{reader request} mid-week music moment: Stornoway

Can I just say: I LOVE you guys. Seriously. I have been reading the comments from my MWMM challenge post to find a song to feature each week, and your thoughtful responses and, ahem, amazing music taste makes me so happy. Apparently crowd sourcing from my blog is the best way to find new music!

Today's pick is a band is one I have never heard of or listened to before, and am currently kicking myself under my desk for my ignorance. Hannah - wherever you are, you're a shining star in my book right now. Here's her comment:

"Stornoway: Beachcombers Windowsill - I think you'll really like this... the entire album, start to finish, is a perfect feel good summer playlist! They are an alternative indie folk band from Oxford in England... I've seen them live twice and they're incredible! Have a listen and enjoy! :) x"

Dude. I am obsessed with this album. She's right - it's easy and summer-y and a pleasure to listen to from beginning to end. The first song hooked me immediately, so that's the one I've chosen to share with everyone. Please enjoy "Zorbing" and check out the whole album on Grooveshark here.

  2. Do you like the band Little Dragon? They're an electro rock band from Sweden and their newest album - Ritual Union - came out about a year ago.... I'm obsessed. The title song is my favorite, "Ritual Union". Happy listening!
