Music Monday: Trampled by Turtles.

I can’t be the only who sometimes thinks, “I need a little more banjo in my life.” Well, even if I am I think you’ll agree that Trampled by Turtles is just what you need from time to time. With upbeat modern American folk style music, Trample by Turtles has become a soundtrack for summer. Their new album Stars and Satellites features some more great songs including the aptly named Walt Whitman and Beautiful.

Here is Wait So Long off of their 2010 release Palomino

Beautiful. (Not an official video but the song is oh so good)

Music Monday: The Lumineers.

Lots of people have recently began to notice a band called The Lumineers. Their music has that modern American, folk-rock, roots, ┬ájust-feels-right-to-my-soul quality that I have come to love. Few bands really capture my attention like The Lumineers have. They have begun what could be the makings of the American dream story with rough beginnings and determination to what I’m sure will be success. As their website puts it, “Born out of sorrow, powered by passion, ripened by hard work, The Lumineers have found their sound when the world needs it most.”
