Follow Friday (24)



Hosted by Alison Can Read

Question of the Week: Many readers/bloggers are also big music fans. Tell us about a few of your favorite bands/singers that we should listen to in 2012.

When I was in college and only had time to read textbooks, I listened to a lot of music.  Epsecially music that didn't have a lot of words and some music that didn't have words at all.  I didn't really like classical music, so I sought out modern instrumental bands.  I disvoered Explosions in the Sky which is my favorite instrumental band!





Some of my other favorite bands include:

Death Cab for Cutie
She & Him
The Civil Wars
Ingrid Michaelson
Regina Spektor
Rilo Kiley
Florence and the Machine

Here is another favorite! Boyce Avenue does a lot of covers and they're awesome!

My husband got me into Regina Spektor a few years ago. Love the song Better. If you like instrumental, check out Apocalyptica's covers of Metallica. They are four professional cellists.

Awesome songs, btw ^_~
