Summer Sounds

Summer is where I always create my favorite music memories. 
I don't know what it is about this season.
The music is more piercing, more influential.

Lately there have been a lot of great album releases (or news of up-coming releases) and I just wanted to share what Baby P and I are spending these summer days listening to...

Willie Nelson : Heroes

 The Welcome Wagon : Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices
Trums and I have been fans for years, but I've always struggled with their borderline Sufjan Stevens wackiness. However, I'm happy to say that this is my favorite album to date and I always get excited about musicians who use their talent to glorify Christ. Nothin' better.

Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors : Through The Night
My favorite album of the summer so far. Never been a huge fan of their stuff (except for Ellie Holcomb's solo album) but this record has completely won me over. They cover some of the best-- Patty Griffin, Bob Dylan, John Prine, U2, Tom Petty. It's seriously good and your ears will thank you for purchasing it.

The Tallest Man On Earth : There's No Leaving Now

The Lower Lights : A Hymn Revival Volume 2
I can't even tell you how excited I am for this album. It releases June 26 and I am just itching to have a listen. I've expressed my love for quality worship music many times and I think The Lower Lights are the best. I cringe at the modern day remakes of hymns on the radio and I can breathe easy knowing that these guys are doing them justice. You can hear a few sneak previews on their website here.

I made a little playlist for my girl of a few new favorites.
We have been communicating a lot more these past few weeks and I can't tell you how excited that makes me. She responds when I rub my tummy, play music, and do my yoga stretches. The other day when Truman came to kiss me goodbye before he left for work Coco started barking and she even responded to that! Needless to say, we're already having a lot of fun together.

You can have a listen (or subscribe to) my growing playlist here...

Cheers to warm days and great tunes,
J.
