There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.
Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.
Maybe you will find a new favorite.
About 10 years ago, there seemed to be an explosion of folk/rock groups. Many members of the bands sporting hipster beards (not the ladies) and having an acoustic flair. There also seemed to be a plethora of “and the” bands.
- Noah and the Whale
- Matthew and the Atlas
- The Wind and the Wave
- Ruben and the Dark
- Sherman Downey and the Ambiguous Case (featured on April 11)
- The Head and the Heart
There are more, but that’s all I can name off the top of my head.
I could listen to Another Story by The Head and the Heart over and over. It’s a beautiful song:
All We Ever Knew
I found this song on my old iPhone along with years of text messages. Good messages. Mundane messages. Memories. It was the only song on the device.
Hope you enjoyed my selections.
