Have you ever had one of those moments when you realize that a band or a song that you've come to love means more to you than you could have realized?

It might sound silly but it happens.  I'm not talking about a teenage romance where a super angsty kid listens to a song on repeat because it make him/her cry out all of her feelings, or want to get angry & take control.

No, not that.

I'm taking about a song that pulls the heartstrings.  A band who's entire album could be your soundtrack to life.

As a lover of long road trips, the open sky of the southwest, the mountains of the west coast, & even the ravens at the rest stops ... I feel as though First Aid Kit could be my soundtrack to life.  Why on earth I hadn't discovered them before beats me.

While listening to Pandora's "Indie Folk Revival" station they kept being played ... I had to know who they were.  I did know who they were.  I just didn't realize how good they were!

I know tastes in music vary a lot between people based on a lot of things.  But if that Pandora station sounds like anything you'd listen to, then maybe you might like these free spirited Swedish girls.

This has been my soundtrack of the week.  It'll probably carry on through the weekend.

More than anything, I can't wait to get this album on vinyl & be able to dance like a hippie in my living room.

  1. This is how I feel about blink-182. Heaven. x

  2. I love finding meaning in songs!
    I adore Jason Mraz, his songs have so much passion and meaning to them!
