Music Mondays?

Here's a few songs i've been listening to this week. Some of it might be quite old or you might of heard of it already but I hope you like it. I'm a bit of a baby indie as you can probably tell, though I hate the music snobbery that often goes with that label, I don't really like to limit my music taste and I enjoy Rihanna and Kesha just as much as any other artist! I have to admit I did see this video of 'Indie Amy', which put me off all things indie for a while - the whole point of 'indie' is to be individual but it seems to have become very stereotypical. 

Big Sleep - Ghosts (Up and coming!)
The Vaccines - If You Wanna
The Vaccines - Wreckin' Bar (You've probs heard this in Skins)
Babyshambles - I Wish (Laid back and lovely, i'm a little bit in love with Pete!)
Bon Iver - Skinny Love (Genuinely can't decide which version I like best they're both really different, so i've put both on, if you're a Radio One listener sure you've heard Birdy's version)
Birdy - Skinny Love
The Fratellis - Whistle for the Choir (Quite old, but i like listening to this when i'm feeling a bit depressed! Also their scottish accents are hot.)
Ellie Goulding - Lights
Brick by Brick - Arctic Monkeys (New Arctic Monkey's track, what do you think? I like it but I don't think it's as good as some of their previous songs! It reminds me a bit of Oasis and the recent Beady Eye song as well for some reason)
True Faith - George Michael (Okay I only listened to this once, I love ya George but this is only worth a listen due to it's awfulness and diabolical use of auto-tuning!)

The Leeds and Reading Fest' line up is announced tonight along with tickets on sale! Every year I plan on going and I always end up not going, was especially gutted I had the chance to go last minute last year, but I had to work, and missed out on the chance on seeing the oh so amazing Libertines reunion! And more importantly I missed out on 'poo girl' I don't know if any of you have heard that story?! Anyway if anybody is reading this, are you planning on going to any festivals this year?

Okay since I posted the above the line up has been announced! I have to admit i'm a little disappointed, and there's no acts i'm 'wow' about, Arcade Fire and The Libertines were a real 'yay!' moment for me last year, makes me even more gutted I missed it! Nevertheless I wouldn't say no to a ticket for this year!


  1. *gasp* Bon Iver! Yum. I love this song, though i've never heard the birdy version so am off to give that a listen now! x
