let's talk music.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011


we went to the gramercy theatre last week to hear matt wertz and ben rector play. i haven't been to a concert in a year or so and i forgot how much i enjoy it.

i'm a sucker for a guy with an acoustic guitar and a voice, including the hubs. it's pretty much how he sealed the deal.

i love folksy stuff like nickel creek and the decemberists, and of course the big names like john mayer and dave matthews. when i'm in the mood, i put frank sinatra and coltrane on the playlist.

what kind of music do you listen to?

I listen to everything, but my heart is in techno. I am a former/retired raver.

my boyfriend loves the decemberists, too. one of my favorite bands ever is stone temple pilots. i've seen them live a bunch of times and they are truly amazing! but generally, i can get into a little bit of everything. and how can you not love sinatra?

I am one of those lame people who says they listen to everything. But it's kinda of true. For example, today I listened to Bob Dylan, Sigur Ros and Jay-Z.

My sweetie is a classical guitarist, and while I'm pretty sure he thinks he drives me crazy with his practice, I can't help but be wooed! When it's not classical (which it nearly always is-Strauss operas, Baroque listening assignments, Brahms symphonies), I love David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, and lots of classic rock!

I'm an indie-rock kind of girl, who is a complete and utter sucker for indie-meets-country like Ryan Adams and the like. Fleet Foxes have my heart for so many reasons! I also love the sad sappy stuff, like The National - such a dreamy voice that guy has and the music is perfect for so many different moods.

right there with you - when I met my husband in college, he was in an acapella group and now he sings and plays guitar. What is it about men who can sing? I too love some Dave Matthews and Sinatra but I also love anything soul or country. Give me some Otis Redding or Keith Urban any day:)

I listen to everything. Okay, not that much country and not really any rap, but most anything else. I love string instruments and electronic music together in pretty ways. I adore bands like Mumford & Sons and Arcade Fire and the like. When I first graduated college, I used to go to so many concerts. I need to start doing that again.

And a guy who can play guitar and sing? I'd be a puddle.

Guitar is so sexy, I love those strong forearms. I listen to Adele, Regina Spektor, Feist, Ray Lamontagne, Coldplay, U2 and a lot of classic rock. Sometimes Jay Z and sometimes even Kanye.
