaGa, 3OH!3, etc.), but this is my 'listening to music' music. It inspires my writing and makes me feel good. I'm sure there are some other ones I forgot. Oh, like Adele, but everyone knows she's amazing. That's a given :-)


Who are you listening to?

It seems I have no music taste EXCEPT for my workout playlist... Although I know that when I seriously need a writing playlist, some songs/artists like the ones you mentioned above will be some of the ones I turn to.
