Warning: This post contains a high concentration of mandolins and fiddles.
I don't know what it is about heat that just makes me feel all folksy.
Anyway, here's what I'm listening to during this encounter with summer weather...
1. Little Big Town - Pontoon
because "Tornado" seemed a tad inappropriate
2. Sara Watkins - Long Hot Summer Days
I wish they had the album version available for me to post from youtube, but alas... this is pretty good anyway.
3. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - Man on Fire
I especially love this video because it has the New York City ballet in it!
4. Langhorne Slim and the Law - Bad Luck
5. Thao and the Get Down Stay Down - We the Common (for Valerie Bolden)
a little bit like Feist, if you haven't heard her before
6. Mumford and Sons - Roll Away Your Stone
7. The Decemberists - Sons and Daughters
8. Jack White - Love Interruption
9. Old Crow Medicine Show - Wagon Wheel
10. Alabama Shakes - Always Alright
I love this song so much, but iTunes won't let me buy it unless I buy the whole Silver Linings Playbook soundtrack. I hate it when they do that. Anyway, awesome summer song.
