What are you listening to?

Are there any new songs/musicians/albums you’re listening to lately? Or do you have a long-time favorite that you want to share?

My new favorite singer is [name_u]Mal[/name_u] Blum, an acoustic singer/songwriter. I’ve been totally obsessed with them for the past two weeks and want to talk about them constantly :smiley:

In the last year I’ve gotten very into a band called The Dear [name_u]Hunter[/name_u] (not The Deerhunter! Very different!) and before that I got quite into [name_u]Kasey[/name_u] Musgraves who is a country singer. Whilst I was writing my MA dissertation I existed almost solely on the [name_m]Hamilton[/name_m] Soundtrack.
In the last two days I’ve listened to a lot of [name_f]Regina[/name_f] Spektor and The Medieval Baebes, I just started listening to one on spotify and it got out of hand.

Mostly broadway and any version of rock. I loovve [name_m]Banks[/name_m] and [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_f]Apple[/name_f], as some artists who aren’t rock… well, I guess [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_f]Apple[/name_f] is technically indie rock.

I love [name_f]Regina[/name_f] Spektor, [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_f]Apple[/name_f], and the soundtracks of various animes. RWBY has a great soundtrack, with vocals by a really talented singer, [name_u]Casey[/name_u] [name_u]Lee[/name_u] [name_m]Williams[/name_m]. The songs are written by her dad, [name_m]Jeff[/name_m] [name_m]Williams[/name_m], and she sings a duet in one of the songs with her mom, [name_u]Sandy[/name_u] [name_u]Lee[/name_u] [name_u]Casey[/name_u]

My kids demand Disney’s Descendants soundtrack be played at ALL times at TOP volume, so most of the time I’m listening to that. At work I keep [name_m]Edward[/name_m] Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, The Avett Brothers, and the new [name_u]Taylor[/name_u] Swift (don’t judge) on repeat.

I love Stormzy and [name_m]Jack[/name_m] Garratt a lot, my favourite songs are Blinded by Your [name_f]Grace[/name_f] and Surprise Yourself.

Right now, I love [name_m]Troye[/name_m] Sivan’s [name_u]Blue[/name_u] Neighbourhood album, Lorde’s Everybody Wants To [name_m]Rule[/name_m] The World, [name_f]Imagine[/name_f] Dragons’ Believer, [name_f]Lauren[/name_f] [name_f]Aquilina[/name_f]'s [name_m]King[/name_m], AC/DC’s Back in [name_m]Black[/name_m] and Panic! At The Disco, to name a few.

Right this second; Mcflys Party Girl!

But overall, music and artists right now; [name_f]Nicki[/name_f] Minaj, Terror [name_m]Jr[/name_m], Paramore, Twenty one [name_m]Pilots[/name_m], A [name_u]Day[/name_u] To [name_f]Remember[/name_f], [name_f]Julia[/name_f] Michaels… to name a few!

Like a Prayer- [name_f]Madonna[/name_f]
& as I started typing, it changed to [name_m]Don[/name_m]'t Speak- No Doubt

DH recently bought himself a record player as an early [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] present and lately we’ve been listening to a lot of vinyls, so a lot of 80s and other classics.

I listen to nursery rhymes with my two and four year olds. I’m still listening to Frozen with my six year old, even though she was only two when the movie came out. Other than that I’ve been listening to Transformation Church for the past two days.

Are there any new songs/musicians/albums you’re listening to lately? Or do you have a long-time favorite that you want to share?

Some of my long-time favorites include [name_f]Marina[/name_f] and the Diamonds, twenty one pilots, The Neighbourhood (my absolute favorite), [name_f]Beyonce[/name_f], and [name_u]Red[/name_u] [name_f]Velvet[/name_f].
Two new music discoveries of mine are SWMRS and [name_u]Gus[/name_u] Dapperton. Other than that, there are a few individual songs that I’ve been listening to lately- Regret You by Holychild (an absolute bop), Friends by [name_u]Chase[/name_u] Atlantic, and Pressure by Milk & Bone.

Some berries have similar taste to me and it’s so encouraging!
I just went to the Fall Out Boy concert thats been/is going to be on repeat for a while! :smiley:

Some other artists I like: Panic! at the Disco, twenty one pilots, My Chemical Romance, [name_m]Troye[/name_m] Sivan, [name_f]Marina[/name_f] and the Diamonds, [name_u]Billie[/name_u] [name_f]Eilish[/name_f], Dua Lipa, [name_u]Taylor[/name_u] Swift, [name_u]Halsey[/name_u], [name_f]Melanie[/name_f] Martinez, [name_f]Imagine[/name_f] Dragons, [name_f]Dodie[/name_f] [name_m]Clark[/name_m], [name_f]Grace[/name_f] VanderWaal, [name_f]Zara[/name_f] [name_m]Larsson[/name_m], [name_u]Sam[/name_u] [name_m]Smith[/name_m], [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] Puth, M83, [name_f]Demi[/name_f] Lovato, [name_u]Red[/name_u] [name_f]Velvet[/name_f], BTS, EXO, Twice, Blackpink, L.I.F.T & a few here and there in the top charts.
