Books? What Books? Not Today! by Abigaile

I'm gonna be a lil' rebel and not write about books.
Nope, I'm going to mix things up a little bit, and write about music.
Ah, yes music. Isn't that awesome?
Sometimes I think it just might be better than books. 
But that's just sometimes. 

I'm going to teach you little bookworms about some bands that may just make you put down that Twilight book your swooning over. But I must warn you, some of this music is really... Odd. Might make you think, what is wrong with this girls head? There is probably something wrong with my head, but this music is crazy good. I hope you love it. Now, if you have ever read my blog, music&moshing, you may think, "Oh no. She is going to make me listen to some hardcore stuff..." Nah. Sorry. Not today, folks. Today, I'm going to introduce y'all to mostly Indie Rock/Pop. 
So, here's the tunes...

First of al... If you haven't heard of Death Cab For A Cutie , than I have a lot of work to do.
Death Cab is an Indie Rock band, and the vocalist/guitarist/pianist Ben Gibbard is also in The Postal Service (sadly not together anymore), and All American Quarterback.
Here are some of my favorite songs by Death Cab For A Cutie:

Next, is a really weird band from Iceland, Sigur Rós.
Now, don't listen to it and judge. His voice is really odd. Just listen to the beauty of it all.
Here are some of my favorite songs by them:

Now, here's a band I heard of today, actually. Sufjan Stevens is my new addiction. And Let me tell you, this guy is great. I love him. I don't now much of his stuff... yet. But I will probably by the end of this week. I might just get a little bit obsessed. But just a bit... And, did I mention this dude is reallyreallyreally cute? Yep, he's pretty much perfect. Sufjan Stevens music is kinda Folk, kinda Indie Pop. It just depends on what song you listen to. Here are some of the songs I really love by him. 

Now, usually, I don't like girl singers. They tend to annoy me. I don't know what it is about it, but I just prefer a guys voice when it comes to singing. There are only a couple of chick singers that I can listen to. And Madi Diaz is one of them. She's crazy good. So, here are my favorites by her. 

Okay, I hope you guys aren't to disappointed that I wrote about music, and not books. I just wanted to try something a little bit different here guys, and we all like different... right?

  1. Best bands EVER. Seriously. I love them all (and have, for a very long time.) What did you think of Death Cab's latest album? Did it creep you out at all?

  2. Narrow Stairs right? Nah, it didn't creep me out... But, the song I Will Possess Your Heart does have very creepy lyrics. Haha, like as in, Ben Gibbard is a creeper. I LOVED the album though. (:

  3. Death Cab has been around for a long, long time. Awesome band. And Sigur Ros - complete awesomeness.

  4. Yeah, I know Death Cab has been around forever... I just love them so much. I couldn't resist putting them in this post. And yes, Sigur Ros is awesome. Have you heard his other band Jonsi? Their song Go Do is amazing.
