the bird

the bird

by Kathryn Joseph

One of the best songs (and albums) of the year. Kinda like Little Earthquakes era Tori Amos demos crossed with Joanna Newsom quirk. Soul stirring, introspective, and oh so lovely.

Disappointing (featuring Tracey Thorn)

Disappointing (featuring Tracey Thorn)

by John Grant

I am far from disappointed with John Grant's newest release. It captures why I'm so drawn to his music. This track seems to say, "Come on, everyone, and revel—despite your psychosis; life is beautiful." I turn this one up, and I'm instantly revelling. #johngrant

Under the Pressure

Under the Pressure

by The War on Drugs

This month I realized, while 2015 had some amazing highlights in music, I was not introduced to many new bands. With a little digging, enter, dramatically, The War on Drugs. Where the heck was I? This song is from easily one of the best LPs of the year, a ballsy 8 minute opening track that blends late 80s rock with the nostalgic dream pop I'm a total sucker for lately. #dontmissthis

Song of the Magi

Song of the Magi

by Anaïs Mitchell

When struggling with infertility, I became moved by the story of the three wise man travelling to see the baby Jesus beneath the Star of Bethlehem, who had come to "so love the world." I felt like I, too, was carrying my gifts of thanks and offering, but my wife and I had such a long road to travel, one that stretched before us across many lands. So every time I hear this song now, I weep at the awesome power of life's creation and how small we are in this great, great Order of Things.
