My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 3/7/17
Listen here at Spotify

Tuesday. Mid-morning. The sun beating through third floor office windows. I’d really rather be near the water today, or on the road to somewhere, anywhere. It feels like a road trip kind of day. But it’s not. No, it’s more To-Do lists and projects to complete. So, let’s turn up the music and make our weave our way through My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day.

Today’s My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day starts with some Interpol, which seamless makes its way into Car Seat Headrest, and on into “Last Nite”, with The Strokes. Angel Olsen stops us with guitar licks and demands for silence, and kisses. It all ends with a Grizzly Bear’s song I hadn’t heard in ages.

You can click to listen to each video below, or choose the Spotify link to listen to the My Top 5 Song Obsessions of the Day :: Top Five playlist. I will add each five songs shared to the playlist each day. 

My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 3/7/17

1. “Slow Hands” :: Interpol

“And, I might stop and look upon your face,
disappear in the sweet, sweet gaze,
see the living that surrounds me,
dissipate in a violet blaze.”

Those lyrics are rather breathtaking when you isolate them, look at them, take them in. The whole song really. This is an incredible song.

2. “Fill in the Blank” :: Car Seat Headrest

“If I were split in two,
I would just take my fists,
so I could beat up the rest of me.”

A band recommendation from a coworker who is equally music-obsessed. This is a young band that you should keep your eye, and ears, on. Mark my words.

3. “Last Nite” :: The Strokes

“Well, I’ve been in town for just about fifteen minutes now,
and baby,
I feel so down.”

This song always reminds me of living in Chicago.

This song always makes me want to dance.

4. “Shut Up Kiss Me” :: Angel Olsen

“Shut up kiss me,
hold me tight.”

First song in my head this morning.

5. “Two Weeks” :: Grizzly Bead

“Would you always?
Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy?
Take your time.”

I’d forgotten about this band. In 3009, I really dug this album (Veckatimest). Spinning it anew today.

Here’s another Tuesday’s My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day.
