Ask the Reader: New Music Recs

So, I am in a slight music rut. I love music, but being busier than I used to be has eliminated a lot of my music discovery time. So I turn to the very few of you who read this to ask what I should check out. In order to help you with my musical tastes, I'll provide lists of my most recent favs as well as my all time favorites. I'm limiting this to secular songs, as my husband has no problem helping me find new Christian artists/songs. Don't be afraid to suggest older songs/artists either!

New (to me) Picks
"Sea Green See Blue" by Jaymay
"Sleep" by Azure Ray
"You and I" by Ingrid Michaelson
"I Love the Rain the Most" by Joe Purdy
Shotgun (album) by Tony Lucca

Favorites
"Nightswimming" by R.E.M.
"Your Song" by Elton John
"American Music" by The Violent Femmes
"Ticket to Ride" & "In My Life" by The Beatles
"Wild Horses" by The Rolling Stones
"Reptila" by The Strokes
"Don't Think Twice" by Bob Dylan
"Fix You" & "Don't Panic" by Coldplay
"Honey & the Moon" by Joseph Arthur

Recently, the Polk family has been really enjoying the following:

* "Curse Your Branches" (album) - David Bazan // particularly "Hard to Be" and "Lost My Shape" although all the songs are great ... in my opinion.

* "Emotionalism" (album) - Avett Brothers // particularly "The Weight of Lies" and "Die Die Die"

* "Wrecking Ball" (album) - Emmylou Harris // particuarly "Where Will I Be"

* everything Iron & Wine but especially "The Shepherd's Dog" album and especially "Boy with a Coin"

* Also, if you haven't heard of Mayer Hawthorne, you should check them out.
