2014 music to my year

2014 has ended, and what else should we talk about besides book? MUSIC.

Like 2013’s music post, I wanted to take a look at all the albums and songs I listened to in 2014.

I tend to listen to music albums at a time. My go-to album for the first nine month of the year was Arctic Monkey’s AM, which is fucking amazing and is my absolutely favorite album of all time. I listened to it over and over and over again on repeat, never tiring of Alex Turner’s voice or the gorgeous lyrics. And when I transitioned away, it was sad, but I had the albums of my music queens (Jessie Ware + Leighton Meester).

Here are the albums I listened to a lot. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)

  (Thank you to the lovely Sandra of Tea Between Books for this idea.)

THAT’S RIGHT. Music is the topic for today! We are talking a break from talking about books, so I can talk about the music I have been listening to all throughout 2013. What usually attracts me to certain songs or musicians is through the beats and the instruments. I don’t know how to explain (since music is hard for me to talk about), but I feel a pull to it if I am able to dance to it and sing with it. I don’t care if the lyrics are teenage angsty or whatever. I like what I like. :D

Let’s take a look at the type of music I listen to in 2013. Shall we?

BΔSTILLE is an English rock band formed in London in 2010. It began as a solo project by singer-songwriter Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. The four-piece band consists of members Dan Smith, Chris Wood, William Farquarson and Kyle Simmons. The name of the band derives from Bastille Day – an event that takes place on the same day as Dan Smith’s birthday, July 14.1

Albums: Bad Blood, Other People’s Heartache, Bloody Shirt, Other People’s Heartache Pt. 2

I am OBSESSED with them. They are my favorite band of all time. No musician comes close to how much I love Bastille. Ever since I listened to their mixtapes (in which they remixed and covered various songs) in January, I fell in love. Hopelessly in love. Dan Smith has a very haunting voice when he sings. I love it when I can hear his accent (that’s one of the reasons why I love British musicians ;D). His voice has that lovely echoey quality to it. It creates this kind of dark atmosphere that reminds me a little of Twin Peaks. I don’t know to describe it. I just love it.

Songs I like: Flaws, Pompeii, Laura Palmer, Overjoyed, Icarus, Weight of Living Pt 1, These Streets, Haunt (Demo), Poet, Durban Skies, Sleepsong, Forever Ever (ft. Kate Tempest & Jay Brown), Killer (ft. F*U*G*Z), Sweet Pompeii, Dreams (ft. Gab Aplin)
