Mondays are for Music #2

Monday, January 12, 2015



I like to say that my tastes in music are varied because I've been in art school and I've worked as a DJ at a radio station while at college. Discovering new tracks is a lot of fun for me, and I consider browsing SoundCloud or new Spotify playlists an adventure in and of itself.

While I love a wide variety of genres - Pop, Christian, Electronic, Singer-Songwriter - I've been gravitating towards dance-y (and generally epic) tracks lately. I thought I'd share some of these tracks I've found with you. :)


"Divinity" by Porter Robinson

I found this gem on iTunes, and it's been a joy to listen to on repeat. It's not quite dubstep, not quite dance, and not quite trance, but every element works amazingly well.  (The entire album is actually really good, too!)




"Keep Going" by Panda Eyes & Datphoria feat. COZY

Ever since I discovered dubstep back when I was a freshman in college, I've relished the really, really good dubstep tracks I've found over the years, from artists like Skrillex to Bassnectar. This song is one that I discovered recently, and I literally can't stop listening to it; it has an epic feel that I love, and would be a good track to introduce new listeners to the dubstep genre (either this or "Gold Dust" by Neon Flux). So far, this song has kind of been my theme song; I literally can't stop dancing to it when I play it.




"Song of the Lonely Mountain" a capella cover by Peter Hollens

I discovered this song on Christmas Eve of last year. If you like a capella music in any way, shape, or form, I definitely recommend checking out Peter Hollens' work. He's done TONS of great covers over the years, and this one is no exception. This song is from the first Hobbit movie, but it got me pumped for the third. (On a side note, I did see the last Hobbit film recently! The feels are mixed, but I still enjoyed watching it.) But, regardless of if you're an LoTR fan or not, this cover is way too epic to pass up. :)




What music have you been into lately?
