What are you listening to?

Makeup is my second love, but music has always been my first! Despite not being musically inclined at all, I am obsessed! I don't go a day, or usually a few hours, without listening to music. I love the fact that a song can trigger so many emotions, memories, and completely change your mood.  I am on a never ending search for new artists, so tell me: What are you listening to right now? Do you have a favorite record/band/song? 

Re: What are you listening to?

Current obsession: Hurray for the Riff Raff's (not to be confused with Riff Raff) newest album. It's a gorgeous combination of a sultry voice, poetic and political lyrics, and a blend of rock, folk, and Latin. 

 

 

And...I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm liking Harry Style's new music, too. 

Re: What are you listening to?

They are coming to SLC this year I hope to see them. I love her voice. 

Re: What are you listening to?

Okay, I also have to say that I love music. All kinds of it. I don't really have the energy anymore (and the older I get, the more I hate crowds), but I used to go to shows within a two hour drive, even on weeknights. Many of my favorite memories involve these adventures. Jenny Lewis and Nikki Lane at a historic Texas dance hall. Shovels and Rope, Elle King, and Phosphorescence at Willie Nelson's ranch with a special performance by Willie himself. Snoop Dogg inside a giant Doritos vending machine. Local Natives (one of my favorite bands) at an after party in an old ballroom. Kendrick Lamar inside a tent in a parking lot, and Bon Iver in the same tent. Of Monsters and Men in a backyard. This is what happens when you spend your 20's living in a music city where anyone from Kanye West to Robert Plant play (free!) secret shows, and half the fun is the Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist type of adventure to find the shows, especially during a major music conference every March. For about six years, I took a few days off work in March for this. 

 

This took me down memory lane, and it all seems like half a lifetime ago. I went through Instagram to see some old pictures I had taken (some from when I was press, but most are bad cellphone photos) and had to share a few.

WOW!!! I'm jealous! I wish I lived near a music mecca.  

Re: What are you listening to?

Oh, I still have a Last FM account! Here's my top artists from the last 30 days. The scrobble counts would usually be way higher, but I've sadly been in too many work meetings to even listen to music at my desk lately.

Re: What are you listening to?

Update: revisiting Corrine Bailey Rae's sophomore album, which is a great reminder that I'm an emotional cry baby lol. This album came out after her husband passed away, and I'm literally at my desk dying on the inside. SUCH. AN. AMAZING.ALBUM. Ughhh so many feels!

Cheers!
Nikko

Re: What are you listening to?

I love Jhene Aiko, @NikkoBT!

 

One of my favorite workout songs is Unstoppable by Santigold. Another is How to Be a Heartbreaker by Marina and the Diamonds. My running playlist has a really odd selection of music and includes a mix of kpop, indie, and EDM...

Re: What are you listening to?

Hi @txcatx! So, I checked out the songs by Marina and the Diamonds and Santigold and love them! 

Cheers!
Nikko

Re: What are you listening to?

@txcatx Ooh! I've only heard a handful of songs by Santigold and Marina and the Diamonds, but I'll definitely have to check those songs out ^_^

Cheers!

Re: What are you listening to?

I love this thead! 

 

I listen to a lot of artists and a lot of different genres so here a couple of songs I grabbed from my spotify playlist. Smiley Happy 

 

Ed Sheeran - Divide (okay I'm loving so many songs from this album, if you like his type of music, go listen!!) 

 

Sam Smith - Drowning Shadows (I did not know of this song until about a week ago, I can't believe I've been missing out!)

 

Khalid - Location (I'm honestly the worst at describing genres, but I'd say this would go under R&B?)

 

One Woman Man - John Legend (His song from the new 50 shades movie, the movies aren't great but the soundtracks are actually pretty great!)

 

Selfish - Future (It has rihanna, what more do you need? Smiley Wink

XOXO,
Marieke

Re: What are you listening to?

hi @MariekeBT!

the new ed sheeran is SO good, i'm loving his new, yet still him, sound!

 

sam smith is incredible- his songs carry so much emotion.

 

i'm a fan of khalid too! i think he's considered hip hop/r+b. he has such a soulful voice.

 

i love me some riri too!!

It's going to be a sailboat, in the water at night. With my top five favorite songs incorporated into the scene. Time To Waste will be in the waves, my all time favorite song by them. Ruin It will be the name of the boat. Love Love, Kiss Kiss will be the mast. Off the Map and Into the Night will be the sails. 

 

That would be an awesome tattoo, where would you put it? 

Re: What are you listening to?

omgggg @Samtian i love that idea! those songs are amazing. what a beautiful, thoughtful tattoo. do you have any yet?

 

and i have no idea! i haven't gotten a tattoo since i was 18, so i'm so torn on placement. 

i have so many ideas though!!
