Current favourites - According to iTunes

Music has been saving my sanity this week. I'm trying to get as much work as possible done before I go home for Easter (roll on Saturday!) so I've been clocking up hours sat at my desk. I've always had to slog it for my grades, which I don't mind too much, but I do get ridiculously a tiny bit  jealous of people who manage to get by with minimal work. I'm really funny about music when I'm working - sometimes I absolutely can't stand it, and other times I really need it to keep me focused. I'm really into mellowed out, guitary, folk-ish music at the moment (not sure if that's technically a genre) and it makes really good background music. I always find it really interesting/funny/embarrassing to look back on playlists of music that I was really into when I was younger, me and my brother used to burn our own CD's and give them completely ridiculous names. Now everything's digital I tend to delete playlists when I don't listen to them and I miss being able to look back over them. Guess that's one of the downsides, huh?
Anyway... back to the point of this post ;) According to iTunes these are my current favourites...

1// Bon Iver - Beth/Rest - for some reason this song reminds me of pine trees and rain, its good stuff.
2// The Paper Kites - Featherstone
3// Maroon 5 - Lucky Strike - bit of an odd one out! Not really sure why I love this so much...
4// Andrew Belle - The Ladder
5// Benjamin Francis Leftwich - Box of Stones
6// Iron & Wine - Boy With A Coin
7// Carrie Underwood - Blown Away
8// Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues
9// Tyrone Wells - In Between The Lines
10// Of Monsters And Men - Dirty Paws - if you want to read something weird then google the lyrics... so odd!

I'm always on the hunt for new music - so if you've got any recommendations I'd love to hear them!

The plus side of desk-time? Sunsets like this...


  1. I love Of Monsters and Men, and that song is super weird! I love it though :)

  2. Mumford&sons are a band that's very "folk-ish" there my current favorite xx

  3. ERM AS IF I'M NOT FOLLOWING YOUR BLOG. What a div! I love Of Monsters and Men at the moment, I've never really listened to the lyrics, I just sing along blindly! Your sunset photo is gorgeous xx

  4. I usually cannot listen to music because I end up signing along or listening to the lyrics. I'm a daydreamer, so I'm easily distracted.

    I like your song list. Have you listened to Father John Misty. He is the drummer from Fleet Foxes and now has his own thing going on. Worth a listen if you haven't.

  5. Love that photo! And I'm the same way with assignments, I need to slog away at them (especially essays) but in somethings I can just breeze through!

  6. If you love that kind of folk sound, you will love the Avett Brother's Carpenter album. Every song is like pure gold. Go get it :)

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! :D

  7. Yes Yes Yes. Your music taste. Just yes. I don't really know what to recommend because it seems like you've got it all sorted really :') ♥

  8. Love mellow-y guitar-y music, your playlist looks pretty damn good to me! As Erin has said, The Avett Brothers are awesome. That sunset is also incredible, gorgeous picture! x

  9. I really love most of those songs! You should check out Freelance Whales :)

  10. So many of my favourites there! Will definitely check out the rest. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment by the way, I'm so glad I came across yours as a result. Absolutely ADORE your blog Vic, love your photos!

  11. That's a lovely selection of music. I really like The Shins when I'm working - nice and upbeat without being distracting. I have to slog for good grades too, it really is annoying!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - I love getting to know you guys and I really appreciate each and every note you leave!
