Sounds Good To Me Music Series: Day Late And Dollar Short

Pin It
I've been out of town visiting my momzie, grandmother and step-father, so today's post is a little late! 

Hope your Christmas was FANTASTIC! I know that mine was. Great food, more love than I could ever imagine, more laughs than my belly could stand and a great vacation to top it off. I am truly fortunate!

I LOVE this song by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros––a large group of traveling musicians who (from what I gather) live communal style––a concept that rather fascinates me. As if living with one other person doesn't have it's own set of complexities....could you imagine living with 10? It sounds like a blast nevertheless! Their energy is contagious and after finishing up long road trip myself, I couldn't keep this song out of my head until we arrived back home early this morning. 

A quieter, more contemplative sound from M. Ward––a musician that I can literally set on repeat and never get tired of hearing. I listen to him more often than I'd like to admit. If you like this song, I highly, highly recommend the albums "Post-War" and "Transfiguration of Vincent." You are in for a treat, trust me. 

I have some good 'interiors/pretties' posts coming up on the blog this week, so check back in the next few days!

Aren't they? I'm a bohemian at heart. I can't deny it....but you'd never know by looking at me ;)

You would really like that M. Ward. It's really calm and multi-dimensional. Beautiful music.

Both are great songs. I LOVE M.Ward, I discovered him on Pandora. Pandora, sadly has commercials now which bugs but I still listen while I am working:)

I have a mega-crush on Alex Ebert (the lead singer for Edward Sharpe) without the beard he's absolutely gorgeous. And I love that he's so free. How long until I replace my life sized Justin Bieber poster with one of him...hmmmmm ;) They are also on my bucket list of live shows.

E. Lee: I think you can subscribe to Pandora (totally worth it) and not have commercials. M. Ward is another bucket lister. If he plays in New Orleans, I will DEFINITELY let you know :)
