song obsession friday! (for the week ending april 3)

Song obsessions are those songs that we listen to on repeat. I noticed that my obsessions are often a week long. I also thought that other people might have similar obsessions. I’ve collected a panel of a few like-minded individuals and gotten their “song obsessions of the week.” Quite often it’s easy to explain why the song is good; it’s much hard to explain why we’re obsessed. Maybe you’ll become obsessed with one of these.

Adrian (me):

I’ve been listening to the s/t EP by Tallest Man on Earth since I saw him live. This one’s got a slinky, incessant quality to it that has it creeping into my head.

I’ve also still got “Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons running through my head.

Natalie:
Joel P. West – Pinhole (mp3) (barter for the original)

Saw him play it live with a string section and it absolutely blew me away.

Heard a friend’s daughter perform this Bob Dylan composition recently which made me seek out this gorgeous version of the song.
