Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

On Rotation

The Grammy Awards were last night and Mumford and Sons won Album of the Year for Babel. If you’ve been a reader for long at all you have heard me fangirl over M&S. Love ’em! They totally deserved the award–Babel is great.

Anywho, on to the other tunes finding their way into my head lately…

My friend K. introduced me to The Civil Wars while she was visiting me here in BG and they are {were} wonderful. Unfortunately, the duo (John Paul White & Joy Williams) have gone their separate ways and based on their chilly acceptance speech during last nights Grammys for Safe and Sound, it doesn’t seem like they will be reuniting any time soon. I’m really enjoying all of their stuff, so I couldn’t narrow it down to just one song!

The Civil Wars–Barton Hollow

The Civil Wars–Poison & Wine

Taylor Swift featuring The Civil Wars–Safe & Sound

I’m indifferent towards Taylor; however, she sang this song beautifully and is a great match for The Civil Wars’ sound.

One of my favorite groups from back in the day (aka, when Garden State came out)–The Postal Service–has a reported new album coming out sometime this year. The electronic-style duo, led by Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard along with producer Jimmy Tamborello, just released a song, A Tattered Line of String–which was a cut from their previous album, Give Up. It’s…meh. However, I have high hopes for their new stuff!

One thought on “On Rotation

  1. Fun stuff! I too have been getting into folky country. I really want to like the Civil Wars, but I have to admit there’s only a few of their songs that really get me going. I have been into Johnny Flynn and Andrew Bird lately, two other folky/country solo artists that are pretty soulful. And although it sounds lame, I’m addicted to the show Nashville. There’s some amazing tunes on that show!
