Portions For Foxes by Rilo Kiley
Since the first time I heard this song I knew I’d never grow tired of it. Everything is so well written from the music to Jenny Lewis’ amazing lyrics and melodies.
You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore by Demi Lovato
My girlfriend and I constantly listen to Demi Lovato and when her new singles starting coming out I was floored. She’s all voice and I love it. Just listen to how amazing her vibrato and range is on this track. So much soul in her voice all the time.
If It Makes You Happy by Sheryl Crow
One of my favorite songs of all time. Since I was a kid I’ve loved her smoky voice and awesome bluesy guitar playing. I actually found this CD at my parents’ house and it’s back in my car.
Glitter by Charly Bliss
I heard this band on a Barsuk Records playlist and I fell in love. They’re all of my tastes combined. Weird, awesome and quirky melodies with fun lyrics and wild musicianship. Reminds me of a band that would play in one of my favorite 90s movies at a house party.
It’s Okay by Land Of Talk
Jacob, the guitarist of Baggage showed me this song out of nowhere and it really moved me. I asked the guys what songs they’d want us to use as inspiration and this song came up again. It’s sad and oddly uplifting at the same time.
