» there’s bandcamp players embedded in this post, which you won’t see in your feed reader.
this post is one i recommend you read/listen to on my actual website.
may every year is new zealand music month and i try to always make time to find some new (to me) artists/tunes to enjoy.
here’s the top five tracks/albums on my loving list from this year:
I was drawn to this album because of the title. Not because I am a weary traveller, but because there must be some and I wondered what kind of music might be written for them. This album by Holly Arrowsmith gets better every time I listen to it.
I followed a link on the interwebs and found my way to a youtube video of this song, which compelled me to look them up on bandcamp. The perfect end-of-day-I’m-gonna-sit-and-watch-the-sunset-with-a-glass-of-wine kinda song.
I’d never heard of Nadia Reid before. I”m glad I have now. Beautiful voice and a rich, soulful album.
I am a big fan of Nathan Haines and have seen him a couple of times live – once in NZ and once at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s in London. This track reminds me of trips to Bali and makes me feel like dancing.
I have caught myself humming snatches of this track whilst I’m doing other things. Catchy tune and lovely vocals.
I’m always on the hunt for new music – what have you been listening to, and loving, lately?
