The Misses and I have had a Rhapsody subscription for several years now. While quite a few people don’t care for subscription music services, I really enjoy it. It makes checking out new music really easy, since I don’t have to fork over any additional cash for something I might not like. So I can have a drastically different playlist from week to week. And since I’m in need of some new blogging material, I thought I’d start sharing my heavy rotation playlist here since I’m sure everyone else will find my taste in music as interesting as I do.
My playlist this week has been pretty short since I’ve been fixated on a few songs.
While I’m pretty late in getting to this song, I find it just way too catchy to ignore.
Don’t judge me.
“Once and Future Carpenter” — The Avett Brothers
As I said in my last post, The Avett Brothers are really growing on me. I’ve tried checking out their latest album “The Carpenter”, but so far I’ve only managed to really sample the first couple of tracks. That’s mainly due to the fact that I keep listening to them over and over. This tune is a beautifully crafted meditation on living life and accepting death. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
The other track off their new album. It’s not as deep as “Once and Future Carpenter”, but it is catchier. THat’s probably why it’s the first single.
You generally can’t go wrong with a Brad Paisley tune, and this one is no exception. His new single is a galloping ode to the finer things in life, such as Nascar and sweet tea.
Did I mention that The Avett Brothers were really growing on me? I was checking out some of their earlier stuff on YouTube and came across this little gem. Enjoy.
