The More I Know, The More I Realize I Don’t Know

It all started St. Patrick’s Day with a desire to find some Irish music. This lead to an internet search of Irish bands/musicians and a hunger to hear new music. To be fair, it wasn’t all new material that I wanted to hear, but that certainly drove the list. As I perused the list, I realized I didn’t want just music or styles that I knew, I wanted whatever caught my eye (from a band, song title, or album title standpoint). I formed this St. Paddy’s Day Playlist:

Be forewarned, this is just a random playlist of songs – they haven’t been edited for a proper mix or for style or for anything else – something simply caught my attention. It’s raw and there are things on the list I really like and things I just attribute to the moment.

This reminds me that I never got to do a musical year in review for 2014, which is a shame because there were, in my opinion, some gems. With that in mind, here are some notable 2014 offerings (in no particular order):

Ariel Pink – Pom Pom: Dinosaur Carebears

Beck – Morning PhaseWave

Brody Dalle – Diploid LoveCarry On

Caribou – Our LoveCan’t Do Without You

Future Islands – SinglesSeasons Change (Waiting On You)

Hamilton Leithauser – Black Hours11 O’Clock Friday Night

Hundred Waters – The Moon Rang Like A BellChambers (Passing Train)

Lana Del Rey – UltraviolenceUltraviolence

The New Pornographers – Brill BruisersBrill Bruisers

The War on Drugs – Lost in the DreamRed Eyes

What Moon Things – What Moon ThingsThe Astronaut

Wild Beasts – Present TenseWanderlust

Feel free to share anything that caught your eye or ear from 2014 or so far in 2015.

Have something to add?
