To be honest I was always a louder music kind of girl. I don’t mind a good song from other genre, it’s fun to shake your butt to a catchy song. Every day work demands a special kind of focus from me, I can’t do it while having live streaming or concert videos in the background. I constantly need to know, what’s happening on stage. With known music it’s different, sure. I am not distracted by it. Mostly.
But the point of this post is not wining about not being able to watching YouTube videos all the time (thou sometimes I’m overdosing on cat videos).
YouTube is a great place to find new music and artists. The only time I was listening to music kind of close to indie folk was in 2008, with Panic! At the Disco’s “Pretty Odd”. Taking under consideration my playlist at the time, with a mix of Marilyn Manson, 30 seconds to Mars and other bands in between, I could be mistaken. Anyway, I was surfing through auto play option and at some point I found magnificent playlists filled with *surprise, surprise* indie and indie folk music.
Some of my favorites are:
James Bay – Stealing Cars
José Gonzalèz – Cycling Trivialities
Keaton Henson – 10am, Gare du Nord
Ed Prosek – What it Takes
Ed Prosek – Hold On Tight
Rod Ladgrove – Love, The Way It Hurts
Nick Mulvey – Fever to the Form
Roscoe James Irwin – Arrows
Bears Den – Above The Clouds Of Pompeii
I have to say, I’ve never felt more calm at work (even if for most of the time I want to just go out and not come back), as while listening to those songs, and many more. How can you be angry, if you only can imagine this?
