I’ve been all about the acoustic folksy music this month. Perfect for rainy February afternoons. Undoubtedly my most-listened to band of the month is First Aid Kit, a duo of Swedish songwriting sisters. They’re a relatively recent discovery for me (thanks Spotify, I knew there was a reason I paid you every month!) but I’ve been making up for lost time by listening to their albums obsessively throughout the month. Another new-to-me sibling folk band (erm, perhaps my new favourite genre?) are The Staves and I’ve been enjoying their album Dead & Born & Grown for late-night listening.
There are also a few old favourites on this month’s mixtape, like Iron & Wine’s Such Great Heights. Awwwcch, this song reminds me of 2005 so much, mostly thanks to the Garden State soundtrack! New Romantic by Laura Marling also makes an appearance; I used to love this song so much but hadn’t listened to it in ages until I was reminded about it by Gill’s cover version.
