Here are five albums I can't get enough of right now.
Artist: The Head and the Heart
Album: The Head and the Heart
Why I love it: It's the most "moving" music I have heard in a while. This band and this album definitely makes you feel.
For fans of: The Low Anthem, The Civil Wars
Artist: Sarah Jarosz
Album: Song Up In Her Head
Why I love it: There's nothing like some good ole blue grass, especially when it's a chick that's pickin'! And singing sweetly too I might add.
Bonus: She has a new album, "Follow Me Down," that was just released May 17th. I haven't listened to it yet, but I'm sure it will make an appearance on a future GS pick soon.
Artist: David Mayfield Parade
Album: David Mayfield Parade
Why I love it: It's country-meets-singer-songwriter, which turns out to be a pretty good combo!
Bonus: You HAVE to see this band live in person. I have never laughed so hard in my life, David Mayfield is highly entertaining. If you're in Bham, you're in luck! You can see them at Workplay June 22nd for only $10!
Artist: My Morning Jacket
Why I love it: It's so MMJ. I mean, it has their sound, but it's also a little bit inventive and different from previous albums. And that's what they seem to do with every album they produce.
For fans of: Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses
Bonus: Sign up on their website for a FREE track from this brand new album.
Artist: Fleet Foxes
Album: Helplessness Blues
Why I love it: There is no reason NOT to love this album. In one word, it's beautiful. You don't need much more of a reason to love an album than that.
For fans of: Blitzen Trapper, Bon Iver
