the lumineers.

There are a few types of friends everyone should have: One who feels like family, one who makes you laugh so hard you cry, one who listens, one who pushes you outside your comfort zone, and one who knows all the coolest, most incredible music. A couple weeks ago, my Cool Music Friend introduced me to The Lumineers and I've basically had their album on repeat ever since.

Chances are you've already heard their single, "Ho Hey," but seriously: Go download the album. Every song is better than the last, but I have a San Francisco-esque soft spot for "Flowers in Your Hair."

What's your latest music obsession?

I'm obsessed with Beirut lately! Not new but around this time last year I saw them at Bonnaroo and they were amazing!

I'm kind of going through this phase in my music taste that I can't really explain... but I'm suddenly and strangely addicted to ambient, indie kind of pop stuff (clearly not the official genre name, but it's the only way I can describe it). I'm in love with Foster the People, M83, Passion Pit, MGMT... it's catchy and puts me in a good mood, so I guess that's reason enough to love it. :)

I saw them on Conan, they're great! Funny.. I already had "Ho Hey" scheduled as my "Tunes I'm Lovin' Tuesday" for next week :)

I love The Lumineers! Have you seen them live? Next time they are in SF you should definitely go to their show. They have a great energy to their live shows. So fun!

I heard "Ho, Hey" on Hart of Dixie and fell in love with it. Love The Lumineers!

So my 1 guilty pleasure is American Idol (But I think it's more for the people I watch it with) and I am SO obsessed with Phillip Phillips' covers & his single... And I'm actually quite pleased that the winner this year is someone who I would actually listen to on my own! He's got a Dave Matthews vibe, and his single kind of sounds like a light/happier Mumford & Sons...maybe if Mumford & Sons & Edward Sharpe & Magnetic Zeroes had a baby...
