Hello there! I hope your weekend went well. Today is the last day of the boys’ holiday break before they go back to school, and I must say that I am really going to miss having them around all day! We listened to a whole lot of music since we stayed home so much, so I thought I would do my best to start up Music Mondays again. Here are three that have been playing over and over in our house.
“Last War” – Haley Bonar. I am a huge fan of Haley, and I am lucky enough to have hung out with her a few times when she has visited St. Louis. She is not only an incredible musician, but also just a very cool, very down-to-earth lady. This song is one of my favorites, plus the video is pretty bad-ass!
Tiny Desk Concert Series – Shovels & Rope – I first heard about them through Jess (thank you, Jess). This husband and wife duo of Carry Ann Hearst and Michael Trent is on repeat around here- their energy is amazing (skip ahead to 5:40 for one of my favorites: Birmingham and 10:45 for high-energy song Bad Luck) and always gets Milo dancing with me in the kitchen while I cook! I can’t wait to see them here at Off Broadway in February. Woo!
“Covered in Dust” – Andy Shauf- I find his pure voice so appealing- but I must say that my absolute favorite songs are those which include his clarinet. I couldn’t find my favorite version of “Drink My Rivers” from his album The Bearer of Bad News online, but trust me when I tell you it’s worth a listen on Spotify or if you can find it elsewhere.
