I was just thinking the other day that I hadn’t been listening to much music this month, but when I went to write up this post I realised that most of the stuff in this mixtape is actually new stuff (well, new to me anyway). I think my favourite discovery of the month is The White Buffalo, who I first heard (rather embarrassingly) on the soundtrack for Safe Haven. Perfect blend of acoustic folksy rock, which is pretty much my favourite genre.
I also have a little bit of a soft spot for Sleeping At Last’s cover of 500 Miles after hearing it in the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony. The ceremony itself was completely daft, a wee bit embarrassing but strangely entertaining and it couldn’t have been more Scottish in spirit even if it tried. I already love the Scottish Ballet so was pleasantly surprised to see them appear, accompanied by the beautiful arrangement of 500 Miles (raaaather different from the original!).
What have you been listening to this month?
